Mix Cares

Our charity and community involvement does not mean just throwing some money towards a charity

 

It’s about being part of the community and making every project we involved with a success.

We put in our time, heart and soul into every campaign or project we involved with by raising awareness about the project, help raise funds for NPO`s and NGO`s and also a volunteer ourselves to give a helping hand….
