The 30-Hour Famine is a global movement against hunger and poverty. Participants go without food for 30 hours and get a glimpse of the dire conditions that children and families in need endure everyday.
They also raise funds, transforming their hunger into hope for children and families in need. The Famine aims to inspire and empower ordinary people to care for those in need, both locally and globally.

The Edge and Bursa Malaysia are once again co-organisers for this unique event which benefits the needy. Donations collected from participating local and foreign companies in Malaysia will be channelled towards beneficiaries involved in various causes. Last year, some 140 teams took time out to run and helped raise over RM1.5 to RM1.7 million for 20 charitable organisations.
This year’s Race will also have 20 beneficiaries, which will be announced in the coming weeks. Charitable organisations interested in being one of the selected beneficiaries may apply by downloading this form and submitting it back to us by May 22nd.
So Corporate Malaysia, forget about the rat race we are in, just for one day, and join in a rat race of a different kind! Give some time to charity after office hours this Aug 11. Besides being for a good cause, this event also gives executives a good excuse to leave the office early!The Kuala Lumpur Rat Race® is supported by Yayasan Bursa Malaysia, the foundation arm of Bursa Malaysia. The Federal Territory Amateur Athletics Association (FTAAA) provides technical support.

Boots and training shoes are not the first things that spring to mind when you think about the causes of rainforest destruction and climate change. 'Slaughtering the Amazon' shows the connections between beef and leather production in the Amazon and illegal deforestation, financed by some of our best known global footwear brands.
It’s that time of the year again and Jacob's Walk of Life is back! The 2009 edition of this annual event is set to be bigger and better. The campaign will culminate in a public walk at Taman Metropolitan, Kepong on June 21 2009.
Don't miss out on the fun. Book your place now and sample a spread of the goodness of Jacob's wholesome biscuits. We're excited and we can't wait. See you there, Malaysia!
