PETALING JAYA: A special number plate series, A1M or Artist 1Malaysia has been introduced to help raise funds for the welfare of artistes.

Datuk DJ Dave, who is the president of Yayasan Artis 1Malaysia (YA1M), said the funds collected would be channelled to actors, sin­gers and to musicians who were ill.

The monies would also go to fa­­mi­ly members of deceased performers or to those who were above 60 years old, said the entrepreneur and singer.

“The YA1M has received approval from the Road Transport Department to have an open tender for this special number plate series to help artistes who are in need,” he said at a press conference yesterday.

The special number plate series will be from A1M 1 to A1M 1000 and the public can start bidding from now until Oct 2 via

Dave added that the A1M could also be read as “Aim” or target.

He said that lucky bidders could also attend a dinner with popular artistes at an event organised by YA1M.
