Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Dec 2015, 11:59 PM

Playeum, Asia’s first Children Centre for Creativity, seeks to inspire children to ask questions and figure out answers. We know they do this best when they have the time, space, and tools, to play.
In Playeum, you will not see token cartoony characters enticing kids to have fun. The Centre resembles a warehouse filled with everyday materials, teaching kids that they have everything they need to be creative. Playeum provides the impetus to create magic in their minds and with their hands. Play IS the story and the process. Play IS creativity. And Play SHOULD be for every child.
So, this Christmas, I wanted to contribute to Playeum’s Play-It-Forward program, where a $10 donation brings 1 child from our beneficiaries into the Centre, to engage in meaningful play.
I also invite you to join me in "Playeum Presents: Petrina’s 25 Days of Crazy Crafty Christmas Contributions!" - creating fun crafts and gifts with your children, and maybe educating them about how they can also #playitforward

About The Charity

Playeum is a non-profit independent organisation that champions children through play, creativity and the arts, and is also an advocate and promoter of the voice and rights of children. They see children as authentic culture citizens. Through direct participation and collaborations with artists and art groups, they offer all children equal opportunities to create, express and ignite their imagination while using play to enhance social emotional learning and confidence building.

They run Asia's first Children's Centre for Creativity currently located at the serene settings of Gillman Barracks. The Centre is opened to ALL children, where they can play freely everyday 6 days a week. For those where fees are a consideration, they have the Play-It-Forward fun where donors pay it forward. Playeum works closely with community partners such as Family Service Centres (FSCs), Children's Home & Child Protection Services to ensure that children from disadvantaged backgrounds have the space and time to play creatively, through the support of the Play-It-Forward programme.

Playeum also does social impact work with children from challenging backgrounds through high touch programmes and workshops that use play to enhance social emotional learning and confidence building.
