Our Campaign Story

Suzy, The Girl Standing Outside The Supermarket.

My name is Daren and I'm part of the Advocacy & Marketing Team at Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore. Like many of you, I've grown up seeing this blue doll stationed outside supermarkets and have personally donated coins to her.

I did not know she was called Suzy, neither did I know about the cause she was raising funds for.

As a staff of CPAS, I now know her name and the cause she is raising funds for. Suzy represents a girl with cerebral palsy, a lifelong and non-curable condition. It is a complex condition resulting from a brain damage and causes a wide range of limitation in movement, muscle control and posture.

I'm heartened by the work of my colleagues in their intervention, therapy and care services for over 700 children and adults we serve. I have decided to front a fundraising campaign to raise awareness and funds for Suzy.

Under the #SpareYourChangeForSuzy campaign, from 1 August - 31 October 2020, I will be joined by other co-fundraisers for the campaign. I hope to mobilise donors to donate $10 each. Together we will raise a significant amount.

Every dollar counts. Your donation will be matched dollar for dollar by Tote Board and the Government.

I will like to raise funds for Suzy. If you've grown up with her, will you donate just $10 to my campaign? I have taken the first step, please join me to help Suzy to raise funds for children and adults with cerebral palsy and multiple disabilities.
