Our Campaign Storyends 31 Dec 2020, 11:59 PM
Thank you for taking the time to read this campaign. We have heard a lot of good that Samaritans of Singapore (SOS) is doing, and we would like to help them raise funds, so that they can continue to help the vulnerable in our community.
For this fundraiser, we have created and designed a card game called the #SGCircuitBreakGame. It is a party/drinking card game for Singaporeans. This card game will be sent to you via email (pdf version), and you can start playing with your friends virtually. #StayHome!
*Please send an email to [email protected] (with the donation receipt) and we will send you the game shortly!

About The Charity
On average in Singapore, more than 400 lives were lost to suicide annually from 2014 to 2018: that's about 1-2 suicides every day.
According to the WHO, for every suicide death, more than 20 others would have attempted it.
Samaritans of Singapore (SOS) is the only suicide prevention centre in Singapore. We are a secular non-profit organisation which provides 24-hour confidential emotional support to people thinking about suicide, affected by suicide, or who have difficulty coping during a crisis. We take a holistic approach to suicide work with an emphasis on suicide prevention, intervention and postvention.
We set out to be an Available Lifeline to Anyone in Crisis as we aim to be the Premiere Organisation in Suicide Prevention in Singapore.
