We invite you to be a part of ROCKIN’ FOR THE ENVIRONMENT event. In collaboration with an initiative kickstarted by local music band, BENCHMARX, marketing communication company GO INTERNATIONAL GROUP is organising a two-day arts, music and educational festival to commemorate Earth Week.

Titled ‘ROCKIN’ FOR THE ENVIRONMENT’, musicians as well as NGOs and eco-friendly commercial organisations will each play a part in raising funds for the ORANGUTAN APPEAL UK to help support and raise awareness of the plight of the endangered Orang Utan species.

o In 2008, TIGER ROCK raised RM11,000+ for MyCat.
o In 2009, ORANG UTAN ROCK aims to raise even more for the Orangutan Appeal UK!
