Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Jul 2022, 11:59 PM

To pull oneself together is to regain calmness and normal behaviour after an unpleasant situation. We understand that during this Covid-19 period, migrant workers barely get to see their family and in general, their work conditions are tough. Through ItsRainingRaincoats (IRR), PushPullGive (PPG) wants to let our migrant workers know that we're here for them to help them 'pull it together' and to pull through unpleasant times with them together.

From 01MAY to 31JUL 2022, PPG aims to raise $10,000 which will be donated to IRR to aid Singapore's Migrants Workers. This project will be supported by our partners, gym members, friends and family.

To raise further awareness for the project and as a symbolization of pulling through difficult times physically and mentally, two of PPG's trainers will then be doing 10,000 pull ups in 24hrs (from 30JUL to 31JUL).

About The Charity

ItsRainingRaincoats (IRR) is an organisation that aims to improve the lives of migrant workers in Singapore, by building bridges to strengthen their integration into our community, city and country. We employ authentic and nimble strategies to help improve the quality of the workers' lives and make them feel valued, appreciated, safe and welcome in Singapore. Our raincoat emblem symbolizes the protection we provide them from their metaphorical thunderstorms.

Started in 2015, IRR was founded by Harvard-educated lawyer Dipa Swaminathan. She is supported by an amazing team of dedicated professionals who volunteer their time and energies in the name of a common calling.

We have come a long way since, with a huge team of over 500 volunteers and several awards. Behind us as the wind beneath our wings is a wide network of connections among migrant workers, employers, dorm operators, contractors and sub-contractors, government agencies, NGOs, the media and members of the public who collectively form the village that allows us to do what we do. We have a combined social media following of nearly 30,000 and growing. Our journey so far has been organic and when we are asked what our plans for growth are, the answer is simple: we will continue to evolve organically, extend our branches where the needs are and not be limited by a clinical blue print. The only constant is growth.
