The time has come, a new milestone in our lives. My Big 4 & My Beth's Blessed 4!
The past decade has been nothing short of amazing & it's largely dedicated to all the support & love that each of you have given me. All the laughter, joy, successes & even failures and disappointments made the experience along the way even more fruitful.
I am thankful that I am blessed enough to afford anything I need or possibly want & though deeply appreciated, would rather not have any of your money spent on unnecessary gifts to us.
In Jan 2013 on my Big 3, I made a donation & together with friends & SRI5000, raised $20,740 to setup the WIFI and IT infrastructure for the residents of the Chen Su Lan Methodist Childrens Home.
This time around, in Jan 2023, we have decided to adopt MINDS as our choice of charity.
For the past 2 yrs since we moved into our new home, we pass MINDS Idea Employment Development Centre on a daily basis - in the morning whilst sending Beth off the school, going out to work & subsequently even on our daily evening / night walks. It touches my heart to always peak into the classrooms & see how they are helping those with special needs, learn a skillset such that they can integrate and contribute back to society. This we feel is indeed extremely meaningful.
A big shoutout to each and everyone of you that if we have made a little difference in your lives, do support our cause, any donation of any amounts will make a difference!

About The Charity
Since Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS) was founded in May 1962, MINDS has grown to become one of the oldest and largest non-governmental organisations catering to the needs of persons with intellectual disability (PWIDs) in Singapore.
We run 4 Special Education Schools; 3 Employment Development Centres (EDCs); 8 Training and Development Centres (TDCs); 2 Homes (one for adults, one for children); 1 Hostel (for adults), and a Caregivers Support Centre and home-based care services to cater to the educational, vocational, social and welfare needs of people with intellectual disability. To ensure employment opportunities for our clients, we have our own Allied Health Professionals and Social Enterprise Department.
MINDS aims to provide a seamless range of quality services that meet the current and future needs of persons with intellectual disability, and their caregivers.
