Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Dec 2021, 11:59 PM

10 years ago, I had the honour and privilege of joining the Beautiful People family as a mentor and big sister. I can honestly say that that has been one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. I have learnt so much from my mentees and fellow mentors and have experienced love and support like none other from all my sisters. We are, after all, a relationship, not a programme.

As we round up the year and reflect on all the highs and lows we have experienced in the context of a pandemic, I am donating and raising funds for Beautiful People as we continue to build relationships and run programmes with and for our mentees during these challenging times.

My appeal to you is to donate as much as your heart desires, and I will match you dollar for dollar up to $4500 from the COVID-19 bonus I have received as a healthcare professional.

To top it off, besides the fact that all donations are 2.5x tax-exempt, every dollar we raise together up till 31 December will be matched by the Toteboard! This means that for every dollar you donate with all the matching funds, you are, in fact, donating $4 !!

#ChoosetoChange by supporting me in this effort as we round up 2021 with gratitude and hopes for a better 2022!

About Campaign

#ChoosetoChange with Beautiful People to commemorate 15 Years of Mentorship through empowerment!

Our target is $75,000, which will be matched dollar-for-dollar by Toteboard's EFR grant, for all online fundraising via giving.sg. That will mean a whopping $150,000 to celebrate 15 years of Beautiful People!

Beautiful People's #ChoosetoChange campaign seeks to amplify positive impact of mentoring relationships. We hope to inspire you by highlighting mentees who have chose to challenge themselves to achieve their dreams.

Your contribution to the #ChoosetoChange campaign will support Beautiful People's mentorship programmes. Take a step towards making a change in the lives of our mentees - for our mentees to work towards positive change to become the next generation of inspiring leaders.

As Beautiful People is an Institution of a Public Character (IPC), all donations from at least $10 will receive a 2.5x tax deduction.

About The Charity

Mentoring. It is the simple idea that dreams come true because of someone who believes in the one who dreams. This one simple idea has seen us walk into residential rehabilitation homes, schools, living rooms and behind prison bars, to touch the lives of those who have become our family. Beautiful People, started in 2006, is a volunteer movement dedicated to building mentoring relationships that support young women and men, exploring the idea of freedom within and without, and helping them realise their dreams. We are a relationship, not a programme. We refuse to be constrained by the boundaries of fixed programme durations. We celebrate the ordinary everyday heroes who are the mentors and mentees, growing together in an extraordinary journey of challenging their own limits. Our philosophy of support translates into a powerful experience for growth and self-discovery through a combination of life-skills training, mentoring, and coaching.
