Bringing Malaysians from different backgrounds together
In conjunction with the #SaySomethingNice campaign during the Hari Merdeka – Hari Malaysia season, we want all of you to participate in organising a unity themed event called #HostSomethingNice.
The idea is simple : host a get together, makan-makan or rumah terbuka at your house, office, local parks or any other preferred place and invite friends, colleagues and acquaintances from different races and cultural background to join you to celebrate Hari Merdeka and Hari Malaysia.
We want to create moments of unity. Even though we are surrounded by a melting pot of cultures, we might not get many chances to get to know and engage with each other. #HostSomethingNice is an initiative to encourage Malaysians to practice what we are good at; being among friends, telling stories and enjoying food. We hope that it will bring us closer together by promoting mutual respect and understanding as well as provide a more holistic environment for our children, by encouraging them to mingle and befriend those from different backgrounds. Share the photos and stories of your event on social media or any other platforms to encourage others to follow suit!
Get-togethers will be conducted and highlighted during the 17-day campaign period from 31st August – 16th September. Having said that, we encourage Malaysians to #HostSomethingNice all year round!
