Our Campaign Storyends 23 Jun 2022, 11:59 PM
On my birthday last year, my wish was for those close to my heart to donate to a charity of their choice instead of sending me wishes wishing or buying me gifts. I kickstarted that by donating to the Assisi Hospice as a birthday gift to myself.
This year I would love all of you to celebrate my birthday by donating to Guide Dogs Singapore. Not only will this benefit animal welfare, it benefits the ones who are in need of these wonderful guide dogs who help them.
I aim to run this fundraiser till my next birthday.
Gift me the best gift for my birthday. Be my unicorn!
About The Charity
Based on 2015 Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) findings, there are more than 300,000 people with sensory (blind and deaf) and physical disabilities in Singapore. Out of this, it is estimated 50,000 residents are suffering from vision loss. But only 5% out of 300,000 are gainfully employed. In addition, with the prevalence of diabetes, myopia and aging population, there is an increasing number of people with vision loss who need our services.
At Guide Dogs Singapore Ltd (GDS), we believe that people with vision loss should not be limited by their disability. We aim to enhance the quality of life for people with vision loss through a range of rehabilitation programmes. Since our inception in 2006, our services have grown beyond providing guide dogs to include teaching people with vision loss the skills needed to live independently, and working with community stakeholders to build a supportive society for the visually impaired.
We operate with limited resources, and are grateful for your gifts. Please donate generously to enable us to continue our services and provide more guide dogs to people with vision loss. All direct donations of minimum S$20 are eligible for 250% tax exemption.
Auto-monthly donations are now available. If you are thinking of setting aside an amount for charitable causes in your Will, contact us for a chat.
