Our Campaign Storyends 30 Sep 2019, 11:59 PM
Hello everybody! I am Klaus!
Having recently graduated from SIT, I pondered on the next step of my life. The conclusion of which was to give back to the society of Singapore.
It is no secret that art grants numerous benefits in life. It helps ailing children gain some control over their helplessness. It reduces pain in cancer patients. It helps Alzheimer's patients develop a new language of communication and combat memory loss.
After edifying myself with the work that The Red Pencil does, it inspired me to help raise funds for The Red Pencil so more people may benefit from art. Once this campaign concludes, I will be sending you a charcoal-sketched art of Singapore landmarks/cities as a token of gratitude.
The photos of the charcoal-sketched art are what you will be receiving for your help in donating, with a personal thank you note attached.
Please fill this google form up after donating so I may deliver the sketches.
The truth of the matter is that art is a vehicle to communicate emotions that may otherwise be difficult to articulate, and anybody can benefit from art therapy. If it was within our power to help others, no matter the scale of our contribution, shouldn't we?
*Disclaimer: All funds raised will be contributed directly to The Red Pencil (Singapore)'s programmes (Singapore only).
About The Charity
The Red Pencil (Singapore) is an Institution of Public Character and a registered charity founded in Singapore with a mission to bring the benefits of arts therapy (drawing, music, movement and dance) to children, adults and low-income families who have been through overwhelming and traumatic life circumstances such life-threatening illness, violence and abuse, for which they may have no words.
We partner with hospitals, family centres, foster and elderly homes and shelters, schools and prisons, and all health-related institutions to help them incorporate arts therapy as part of their existing psycho-social programmes.
The creative process of arts therapy allows our service users to express the unspeakable, to experience release and relief, to find new resources, gain self-confidence and feel empowered to move on towards a more hopeful and happier life. At The Red Pencil (Singapore), we are dedicated to the resilience and long-term recovery of the most vulnerable from all walks of life, to allow them to grow and become healthy and happy human beings for the world of tomorrow.
Through arts therapy, The Red Pencil (Singapore) helps break the vicious cycles of helplessness and violence, reduces stress and trauma and offers a way of expression towards balance, self-empowerment and resilience. Anyone, anywhere, at any stage in their life, can benefit from arts therapy.
