Baiwago Plus Cafe Celebrates Motherhood with 50 Mothers and Single Moms

Baiwago Plus Café x HOPE worldwide Malaysia
“Mother’s Day Give Back”

While we celebrate Mother’s Day with our moms by showering them with flowers, gifts and a Cake, there are mothers out there who do not have plenty to celebrate. This year, Baiwago Plus Café collaborates with HOPE worldwide Malaysia to celebrate Motherhood with 50 mothers which include single mothers from the low-income families in Sentul.

To make ends meet, these mothers often hold on to at least two jobs, while juggling their time to take care of their children and household matters. Hence, Baiwago Plus Café decided to collaborate with HOPE worldwide Malaysia, an internationally affiliated non-profit and non-religious Charity Organization to reach out to 50 mothers and single moms in Sentul. Total of 50 Cakes will be given away to all 50 mothers. These Mother’s Day Themed Cakes are specially made and sponsored by Baiwago as a gesture of appreciation to the mothers.

The mothers and staff volunteers gathered at Centre of HOPE worldwide Malaysia this afternoon for the Give Back event. “We are grateful towards Baiwago’s thoughtfulness in organizing this event to appreciate our mothers and single moms from the Sentul community. Their sacrifices and motherhood are something worth celebrated for,” said Katy Lee, the Executive Director of HOPE worldwide Malaysia. She added on that some of these mothers often work overtime to support the family finances and raising up their children tirelessly. Katy also shared about one of the mothers, Puan Haliza who lost her husband in a sudden tragedy three years ago, despite her grief and sadness, still being the pillar of strength for her 5 children, one of which is a special needs child who suffers from cerebral palsy.

Besides supporting these mothers through the Free Medical Clinic and Monthly Food Distribution Program, the children of these mothers also invited to attend a series of Education programs on Saturdays. HOPE worldwide Malaysia worked with volunteers from corporate sectors and campuses to reach out to these children aged from 6 to 17 years old. “We hope that we can cultivate a sustainable partnership with corporate companies such as Baiwago Plus Café to create a greater social impact for our communities,” said Katy. The public is welcomed to sign up as a volunteer to support the organization through their website:

The Community & Volunteerism Talk 2019

CSR employee volunteering enhances your corporate culture to be more attractive to your employees. It is proven employees become more engaged and committed,  perform better in an organization active in  CSR employee volunteerism.

It seems easier said than done. So, let us help!

Since 2013, we have been conducting the Community & Volunteerism Talk to corporate companies, for their staff and management, to share with them the core values and massive benefits of CSR and how it can be made sustainable, and eventually enhance their corporate culture, which contributes to cultivating a healthier and more productive working environment.

This year, we added one more element in our Talk - Awareness on Mental Health & Wellness (aligned with Social Development Goal (SDG) by United Nation). An issue that no longer affected the underprivileged, but ALL OF US. We need to look into building a healthy connection within ourselves, it begins from Families. A healthy community begins with Healthy Families. Healthy families contribute to Social Betterment.

The 1-Hour Talk covers the topic on:
(1) What is your role in this Society? 
(2) What you should know before donating? 
(3) How can you be effectively involved in helping the community? 
(4) Screening of life-changing stories and motivational videos 
(5) Awareness of Mental Wellness by building connection within ourselves

This year, conducting the Community & Volunteerism Talk is our core focus. Hence we would like to share with you the companies we have been reaching out to, in the month of April:

Boston Scientific Malaysia

CMA CGM Malaysia Sdn Bhd (Both Bangsar & Shah Alam offices)

Excel Force MSC Berhad

Manforce Group 

IGB Berhad

Set a time with us today and find out more about the Community & Volunteerism Talk!

Poplook Aims to Give Hope This Year with New Sari Yanti Collaboration

29 January 2019, POPLOOK Gives Back X Sari Yanti X HOPE worldwide Malaysia Event Launch at Marmalade Cafe, Bangsar Village 2

Every year, POPLOOK teams up with public personalities who share their vision to give back to the community through fashion. This year is no different. To address the needs of children living in poverty via the organisation HOPE worldwide Malaysia, Poplook and Malaysian actress, Sari Yanti will be launching a special capsule collection.

In a private tete-a-tete with the brand last August, Sari Yanti discussed motherhood; the joys, challenges, and everything in between. The discussion brought everyone inevitably to the impact of rising costs on already underprivileged families.

“As a mother, I understand the desire I have to give my children the best of everything but I have seen how rising costs have affected our spending decisions. I can only imagine how hard it must be for families already struggling to make ends meet. I am excited to be part of this initiative to make a difference in what small way I can in the lives of children in need,” says Sari Yanti about her decision to collaborate.

“We’re excited to have Sari Yanti join us in our 5th cycle of the Poplook Gives Back Collection. In our daily lives, we tend to get caught up in ourselves and our needs. These initiatives help us see a little more into the lives of others, reflect on our blessings, and give back to those in need. We’ve been able to donate to some very worthwhile charities through these collections. Whoever said fashion and giving back cannot co-exist?” says Maryanne, co-CEO of Poplook.

The collection itself is a combination of Sari Yanti’s personal style and with the theme hope in mind. To symbolise hope, the design team selected the classic pearl. “Why the pearl? Just like an oyster that creates something valuable with what is essentially irritants; through this collection, we want to create a brighter future for children in challenging circumstances,” explains Poplook’s fashion designer, Nik Amanina Liyana.  Eight out of the 10 pieces in the collection will feature the pearl prominently.

The 10-piece collection will feature soft blouses, trousers, and even weighted knits in earthy, soft tones. The specially curated collection also includes a floral pantsuit in a structured fabric specially requested by the actress.

The collection is limited edition and will not be reproduced once sold out. Poplook pledges 25% of total sales to HOPE worldwide Malaysia to support children in need. The POPLOOK Gives Back initiative aims to continue supporting charities and initiatives that focus on the needs of women and children.

“Our customers are the reason Poplook exists in the way we do today, and since they are women, and mostly mothers, we want to focus on organisations that work on issues concerning them. It is our tribute to the amazing women, our customers, who keep us going every day,” says, Maryanne

Customers may log on to Poplook website to find out more on the fabulous fashion collections that dedicated to this charitable cause. 25% of the sales profit shall be channelled to HOPE worldwide Malaysia's community programs that help the children from low-income families.
