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,
Formerly known as Canossaville Children's Home, the residential home was closed earlier this year to make way for an inclusive preschool and student care centre to cater to mainstream and special needs children, giving priority to the most needy. A Child Development Unit (CDU) comprising a team of speech therapists, education psychologists and social workers to meet the specialised needs of the children is also being set up, and is scheduled to be operational in 2018.
In preparation for our new role as Canossaville Children & Community Services, developments are ongoing. This includes the designing of a special curriculum to meet the unique needs of Canossaville, with a distinctive focus on Formation of the Heart, the key foundation of a Canossian education.
Canossaville Children & Community Services is an approved Institute of Public Character (IPC) and is authorised to receive tax-deductible donations.
