#ShopeeGivesBack raised RM2.9 million to support underserved families

Donations to 40 NGOs sustains long-term community-building for B4

#ShopeeGivesBack, Shopee’s long-term community initiative, has collectively raised RM2.9 million across 2️⃣ years, through fundraising efforts with over 40 Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) to help underprivileged Malaysians in times of need

#ShopeeGivesBack which launched on 1 May 2020 during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, uses technology to help the underserved in Malaysia across four areas: underprivileged communities development, children & family services, health charities & environmental charities. The platform provides Malaysians with an online avenue to support their favourite causes in the most convenient way. Shopee ensures that these NGOs have credible track records & are registered with the Registry of Societies

RM2.1 million came through always-on platform donations as buyers shopped on a daily basis & made informed choices on which causes to donate to via the #ShopeeGivesBack dedicated microsite. 56% of donations raised through this channel went to B40 & community aid NGOs such as Pertubuhan Kasih Neelofa, Islamic Relief Malaysia & Pusat Jagaan Nurul Jannah. 20% of the funds raised went to NGOs providing medical kits & mobile clinics during floods such as MERCY Malaysia. 14% of the donations assisted partners like UNICEF Malaysia in meeting critical needs of marginalised children & their families in Covid-19. 10% went towards environmental causes such as Zoo Negara, where the funds aid in the annual food, enrichment, & veterinary care of the animals

RM800K was raised during special e-commerce campaigns helping targeted causes: Zoo Negara ticket sales for example raised over RM400K for animal welfare whereas over RM200K in flood relief funds (including RM100K matching contribution from Shopee) helped 1,300 families rebuild their lives after recent floods in Kedah, Kelantan, Selangor, Pahang, Terengganu, Johor, & Negeri Sembilan

Huiyan Pan, Head of Brand Marketing at Shopee Malaysia said, “Based on the estimates from our key community development NGOs, we would have provided food & essential supplies to over 3K families in dire need during the pandemic. Shopee is humbled to be able to obtain the support of our NGO partners & galvanise shoppers on our marketplace to contribute towards long-term sustainability of these communities.”
