Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Dec 2021, 11:59 PM

I started volunteering with Beautiful People in 2007. My reason for choosing to volunteer with youths in Beautiful People is simple.

When I was in my teenage years, I had mentors who guided me through my ups and downs. For me, paying it forward of what was given to me is crucial.

As a volunteer here, we constantly emphasise that we are a relationship, not a programme. From there, this relationship had bloomed and slowly became an extended family for me. Such as when my dad suddenly passed away earlier this year, Beautiful People had supported me through their love and presence.

At Beautiful People, we believe that every dream matters and that aligns to my mission at work for #thydreamsmatter.

This year, for the Christmas season, I have pledged myself to fundraise $3000 for my extended family by 31 Dec 2021, to Achieve Thy Dreams and help more youths in achieving their dreams!

Your donations will be doubled as it will be matched by Tote Board's EFR grant, amplifying your contribution. Join me and #ChoosetoChange with any amount!

All contributions of $50 and above will receive a book written by me with a personalised message and signature.

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.
