CI A/Prof Ho Ching Lin Challenge Up for a Cause
by SNEC HEALTH RESEARCH ENDOWMENT FUND
Eye Run Champion CI A/Prof Ho Ching Lin: So excited to share about The Eye Run/Cycle 2021 - the first virtual fundraiser by SNEC and SERI! This newest challenge is for the vital purpose of saving sight, and lending a helping hand to eye research and education for blindness prevention! I've signed up for this event to play a small part in this important cause, and it's kicking off soon, from 1 October to 30 November. I'm Ho Ching Lin, and I am motivated to take on this challenge - I'm a Senior Consultant ophthalmologist, as well as a clinician researcher and educator. I specialise in glaucoma, the leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide and one of the top eye diseases linked to ageing. In Singapore alone, glaucoma is behind 40% of blindness cases! I treat both adults and children with this disease, so I am committed to beating this 'silent thief of sight'! Also, as Director of Philanthropy and Development for the Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences Academic Clinical Programme (Eye ACP), I'm pumped and ready to lead by example in supporting VisionSave, the beneficiary of this challenge. While I usually spend more time on the mat as a yogi, I've pledged to cover 50km on foot in The Eye Run/Cycle to create awareness for glaucoma and other blinding diseases. I hope to raise $25,000 towards research and education that will preserve the eyesight of many people. Help me reach my donation goal and join the fight against blindness today!
The Nature Intelligence System: An innovative technology solution to fight illegal wildlife trade
by Conservation International Singapore Conservation Trust
The illegal wildlife trade has many negative consequences for human well-being and biodiversity. As the 4th most lucrative unlawful trade worldwide after weapons, drugs, and human beings, it continues to drive biodiversity loss. Habitat destruction can make it more likely for animal viruses to come into contact with people. Enforcement officers face an increasingly difficult challenge in effectively and swiftly detecting suspicious shipments while balancing the need for efficient customs processing. This project will raise funds to support Conservation International Singapore Conservation Trust's development and implementation of a cutting-edge technology solution to combat the illegal wildlife trade for stakeholders in Singapore. The project aims to enhance regulation enforcement and mitigate current critical challenges by providing digital vision identification to detect illegal wildlife hidden within legal shipments. Singapore needs to secure its borders against the illegal wildlife trade and help reduce the risk associated with the unlawful transport of endangered species. This project supports Singapore's goal of being a global hub in the sustainability ecosystem, ensuring a vibrant and liveable home for future generations.

Hope in the Dark: Funding the Fight Against Sexual Violence
We all know someone who has experienced sexual violence-or else we are that someone. Every week, new incidents of sexual assault, workplace harassment or voyeurism are reported. It's sad, disturbing, frustrating. This year, AWARE is redoubling our efforts to tackle sexual violence. We address the issue on many fronts - both attending to assault's aftermath, and proactively nipping it in the bud - because that's what it will take to effectively end it. We know this from a decade of running Singapore's only dedicated Sexual Assault Care Centre (SACC). Help us to: - Ensure that SACC meets rising demand for its services. We receive some institutional funding, but it's not enough for us to keep up with the many survivors coming forward to receive trauma-informed support - Empower members of the public to sensitively educate their children and support each other. We aim to expand our Birds & Bees parents' sex education programme and Sexual Assault First Responder Training - Conduct important research into under-examined areas like tech-facilitated abuse Let's focus on real change, and get closer to ending violence for good. All donations will be matched 1:1 by the Tote Board and government. The above impact statements are for illustrative purposes only. All donations received will be used to support AWARE's programmes and services under the HITD fund.

by JL KAH for LOVE, NILS LTD.
A cancer diagnosis is shocking, often paralyzing, and more so traumatic for the child & the whole family. Suddenly, their world seems upside down.

They also provide support through integrative therapies, home and school visits, educational talks, identifying financial resources, facilitating communication with healthcare providers, and more. They help patients understand their diagnosis & any other concerns that may arise.

1823 Trees: Rooting for a Greener Singapore
by Garden City Fund
In conjunction with the countdown to Raffles Institution's Bicentennial celebrations in 2023, RI is committed to planting 1,823 trees (representing the year of their founding) as part of the National Parks Board's OneMillionTrees movement. Minister for Sustainability & Environment Grace Fu kickstarted the tree planting campaign on 20 Aug 2021 by planting a Gelam tree. The Gelam tree is significant to Raffles' founding of Singapore as it was observed to be growing at the Orang Laut village by the sea. Since 2011, RI has been working to make the school more sustainable through a four-pronged approach: a green campus, instilling a green culture among students, and integrating sustainability in the school curriculum and community. This tree planting campaign represents RI's efforts to do better for sustainability and our environment. RI hopes to start planting these trees in 2022, subject to prevailing Covid-19 measures. All donations will go towards the planting of trees. Every $300 contributed will help RI plant one more tree towards this cause. RI is excited to do their part in greening Singapore and RI hopes that you can help them meet the target! Note: All donations with a unique FIN/NRIC are tax-deductible. Upon donating to this campaign, you are consenting for GCF to share your donation details with RI upon request. If you prefer to donate anonymously, please email [email protected] with your donation details.
Five for Fifty! Let's support SPD!
by Tan Yuh Woei for SPD (formerly Society for the Physically Disabled)
Walking comes naturally to many of us, and is an ability often taken for granted. This is not the case for those who face physical disability challenges. They often need long-term therapy to get back on their feet and regain some independence. As volunteers on SPD's Technology Advisory Panel, we have heard many stories of stroke and road accident survivors returning to work with the help of our therapists and much perseverance. There are also our elderly beneficiaries who could go home every day to be with their loved ones instead of living in nursing homes because of our day care and rehab programmes. Every story moves and motivates us to do more. So today, the five of us have embarked on this campaign to raise funds to enable more persons with disabilities, especially those from middle to low-income families, to access to affordable programmes and services. Please support this “5-for-50” campaign where we target to raise $50,000 for SPD's rehabilitation programmes. The funds raised will go towards providing more than 1,000 therapy sessions for clients from low-income households. Every $200 that you donate through this campaign, we will walk 1km. We pledge to cover 100km collectively regardless of the amount raised. The distance is daunting for us (who hardly exercise!) but with your support, we are determined to complete it. Motivate us with your contribution and help us reach our target. Click “Donate Today”. Thank you.
SCHMI 69th Anniversary - Night of Culture & Art
by Singapore Chung Hwa Medical Institution
This year marks the 69th year of the establishment of Singapore Chung Hwa Medical Institution (SCHMI). Over the years, SCHMI has undergone countless changes and reforms, but we have never given up on our mission of providing subsidized TCM treatment and medicines to help the sick. Today, our headquarters resides in Toa Payoh and our four branches are in Joo Chiat, Woodlands, Bukit Panjang, and Yishun. On average, a total of 1,000 patients visits SCHMI every day, many of whom receive fully or partially subsidized treatment from us. However, due to the epidemic, the donations we received have dropped by 60% in the past two years. This has led to insufficient funds and difficultly in our operation. On October 24th, we will be broadcasting the "SCHMI 69th Anniversary - Night of Culture and Art" live on Facebook to raise medical funds for the patients of SCHMI. Please join us in spreading the love by donating generously to help the vast number of our poor patients.
