SUBANG JAYA: Mydin Mohamed Holdings Bhd is calling on Malaysians to celebrate this National Day with its Raikan MalaysiaKu (Celebrate My Malaysia) campaign.
The campaign, which was launched at Mydin USJ here yesterday, is not only about marking 61 years of independence, but also appreciating the commitment shown by Malaysians for the country.
Its managing director Datuk Ameer Ali Mydin said the campaign was one of the ways the company gave back to the country.
“We call on Malaysians to do a Merdeka pledge with Mydin in building a more progressive Malaysia.
“I believe that with the spirit of love for the country, we can achieve the impossible. Let’s make the country a better one,” he said.
Ameer Ali said Mydin had always felt a strong kinship with the country, having been born in 1957, the same year Malaya gained independence from the British
Among the programmes under the campaign include Shop, Collect, and Redeem 2018; Shop, Fly, and Drive 2018; Raikan MalaysiaKu jacket wrap in The Star and Sinar Harian; and the #MYpledge initiative.

There will also be #MYpledge boards at Menara Star as well as Sinar Harian and Suria FM offices.
Subang Jaya assemblyman Michelle Ng Mei Sze, who launched the Raikan MalaysiaKu campaign, said #MYpledge was a good initiative by Mydin.
“My personal #MYpledge is to do my best for the people, especially my constituents,” she said.
