ShopBack gives back to charity

Online cashback site ShopBack Malaysia recently launched a new charity initiative, roping in four different non-government organizations.

Online cashback site ShopBack Malaysia recently launched its new #ShopBackGiveBack initiative, where shoppers will now be able to channel their Cashback funds that they get from online purchases through to four non-profit organizations: Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK), The Budimas Charitable Foundation (Budimas), The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) of Malaysia, and World Vision Malaysia.

“The act of giving is embedded in ShopBack’s DNA as the core of our business involves giving Cashback to the online shoppers. Although we are a startup and may have certain resource constraints compared to bigger corporations, we are keen to help and contribute to the best of our capability,” Gil Carmo, Country Head of ShopBack Malaysia, said in regards to the company's new program.

Each of these organizations are committed to a different cause, and depending on which body you support, you’ll be helping out in different ways. For instance, KSK offers homeless and urban poor people vegetarian food, basic medical care, and welfare assistance, while NKF Malaysia subsidizes dialysis treatment for patients with renal kidney failures.

ShopBack boasts as many as 280,000 Malaysians having benefited from their daily Cashback offers and promotions, giving them the option to cash out their Cashback once it exceeds RM10, or to transfer their extra savings to help the needy through the new program.
