Under the initiative, ‘10,000 Ways to Help’, the Japanese apparel retailer aims to collect 10,000 pieces of pre-loved clothing to distribute to homeless centres nationwide this Ramadan.
The initiative is in collaboration with the Malaysian Relief Agency, a humanitarian organisation, and the Kuala Lumpur Homeless Transit Centre, where UNIQLO established its first clothing corner in October.
As part of the initiative, UNIQLO will also be donating 10,000 AIRism masks to the homeless communities.
If you’re keen to join the clothing handover ceremony at the Kuala Lumpur Homeless Transit Centre, you can register at any of their Klang Valley stores.
“Our ‘10,000 Ways to Help’ initiative offers our customers the opportunity to repurpose their clothes in a meaningful and sustainable way, that is not only in line with the festive season’s practice of showing empathy for those who are less fortunate, but also UNIQLO’s recycling efforts,” shared UNIQLO Singapore and Malaysia chief executive officer Yuki Yamada.
