A community fundraising dinner aptly called “A Night of Giving” organized by The Giving Bank with a slogan theme of “ME + WE” equaling to Unity was held last Saturday at Berjaya Times Square Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.
At The Giving Bank, the concept of ME + WE talks about “ME” not doing things alone, but it is “WE” who come together with the same objectives in mind to turn the impossible, possible. They believe strongly that to succeed, we all need to work as a team and as a formation, not individually.
Togetherness makes us stronger.
Togetherness makes us united.
Togetherness makes us grow.
