Our Campaign Storyends 31 Dec 2017, 11:59 PM
Christmas is a joyful, warm and festive season- a season where we share our love by exchanging gifts and presents with family, friends and colleagues. Instead of exchanging gifts, the idea of giving and sharing the joy with everyone through donations during Christmas started 2 years ago after hearing what some of my cousins are doing. While many are fortunate to have a stable and comfortable roof, a happy family, ability to do whatever we want, there are some whom have so little.
This year, I have chosen Singapore Cancer Society as the beneficiary for the donations and using Giving.sg as the platform. We have heard of healthy people, who are diagnosed with Cancer, some at a very young age. I hope the donations can help give patients better quality of treatment and support.
