PETALING JAYA: The disadvantaged group are one of the most affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
As such, the Crisis Relief Squad of MCA (CRSM) has collaborated with GoCare’s #BeMYHero Community Caring Project to launch a campaign to help the underprivileged with the cooperation of merchants.
Called the Dropshipping Campaign, it is an initiative that enables underprivileged individuals to become product distributors or agents, where they sell products for charity, while earning a commission.
The will help poor families, especially single-parent families and the unemployed, said Wanita MCA chief Datuk Heng Seai Kie in a statement.
The distributors will be known as “GoCare Little Angels” and will need to secure their customers through personal contacts, online platforms or social media, without the need to ship or store goods.
Upon receiving confirmed sales orders from the distributors, the suppliers will send out the products directly to the distributors’ customers, and the distributors will be paid commissions.
The campaign was launched online and hosted by GoCare manager Xilas Ngang yesterday.
Those who attended the event were CRSM national chief and GoCare consultant Datuk Natalie Lim Chong Ly, Wanita MCA secretary-general Saw Ooi Leng, MCA Youth secretary-general Daniel Wa, LA Branding Corporate Strategist Amelia Ong and Asia Super Technology (AST) Chemical Group CEO Ng See Keong.
In a statement, CRSM and GoCare said 20 merchants selling face masks, mooncakes, disinfectants and more will come together for the first stage of this campaign to assist 1,000 underprivileged people through this pandemic.
Sellers onboard this campaign so far include Callie Mask, AST Chemical Groups, Savelives, Uncle Lua Durian and Oversea Mooncake.
Lim said the project brings together partners and enthusiasts from various fields to provide assistance to those in need, such as through donations of essential supplies, job opportunities or online courses.
GoCare is an initiative under CRSM to assist underprivileged groups and individuals through charity fundraising from the public.
GoCare previously launched an online recruitment platform, #BeMYHero Hunt Zone, that enables firms to search for qualified employees while also assisting those in need of job opportunities.
The statement said GoCare will continue to work with various merchants to implement “Dropshipping” to help the needy.
