Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Jul 2021, 11:59 PM

Hi everyone!

I am a staff from Lakeside Family Services and I'm helping to raise funds for their #ICAN_____ campaign by taking up the #ICAN_____ challenge with #ICANCook. I have my usual 2-3 dishes that I am good at, but I hardly venture beyond cooking anything new. So for the month of June, I will attempt to master 7 new dishes as part of the challenge. I hope that through this, we can inspire children and youths to find their own talents.

Friends who know me, please feel free to suggest a dish you like to see me try, and if I master it, you will get an invite to come try when we are allowed to meet up! =)

You can support me by donating to Lakeside through this page. Funds raised by Lakeside from this campaign will be used to run and enhance their programmes for children and youths.

Thank you so much!

About Campaign

Do you remember what your dreams were when you were a child? As children, our futures lie limitless in the horizon - and we all have dreams that we can do or be something great. Yet, life circumstances like financial difficulties and family issues mean many children and youths are disadvantaged from the start.

We named our fundraiser #ICAN____ to encourage all children and youths to fill in the blank with their dreams and aspirations and uncover their unique potential and talents.

One of our campaign ambassadors, Smitha will be embarking on her personal challenge:#ICANSparkImagination challenge. For 7 days, she will be unlocking the imagination of children at our Lakeside Student Care through teaching speech and drama and writing. Stay tuned as we share other upcoming challenges by our campaign Ambassadors!


#ICAN____ raises funds for Lakeside's children & youth services: Lakeside Student Care, Reading Intervention Services, The GRIT Project. With your support, we can provide meaningful opportunities, mentorship, and practical assistance for children and youths.

You can make a difference in their lives by donating and starting your own #ICAN____ challenge to raise funds! Together, we hope to raise $300,000 and any amount will be greatly appreciated.
