Keeping the Train Going
by Sing Lit Station Limited
This year, we brought poetry into the sea, the heartlands, more than 50 schools, and the hearts of many. We've grown our SingPoWriMo community to over 7,000 members, and even started SEAPoWriMo to spread poetry to the region. We've run a series of graphic medicine workshops, and launched "Call and Response", a poetry anthology featuring migrants alongside local writers. None of this could've been done without your constant support. Here's some of the things we have lined up for 2019: - Bringing Book A Writer into more institutions including primary schools and ITEs, and the return of Camp Lit school holiday camp in June and December; - Expanding poetry.sg's database to prose.sg, with printers around the city that will generate Sing Lit on demand, for free! - The 6th edition of SingPoWriMo in April; - Launch of the Manuscript Assessment Programme, in conjunction with Manuscript Bootcamp (Poetry); - Brand new masterclasses and workshops; - An art exhibition of poetry on broadsides; - Writing and art workshops as soul therapy for those in need. Every dollar truly counts, so help turn our crazier ideas into reality! Keep on telling our story to your friends and colleagues, so that we can keep telling stories for all of us. Thank you for supporting Sing Lit Station, and helping to keep our little Station running. We wouldn't be where we are today without you.
Grace Upon Grace
by Methodist Welfare Services
The poor and disadvantaged need second chances in life. Here are stories of how your giving made it possible for the positive changes in their lives. Grace To Dream Again Agnes, 18, suffered horrific physical, sexual and psychological abuse by her stepfather since she was a child. Without love and family support, she subsequently got into trouble with the law and was sentenced to a year's probation at MWS Girls' Residence to receive specialised intervention. She attended weekly counselling sessions, and weekly art and expressive therapy sessions. As part of her vocational training, MWS placed the N-levels holder on a coffee barista training course, which included a work placement stint. She now dreams of starting afresh by opening a cafe with her mum, and decorating it with her paintings. Grace To Work Again A massive stroke left Mr Lai, a tower crane operator, with impaired speech and paralysis. When he was admitted to MWS BNH, he felt anguished and helpless that he could only express himself through limited non-verbal gestures, and had to learn simple daily activities from scratch. With intensive nursing care and rehabilitation, he gradually became stronger and learnt to walk again. The 52-year-old has made such a marked recovery that he is able to work again as a packer at a charity for the physically disabled. Today, he uses a motorised wheelchair and public transport to commute between the nursing home and his workplace independently.

by St. John's Home For Elderly Persons
/A BIG THANK YOU to all donors who enabled us to hit our targeted $100K! To complete the project, we still need $5 million more. Do kindly continue to spread the word and support./ We are a team of eight residents, aged 66 to 90, from St. John's Home For Elderly Persons which is located at 69 Wan Tho Ave. We took up the challenge of helping our Home raise $100,000, as part of the funds to build our new Home. Though not savvy in digital media, we shot this video entirely on our own using mobile phone! Please take 3 minutes to check out the video and support our effort to raise funds for our new Home by donating generously. Our Home needs to raise about a total of another $5 Million for our new building project! (St John's Home for Elderly Persons has occupied 69 Wan Tho Avenue since the beginning. The lease on the land expired on 31 Dec 2015. We are very grateful to be able to secure a fresh 30-year lease beginning on 1 January 2016 for 3,300sqm, a part of the 12,000sqm of land we have long occupied. Thanks to the support of many well wishers, we are on our way to building a new Home to care for existing and new residents. We will have the Groundbreaking Ceremony on 1 Sep 2018 and our new Home is slated to be ready by end 2020).
#GivingWeekSG Gift of Joy and Peace This Christmas!
by St. John's Home For Elderly Persons
This being our 60th Christmas, we are especially glad to wish you and your family the Blessings of the Christ Child! Since we opened in December 1958, God has blessed us with indefatigable volunteers, generous donors, dedicated staff and visionary leaders. God has blessed us especially bountifully in 2018. We are able to house within our Home every resident in the four dormitories being demolished for the new building, more volunteers and good results from our physiotherapy and counselling programmes. The heartwarming effort of 8 residents aged between 66 and 91 who mastered smartphones to make a fundraising video (watch: https://www.giving.sg/StJohnsHomeSg/SeniorsOnline2018) attracted the attention of President Halimah Yacob, who graced the Home with a visit on 27th September 2018. Groundbreaking for the new building was on 1st September. We expect it to be completed by Christmas 2020. Thank you for your support over the years. We need your support to continue caring for and bringing smiles to our elderly. May we again ask for your support. Everyone of us in St John's Home for Elderly Persons wishes you and your family Peace, Joy and Happiness!
Help Jamie hit SGD20K in 20 hours for EQUAL-ARK
by Equal-Ark Singapore Ltd
Help Jamie raise SGD20,000 at the HK-128 Run (http://www.hk168.com.hk/Half-168/) The run will take place on the 1st-2nd of December in Hong Kong. Jamie has been training hard to complete 87km with 6000 meters of elevation in a total of just 20 hours to raise money for the kids and elderly at Equal-Ark. These kids have received our unique and innovative programme of horse-based therapy, to restore self-confidence, self-esteem and a positive self-worth, as well as to develop strong Character Skills, such as Courage, Responsibility, Empathy, Resilience, Mindfulness, Persistence, Communication and Wisdom. With a new self-confidence, and strong Character Skills, each child will have a good chance at seamlessly integrating and seeing success in schooling, employment and family life. EQUAL teaches five Habits of Mind: Managing Impulsivity, Persistence, Listening with Empathy and Understanding, Thinking Flexibly and Taking Responsible Risks. These skills give the children grit, resilience, character, and compassion. This will help them in school, employment and family life. For the elderly, we aim to offer them back their sense of dignity focusing on the mental and social-emotional well-being incorporating horseplay, horsemanship and art therapy. Reducing caregiver burden by providing a platform for caregivers to re-establish meaningful relationships with their elderly is important to us.
Help someone this Christmas
by Assisi Hospice
At Assisi Hospice, we provide palliative care for patients and support caregivers like 72-year-old Mr Toh Ah Seng. Mr Toh's wife, Mdm Cheok Ai, was diagnosed with stage four cervical cancer in 2017. Due to her intellectual difficulties, Mr Toh was the lone caregiver of their only son with autism. Mdm Cheok soon needed care beyond what Mr Toh could possibly provide and was admitted into Assisi Hospice in February 2018. This care arrangement was vital to help Mr Toh cope with his family's care needs and to have the space to simply grieve. Our social worker provided a safe outlet for him to express his grief through narrating the story of his life. Being able to converse with our social worker in Hokkien about his life, and to express his thoughts and feelings, was poignant and therapeutic. Assisi Hospice also supported him as he planned his onward journey with his son. Our annual Christmas Light-Up brings the joy of Christmas to Assisi Hospice for our patients and their families. For them, this Christmas will be one to cherish because it may be their last Christmas together. Help us make this Christmas a magical one for them by doing your part to light-up our 11-metre-tall giant Christmas tree! Every $10 donation will light a bulb on our tree, representing your well wishes and blessings. Your donation will enable us to continue providing patients and families like Mr Toh Ah Seng's with the medical care and psychosocial support they need.

Pop-Up Salon for Patients #GivingWeekSG
by Bright Vision Hospital
In support of Giving Week, Bright Vision Hospital is raising fund to start a Pop-Up Salon. We will need $6,000 to fund a year of hairdressing supplies and equipment. Nothing beats looking refreshed from a good haircut and well-trimmed fingernails! With BVH Pop-Up Salon, our patients can look forward to a good hairdo, just as they previously enjoyed before falling sick and especially so for our dementia patients. A new hairstyle and manicure will enhance the social well-being of our patients, which helps in their recovery towards better health. The BVH Pop-Up Salon will operate on a weekly basis and our volunteer hair dressers and manicurists on site will provide grooming services to patients in need. We seek your kind donation to help fund the Pop-Up Salon which will benefit more than 100 patients monthly. No contribution is too small when assisting the sick and needy patients.

Support Singapore's Cat Caregivers
by Cat Welfare Society
