A smile for every child @Mattel’s Happy Playcation campaign

Monday, August 30, 2021 0 Comments A+ a-

With the objective of bringing A Smile for Every Child, toy company Mattel popular for signature brands like Hot Wheels, Uno and Barbie will be collaborating with e-commerce platform Shopee to send out toys worth up to RM100,000 as both companies look to address the need to uplift the spirits of underprivileged children during these turbulent times.

Pledging one toy for every order made via selected stores, Mattel and Shopee, as well as NGOs Dignity for Children Foundation and the Childhood Cancer Caring Society of Kuala Lumpur (CARES), are partnering on a special campaign called Happy Playcation taking place from 1 till 3 September 2021.

The participating stores are the Mattel, Barbie, Hot Wheels and Fisher-Price official stores on Shopee. To further encourage Malaysians to support the campaign, Mattel will offer up to 30% off on its toys during the campaign period.

Murat Ariksoy, General Manager of Mattel Continental Asia said, “We acknowledge the adverse impact of the global pandemic on children in terms of learning and simply having a memorable childhood. We are launching this campaign with the common goal of uplifting the next generation. We strive to enable all kids to feel like children again with this partnership, while seeding joy into the community and helping parents with our learning toys.”

This campaign is part of the #ShopeeGivesBack movement, which is aimed at creating awareness and driving donations for various charitable organisations to support their respective causes from healthcare and underprivileged communities to the marginalised, including animals.

Having started in 1998, the Dignity for Children Foundation provides education and care for marginalised and urban poor children in Kuala Lumpur. It currently serves over 1,700 children and youth aged 2-19 years, mainly operating education programmes in Sentul.

Liew Tong Ngan, Dignity's Director of Marketing and Communications said, “We are extremely grateful to be receiving these wonderful toys from Mattel to be distributed out to our children and youths. A very big thank you to Mattel and Shopee for remembering the underserved and allowing the young and old to reach their full potential through play.

Meanwhile, CARES is a non-profit NGO formed by parents whose children have been diagnosed with cancer, medical professionals and caring volunteers. CARES’s mission statement is to improve the quality of life and well-being of children and teens with cancer and at the same, to provide social support for the families and caregivers of the sick child while they undergo treatment for their medical conditions.

Ms. Margaret Low, CARES President said, “We’re honoured to be a part of this movement that will surely leave a positive impact in the lives of those children receiving these toys. Hopefully more meaningful initiatives like Happy Playcation will be executed down the road to continue inspiring these special individuals of our community.”

Shopee Malaysia Senior Manager (Business Development) Zed Li said, “At a time when members of the community are battling with their own struggles to get through this difficult period, it is all the more important that we lend a helping hand in the best way that we can. The underprivileged children are a group whose needs should not be neglected, especially now, and it is crucial that we help alleviate the pressure they may be facing. Mattel’s Happy Playcation campaign seeks to do just that. We’re hopeful that this initiative will bring positivity to their lives, beyond the fun that they can have with the Mattel toys. We commend everyone involved for their efforts and are pleased to provide our support to Mattel’s Happy Playcation.”

This campaign coincides with Shopee’s 9.9 Super Shopping Day which has something in-store for all its users and is currently taking place till 9 September. Buyers can look forward to claiming Free Shipping and 99% Coins Cashback vouchers, both with no minimum spend.

On top of this, the Happy Playcation campaign will stream Shopee Live sessions to showcase how Malaysians can assist in bringing a smile to a child in need. The first Shopee Live guest session was held on 27 August at 3PM, which featured a guest speaker from the Dignity for Children Foundation.

The next session on 1 September at 8.30PM will host guest speakers from CARES, who will further highlight how this campaign will bring cheer to the children. Exciting giveaways and an unboxing session of Mattel toys will also take place.

The Happy Playcation campaign is also launched in collaboration with Shopee Mum’s Club, a one-stop shop for all mothers’ needs for their child. The club shares the same aspirations of bringing happiness to a child, even beyond a mother’s own. Happy Playcation will be handing out exclusive vouchers to club members to encourage participation of the campaign among the community of mothers.

Shopee rolls out company-wide staff vaccination programme to protect employees and shoppers

Tuesday, August 17, 2021 0 Comments A+ a-

In a bid to further its commitment in the fight against Covid-19, Shopee announced today that it is participating in the private sector vaccination programme with the aim to have its employees fully vaccinated against the virus. 

Shopee revealed that it has prioritised its frontliners from its logistics arm, Shopee Express, as well as teams working in the warehouses as they face the highest risk and have the most potential interaction with shoppers.  

Commenting on this initiative, Terence Pang, Chief Operating Officer at Shopee said, “Our employees are the backbone of the organisation. Their safety, together with that of our users, is our utmost priority especially as the pandemic continues to affect the lives of Malaysians. We seek to safeguard the health and well-being of our people better against Covid-19 through this exercise, whilst contributing to the nation’s goal of achieving herd immunity.”

This measure is also part of Shopee’s reassurance to its users for a better and safer online shopping experience as reliance on e-commerce deepens. Pang shared, “This effort is even more important as we ramp up towards the year-end shopping season, which has always been a highlight for the people and businesses in the country. We want to do our part to help everyone shop with a peace of mind and to help local businesses sell with greater ease and certainty. 9.9 marks the start of the shopping season and I hope that by making buying and selling safer, we can bring smiles to more Malaysians.”

This commitment comes ahead of the e-commerce platform’s flagship 9.9 Super Shopping Day which is the first of its four end-of-year shopping festivals. 

The upcoming 9.9 Super Shopping Day, which will take place from 20 August leading up to the peak day on 9 September, also has something in-store for all its users. Shoppers can look forward to claiming Free Shipping and 99% Coins Cashback vouchers, both with no minimum spend.  Above all, users can also stand a chance to win a brand new Mercedes-Benz by participating in the Play & Win Mercedes-Benz game by collecting golden tickets daily.

With 25 August just around the corner, Shopee will also be holding its August 25 Payday Sale which will feature RM25 Knockout Deals where shoppers can get items such as Samsung Galaxy A12, Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair, Armaggeddon Shuttle II Premium PU Leather Ultimate Gaming Chair and more for just RM25. 

Aside from the employee vaccination programme, Shopee has been championing the fight against

the pandemic since the onset of Covid-19.

It allocated 1 million Shopee voucher packs worth RM40 each through the #ShopeeAjakVaksin campaign to reward Covid-19 vaccine recipients at selected vaccination centres across the country to encourage the public to stick to their vaccination appointments. Last year, together with the Malaysian Medical Association (MMA), Shopee raised about RM1 million in a public donation drive to support the nation’s medical frontliners.

On the business community front, Pang stated that the e-commerce platform introduced a RM15 million Shopee Seller Support Package in April 2020 to help traditional businesses who were facing cash flow problems due to the lockdown. “Following which, we introduced a Shopee Marketplace Growth Package providing benefits of up to RM1,600 in store vouchers and advertising credit to help existing Shopee sellers grow on the platform. Both initiatives not only drove digitalisation of local MSMEs but also cushioned the adverse impact of the pandemic on their businesses.”

He added that on top of this, Shopee supported consumers with additional free shipping vouchers through its “Stay Home, Stay Safe” campaign to give Malaysians access to essential items such as fresh and frozen groceries, cooking ingredients, beverages, snacks and cereals, milk formula, diapers, personal care products, household essentials, pet food and work-from-home equipment online.

Mangiamo! It is time to hop onboard Marrybrown’s latest gastronomical adventure around the world, this time to the second destination in the beautiful country of Italy! For the past 40 years, Marrybrown has been known for serving crispy chicken, fragrant and heart-warming nasi lemak, various Malaysian goodness and most importantly, always introducing “something different” in every meal. This time they are introducing their latest delicacy, an Italian feast that could even make the great Godfather, Don Vito smile for us fellow Malaysians to dig into and enjoy.

In celebration of its 40th Anniversary, Marrybrown (the largest homegrown Halal fast-food chain) has upped the ante by ensuring that they stay true to their mission when it comes to providing something different. Sparking the adventurous spirit in Malaysians with their latest Around the World themed meal, Marrybrown Eatalian (available from 5 August onwards) brings a tantalising taste to our locals combined with the feeling that is out of the world yet close to home with every bite.

“Malaysians are truly unique when it comes to our identity, culture, traditions and our never-ending love to open our minds and taste buds. When it comes to going on an adventure to discover new gastronomic wonders, we are definitely up for it - which is why Marrybrown always want to ensure that our meals are always something that Malaysians find joy and comfort in indulging,” said Dato’ Joshua Liew, Chief Executive Officer of Marrybrown.

“Similar to the feeling we get when we travel – the sense of voyage hyping our spirit when we dive into new experiences and food, we want our fellow Malaysians to relish in that kind of adventure again. Although we are unable to travel yet, let us at Marrybrown re-create this adventure for our fellow Malaysians with meals that bring us around the world from the comfort of our safe place,” added Dato’ Joshua.

The new Marrybrown Eatalian is truly Chef’s Kiss! With the MB Spaghetti cooked to perfection, fans can enjoy a hearty meal served with a super rich and robust chicken bolognese sauce topped with the finest herbs and cheese. Our memang best fans can savour our spaghetti on its own or the MB Spaghetti combo paired with our beloved Crispy Chicken and a refreshing cup of Coca-Cola starting from RM19.90.

But of course, no Italian meal is complete with spaghetti alone. To ensure fellow Malaysians enjoy the meal to the fullest, Marrybrown is introducing MB Italian Cheesy Rice Bites guaranteed to make Malaysians go “MMMMM” with just one bite! Putting a local twist to the luscious risotto, you can taste the warmth and voluptuousness of the insides of the MB Italian Cheesy Rice Bites that is cooked till golden brown on the outside. In addition to this, fans can enjoy the Mushroom Soup that is ideal for those who are looking for a starter to kick-start their appetites or for those who want to enjoy a spoonful of smooth and velvety soup on a cosy day in. Fans can choose to add-on any of this to any available menu from RM2.50 or just enjoy them on their own from RM3.80.

For Malaysians who are looking to enjoy the overall Eatalian experience or to share it with their loved ones, the MB Italian Box Meal would be ideal! Not only can you enjoy the delicious MB Spaghetti, it also comes with Crispy Chicken, MB Italian Cheesy Rice Bites, Chicken Burger and a cup of Coca-Cola to quench one’s thirst during this hot weather from RM27.90.

“Our ‘first trip’ to Korea was a success and we hope to continue lifting the spirit of fellow Malaysians by introducing innovative meals through our second destination and more to come! We hope that during this time, our meals can keep Malaysians at home comfortably as we go through this difficult period of time,” concluded Dato’ Joshua.
