Pay it forward during Ramadan – Team up with MILO® to provide needy families with a nutritious breakfast!

● For every $30 spent on MILO®® products, MILO® Singapore will donate a nutritious breakfast basket to a needy family
● Selected donors will be invited to an Iftar1 with beneficiaries and Fandi Ahmad and his family

MILO® Singapore together with local football legend, Fandi Ahmad and his family invite all Singaporeans and the Muslim community to pay it forward by sharing their blessings with the less fortunate this Ramadan.

To foster a spirit of gratitude and giving, MILO® Singapore spearheads a new Ramadan campaign, encouraging the community to gift a nutritious breakfast to needy families. By galvanizing the community, MILO® Singapore aims to raise 3,200 breakfast baskets for needy families under Tabung Amal Aidilfitri Trust Fund (TAA Trust Fund), allowing them to share the joy of celebrating Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

To contribute, spend $30 on MILO® products at major supermarkets from now to 11 June, register your contribution via MMS, roadshows, or mail (mechanics on how to register are appended below), and MILO® Singapore will donate one breakfast basket on your behalf to a needy family. The campaign will culminate with an Iftar1 in June where 10 selected donors and their family members will break fast together with a group of beneficiaries as well as Fandi Ahmad and his family.

On the rationale behind the Ramadan campaign, Mr Chow Phee Chat, Director, Marketing Communications and Corporate Affairs of Nestlé Singapore shared: “Ramadan is a sacred month marked by fasting and giving back to the society through charity work. That gave us the idea of partnering Tabung Amal Aidilfitri Trust Fund and roping in the community to help raise breakfast baskets for the less fortunate in the community. Through this campaign, we also want to remind and reinforce to our Muslim friends the importance of a wholesome and nutritious breakfast so they have enough energy to sustain them throughout the day’s fast.”

To ensure one has sufficient energy to sustain the day’s fast, food taken at pre-dawn (Sahur) should be wholesome. Food such as oats, multi-grain bread and MILO® are convenient and healthier breakfast choices that provide sustainable energy to keep hunger pangs at bay. MILO® which is specially formulated with ACTIV-GO contains PROTOMALT, B vitamins and minerals, providing consumers with energy to go further. For a nourishing start, two servings of MILO® Nutri GTM, formulated with wholegrains, oats and barley and wheat gives the fibre equivalent to a bowl of rolled oats.

Mr. Muhd Harmizan Head of Exco of Tabung Amal Aidilfitri Trust Fund heartily welcomes the collaboration with MILO® Singapore. “Over the past 25 years, Tabung Amal Aidilfitri Trust Fund has actively raised funds to help the less fortunate during the Ramadan period. The generous support and contributions from individuals and corporate partners like Nestlé Singapore is pivotal to making this year’s fund-raising a success. We welcome this new partnership with Nestlé and hope to provide all our beneficiaries with a meaningful and wonderful Aidilfitri.”
