Syed Saddiq did it! He actually went bald!
The Muar MP fulfilled his vow in the #BotakChallenge, after his “1 Keluarga 1 Laptop” donation campaign raised way past his set contribution target of RM200,000.
More than RM383,000 was raised in five days in the campaign, with the goal that every family in his constituency of Muar, Johor would have a laptop for the use of their children.
His mother, Sharifah Mahani Syed Abdul Aziz, was given the honour to shave his head, before the shaving was taken over by a professional barber to complete his haircut until he was bald, and the whole process was aired live on Astro AWANI!
Syed Saddiq even shared the experience of having his hair cut by his mother when he was 6-years-old.
The campaign targeted 500 families earning below RM1,500 who have children pursuing their education at institutions of higher learning.
“We give high-quality laptops with i3 or i5 processors, much better than my own computer. It's so that the students can use it for a long time. They can then pass down the laptops to their younger siblings or parents who run small businesses,” he said.
A total of 120 families in Muar have received the laptops so far, and Syed Saddiq’s team will start handing out the rest of them today (December 31st).
