With the year-end holiday season and Christmas drawing near, it is the time of year where families and close friends not only come together to celebrate each other, but it is also a time of giving, reflection and looking ahead to the new year.
While Yayasan Generasi Gemilang has been running Christmas campaigns in previous years to raise funds for children in need; this year we wanted to do something different by spotlighting products made by local small businesses from the B40 communities. With how the lockdowns have impacted earnings of local small businesses, we hope that your purchase will enable these community vendors to increase their income. If you like the products, you could even support by purchasing their products directly in the future.
The two gift boxes we have curated for this Christmas are the “Afternoon Tea Gift Box” (RM50) and “Pamper Me Gift Box” (RM130). From delectable pineapple tarts, snackable popcorn, beautiful handsewn facemasks, to a lightly scented foot soak salt, the selections are bound to please anyone who loves a thoughtful gift.
Let's join hands to #supportlokal this Christmas and make it a meaningful one. Profits from the sale of these gift boxes will go directly to the vendors.
Find out more about the tenacious women behind these products in our next post "Inspiring Faces behind the Christmas Gift Boxes" and learn about their hopes and dreams for the future.
