About The Campaign
This Merdeka and Malaysia Day, Wall’s Ice Cream embarked on a mission to make a resounding impact with their Take Home Ice Cream Campaign. Centred around themes of unity, sharing, and togetherness, their creative and messaging radiated the spirit of Merdeka. To amplify this message, Wall collaborated with a local artist, Michael Chuah, who lent his creative prowess to design their Gift with Purchase (GWP) merchandise.
In their endeavour to bring this campaign to life and reach a broader audience, Wall’s’ media agency, Mindshare, teamed up with their trusted ad tech partner, FreakOut, to effectively convey the message of unity and celebration during these special occasions.
FreakOut saw this as an opportunity to go one step further to give back to the community together with Wall’s. So, in a heartwarming display of patriotism and camaraderie, FreakOut and Wall’s set out to make this year’s Merdeka and Hari Malaysia celebrations truly special for the children at Yayasan Sunbeams Home by orchestrating a fun-filled day of games, ice creams, and prizes! FreakOut and Wall’s also collectively donated provisions to support the home. The focus of this initiative was simple yet profound: spreading cheer, having fun, and creating unforgettable memories.

The visit took place on the 7th of September, 2023 and began with an ice-breaker session with the children, fostering a warm and welcoming atmosphere. As the day unfolded, the children delighted in the Wall’s Ice Cream, all while patriotic songs played in the background, enhancing the festive spirit. The evening continued with more fun interactions with the kids, as the representatives from FreakOut took the lead in organising and facilitating entertaining games for the children. The visit concluded with the handing out of prizes, eliciting a touching “thank you” chant from the kids.
Beyond the joy it brought to the team from Wall’s, FreakOut, and the children, the event also stirred the spirit of unity and togetherness that Malaysia Day and Merdeka inspire. It served as a poignant reminder that acts of kindness have the power to foster bonds and spread happiness within the community.
Wall’s and FreakOut remain committed to their mission of adding value and look forward to continuing their efforts to make a positive impact on their communities.
At Wall’s, we are dedicated to making moments of happiness accessible to everyone.

We look forward to such meaningful collaborations in the future and extend our gratitude to FreakOut and Yayasan Sunbeams for making this event a success.Randy Ng, Wall’s Take Home Ice Cream Manager

About Yayasan Sunbeams Home
Yayasan Sunbeams Home is a non-governmental, self-supporting foundation which cares and nurtures for the displaced, abused and neglected children of single parent. It was founded in 1995 by Pastor Alvin Tan and his late wife Pastor Lucy, both teachers by profession. Their calling began when they decided to bring home a young child and care for him, because his parents were unable to do so. From this humble and selfless gesture, their vision emerged for a Home in which they would devote their lives to the welfare of children, some as young as babies only a few months old.
