Our Campaign Story

ends 27 Dec 2015, 11:59 PM

The pastry chefs at Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore present a stunning collection of handcrafted fondant fairy princesses and princes this Christmas to raise funds for charity. A limited edition of only 120 fairy princesses and princes will be available for purchase from S$180 each and the proceeds will go towards buying books as Christmas gifts for the children at AG Home, a non-profit, full-fledged residential home for teenage girls; the remaining 70% will be donated to Canossaville Children’s Home.

To create the fairy princesses and princes, the pastry team used a total of 150 kilograms of icing sugar paste. Working together, they spent 800 hours altogether to handcraft the exquisite details.

Purchases can be made via The Line Shop on Level 1 of the hotel from 19 November 2015 and at the Festive Shoppe in the lobby from 27 November 2015, and donors will have their names displayed next to their choice of a fairy princess or prince on the tree.

About The Charity

Canossaville Children and Community Services (Canossaville) runs an inclusive Student Care Centre in the Aljunied-MacPherson area. Our programmes cater to both mainstream children, as well as those with mild-to-moderate additional needs, giving priority to the poorest of the poor living in the lower income neighbourhoods. We are open to all faiths and races.

Aged between seven to twelve years old, our children are taught values and skills to prepare them for life. Under our "Formation of the Heart" programme, they are nurtured to be persons of integrity, committed to God and caring for others. Within a safe and value rich environment, every child is empowered to develop their God-given talents to the fullest.

We also have a Child Development Unit set up this year, with a team of specialists comprising Social Workers, an Educational Psychologist, a Speech Language Therapist, and an Occupational Therapist to support children with additional needs.

Founded by the Canossian Sisters in 1941, Canossaville is supported by the Ministry of Social and Family Development, National Council of Social Service and the Early Childhood Development Agency. It is also an approved Institute of Public Character and is authorized to receive tax-deductible donations.
