Electrolux Washing-thon, 1st Outdoor Washing Marathon, 1-4 November 2012 @ Citta Mall

The brand Electrolux has always resonated with me because we used to own an Electrolux washing machine when I was little. Till today, I can still remember smelling freshly washed laundry that was almost a daily affair.

So, you can imagine my delight when I know that Electrolux Home Appliances Sdn Bhd is organizing Malaysia's FIRST Outdoor Washing Marathon called Electrolux Washing-thon from 1 to 4 November 2012 at Citta Mall, Ara Damansara, Petaling Jaya!

Electrolux Washing-thon is a corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative that aims to give back to the community in support of the needy and less privileged by washing and drying donated clothes from the society.

Quoting Mr Koh Soh Hoie, General Manager of Electrolux Malaysia and Singapore, "We, at Electrolux live the life of a thoughtful brand and we plan to continue delivering on this promise."

I believe they will fulfill their promise. :)

Throughout 1 to 4 November 2012, from 10am to 7pm, Electrolux targets to collect, wash, dry, and fold at least 3,000 pieces of clothes that will be distributed through Grace Community Services to kids and adults in need.

This is definitely a fun-filled event for everyone and a fun family day out for kids and adults, as well as a great initiative for active volunteerism to help the community.

Now, what can you do to participate?

#1: Donate used / usable clothes. 

A collection drive for used / useable clothes is going on from 17 till 30 October 2012. Be on the look-out for the Electrolux Washing-thon trucks at designated drop-off points throughout Klang Valley.

Find out the locations here.

#2: Join the Electrolux team as a half or full-day volunteer.
