Thank you for taking two minutes out of your day to read this - I won't keep you for long!
It's that heart-warming time of year when we are all thinking about the time we will spend with our loved ones and all the lovely gifts we will buy for them.
Sadly, not every child can even spend Christmas in a safe environment. I am running the Standard Chartered Half Marathon here in Singapore on the 4th December in the hope that I can raise some money to give the children of Canossaville Children's home a brighter Christmas.
There are 68 children and I would love to raise $150 per child to do something nice with them on one of the days that I am with them or to buy them a gift or something that they need for school/general.
Big or small - anything that you can give will be very gratefully appreciated by the children and myself.
100% of your donations via this page will go directly to the Children's home.
Thank you again for reading,
The Canossian Sisters, in response to the rapidly changing social landscapes, have embarked on an inclusive preschool and student care centre. The project aims to cater to mainstream and mild to high functioning special needs children, giving priority to the most needy.
A Child Development Unit (CDU) is also being set up to meet the special needs of the children and is scheduled to operate in 2008. Located within the Canossian Eduplex in the MacPherson/Circuit Road area, Canossaville reaches out and lends support to preschool children and students in the neighbourhood.
Canossaville Children & Community Services is an approved Institute of Public Character (IPC) and is authorised to receive tax-deductible donations.
