Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Dec 2020, 11:59 PM

The initial plan was to trek to Everest Base Camp in April 2020 to increase awareness of mental health and raise funds to support Caregivers Alliance Limited.

Covid-19 had other ideas... but the purpose remains, and we hope to be able to make it in November 2020. In fact, the coronavirus has shone a spotlight on mental health. And we are more committed than ever to the cause.

Mental illness takes many forms - from autism and intellectual disability in childhood; to anxiety, depression, substance abuse and psychosis in adulthood; through to Alzheimer's and dementia in old age. Most of us can probably think of at least one person in our immediate circle who is affected by mental illness...

Caregivers play a critical role in the recovery of persons with mental health issues. They, too, require support as they shoulder the inevitable financial, psychological and social burdens while caring for their loved ones.

Please join us to help make a difference. No amount is too small... please donate what you can. All funds raised (up to $250,000) will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Tote Board, which means every dollar becomes $2!

*Donations are also eligible for 250% tax deduction if you provide your NRIC/FIN*

All costs for the trek are personally underwritten, and all funds raised will be for the benefit of Caregivers Alliance Limited and its beneficiaries.
