HEALTH supplement brand Chewies and Watsons Malaysia have come together to help children fulfil their dreams.

A competition called “I Have

A Big Dream” is being held to inspire children to express themselves through drawing and essay writing.

The drawing category is open to children aged four to six years old while the essay-writing category is for those between the age of seven and 12.

The essays can be written in any language with a 100-word limit.

Although the purchase of Chewies products is not required to enter the competition, its manufacturer, AJ Research and Pharma Sdn Bhd (AJRP), will be donating RM1 for every unit of Chewies product sold during the campaign to the top winner’s school.

Speaking at the launch of the competition at Golden Screen Cinemas’ Gold Class Lounge in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, AJRP chief executive officer Jerome Cabannes said the competition was part of Chewies’ main corporate social responsibility campaign this year in collaboration with Watsons Malaysia.

The company, he said, was offering its best products under the Chewies brand to help children grow while enhancing their immunity.

At the event attended by bloggers, parents and media members, six children took centre stage to talk about their dreams.

Among them was Nur Qaseh Durrani Iman, 11, who wants to be an excellent dancer. She said she would have to attend dance classes and stay healthy with Chewies to fulfil her dream.

There was also nine-year-old Nik Harraz Danish Mohd Yusoff, whose dream is to travel around the world with his family.

Meanwhile, eight-year-old Yee Shing Mann said her dream was to be a veterinarian so that she could help sick animals and prevent extinction.

“I like the tapir as it is very cute,” she added.
