The online giving platform allows Malaysians to contribute by purchasing one of the four food parcel donation packs called #ParcelKebaikan which contains Milo powder and other Nestle’s products priced between RM25 and RM155.
A total of 430 units of #ParcelKebaikan were sold, all of which are distributed among seven charity organisations ― Human Aid Selangor, Kuching Food Aid, The Lost Food Project, Malaysian Relief Aid, Food Aid Foundation and Yayasan Pesona along with selected B40 families in Selangor identified through a partnership with Astro.
Aside from that, the prominent chocolate malt drink company had also pledged to donate one ringgit worth of selected Nestle products from every purchase of their products from their online store on Shopee.
Contributions via sales of #ParcelKebaikan and the matching donation came up to a total of RM120,000 worth of Nestlé products.
Milo consumer marketing manager Maria Murni Nur Azmi said Nestle Malaysia Berhad had extended their gratitude to Malaysians who had chipped in to channel aid to needy communities during the Hari Raya season.
