    • a. Executive Summary This report is all about our group's charity drive. The objective of our group to having this charity drive is to raise the awareness of people to against poverty and protect the children and support World Vision Malaysia. Our goal is to gather at least RM 1200 for World Vision Malaysia during the charity drive event. Our target market will be the student who study at Taylor's University Lakeside Campus or other nearby college's students. The products that we sold during the charity drive event are herbal eggs, jelly, crabsticks and accessories. We set the price at more than 2 times of its cost price. Besides, our product packaging are all eco friendly except for herbal egg, we used plastic bag because of saving cost. We had a few competitors during this charity drive, the top 2 competitors are Charity Donation and Ice. Therefore, we do some promotion like create a Facebook page, pasting poster and so on to compete with them. At the end of the charity drive event, we realize that we did some mistake during this charity drive. However, we hit our target and gather in total RM 1601.75 for World Vision Malaysia. 1
    • b. Objectives The objective of having this charity drive is to raise the awareness of people to against poverty and protect the children and support World Vision Malaysia.

While World Vision is an international Christian relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty. World Vision serve all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender. Therefore, our group decided to support World Vision Malaysia by donating all our profit to it.

    • c. Target Market Our primary target market, comprising young adults aged between 18 to 24 years old, is estimated to be about seventy (70) percent of Charity Drive’s total sales target which consists of students who are studying at nearby colleges or educational institutions such as Taylors University Lake Side Campus and others. Charity Drive’s business strategy is to position itself as a catchment area whereby students from nearby education institutions can meet up with friends or other people to fulfill whatever their needs are. From our observation, most of the students in the campus and other places need a common place or focal point to gather for chit-chatting or socializing purposes after long periods of studying in their learning environment. Moreover, these students do not really have the time to visit the mall for shopping or entertainment purposes so our booth on the other hand provides them the opportunity to meet up whilst exchanging ideas and do a quick shopping spree. Our business entity shall also focus on social networking approach and actively cultivating a “cool” and trendy image to attract the youth to purchase items for sale and at the same time to generously contribute towards the welfare of the children under the Malaysian Vision 2020 in a conducive environment. The base location of Charity Drive business is at Taylors University Lake Side Campus, thus many customers are students from this campus. Most of the students live in the campus accommodations and they come from families’ whose incomes vary from middle class to high class categories. Thus, they would be likely to have a high spending power and affordability to purchase our products for charity purposes. 3
    • d. Competition Analysis Throughout this charity drive, we have two main competitors which are Charity Donation and Ice. Charity Donation which located at first row first column of Student Life Centre. They sold Differentiated T-shirt and Toys. Their strength is promotion when you buy more. For example, one shirt is cost RM28, when you buy two it cost RM25 for each shirt. Last Friday was Valentine’s day, they sold packaging couple toys. While they still have some vulnerabilities which are they don’t have much size for every shirt. For example, if two person want M size of shirt but they only got one. Beside, most of the shirts are couple shirt, which mean single person hard to buy for one only. People will buy from them because they sold in cheap price. They sold a toy for RM15 only but our toys sold one for RM38. Probably people willing buy from them because they choose a good location which at first row first column so people easily to see them. On the other hand, Ice also our competitor as they selling the same product with us. Both of us are selling jelly, they are selling soya with longan jelly while we are selling herbal jelly. Their strength is using something cheaper to earn more profit. Soya with longan jelly ingredient is cheaper than herbal jelly ingredient. While they still have vulnerabilities which is the product can’t sell whole day. For example, they 2 main products which are ice potong and soya with longan jelly. We mostly start our business from nine o’clock in the morning, thus they can’t sell their product from morning due to seldom people will buy cold thing to eat in the morning. Customers willing buy with them because the jelly was sweet and most people like to eat sweet. But our jelly more on beneficial to the body so got a little bit bitter. Besides, they also have promotion which buy one for RM3 while buy two for RM5. 4

    • g. Promotion The objective of any promotional activities is to create awareness among those who have not heard of the campaign, products or ideas that are being propagated. We are supporting World Vision Malaysia’s cause of helping children, families and communities to reach their full potential by eradicating poverty irrespective of religion, race, gender, etc. Our marketing message is “educate all child’” because through education, the chances of poverty can be minimized and the children can expose their minds to various technologies, skills, specialized areas of expertise and other fields necessary to equip them for their adult working life. One of the tools of promotions is advertising. In this exercise, we are raising funds for the World Vision Malaysia through a charity event on 10 February till 14 February 2014 at in front of the Student’s Life Centre, Taylor’s University. By pasting the poster and placing a donation box at our stall, we are in fact creating an impact to the target marketing audience and usually this form of advertisement is the most effective promotional method. Advertisement can also be in the form of the digital format whereby the marketing message and the notice of the coming event can be circulated through internet and the web. This technological mode encompasses the emails, Facebook, Twitters, etc. and this approach appeals to all internet generations and web-users. The other tool of promotions is the face-to-face encounters with the staff and students by informing them verbally of the coming charity drive event on a friendly basis. There is a human touch and personal contact through this promotional method and it is equally effective if it is done passionately and on a dedicated manner by all participants. Facebook Page 11

    • i. Distribution Our sales outlet will offer a full complement of services, including colorful and attractive wrappings, brief description of the products and how they are made, easy ordering mechanism and fast delivery system, customers’ loyalty programs among others. With such provided good services rendered to our customers, we hope not only to attract customers but to retain them for repeat sales. Our products are for sale online before Charity Drive’s actual launching date. We had to make an order for the raw materials of our products from the suppliers much earlier beforehand. Our products are displayed online through several social websites, such as Facebook before we intend to sell them at the stall during the launching date so that they do not have to wait for our products. Since the business shall also generate funding towards charities such as the Malaysia Vision 2020 which is quite well known in our country, we have approached customers for donation and support by purchasing our products. In fact, there are quite a number of customers who donated generous amounts of monies in support. Previously, we had set up an online page, making our products obtainable around the area and at the campus. Customers may order our products through Whatsapp, Facebook message and phone calls through the advertisement and people promoting our page on Facebook. 14
    • j. Green Measurement The chosen product we choose to sell was not environmentally friendly. The product was herbal egg. The eggs that we sold were packed in a plastic bag. After our customers finished eating the eggs, they immediately throw away the plastic bag. To reduce the hazardous effects, the other products that we sold did not provide any plastic bag towards the customer. The other products that were sold were packaged nicely and could be reused. For example, jelly and crabsticks. These two goods are packed into plastic containers. These containers are recyclable and reusable. To reduce carbon footprint during the distribution stage, less plastic bag should have been done. Other than the herbal eggs, none of the other products used plastic bag. All the products were sold and the plastic bag from the herbal egg was thrown to the rubbish bin. Other than the herbal eggs that needed to use electricity to keep it warm, no other products consumed any resources. 15

    • l. Evaluation The goals that our group set are obtaining enough sponsorship, selling all the products and obtain at least RM 1200 for World Vision Malaysia. At the end of the charity drive event, we are successful to obtain RM750 cash as sponsorship, sold all the herbal eggs, Chinese New Year Biscuits and Jellies, we also sold more than half of the accessories that we obtain from the supplier. We obtained in total RM 1601.75 for World Vision Malaysia. During the whole charity drive project, the most difficult part is to find sponsorship. It is very hard to find suppliers who are willing to sponsor goods to us or supply to us in cheaper price. Therefore, we have make many changes in deciding what products to sell. At last, we gather RM 750 cash sponsorship and Bubble City willing to supply us some accessories or gift item like mugs, pillow and so on in cost prices. Next, we also decide to sell products that can prepared by ourselves such as herbal eggs, jellies and CNY biscuits. However, after the charity drive events, we found that we made some wrong decisions. First, is choosing wrong products to sell. For example, each herbal egg can only make RM 0.90 profit. It is very small value. Same goes to jellies because one jelly make RM 1.40 profit. While the accessories or gift items that we picked from the supplier not easy to sold out as they are common or cannot attract customer. Moreover, the second mistake that we made is lack of confidence and marketing or communicate skills. We are less confidence and lack of skills to promote our products. Other groups' members might talked a lot to promote their product to the customer but our group is not. On the other hand, we took some action to remedy the mistakes. We start selling the herbal eggs and jellies 2 weeks before the charity drive event to gather more profits. Next, we also sell CNY biscuits (crabstick) at the same time because that time was around Chinese New Year. Furthermore, except selling at Taylor's University Lakeside Campus, we also sell the products to our families, relatives and friends. Besides, we also adjusted the accessories price in order to attract more customer to buy them. In addition, we make an agreement with the supplier about return the left out product to her and make payment after the charity drive event. This action make us to avoid making loss by unable to sell the products. We also carry our products and donation box around the campus to ask for sales or donate. Lastly, if we can repeat the charity drive event one more time, we will considerate and decide our products more carefully. We will analysis the target market more details. Moreover, we will plan some alternatives as back up. For example, when we found the product does not have high demand in the market, we will have other solution or products to replace it. 17
