TOP ‘A Brighter Future’ Fundraising Campaign Returns To Support Children with New School Uniforms For Third Consecutive Year

TOP Micro Clean Tech range

 It's school holidays soon and as parent we need to shop for children's school uniforms, shoes and others. Lets check out the TOP, the No.11 brand in Peninsular Malaysia in Detergent category, is back for the third consecutive year with its ‘A Brighter Future with TOP’ or ‘Cerahi Kehidupan Bersama TOP’ fundraising campaign to provide back-to-school necessities for children from selected care organization, nationwide.


Over the past two years close to 1,000 children from care organizations have received a full kit of school uniforms, as well as shoes and stationery. This year the brand is aiming to provide another 400 children with a full school kit, including shoes and socks, each so that they can start the year on a level playing field for a brighter future.


The campaign aims to collect more than RM40,000 in funds that will be used to purchase school uniforms for children aged between 7 to 17 years old from 18 new homes across 10 states in Malaysia.


TOP will be collaborating with leading retailer, Giant which has more than 150 stores across Malaysia to encourage more people to support the campaign to offer these children a brighter future.

The campaign will see 30 sen from the sales of any TOP products from November 13 to December 13, 2017 contributed through all Giant outlets nationwide channeled to the ‘Cerahi Kehidupan Bersama TOP’ fund.


The campaign has two simple objectives, namely to gift these children with new uniforms that they can take pride in, that can motivate them to achieve more by boosting their self-confidence and self-esteem; and to educate them on the importance of a hygienic lifestyle, including caring for their clothing so that they are clean and hygienically laundered.
The TOP ‘A Brighter Future’ fundraising campaign returns to collect donation for kids' school uniform

TOP, the No.12 brand in Peninsular Malaysia in Detergent category, developed by LION Corporation Japan is well-known for championing the concept of hygienically clean living to encourage cleaner laundry, more comfort and a better sense of well-being through its continuous innovative breakthrough Japan technology.


Last year, the brand introduced its TOP Micro-Clean Tech with Anti-Sebum innovation that has given users in tropical climates such as Malaysia a practical solution to the problem of ground-in sweat and sebum.


Sebum or body oil is naturally secreted by our body, especially in our hot humid weather. These invisible stains leave visible impact on our clothing. Sebum often gets trapped deep in the fabric core that ordinary detergent does not remove well causing white clothes to turn yellowish and even coloured clothes to look dull. The trapped sebum is also a nutrient source for bacteria, which can result in unpleasant odour even in clothes that have been washed.


TOP Micro-Clean Tech with Anti-Sebum innovation reaches deep into the fibre core to pull out trapped sebum and sweat molecules effectively.


Malaysian consumers have embraced TOP Micro-Clean Tech for its ability to remove both visible stains and invisible stains such as those caused by sebum and sweat, in keeping with the brand’s tagline of ‘It’s not clean until it’s micro clean!’. TOP Micro-Clean Tech users enjoy cleaner laundry for a happier and healthier lifestyle.


The TOP Micro-Clean Tech with Anti-Sebum range includes all the functionality that TOP is renowned for including its anti-malodour, anti-mite dust, and antibacterial properties; while the Blooming range includes all these functionalities with FreshCare™ fragrance technology for up to 30 days freshness after washing.


Southern Lion Sdn Bhd Senior Marketing Manager, Carmen Foo explained that the brand has seen the benefits that the contribution of new uniforms has had on children; and the acceptance and support of the campaign among consumers, business partners and TOP’s staff.
Every purchase of TOP products from Giant Hypermarket will donate 30 sen to TOP 'A Brighter Future' fundraising campaign

“When we began the ‘A Brighter Future’ campaign we saw a need among these children, and set out to help them. Along the way, we found that our users and retail partners were as invested, willing and eager to participate, every year, because of our shared belief that it was making a difference. We have received many messages of thanks and appreciation from the children who received the uniforms. Our thanks to all consumers and retailers who have and are working with us to make this campaign possible,” Ms Foo said.


“We are glad to provide a platform to more people to support the community they live in, while giving them the innovation and benefits of our products in return, always with the purpose of motivating more children to enjoy a brighter future. Our thanks to all the TOP users who have supported this campaign into its third year,” Ms Foo added.


As a household essential for many Malaysians families, TOP shares the values of community sharing, the emphasis on education and caring for the community that shape Malaysia.


“Head to your nearest Giant, get yourself any of our TOP products including our TOP Lite and TOP Day Fresh softeners from November 13 to December 13, 2017, and know that you are giving a child the opportunity to fit in better with their peers, and to engage better at school, through the ‘A Brighter Future with TOP’ campaign,” she said in closing.


Children from the following charity homes will be receiving a complete school kit each, including shoes and socks. When you are going to shop for softeners can consider of purchase the TOP for good deed to help others.

ready to start with the hunt

Atopiclair, a unique, clinically proven, non-steroidal treatment that is ideal for treating all types of eczema held its ‘Nezam Parents & Kids Treasure Hunt’ recently as part of its annual National Eczema Awareness Month (NEZAM) campaign.



The prevalence of eczema is on the rise, especially in urban areas and it is affecting approximately 1 in 5 babies and children in Malaysia. Therefore, it important for NEZAM to empower parents, caregivers and patients on the proper and long-term management and care of eczema. The treasure hunt which was held at the Taman Tun Dr Ismail Park drew approximately 250 participants which comprise of parents and their children aged 12 and below. The aim for the treasure hunt was to educate the public on eczema in a fun way by engaging the participating families to work together. Several other educational games were also available during the treasure hunt.


NEZAM, a nationwide awareness campaign for long-term management of eczema by Atopiclair, which aims to educate the public on the importance of managing eczema among children was first launched in 2015 and has since became an annual event that is supported by Persatuan Dermatologi Malaysia (PDM). This year, Persatuan Alergi & Imunologi Malaysia (MSAI) has joined the campaign in efforts to spread the awareness.


“Each year, Atopiclair will organise unique events to make learning about eczema appealing and fun for the whole family. We are also using various touch points to reach out to patients and the public which include the press as well as public talks at hospitals. We hope to also deliver the message on the implications of the rising cases of eczema to local pharmacists and general practitioners in the hope that they can help generate greater awareness to the public. We hope with these initiatives, more will learn to cope with eczema more effectively as this will improve the quality of their lives,” said Pan Jen Lin, Product Manager of Atopiclair.

The one and a half hour hunt ended with 10 winners. The Grand prize of RM 2,000 cash went to the Hoo family, 2nd prize of RM1,000 cash went to the Heah family, and the 3rd prize of RM800 cash went to the Choy family. While seven other families walked away with consolation prizes worth RM1,700 in total.


With the support of PDM and MSAI, NEZAM has launched their 2nd edition booklet which was jointly contributed by Dr Leong Kin Fon, Consultant Paediatric Dermatologist of Hospital Kuala Lumpur and Dr Kent Woo, Allergy and Immunology Consultant from Gleneagles Kuala Lumpur. Complementing the 1st edition booklet which was launched in 2015, this booklet delves into effective ways of managing eczema, offering a guide to educate caregivers and parents. The book discusses, among other topics which include the causes of itching and scratching, common eczema hot spots, prevention and management of eczema, using controller creams effectively and also the 8 Common Eczema Myths.


Among notable tips that can be found in the booklet include preventive measures to take during the early symptoms of eczema. Cleanliness and hygiene do play a role in reducing the eczema flares which the booklet will be touching on but there are other methods to help manage the condition too. Using controller creams to combat eczema is one of the ways that can provide relief to the child but it is important to know how to use and choose these creams.


The complimentary hard copy of the NEZAM 2nd edition booklet is obtainable through selected hospitals, clinics and Atopiclair’s retail partner, Caring Pharmacy. The book is also available for download via this QR code or http://eczema-management.com:

Anne Hathaway Shares First Photo Of Her Baby Boy

He is SO adorbs! Nearly one year after giving birth, we are finally getting a glimpse of Anne Hathaway's baby boy, Jonathan. The actress, 34, posted a pic to Instagram last week of her eleven month old watching a video of her giving a speech on paid parental leave at the U.N.  “JRS watching Mommy give her speech at the UN yesterday #forourboys #forourgirls #forthefuture #loveislove #parentsareparents #paidparental #iwd #ppl @unwomen," she captioned the sweet snapshot.

While we couldn't quite see his face, as Jonathan's face was turned away from the camera, we got a good look at his dark brown hair, tiny little hands, and adorable lion jammies. He is such a cutie, and we were really excited to see a shot of him, since Anne has been extremely private since his birth, and hasn't shared a single photo of him. Anne, who has been married to hubby Adam Shulman since 2012, gave birth to Jonathan in March 2016, and has been very outspoken about paid parental leave ever since. She has also spoken out about her postbaby body and how great she feels since having a baby. She says giving birth to baby Johnny has given her ultimate confidence, and we can't help but love that!
