As one of the most awaited celebrations in Malaysia, the holy month of Ramadan is widely known as a time for fasting and self-reflection. But most importantly, it’s also a time of selflessness and an opportunity, not just for Muslims but all Malaysians, to support those who are going through difficulties – something that the past few years have shown Malaysians truly shine in.
Therefore, in conjunction with Ramadan and the upcoming Raya festivities, Grab Malaysia is inviting Malaysians to continue their acts of charity with ‘Jimat-Jimat, Ingat-Ingat’. Malaysians can turn their savings on Grab into good deeds by converting their GrabRewards into donations to various communities. In addition, Grab Malaysia will match the value of each and every GrabRewards donation made throughout Ramadan and Raya. Charities and organisations which users can support through the effort on GrabRewards include Islamic Relief Malaysia, PERTIWI, MERCY Malaysia and more.
Sharing the inspiration behind the effort, Hassan Alsagoff, Country Marketing Head of Grab Malaysia, says, “Whether it’s supporting a small, local business or helping an entire community to get back on their feet, Malaysians always go the extra mile to lend a helping hand. And being homegrown, we want to be right by their side every step of the way, making it even more seamless. With GrabRewards, we’re in a unique position to be able to offer Malaysians great savings and convenient opportunities to do good. By matching each donation, we not only hope to encourage this act of giving even more but show how every saving you receive on Grab is an opportunity to help others too.”
In addition to matching all GrabRewards donations made during this time, Grab is offering great deals and discounts across its services as well as rolling out other efforts to help with Malaysians’ festive needs:

On behalf of Grab, Salam Ramadan and Selamat Berpuasa,” concluded Hassan.
