Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Dec 2021, 11:59 PM

This campaign has been created on behalf of Elisha and Tiffany, Friends of Canossaville.

--
Hi we are Elisha and Tiffany, friends and students from United World College Singapore. We are coming together to do our part for charity this Season of Giving to raise awareness and funds for our chosen charity, Canossaville Children and Community Services (Canossaville).

Founded 80 years ago, Canossaville serves children and those with hearing loss across the preschool and primary ages. From a young age, we were taught to respect everyone and contribute to the well-being of our community. Therefore, when we heard about Canossaville, we saw a wonderful opportunity to help. We can support these children, some of whom may face additional challenges from a young age due to their additional needs or disadvantaged family backgrounds.

Christmas is the one time of the year where everyone comes together as one. To thank family and friends for supporting Canossaville, we will be baking some delicious cookies.

On that note, we thank you for supporting our campaign and your kindness fills the hearts of the children and their families under the care of Canossaville.

Please do share this campaign with your friends or family.

About Campaign

Every year, we all look forward to a special occasion. For some it could be a birthday, for others, a festive season such as Christmas. While we all celebrate these special occasions in our own ways, many also choose to give and share with others who need a little bit more help.

At Canossaville Children and Community Services, our programmes and services are open to our children and their families all year round, with priority given to those from disadvantaged backgrounds. Education is at the core of what we do and our Canossian Circle of Care provides the supporting structure to children through a preschool, after-school care as well as a child development unit.

This can only be made possible with the support of donors like yourself. We advocate for sustainable giving all year round to support all our programmes and services. In reality, donors tend to only donate at the end of the year during the season of giving.

We acknowledge this and humbly seek your kind support for us to build up enough donations to sustain our programmes and services through the year.

Thank you for not forgetting us during this season of giving. Your special thoughts warm the hearts of our children and their families under our care.
