10 Charitable Campaigns in Singapore

There are incredible charitable campaigns that exist in Singapore. Read on to learn the names of those important charitable campaigns:

50 for 50: In this campaign, fifty young people organized fundraisers for lesser-known charities. In addition to fostering youth involvement in philanthropy, it raised 2.25 million dollars. The government then matched this money, resulting in a total of $4.5 million dollars raised.

1 for 1: Spurred by the success of 50 for 50, the campaign organizers began 1 for 1, in which all Singaporeans were encouraged to donate a dollar, which would again be matched by the government.

Fold a Crane for Charity: In this campaign against hunger, Songhe Fragrant Rice challenged Singaporeans to fold paper cranes. For every paper crane folded, the company donated a bowl of rice to charity. The campaign exceeded all expectations, resulting in 147,480 kilograms of rice getting donated in total.

Grains of Kindness: This is another campaign against hunger launched by Songhe Fragrant Rice. This time, however, instead of making paper cranes, people were encouraged to post photographs of random acts of kindness to Facebook. Each photo earned a 10kg donation of rice.

Hair for Hope: In this campaign, launched by the Children’s Cancer Foundation, participants shaved their heads in solidarity with cancer parents who lost their hair to chemotherapy. Shavees solicited donations or sponsorships for the cause, while proving that baldness was nothing to be ashamed of.

Giving Tuesday: In 2013, the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Center designated the last Tuesday in November to be Giving Tuesday. On this day, Singaporeans are encouraged to donate to a number of charitable organizations. The day also includes social media campaigns, volunteer opportunities, corporate donors and sponsorships.

Giving Week: Due to its success, Giving Tuesday was expanded into Giving Week, beginning the last Tuesday in November and stretching into the first week of December. Giving Week came with more campaigns, more charities, and more corporate sponsorships.

For a Golden Home: Singapore has an aging population. Many elderly Singaporeans live alone in small apartments, often in poor conditions. For a Golden Home raises money to improve these apartments, and enlists the help of volunteers to go in and clean everything up.

President’s Challenge: Begun by President S.R. Nathan in 2000, the President’s Challenge is a platform for individuals and corporations to engage with a number of charitable organizations. Beneficiaries of the President’s Challenge, as well as the amount that they receive, are decided by the Office of the President.

Heartstrings Walk: Community Chest, the charitable arm of the National Council of Social Services, is a charitable organization that helps disabled people integrate into society, learn skills, and realize their potential. Their annual Heartstrings Walk takes participants on a walk around the city, in return for donations and sponsorships.

Education and Inspiration from the Little Sisters Fund

2017 is here. Anthony S Casey is proud to support the Little Sisters Fund based out of Nepal. He are continually impressed by the achievements of our Little Sisters. They have already completed so much in the past few months! At the request of our partner schools, we are expanding our primary educator training program to Middle School this year! Plus, Little Sisters is touring soon to visit supporters.

The end of year fundraising campaign was a resounding success. Exceeded our goal by over 25 percent, over 2,000 girls are in school and Little Sisters is able to support them thanks to sponsors like Anthony S Casey.

Here are some highlights from recent successes.

 

Educator Training

Our Little Sisters receive the best education possible we strive to achieve this through the Primary Educator Training (PET) program. One school at a time, Little Sisters Fund continues to partner with schools to improve the Nepali education system for all students.

PET trains primary level teachers to use child-focused teaching methods that encourage analytical and critical thinking. In 2016, we conducted 22 trainings in 8 districts. 360 teachers attended these trainings, indirectly impacting approximately 9,000 students throughout Nepal. In 2017 as we work toward our goal of training teachers in all 90+ LSF primary partner schools. The PET course has been so successful at the primary level that, at the request of our partner schools, we’re putting together a pilot program to extend the course to secondary level teachers.

Meet Tribisha

In Nepal, any disability, and specifically one of this magnitude, can keep a girl out of school and cloistered or hidden away in the home. Tribisha was born with spina bifida and must use crutches and leg braces to walk. She has always been determined to defy the odds that have been stacked against her since birth.

Tribisha joined LSF in 2011. Now 16 years old, she inspires us with her determination and accomplishments. She was awarded the “Disabled Student Genius Award” for her high marks on the School Leaving Certificate exam in December and she will soon be publishing her first short novel, Niruta, which tells the story of the challenges a young girl faces growing up in Nepal.

Little Sisters is incredibly proud of Tribisha’s achievements and we look forward to watching her continue to inspire the girls who follow in her path. Read more of her story on LittleSistersFund.org.
