Members of the press and some of us bloggers from #BlooggersDotCom , #blooggers.com were invited to the Antabax & AEON Launch yesterday (27th December , 2013). I was privileged to be part of the few selected to join in.
The Antabax antibacterial personal care range and leading retailer AEON CO (M) Berhad are collaborating to celebrate and support the determination and perseverance of underpriviledged Malaysian through the campaign that was held at Old Wing One Utama.
The campaign will run from Dec 27 2013 to April 30 2014 and will see 10% of sales from all Antabax products through AEON outlets nationwide channeled to the 'With All Our Hearts' (WAOH) Malaysian AEON Foundation. This will then be disburse to deserving charities and homes.
The launch was a fun-filled affair with consumers flocking in to show their support by making pine shaped origami and personalized messages that they hung on a 3 meter pine tree. The messages are for motivating and encouraging children from charity homes. Antabax brand ambassador, acclaimed singer/actress Ziana Zain looked wonderful and fresh as she performed and entertained all those present.
The Miracle Pine of Rikuzentakata inspired the campaign. This particular 250 year old pine tree was the sole survivor of the March 2011 tsunami in Japan that swept away more then 70,000 trees in the area. It became a symbol of hope for the town people against all odds, determination and perseverance.
According to Lam Soon Edible Oils Sdn Bhd, Group Product Manager, Ms Angeline Sim, the 'Rising Together, Miracle Pine' campaign is the brand's first fundraising collaboration with AEON and is part of it's on-going Corporate Social Responsibilities activities that have benefited hundreds of underprivileged people.
Antabax is a trusted medicated brand that offers a complete range of antibacterial products to promote healthy and hygienic lifestyle.
Antabax cleans and removes 99.9% of germs to provide your family with 24 hours antibacterial protection. Dermatologically tested to be gentle on the skin, its formulation comes with additional essences and special ingredients, including anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of Vitamin C and E, as well as cell rejuvenating effects of essential Vitamin B Complex (B3, B5 & B6). It is also specially formulated with Derma Protect-System, an advanced moisturizing formula that contains Micro Moisture Serum to leave skin softer, smoother and healthy.
The Antabax team takes the plight of orphans and abused children seriously as many of them go through more challenges and hardships in their tender years than even some adults face. And while Antabax cannot erase the hurt, they intend to raise funds to ease these children's material needs uch as food, clothing, books, transportation, tuition fees, rehabilitation equipment and such.
As of such, 10% of all sales from any of its antibacterial personal care products which consist of shower cream, bar soap, hand soap, anti bacterial wipes, hand sanitizer gel and hand sanitizer spray, purchased from all AEON outlets nationwide will be channeled into this foundation.
On top of that, Antabax will be contributing one-years' of supply of their products to these homes, so that another of their daily needs will be met. In addition, the Antabax team will also be embarking on a tree-planting exercise to commemorate the Miracle Pine and their Pure Pine range with the hope that it will be a functional reminder of hope for the environment and determination to keep it green and clean.
