Who are we? Why should you trust us?
As mentioned earlier, we are a crowdfunding group made for "Business Skills for Engineers" module by School of Engineering, Taylor's University. Our main purpose for the assignment is to dive into the world of crowdfunding platform, and run a successful crowdfunding campaign.
We have partnered with three charity organisations : Dignity for Children, UNCHR Malaysia and Tenaganita where the raised fund will be 100% donated to the organisations equally. All the donation made to organisations will be updated on our Facebook and Instagram. Hence, each organisation will get $100 equivalent to Rm 400.
What difference can a $10 make?
According to the current currency market rate, $10 is equivalent to MYR 41.6. Malaysia is one of the cheapest country in terms of food cost. It is estimated per day a meal can cost ranging from MYR 8-10 according to Numbeo.com. Since most of the charity centre have in-house chef, the cost can go as low as MYR 4-5 which means with just $10 you are able to feed a refugee for 8 days! In addition, to that a refugee can also buy clothes that can range from MYR20-30. Refugees who are still in their childhood can also buy the toys that they have always yearned. There are so many things that can be done with a mere $10 which will occupy the entire space. Imagine the possibilities and benefits a $100 can bring to a refugee center.
