fundraising for the charity donation. The total amount of the money that we

The organization that we have chosen to donate all the funds collected from the
charity drive is the Tzu Chi. We chooseto support this organization because it
receives charity donation to help those family with financial problems,
orphanages and old folks homes that need food supplies, medical or financial
supports. Our target amount for the donation through the sales units, sponsors
and also donation collection is about RM1500.
Our targeted customers for this project are students, couples and working adults.
As the valentine day is at the last day of our charity drive, we plan to sell the
couple rings, shirts and dolls in order to promote our products with a better
pricing and also sell it easier to a wide range of people as the valentine’s gift.
In the charity drive, the products that we sell are more to collect extra funds for
the donation and thus, the pricing of the products are fixed to the suitability of
the spending of people to possess the products which we sell.

couple T-shirts, rings and dolls.

of customers by double or triple of the cost price depending the quality the of
dolls with unique paper chosen for packaging.
The strategies that we use to sell our products faster are giving a compatible
price through selling the products in pairs and we ensure the quality of the
products is suitable to the price given to customers.
The main marketing message that we bring to the public is “Help the
The 2 main tools for us promoting the products are through the telephone calls
and face to face conversations. As we find the face to face conversations help to
sell the products better and it gives instant feedback towards the quality and the
pricing of the products sold. In addition, the tools are chosen to help in
supporting the “Go Green” activity.
Facebook Page: @Charity Donation
We have approached to several sponsorships from our family members,
relatives and factory. Thus, we got a sponsorship from one of our member’s
family. The family is running individual business and we have the products
supplied by the family individual business. It is the cause of the last minute
changes in our group members and we have the family individual business to
support us with the products needed. We approach with our product supplier
through the face to face meetings.
The products are collected to be stored at one of our member’s house and they
are delivered to lakeside campus by car in the morning when everyone starts to
setting up the booth location. Through the products selling during the charity,
we bring all the products stocks along in order to ensure that we give the best
service to the customers instantly when they do payment, we give out the
products at time.
We design the donation box in order to bring the awareness of the charity
activity and also to get more people to donate. Moreover, we reach more
customers effectively through the promotion and the unique packaging of our
products in order to show the quality of our products with the compatible
pricing given is most suitable for the customers spending.
We do products selling only in near location because we need to avoid the time
taking for the products shipping and other extra service charges needed in order
to make sure our products can be safely reach out to the customers.
Our chosen products are made in an environmentally conscious manner in order
to eliminate the hazardous effects to the environment. The product packaging is
not environmentally friendly but it can be reused as recycle. We manage the
product’s wastes by sending them to the recycle bin and face to face
conversation selling method is used to reduce the consumption of resources like
electricity, paper, water and more when running the event.

In the end of the project, we manage to accomplish the task by reaching the
target which we have planned at first before the day starting of the charity event.
What we have done wrong is we do not have much time on the analysis of
knowing which products are the most suitable and most welcomed by the
people because the couple T-shirt which we were selling in the charity event at
the lakeside campus do not really meet the suitability as they cannot try the Tshirt at the public according to their size. Thus, it did not show the most
suitability for the people at lakeside campus although it is still managed to sell
out to some of the people.
On the other hand, the doll is the product that we have done the right choice to
sell in the charity event because of the valentine day is around the week of the
charity drive and thus, this product shows the best welcomed for most people.
In addition, the unique paper packaging which we have chosen also helps to
enhance the selling of product as well as the compatible pricing offer to the
Concluded, even this project is difficult for us to achieve the goal, but we still
learned a lot and have so much fun from this project.
