When the COVID-19 pandemic started, Mossery took it upon ourselves to do our part in giving back to the community in need by using our creativity.
During the early days of the quarantine, we were brainstorming ways to give back and as a result, we decided on a fundraiser!
Our goal was to raise money to donate to two particular organisations that made it their mission to help the marginalised, The International Rescue Committee (IRC) and Mercy Malaysia.
In order to achieve that, we created a Personalised Portrait Commission service where our community had the opportunity to purchase a Care Card starting from $14.90, and choose a $5, $10, $15 or $20 donation towards the fundraiser.
By purchasing a Care Card, not only did you get to stay connected and bring joy to your loved ones despite the mandatory distance, you also donated to a cause that helps the disadvantaged.
We are thankful that all of you were on the same page and had taken the interest in participating in our fundraiser. We also want to give a special thank you to our influencers who generously donated their commission to the cause as well!
With that, we are proud to announce that from the duration of 13th April to 30th June 2020, we have raised a total of $630 USD and Mossery has matched the amount and donated a total of $1260 to both organisations!
50% of the total donation raised have been donated to The International Rescue Committee (IRC) to help those whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover, and gain control of their future.
*Due to the remittance fee which is automatically debited in a Wire Transfer, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) received $605 USD.
The other 50% has been donated to Mercy Malaysia who focuses on providing local medical relief, sustainable health related development, and risk reduction activities for vulnerable communities in both crisis and non-crisis situations.
We are thankful for everyone’s initiative to make this fundraiser possible!
Although we may not be playing an active role in saving lives, we hope that our donation can help these organisations continue providing daily necessities such as food, shelter, medical aid, and human compassion to people in need.
Thank you all again for making this possible and we hope to do more with our platform in the future!
