KUALA LUMPUR: UEM Sunrise Bhd has launched the “National Smiles Campaign – Smiling Proud, Smiling Strong and Smiling Together” a comprehensive digital campaign to foster the spirit of unity and happiness as the nation celebrates its National Day, Malaysia Day, and World Smile Day.
In a statement, UEM Sunrise said the “National Smiles Campaign” aimed to spread cheer and bring smiles in light of the Covid-19 pandemic and the prolonged Movement Control Order.
“Aligned with the company’s C.H.I.E.F. values and inspired by Malaysians’ united and caring spirit, the series of digital initiatives are open to its customers and the public.
“At the same time, the smile is based on UEM Sunrise’s ubiquitous ‘Smiley’ symbol. Created as the brand expression, the ‘Smiley’ represents the look, feel, tone and manner that embodies the essence of joy and happiness,” UEM Sunrise said.
The campaign began from Aug 25 to Oct 1. Its initiatives include social media contests, a user-generated content video contest, a virtual race, and a planting workshop for UEM Sunrise customers in the ‘Trésor’ programme.
UEM Sunrise said Smiling Strong invites the public to share a video or a compilation of all things that inspire them or can inspire others.
