Our Campaign Storyends 19 Apr 2020, 11:59 PM
Simple individual fund raising to help support people affected by the covid 19 situation. No donation is too small as it all adds up. :)
While I do not have much financial resources to help (full time student with a small side business selling memory lockets), I thought...Hey, why not use my handmade jewelry to help raise some funds?
So, those who donate at least $25 can receive a pair of handmade mask-design earrings (with hypoallergenic surgical steel) or brooch, as a thank you for your generosity!
HOW TO REDEEM:
Drop me a direct message on my Facebook page or Instagram or Carousell. My username on all social media is Hobeylocks. I understand no one can meet up now so I will cover normal mail to mail to you!

Thank you again for your generosity and/or sharing of this campaign!
The evolving COVID-19 situation has affected Singaporeans in one way or another, including individuals who are facing loss of income or families that are struggling with additional caregiving duties and additional expenses for essential items.
The Courage Fund was first established in 2003 when Singapore was hit by the SARS outbreak. Fellow Singaporeans donated generously to the Fund to support those who were affected by the outbreak. In this same spirit of uniting the community to support one another through difficult times, Community Chest is rallying the community to provide relief and support to those affected by the current COVID-19 situation.
Where Will Your Donations Go?
Donations will go towards supporting and providing relief to vulnerable individuals and families, including healthcare workers, frontline workers and volunteers, affected by the COVID-19 situation.
