Our Campaign Storyends 31 Mar 2020, 11:59 PM
The Table Guy Singapore has always believed in the power of community - more people together can accomplish things that one person alone can.
In this time, even as retail businesses face challenges in this uncertain economic landscape, we choose to celebrate our wonderful community by fundraising for those most impacted by the COVID-19 situation.
The Table Guy Singapore pledges $50 for every $1000 spent in-store from 16 - 31 Mar 2020, and asks community members who aren't planning purchases to contribute in a personal way to this fundraising effort.
This campaign closes on 31 Mar, and all funds will go to The Courage Fund on 1 Apr 2020.
There will be another campaign starting 1 Apr 2020 for those who cannot join this round.
The evolving COVID-19 situation has affected Singaporeans in one way or another, including individuals who are facing loss of income or families that are struggling with additional caregiving duties and additional expenses for essential items.
The Courage Fund was first established in 2003 when Singapore was hit by the SARS outbreak. Fellow Singaporeans donated generously to the Fund to support those who were affected by the outbreak. In this same spirit of uniting the community to support one another through difficult times, Community Chest is rallying the community to provide relief and support to those affected by the current COVID-19 situation.
Where Will Your Donations Go?
Donations will go towards supporting and providing relief to vulnerable individuals and families, including healthcare workers, frontline workers and volunteers, affected by the COVID-19 situation.
