These are tough times that we live in. People all over the world are struggling and now more than ever, we see the importance of us working collectively.
It could be as simple as staying at home and staying positive – for those that have to get up everyday and take care of our society– our front liners, our medical team, the people at the grocery store, our delivery team, and many more.
In this moment, we are so grateful for this platform that allows us to share a list of support funds that can further assist the key groups in this time of need. These are funds that help support our frontliners (equipment, sustenance, etc) and also vulnerable groups like the elderly, refugees, migrant workers that find themselves out of work and without means of supporting their family. It might seem little, but we are the helping hand that they need to get through this difficult time.
As always, we urge you to do your part and stay at home – it might be the simplest of things, but by doing so, you WILL be protecting your life, your loved ones, and many others.
There is beauty in such darkness and from what I see is the light of humanity that shines through to support one another.
Stay safe, darlings, and stay at home.

Vivy Yusof, husband Fadza Anuar and FashionValet team are organizing this fundraiser on behalf of IMARET (IMAM Response & Relief Team).
As we self-isolate with the rest of the world, it didn’t feel right that we just do that when our healthcare system needs our support. More cases are rising and this is our chance to help get our hospitals as ready as possible to combat COVID19 and save lives. We hope you will help us with this cause and donate any amount to help others around us. We are stronger together!
