"Garnier's belief of 'taking care of others and the world around you' is also realized through the Sinar Cahayaku program, in which the brand plays the role of a big sister to show friendship, encouragement and care to orphan girls of the beneficiary homes," she said.
"In fact, female members of the Garnier community in this program are known as 'kakak-angkat'(foster older sister); and the orphan girls are affectionately referred to as 'adik-angkat'(foster younger sister)," she added.
Preceding the evening of celebration was a workshop where the lovely 'adik-angkat' spent some interaction time with their 'kakak-angkat'. They were treated to a motivational talk by Heliza Helmi, as well as a fun and games session with Lisa Surihani and Irma Hasmie.
Other than the celebrities, Garnier's Facebook community also turned up to lend their support to the girls. Invitations were extended in July through Facebook to supporters of the program to send in their Raya greetings to the 'adik angkat'. Those who sent in Raya greetings with the most sincere and warm-hearted messages were invited to meet the 'adik-angkat' in person.
"We received many beautiful and well-wishing Raya greeting cards after we opened up the invitation in Garnier's Facebook. These are truly big-hearted Malaysian women who would like to do their part to give back to the community and Garnier is very pleased to have provided this meaningful avenue for them," commented Low on the participation of Garnier Facebook fans.
As part of the program, Garnier has pledge to provide some financial assistance to the three orphanages in the program. In the Raya celebration following the afternoon workshop, Garnier officially presented its donation of RM 10,000 to each of the homes.
Thanks Cik Lily Putih for extended the invitation to me :)
