Our Campaign Storyends 26 May 2022, 11:59 PM
As humans we become part of a society, it is in our nature as we needed to work as a team in order to survive before evolution, this behavior remained and nowadays we continue to grow and live in bigger societies.
Working hard to earn our money and support our families give us satisfaction, this is because we are helping our relatives. The bond that exists with our relatives has an impact on the joy we get out of helping them, but the joy from helping people that need it the most and we don't know is unlimited.
You might experience more satisfaction by helping people that are more vulnerable in person than making monetary donations yet donating allows to make a bigger impact, it allows to pay employees that will work only for helping others. I encourage doing both, you don't need to make big donations just what you feel comfortable with, so it doesn't affect your finances and goals.
Whenever you give, you'll get back sooner or later.
As we adapt & embrace the new normal, the future will continue to be challenging. Despite this, the Singapore Red Cross has pressed on to deliver essential care services to the elderly, the disabled, low-income families including the skipped-generation, single-parent households & the migrant workers community and ramped up psychosocial support for these vulnerable groups.
As an independent charitable organisation, we rely on the goodwill of donors & volunteers to advance our humanitarian cause. We appeal to you for your donation, which will help:
- Put food on the table of disadvantaged families, including those whose breadwinners may have lost their jobs;
- Give a leg-up to children & youth from these families, by enhancing their literacy and academics;
- Provide transport for persons with mobility issues to access essential healthcare;
- Offer the precious gift of friendship, wellbeing and home safety to isolated seniors
- Provide residential and day care to persons with disabilities.
The impact of your donation is greater and often more far-reaching than you can imagine. You can ease a family's burden, help children & youth from disadvantaged homes thrive, bring joy and peace of mind to seniors living alone, and provide quality care for persons with multiple disabilities.
On behalf of SRC, I thank you for your support, and I look forward to your continued partnership for humanity.
