6. Shop at The Gardens Mall for a cause, 1 - 24 June

Raya is a time of giving and remembering the less fortunate. The Gardens Mall is doing their part by linking up with Teach for Malaysia. Shoppers who spend RM900 (RM800 for The Gardens Club members or Standard Chartered credit cardholders) and above in a single receipt* at any The Gardens Mall's specialty stores will receive a pot of orchids. And for each of this redemption, The Gardens Mall will donate RM5 to Teach For Malaysia.
