It all began with a vision of making small changes in the community, by providing volunteering opportunities and an empowerment platform, to make big differences. Hence, a group of young professionals founded Small Changes which is currently is run by volunteers based locally and internationally.
Initially, Small Changes focused on fighting education inequality through youth empowerment programs. Over the years, Small Changes has grown by reaching out to the community through fundraising, donation drives, and projects involving underprivileged students and Orang Asli (indigenous people).
Fundraiser serves as a platform for Small Changes to raise funds from the public to support Small Changes’ projects and beneficiaries as well as creating awareness on the chosen annual cause.
This year, the team is putting forward initiatives namely the annual fundraiser event, online campaigns and a brand new volunteer-based fundraising project, Fund Ranger to fundraise from the public.

ANNUAL FUNDRAISER EVENT
Annual Fundraiser is the peak to the fundraising campaign. This one-day event would be held at a public venue and includes various activities such as musical performances, flash mobs, drawing for charity, bazaars and many more!
ANNUAL FUNDRAISER HISTORY
The fundraiser was held at RUANG in Subang Jaya to continue the Ramadan campaign; the theme focus in 2014 were refugees. They fostered awareness in the public using the ‘Whiteboard Counter’ method and boosted collections to approximately RM67,000. At the end of the year, Small Changes started an online campaign to help out the flood victims in the east coast of the Peninsular.
With the growing public attention, the fundraiser event rebranded into Seeds of Deeds Annual Fundraiser which was focused on education inequality. The Annual Fundraiser Event was held at Publika and a total of RM70,000 was collected.
In this year, the organisation leveraged on its online presence to raise public awareness on education inequality prior to its annual event at NU Sentral. Throughout the campaign, the organization successfully raised at least RM100,000 in total.
In this year, the fundraiser event took place at RUANG SS18 where a different approach was taken – a showcase of talents by the multitalented members and partners. Despite not reaching the targeted value, the campaign managed to gain funds up to RM 65,0000.
Last year, it was a double-success for Alvin Netto that Saturday night at Bukit Jalil National Stadium, being the first Malaysian to run backwards non-stop with 11 hours and 23 minutes thus breaking Malaysian Book of Records and surpassed his RM10,000 fundraising target on the SimplyGiving’s fundraiser page. During the 12 hours run, SC committees collectively worked together through time-keeping, crowd management and sales of SC’s merchandises.
