Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Apr 2018, 11:59 PM

As I turn 30 this month, to celebrate this milestone, I'm reaching out to friends and family to help me fundraise for children through Playeum!

Playeum is a non-profit organisation that champions children through play and creativity, and is also an advocate and promoter of the voice and rights of children. Playeum runs Asia's first Children's Centre for Creativity where children can play 6 days a week.

By donating to this campaign, you will be giving opportunities to children who may not have access to play, helping them imagine, create and grow!

To thank you for supporting in my campaign, for every $10 donated, I would be happy to make you a calligraphy card (examples are at @lostandfoundlines on instagram) - please drop me a private message if you'd like one! Thanks a million!

About Campaign

Playeum is a non-profit independent organisation that champions children through play and creativity, and is also an advocate and promoter of the voice and rights of children. They see children as authentic cultural citizens and advocate for children by ensuring that each child is given equal opportunities to play; and playing in a way that ensures growth and learning.

They run Asia's first Children's Centre for Creativity at Gillman Barracks. The Centre is opened to ALL children, where they can play freely everyday 6 days a week. For those where fees are a consideration, they have the Play-It-Forward(PIF) fund where donors pay it forward.

Playeum works closely with community partners such as Family Service Centres (FSCs), Children's Home & Child Protection Services to ensure that children from disadvantaged backgrounds have the space and time to play creatively, through the support of the PIF programme which provides free entry to Playeum's Centre.

Playeum strives for a world of inclusiveness, where every child of any socio-economic background can play side-by-side without fear of judgement through the PIF programme. Through open-ended play, children become masters of their own worlds where creating, exploring, conquering fears, negotiating, making decisions and resolving conflicts become second nature. Providing this physical space empowers children and allows them to step forward to become contributing global citizens.

Support Playeum's PIF programme this Giving Week.
