Its SHIOK to GIVE!

Our Campaign Storyends 31 Dec 2015, 12 AM
Shiok!'s aims to bring back the kampong spirit through sharing of community stories, promoting local culture and supporting home-grown enterprises and organisations.
Having promoted 2015 SEA Games on home soil and supported Team Singapore throughout our record-breaking Golden campaign, we will like to do the same for and share the spirit of ASEAN Para Games 2015 - Celebrate the Extraordinary. This is timely as #GivingWeek from 1-7 December coincides with start of APG on 3 December.
Throughout December, Shiok! will #BackUpAPG2015 by sharing stories of the extraordinary on www.shiok.sg, rally support for #TeamSingapore, promote #GivingWeek on social media channels and raise funds for Singapore Disability Sports Council through monetary pledges matched to medals won, as well as proceeds from sales through our Shiok! store. Our fundraising goal is $2015 in recognition of the special year that has been our Golden Jubilee.
Why should you join our efforts? Because it is SHIOK to GIVE!
The Singapore Disability Sports Council (SDSC) is the national sports body for the disabled in Singapore. It is a voluntary organisation that is registered with the Commissioner of Charities. SDSC is the only organisation that provides a range of sports and games for all persons with disabilities at both a recreation and competitive level.
SDSC firmly believes in the rehabilitative and therapeutic value of sports. Its programmes and activities underscore its guiding principle that 'Disability Must Never Disqualify'. Thus, SDSC aspires to provide the disabled with opportunities to train, participate and excel in sports for local, regional and international competitions; to enhance the lifestyles of the disabled and integrate them into the community through recreational sports and activities; and to increase public awareness of and promote widespread support for the sporting and recreational needs of the disabled community in Singapore.
