Fairy Godmother and Cinderella

Our Campaign Storyends 31 Mar 2016, 12 AM
As the Founder of Image Mission and Dress for Success, it is like a fairytale come true. By helping disadvantaged women find hope and confidence in getting employment, we are making their dreams come true. By helping them, we are helping their children and families build a future.
For this campaign, I will take up the challenge to dress like Fairy Godmother on 8 March 2016, and will visit our selected beneficiaries to spread the magic of 'Cinderella'. My team at Image Mission will also join in as other Fairy Godmothers and Cinderellas.
Support us by donating to #Dare2Dress campaign here.
The #Dare2Dress 2016 campaign is a fund-raiser to help unemployed women find confidence and work that will build a future for themselves and their families. Join in the challenge by dressing up as your hero/heroine at work, school, or play and ask your supporters to donate to our cause. Your participation and donation will go to Image Mission Ltd to run the Dress for Success Singapore programme.
Participate as an individual or team by registering as a fundraiser for this campaign. Write your story of which hero you will dress as, on any day between 7 and 11 March 2016, where your supporters can spot you in your hero's dress, and ask them to support you by donating under your campaign.
