The initiative saw the Friends for Cancer Patients bring their patients to the mall wherein, the children gathered for Iftar at the mall and were taken to the participating outlets and were helped to pick brand new clothes, shoes, accessories and various items of their choice to celebrate Eid. Uber provided free transport to and from the retail outlet.
Dubai Outlet Mall has a long running commitment to giving back to the society and extends its support to local communities in a variety of ways, the aim being to bring opportunities and positive experiences to good causes.

An additional element of the campaign saw Dubai Outlet Mall, in association with some of its Food and Beverage outlets, providing local labour camp workers with Iftar food boxes. Iftar packages were also handed out to taxi drivers present at the mall during the time of sunset. The Mall wanted to show its appreciation of their hard work, recognising that many of them are very far away from their homes and loved ones which can be very tough during the Ramadan and Eid periods.
Shoppers have been able to benefit from a wide range of special bargains upto 90% from their favourite premium brands over the Ramadan and Eid period. A Shop & Win Campaign has also run, with prizes worth up to 250,000 AED. In addition, special activities including face painting, Ramadan paper lantern making, henna adornments and a special Book.
