Our Campaign Storyends 30 Sep 2021, 11:59 PM
ReAct, Activate's CSR community programme, strives to make a real and sustainable difference in people's lives. We aspire to react proactively to the community's needs and demands through philanthropic giving and re-act continuously in supporting the causes we believe in to create a positive and enduring impact on the lives of individuals.
This August and September, we will embark on our inaugural ReAct campaign by supporting the #HOWRU Virtual Walkathon organised by SOS.
As an advocate for health and wellness, Activate hopes to stand in solidarity with those in despair. We hope to do our part by raising funds for SOS that will allow them to continue carrying out the critical support services for the beneficiaries.
We hope to raise at least $10,000 in support of SOS, and we will do a dollar-for-dollar corporate matching up to $8,000 to support the cause.
Going beyond monetary donations, 35 Activate employees will also participate in the virtual walkathon and aim to clock a total of 3 million steps to walk alongside people in distress and raise awareness of mental health in Singapore.
Your donation will motivate and inspire them to achieve the target!
About The Charity
On average in Singapore, more than 408 lives were lost to suicide annually from 2015 to 2020: that's about 1-2 suicides every day.
According to the WHO, for every suicide death, more than 20 others would have attempted it.
Samaritans of Singapore (SOS) is the only suicide prevention centre in Singapore. We are a secular non-profit organisation which provides 24-hour confidential emotional support to people thinking about suicide, affected by suicide, or who have difficulty coping during a crisis. We take a holistic approach to suicide work with an emphasis on suicide prevention, intervention and postvention.
