The #SaySomethingNice has started on 31st August 2013 and our partners’ and supporters’ spaces are abuzz with their activities for the campaign. Until the campaign period ends on 16th September, our partners and supporters are spreading the message of #SaySomethingNice where they showcase the best of Malaysia while doing something good for the nation. This is what some of our partners and supporters have been doing with the #SaySomethingNice campaign so far.
On 29th August 2013, the #SaySomethingNice campaign was kicked off officially with Sunway Pyramid’s launch. Supporters of the campaign, friends of zubedy, and members of the media came to make the event a memorable one.
After the launch, Sunway Pyramid surprised its shoppers with giving away 1,000 flowers and balloons to everyone. Each of these flowers and balloons came with small notes of cheer and happiness that put a smile on everyone’s face.
For the stretch of the campaign, Sunway Pyramid has provided a space for other supporters of the campaign to showcase their way of doing the campaign. The booths at Sunway Pyramid welcome shoppers to write positive messages on Post-Its and put the up on pillars for others’ delight. Other than that, posters of #SaySomethingNice are given away at the booth as well.
Sunway Pyramid is giving more flowers and balloons to visitors on every weekend until the campaign period ends.
