Join us at Electrolux Washing-thon – 1st Outdoor Washing Marathon for charity to encourage thoughtful sharing

In support of the needy and less privileged, Electrolux Home Appliances Sdn Bhd will be organizing Malaysia’s first Electrolux outdoor washing marathon, a corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative that aims to give back to the community. Electrolux Washing-thon will be held from 1 November 2012 to 4 November 2012 at Citta Mall, Ara Damansara PJ.

“For this first outdoor Electrolux Washing-thon, the focus is on CSR activities that will benefit the less privileged community by washing and drying those donated clothes from the society. We, at Electrolux live the life of a thoughtful brand and we plan to continue delivering on this promise”, said Mr Koh Soh Hoie, General Manager of Electrolux Malaysia and Singapore. “Together with Citta Mall, Unilever, Harvey Norman and DB Schenker, we hope to collect, wash, dry and fold at least 3,000 pieces of clothes that will be distributed through Grace Community Services to kids and adults in need”, continued Mr Koh.

Throughout 1 to 4 November, from 10am to 7pm, Electrolux Washing-thon will be a fun-filled event for everyone and a fun family day out featuring a variety of games for kids and adults, as well as a great initiative for active volunteerism to help the community.

“We believe that a thousand small gestures can create spectacular results and we are encouraging and inviting everyone’s participation in any way you can to support this thoughtful initiative. Please donate usable clothes or join the Electrolux team as a volunteer for a half or full-day during the Washing-thon. Together, wehope to make this a huge success that will put a thousand smiles on as manyfaces as possible.” said Mr Koh.

Two weeks prior to the main event, there will be a collection drive for used clothes via the Electrolux Washing-thon trucks that will take place between 17 October and 30 October in the designated neighbourhood drop-off points in Klang Valley. Please contribute generously by donating clothes that are still in good condition.

Google Adsense Retires Advertisement for Feeds

Just read the notification from Google Adsense this morning:

Starting December 3, 2012, we’ll discontinue serving ads via AdSense for feeds on RSS feeds and you’ll no longer see feed units in your My ads tab.

For me since I last checked, feeds were not bringing me as much compared to my space here. I suppose Google Adsense may have found similar scenarios with others.

Or, maybe we can expect something new. Who knows. ;)
