Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Dec 2021, 11:59 PM

We are 3 sisters who started to learn calligraphy since 4 years old. We would like to share our works to support the Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund (SPMF). In the process of doing so, we hope to make Chinese calligraphy more sought after and spread appreciation for this ancient Chinese art form.

Chinese New Year couplets, or scrolls are painted with beautiful calligraphic Chinese symbols that represent wise messages, or poems, that are supposed to bring good luck and wealth.

You may donate any amount. Donors who contribute $20 and above will receive a Fu (approx 33cm x 33cm). Refer to Picture A

Donation of $100 and above will receive a pair of 4-word couplet (approx 18cm x 68cm). Refer to Picture B

Donations of $200 and above will receive a pair of 7-word couplet (approx 18cm x 103cm). Refer to Picture C

About The Charity

The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund provides pocket money to children from low-income families to help them through school. The children can use this money for school-related expenses, such as buying a meal during recess, paying for transport or using it to meet other schooling needs. The financial help also eases the burden of the many parents who are already struggling to feed their families on their meagre incomes.

The Fund supports about 10,000 children and youth a year. Since the year 2000, the Fund has disbursed more than $80m and helped over 180,000 children and youth.

STSPMF disburses the funds to needy students through participating mainstream schools and disbursing agencies such as Youth Centres, Family Service Centres (FSCs), Special Education (SPED) schools, VWOs working with persons with disability, specialised schools, Children's Homes and PAVE.

STSPMF is a charity with Institution of Public Character (IPC) status.
