Our Campaign Storyends 30 Sep 2016, 12 AM
Every month Fuze Night brings together the people making a difference from all sectors in Singapore in a fun, relaxed environment. Audience members hear stories of inspiration from those creating social movements that lead to positive change, as well as learning from noted speakers in their respective fields. Every month, we aim to donate the door sales (minus fees) to a difference beneficiary.
For our Fuze Night in June, we chose the Yellow Ribbon Fund as Denise Chow spoke at the event, sharing the important work that the Fund does to help give offenders a second chance and reduce the impact on their families.

Every year, more than 10,000 ex-offenders complete their sentences and are released from the various prisons and drug rehabilitation centres (DRCs). It is disheartening that ex-offenders have to live with the stigma of having served time behind bars when they are released from prison, one that can often be more punishing than the prison sentence itself. Many ex-offenders, once released, find themselves literally stepping into a second prison. This time it would be a prison with invisible bars, of suspicion, of mistrust and of discrimination.The best rehabilitation regime during incarceration is of no use if ex-offenders find themselves rejected at every turn when they are released into the larger community.Your generous donation to the Yellow Ribbon Fund will go a long way to help us fund rehabilitative and aftercare programmes, which are the supporting mechanisms to facilitate the reintegration of an individual back to the community and his family.
