KUALA LUMPUR, –Starting from next week, Malaysians can contribute RM1 to Tabung Harapan when they book a flight or hotel on Traveloka, one of Southeast Asia’s leading online travel booking companies.
Traveloka’s “Share Your Love for Malaysia” campaign was launched in a bid to boost the patriotic spirit among Malaysians as we approach Merdeka Day and Malaysia Day.
When customers make a flight or hotel booking via the Traveloka desktop website, mobile website or Traveloka App, all they need to do is add the code ‘MYHARAPAN’ when they reach the payment page and Traveloka will donate RM1 from the total payment to Tabung Harapan.
The donation campaign will run from July 16 to September 30.
Deputy Minister of Finance, Dato’ Amiruddin Hamzah, and Traveloka Country Manager for Malaysia and Singapore, Halif Hamzah, were present at the campaign launch, which took place at Hilton Kuala Lumpur.
Halif said that Traveloka’s Merdeka campaign, “Share Your Love for Malaysia”, was inspired by the generosity of Malaysians all around the world, who have pitched in to contribute to Tabung Harapan.
“We’re sure that many more wish to show their love for Malaysia, which was why we set up the campaign,” said Halif.
He added that through the initiative, it was now convenient for Malaysians to fill two needs – their love of travel and their love for the country – with one deed.
