Samsonite (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd is collaborating with Make-A-Wish Malaysia to create life-changing wishes come true for children with critical illness through its “Luggage Trade-In Programme”. With this, customers may trade-in their used luggage at participating Samsonite stores and receive up to 40% off their purchase (for selected Samsonite luggage).
Every traded in luggage, Samsonite will pledge RM10 to Make-A-Wish Malaysia. Pre-loved bags received will also be assessed and those which are still in good condition will be donated to Make-A-Wish Malaysia to be used or distributed at their discretion.
“We believe that every child should have the opportunity to experience fun and laughter in their life’s journey, despite their battle with illness. We also strongly believe in giving back to the community and what better way to do so than to give hope to children for a better tomorrow. After all, children are our hope for the future.” says Ambert Khoo, Country Head of Samsonite (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd.
Meanwhile, Irene Tan, CEO of Make-A-Wish Malaysia adds: “We are honoured to be collaborating with Samsonite (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd for this wonderful campaign. As a self-supported non-government organisation, we rely solely on fundraising and donations from corporations and individuals to enable us to continue our mission of granting the wishes of children who are suffering from critical illnesses. Up to 2018, we have granted over 423 wishes to children in Malaysia and we hope that through this programme, we are able to grant more wishes.”
