Random Act of Kindness - Teddy Bear Giveaway
28 January 2016 – The Body Shop Malaysia gave away mini teddy bears to the children who are less fortunate in Chow Kit, Kuala Lumpur on Thursday night. Prior to the giveaway, The Body Shop Malaysia shared images of the teddy bears and encouraged followers on the various social media channels to name the bears. The respond was overwhelming, as there were 150 unique names submitted.
The Body Shop Malaysia teamed up with Feeding the Needy (FTN) to distribute the teddy bears. FTN is made up of a group of volunteers who volunteer their Thursday evenings to give out food and basic necessities to the less fortunate in the area. This time around, The Dental Association hopped on board and provided dental checks for both adult and children. The teddy bears were distributed to 60 children as a reward once they completed their dental check-up. This collaboration was mainly as a form of encouragement for the children to understand the importance of maintaining clean healthy teeth.
