In light of the recent Jakarta floods, fashion e-commerce site Zalora Indonesia held a charity event called Zalora Fashion Fights the Flood – You Buy One, We Give One. It ran for three days until January 19th. The e-commerce company announced today that it donated around 1,900 clothes and 600 pair of shoes to the flood victims. The donations were distributed via nonprofit organization Pundi Amal SCTV to five shelter spots around the Jakarta area.
Multiply Indonesia is also holding a charity program to help flood victims called Saya Peduli. It is still ongoing and you can donate money upwards of IDR 50,000 ($5.20) from Multiply’s minisite here.
It’s great to see companies doing their part to help out people in need, and we hope we can see more actions like this in the wake of times of crisis.
