Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many students in Malaysia had to resort to Online Distance Learning (ODL). However, not all students are so privileged to have the necessary equipment to attend these online classes.
Therefore, The Giving Bank, Universal Music Malaysia and HITZ FM did a collaboration and came up with a campaign called “Laptop for All”, in order to raise awareness and funds for this issue. Furthermore, an anthem called “We Live to Give” was written by several local artists and released in Malaysia to encourage Malaysians to donate to those who are in need.
We at OVER, came across this song on HITZ FM’s radio channel and we realized that the song is really meaningful and we also wish to do our part by helping these underprivileged kids.
The main reason why we would like to participate in this campaign is because the goal aligns with our mission, which is to support underprivileged kids in Malaysia. We understand how tough it is during MCO times and we believe it's much tougher for these kids when their only source of learning and seeing their friends is stripped away from them just because they cannot afford it. It's really saddening and heartbroken to see because they are the future leaders of this country and we want to do our best to support them.
Together with our new release, Alpha Red 2.2L and oversized bottles, 20% of the profit will go into supporting this campaign. We also donated RM1000 to kick start the campaign.
We are glad to announce that we have managed to raise RM650 in total for this campaign! From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank each and everyone of you for raising that amount. To some, it might not sound like a lot but never forget, a little can go a long way.
There are still many underprivileged kids in Malaysia and we at OVER would like to shine more light on this issue and hope more people will be aware of it. A verse from the anthem “We Live To Give” sang that: “Yesterday won’t stay the same, we help our brothers”, sounds very meaningful to us. We highly recommend that you go give this song a listen as it will give you goosebumps!
