$401,195 raised due to the support of the motorists community during a fundraising campaign with Mediacorp’s Radio Gives Back
As part of celebrations for its 125th anniversary in Singapore, Shell joined hands with Mediacorp’s Radio Gives Back to provide families in need with financial assistance, successfully exceeding its target donation sum of $300,000. The total amount of $401,495 was raised with the support of motorists in Singapore as Shell donated $1.25 for every purchase of Shell fuels from 4th to 17th April 2016, along with additional donations of $5.00 for every 125 Shell Escape Points contributed by customers in support of this cause.
In collaboration with Mediacorp’s Radio Gives Back, the total amount in donations will be used to provide financial support for families in need to help with their children’s education, utility and medical bills and daily necessities. This initiative is part of Shell’s long-standing commitment to serving the local community.
To celebrate the success of the initiative, Shell formally presented a cheque of $401,495 to Mediacorp’s Radio Gives Back today at Caldecott Hill, home of Mediacorp Studios. Families receiving financial aid from this initiative were also present at the event, and were brought on a tour around the studios.

“We would like to thank Shell and their customers for being part of Radio Gives Back Initiative.

These meaningful contributions and continued support from Shell will definitely benefit the families in need.”Ms Debra Soon, Chairperson of Mediacorp’s Radio 80 Committee
Beyond the donations, Shell has also pledged 125 hours of volunteerism to aid the underprivileged in Singapore. Some of these hours will be used to carry out food drives for these families.
Shell employees will continue to visit the homes of these families to deliver its customers’ personal words of encouragement on cards that were distributed with every fuel purchase during the donation period.
