Our Campaign Story

ends 24 Jun 2021, 11:59 PM

Everyone of us is a caregiver for someone we love! As a caregiver that likes to cycle, I like to make a small request to all caregivers who like to cycle to also support this fundraising for caregivers!

You donate and we target to cycle up to 1000KM with a group of my friends by the end of May 2021!

About Campaign

Walk for Mental Wellness (W4MW) is a fundraising campaign to raise funds for Caregivers Alliance Limited (CAL). Tapping on the Tote Board's Enhanced Fund-Raising Programme, we aim to raise at least $250,000 for a dollar-for-dollar matching from the Government.

Leveraging on this campaign, we hope to raise greater awareness about mental health and CAL's role in helping and supporting caregivers of persons with mental health issues and to mobilise more donors and supporters for our cause. Champions who are keen advocates for mental wellness and caregiving will be participating in this campaign.

You Donate $100, Champions Walk 1 km

Based on the idea of "You Donate, We Walk", every $100 raised will amount to 1 km in walking distance. As a donor, you are encouraged to channel your donation to any of the Mental Wellness Champions from the Individual or Group category, and your selected Champion will clock the distance that matches the donation amount that you donated. All donations $50 and above will qualify for 250% tax-deductions.
