CAROUSELL CELEBRATES MALAYSIAN HEROES WITH #MYLOCALWIRA CAMPAIGN IN CONJUNCTION WITH MERDEKA DAY

August 31, 2019

Let’s participate and give support to this #MYLOCALWIRA Campaign to form a better community! Carousell, one of the world’s largest and fastest-growing mobile classified marketplaces, kicked off a nationwide pro-social effort today, #MYLocalWira, as part of a month-long effort that runs until August 31 in conjunction with Malaysia’s upcoming 62nd Independence Day!


To celebrate the occasion, #MYLocalWira calls on Malaysians’ well-known spirit of generosity, with the support of notable Malaysians – squash legend Datuk Nicol David, Malaysia’s first female ONE Championship mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter and Global Citizen Ambassador Ann Osman, international model and renowned fashion and beauty entrepreneur Amber Chia, professional motorsport athlete and Malaysia's "Drift Queen” Leona Chin, world-class diver Leong Mun Yee and national gymnast Farah Ann. Each of these individuals has contributed several personal items to be sold on Carousell, with the proceeds going to a charitable cause.


“Many Malaysians are blessed with more than we need, while others need a helping hand. With the #MYLocalWira campaign, we are working with prominent individuals to sell their preloved items on Carousell in a generous act of ‘giving back’ to the Malaysian public who have supported them for years. We also expect that fans will find it very meaningful to acquire a personal item that has played a role in their hero’s career. With #MYLocalWira, we honour the Malaysians who make us proud, and hope their shining example will inspire others to do great things,” said Mr Tang Siew Wai, Country Head, Malaysia, Carousell Malaysia.

The full proceeds from the sale of these items will benefit Parents without Partners, a charitable organisation established to help single parents in need.

Mouse mommy also support in this good cause by purchasing the art, craft, preloved items from the Carousell. Hope this little contribution can bring love and hope to the single parents in need. 

Funds are raised primarily through the sale of preloved items at their thrift store, Jumble Station, which relies on public donations, and the proceeds from #MYLocalWira will help support expenses such as rent, groceries and school supplies. Download the Carousell app from the Apple Store or Google Play Store.
