Hello, my name is Beverly!
I am turning 17 this year, and I want to do something slightly different.
Each year, I receive many gifts from my wonderful family and friends. But I really want your money to go towards people who needs and deserves it more than me.
I've always been an advocate for poverty, so I'm starting my journey to possibly end poverty small by giving back to the people in Singapore. You'd be surprised to find out how many people and families do not have sufficient funds for food, clothing, school, shelter and other essential expenditures in Singapore.
Your donations can help these people and families live a better life.
Let's come together as one to help them by reaching our goal, if not, more. This would be a great birthday present for me.
Thank you all for your generosity!
All my love,
1 in 10 Singaporeans are living in poverty.
Join us in taking action to Make Poverty History by donating to the $10 campaign!
With your donation, individuals and families in need will receive financial support. Your donation will provide for needs such as a ride to work for a low income worker or diapers for a child in need. Additionally it supports our research and advocacy efforts which create long-term solutions to eradicate poverty.
