Follow Me, a brand under Tohtonku Sdn Bhd has launched the Follow Me Buy & Donate Campaign 2016 that is currently ongoing from 20 October 2016 until 30 November 2016 to help raise funds for Rumah Caring Old Folks Home. Located in Kajang, Selangor, this non-profit old folks home, caters not only to citizens aged between 50 years to 95 years, but it also shelters wheel chair bound old folks who require special needs and attention.

According to Wendy Yap, Founder of Persatuan Rumah Caring Kajang, the home has been grappling with the rising cost of operations and provisions in the last few years. Apart from the daily basic household needs, nursing service and cost of health supplies are also increasing.

“The average cost of running the home is about RM14,000 a month. We are left feeling helpless at times without financial aid. Therefore, we are really grateful to receive donations from corporate and individual donors,” said founder, Wendy Yap. Through this campaign, Follow Me hopes to raise funds through the sale of any of its Follow Me products, where with every RM10 spent on Follow Me products, RM1 will be donated to the Follow Me Buy & Donate Campaign fund. The funding will be used to help fund the household expenditure of the Rumah Caring Old Folks Home.

“We are indeed moved by the fact that despite of the funding issues and uncertainties that looms over the shelter; this has never been taken as an excuse to compromise on the love and care the old folks deserve. As a well-established home grown brand in Malaysia, we feel compelled to do our bit to contribute back to the society. I sincerely hope that this campaign would garner support from the public and together we can help raise funds to provide better nursing, health and logistic care to the old folks and disabilities here in Rumah Caring Kajang,” said Jessky Hah, Product Manager of Follow Me.

The public who would like to support this campaign can head to any Tesco retail outlets in Malaysia to purchase their preferred Follow Me products. Follow Me products ranged from haircare, skincare to body care. Its a great cause to support and all you need to do is to buy the necessities that you need at home. A small favour goes a long way to some people, and what better way than to end the year with a good deed right? I know i'll be supporting the campaign, it may not be much but its a small contribution that might make someones day.
