Our Campaign Storyends 12 Mar 2020, 11:59 PM
Due to the chaos created by the COVID-19 incident, many organisations are working hard to deal with this situation. Many individuals and families who are affected by this situation may be facing a loss of income and rising expenses due to a greater demand for essentials.
Given an opportunity by giving.sg via the #PledgeYourBirthday campaign, this 26-year-old-recent-University-graduate has decided to chip in on the efforts to contain the effects of the COVID-19 incident. For those who have the heart but may not have the financial capabilities to help as much as you would wish, here's an additional way to help. I will be doing as many pullups as I can over the next 2 months or so with the target of reaching 10,000 in total. I doubt I can reach 10,000 alone so I hope whoever sees this can help both via donating to the cause and also contributing to the total pullup count. If the total pullup count of 10,000 is reached, I will topup an additional $100 for the cause (recent graduate, hence, not much money), otherwise, I will just topup according to how close to 10,000 is reached.
If you do wish to contribute to the pullup count, there are 2 ways you can do it. You could (i) film yourself doing the pullups and send the short clip to project.cali.sg via instagram OR (ii) post the clip on your own account and tag me in your post.
Hope we can all PULL through this trying period together.
