It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year: Charity Christmas Bazaars 2018

It’s never too early to start Christmas shopping, and kicking off the festive season in Malaysia is usually an array of charity bazaars by expat and charity associations in Malaysia. Most of these associations have been around for some time and believe that Christmas is not just the time for receiving, but giving back to the community too. Admittedly, shopping with a cause has a warm fuzzy feeling, not only because you get to buy a gift for a loved one, but also contribute towards helping other people in the community who are in need. Here are some not-to-be-missed bazaars for you to kickstart that Christmas spirit!

AAM 32nd Annual Christmas Charity Bazaar

The vendors consist of a rich tapestry of multicultural entrepreneurs who bring their creativity and wares from all across the world.

All net proceeds, including those received from baked goods, are donated to local charities. The true essence of the Christmas Bazaar reflects the AAM’s motto, “Helping you have fun while give back” by the community of Americans and non-Americans living in and around Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
