Blackmores was founded in Australia in the 1930s by Maurice Blackmore, a naturopath with a vision and passion to provide natural health products and information to people. Through decades of intense research and development in the healing properties of natural herbs and minerals, the company has expanded globally and become well-known for its high-quality vitamins and dietary supplements (VDS) and for its integrated and holistic approach to healthcare in the quest for a healthier and happier world.
Launched in Malaysia in 1976, Blackmores offers a wide range of health and dietary supplements including the basic Multivitamins and Vitamin C range and those that are targeted at specific conditions such as CoQ10 and the Heart Health range, among others. Blackmores has been performing well in the Malaysian VDS industry with an average Compound Annual Growth Rate of 16% for the past five years. Following this achievement, Blackmores is also the recipient of many accolades and awards including the Most Trusted Vitamin and Supplement Brand in the 2012 Readers Digest Most Trusted Survey and won the Superbrands Awards.
So recently Blackmores celebrated their 80th Anniversary & kick started the 80 Deeds Campaign by donating RM80,000 worth of Blackmores supplements to 25 old folks homes and underprivileged children homes in the Klang Valley & Selangor, more on that here [link]. In conjunction with that Blackmores also invites their fans & followers to follow their good deed and submit them to firstname.lastname@example.org! Participants have the chance of winning the Grand Prize of 2D/1N stay at Avillion Port Dickson and a Blackmores hamper worth RM800, while the 2nd to 8th prize winner will each receive a Blackmores hamper worth RM800.
I think my best good deed of the year must have been promoting everyone to donate to Islamic Relief Malaysia as a birthday gift for myself during last Ramadhan. Within less than a month, with Allah's bless and the help of my friends I managed to collect around RM56765.00 of cash and a whole lot of bundle of used clothing & books for donations!
Speeches & handing over the cheque to the Country Director of Islamic Relief Malaysia.
During one of the meet-up point where me & my friends collected donations from generous people at Hello Deer. Yes those boxes filled up 3 cars to the brim! One of the happiest days of my life ♥
More on that good deed over here!
