Our Campaign Story

"In charity, there is no excess." - Francis Bacon

Being born in Singapore is a natural privilege, and being physically able-bodied is a gift. Most of us have the capacity to do good, pay it forward, and spread the message, to communities that need help. A simple donation can make a significant impact on the physically disabled at SPD, where they go through rehab, social support, employment training, and get access to assistive technology.

It's my dad's 60th birthday, and this is my fourth fundraising campaign since I was in Secondary 3, which is only possible because my super dad brought me up by role modelling with his good heart and selflessness. I dedicate this campaign to him as he wanted nothing for his birthday except donations to charity.

I am committed to bring in other key opinion leaders, content creators and partner companies, to kickstart a much bigger movement with
- A larger fundraiser,
- Spreading awareness to SPD through key opinion leaders,
- Encouraging volunteers to participate in SPD activities.

About The Charity

SPD is a local charity set up in 1964 to help people with disabilities maximise their potential and be a part of mainstream society.

We are here to help children and youths with special needs reach for the stars and be the best that they can be through early intervention and educational support.

We strive to boost the self-reliance and mobility of persons with disabilities within the community, and we do so through therapy services, assistive technology and the support and encouragement of our care team.

Our day care programmes provide respite to families, making it possible for persons with disabilities to stay with their loved ones at home for as long as possible without having to resort to institutional care.

A strong advocate for inclusive employment, we train people with disabilities and work with them to seek suitable employment opportunities so that they can be financially independent and lead a full and engaged life.

After more than 50 years, we remain focused and committed to enabling people with disabilities.
