Our Campaign Story

ends 15 Aug 2021, 11:59 PM

The 800 for 80th challenge is in support of The Never-Ending Gift campaign commemorating Canossaville's 80th Anniversary.Donations are matched by the Singapore Government & Toteboard.

Meet two groups of Gift-ers coming together to GIFT their effort and time in support of our children and their families.

Sherwin and his group of cyclist friends from church, raised funds for Canossaville last year through a similar effort. The group sees parallels between cycling and Canossaville's mission. To them, nurturing and educating children is a journey, one often filled with ups and downs. The group hopes to rally donors to support the children and their families, who may be faced with more complex and challenging circumstances in life.

The walker group have a close connection with Canossaville too. One of the members, Diana is a staff of Canossaville and rallied her walking group to participate in this meaningful challenge. She hopes to raise awareness of Canossaville and encourage likeminded walkers to walk for a good cause in a fun, meaningful and healthy way.

Both teams have pledged to clock 800km either by cycling or walking from 15 July to 15 August 2021. The cyclists will clock 800km each, while the walkers will do so in teams.

Please support their efforts by donating $10 per km and let's target to raise $8,000 together!

The teams will do the hardwork, we hope that you can do the HEARTwork!

Thank you!

About Campaign

All donations to the Never-Ending Gift Campaign are matched dollar for dollar by the Singapore Government and Tote Board.

This year, we celebrate the 80th Anniversary of Canossaville and we are grateful for the unwavering support and everlasting faith of our partners and friends. With the dollar match, your donation will go twice as far with double the impact!

Canossaville started as Canossa Orphanage on 15 August 1941, together with Canossa Convent Primary School at Sallim Road in response to the increasingly urgent need to serve the poor in the Geylang-Aljunied area.

Over the years, the Canossian Sisters and the children endured a war, relocation to Malaysia, expansion, and finally as Canossaville Children and Community Services today. Mother Foundress, St Magdalene, always said that we must change with the sign of the times. As such, Canossaville will continue to grow and strengthen our support for the children, families, and the communities.

The proceeds from this campaign would ensure that we continue to provide our essential programmes and services to our children and families from all race and faiths, persist in providing early intervention support for our children with hearing loss, and grow and expand our assistance to those in need.

Please also share this campaign with your families and friends and encourage them to Be a Never-Ending Gift to our children.

Thank you, and may God bless you!
