Qoo10, in partnership with the Society For The Prevention of Cruelty To Animals (SPCA) Singapore, has raised S$14,906.77 to support its daily animal welfare operations including its animal shelter and animal rescue services.
As part of the fundraising activity, Qoo10 users could choose to donate loyalty points earned on the site or buy certain items which pledged parts of proceeds to the charity drive. A total of 5,704 users and 380 merchants participated in the activity.
The cheque was presented by General Manager for Qoo10 Singapore, Mr Yeo Se Jin, to SPCA’s Executive Director Corrine Fong on 11 February 2015.
“E-commerce is a great enabler for businesses but it can also be used for good, charitable causes. SPCA has a long history of being an advocate for animal welfare and we wanted to provide a channel for our users to make donations to the charity,” said Mr Cho Hyun Wook, Country Manager for Qoo10 Singapore.
“We thank Qoo10 Singapore and its members for this generous donation. Indeed the animal and shelter operations take a massive chunk of money to run, and Qoo10’s donation come at an opportune time. We hope to continue this collaboration with Qoo10 Singapore for a long time. ” said Ms Fong.
