COINS FOR CHANGE is a movement initiated by the Putra Student Association to help change the life of underprivileged families through provision of financial assistance. The initiative comprises fundraising activity that encourages students and staffs of PBS in collecting coins, followed by the hand over of donation to target beneficiaries.
More than just a regular donation program, COINS FOR CHANGE will also provide an avenue for PBS family to contribute to society by giving out advices and technical assistance for the target beneficiary families to develop small and sustainable businesses.
The coin collection represents our hard work, sincerity and collaboration in the pursuit of doing meaningful contribution for the surroundings. This project has started on October 2014. The pilot project will be carried for 6 months and our objective is to collect RM 3000 in which the money will be distributed to one family in need.
Some activities that will be conducted to support this initiative are including charity run and ‘a jar of heart challenge’.
