Winners of the Yes Huddle XS Announced By Yes and PERTIWI
YES, the Fastest 4G Mobile Internet with Voice, announced the 14 winners for the Huddle XS – Small and Powerful Movement, focusing on random acts-of-kindness with the potential to effect positive changes within our society.
The Huddle XS – Small & Powerful Movement was conducted from 4 July 2012 until 31 August 2012 via www.yes.my. The public were encouraged to submit their ideas on random acts of kindness that would create positive changes in our community. The campaign garnered diverse and inventive responses from the public, eager to share their ideas to make the world a better place not only for their friends and family members but also for the wider community as a whole.
Amongst the 14 shortlisted winning entries was the idea of feeding the poor and needy. To bring life to the idea, Yes began working with PERTIWI Soup Kitchen on 28 November 2012 to contribute and distribute food packs and drinks to over 600 people in need within Kuala Lumpur’s inner-city. PERTIWI Soup Kitchen is a program under PERTIWI, an NGO that focuses on outreach, social work and the education of women, teens and children, and also provides free basic medical service, a Help Desk service and free street haircuts.
“Yes is championing this movement with the hope of inspiring small yet powerful selfless acts from the ever increasing net native generation by promoting the globally recognized ‘Pay-It-Forward’ concept. It is a reminder for today’s society to continuously perpetuate the importance of the human touch and values to ensure mankind’s virtues are not lost even as high-tech devices enable more remote, far-reaching online interaction,” said Mr. Chee Pok Jin, CMO of YTL Communications.

“At Yes, our mission is to bring positive change to the nation and our 4G network is built to cultivate collaboration and interaction between every person through the Internet as well as in the flesh. We hope that initiatives like this will encourage everyone to take their own steps in creating a positive change within our society. You will never know what your little act of kindness could change in one person’s life,” added Mr.Chee Pok Jin as he joined the winners of the Huddle XS – Small & Powerful Movement distributing food with PERTIWI Soup Kitchen volunteers.
Chong Siew Khim, one of the winners for Huddle XS – Small & Powerful Movement said, “I am happy that my idea has been realised by YES and I hope that the food distribution act will show everyone has a part to play in making a positive impact to society regardless whether it is a big or small gesture.”
YES is also participating in another food distribution drive today in collaboration with Kechara Soup Kitchen, a community action group that distributes food, basic medical aid and counselling to the homeless and urban poor of Malaysia.
