Our Campaign Storyends 31 Dec 2021, 11:59 PM
A good friend of mine is launching a few initiatives to raise $40K for AWARE.
Together with a group of about 12 old teammates from the ACJC Swim and Water Polo Team 1998-1999, we are planning to swim 5km per person/ team in the pool together simultaneously in early December 2021 (i.e. 100 laps of an Olympic-sized 50m pool). Our target is to raise $45K in total for AWARE's campaign to fight against sexual violence.
Please consider supporting my fundraising swim at $50 per 50m lap! At $1 for every 1m, it's a steal! =)
About The Charity
The Association of Women for Action and Research (AWARE) is Singapore's leading gender equality advocacy organization. AWARE supports and empowers women on an individual basis and seeks to remove all gender-based barriers that prevent individuals in Singapore from developing their potential to the fullest and realizing their personal visions and hopes. It does this in three ways, namely, research and advocacy, education, and providing social services.
In 2016, AWARE won the Charity Governance Award 2016 for the Medium Charities/IPCs category.
The Charity Governance Awards, (CGA), organised by the Charity Council, aim to promote good governance in the charity sector by acknowledging the excelling work of charities, while inspiring others to emulate their best practices.
AWARE qualified as a candidate for the CGA by becoming a winner of the Charity Transparency Awards (CTA). The CTA recognises charities with good disclosure practices.
