Charity Dinner & Movie Night
There I was a couple of nights back at Golden Screen Cinema in NU Sentral with the family. We were there to attend 11street (www.11street.my) 's Do Good Deals Charity Dinner and Movie Night. Along with its Brand Ambassador, actor-cum-entertainer Zizan Razak, 11Street celebrated a momentous milestone with 63 children from The Budimas Charitable Foundation handing over a donation of RM30,000.

With this donation, 130 school children from Sekolah Kebangsaan Sungai Burong, Tanjong Karang, Selangor would receive a nutritious breakfast, consisting of a main course, piece of fruit and a drink from now until the end of the year. The selection criterion was based on a family income of less than RM1,000 a month, whereby there are two or more children under their care.

The Budimas Charitable Foundation
Anne Rajasaikaran, Principal Officer of The Budimas Charitable Foundation said: "We extend a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to 11street for championing this initiative, and fellow Malaysians for this generous donation. For almost 18 years, The Budimas Charitable Foundation believes that there should be adequate food for everyone. We are grateful to utilise the fund to provide the school children with a wholesome breakfast and help them kick start their day with abundant energy.”

Do Good Charity Dinner and Movie Night
The donation was gathered from the ‘Do Good Deals – Beli Sambil Memberi’ campaign spear headed by 11street at the start of Ramadan from June 5 – July 20, 2016, and pledged to match every extra Ringgit contributed by its Raya shoppers on top of the retail price they were paying for their Hari Raya items.

The campaign was endeavoured to donate the funds to The Budimas Charitable Foundation and help support its programme – the Budimas Food Charity Fund – in ensuring that impoverished school children were fed breakfast.

After the cheque handover, 11street hosted a Hari Raya open house for children from The Budimas Charitable Foundation. They then received ‘duit raya’ from 11street and were treated to a movie – Ice Age: Collision Course. They got to spend some time with Malaysia’s beloved artist, Zizan Razak. It was certainly a night to remember for the children. It's nice to see charity events like these by big corporations. Giving back to those in need, I whole heartedly support this.
