5. Donate English books at The Gardens Mall, till 25 Dec 2018
If you have unwanted English books and you'll be stopping by The Gardens Mall, how about donating them to Teach for Malaysia, an independent, not-for-profit organisation that provides education to marginalised communities? The booth is located at the North Palm area on the ground floor and donors will get to sign a pledge card valued between RM50 and RM500 that will go towards Teach for Malaysia.
