The Bu Dao Weng full feature film project
for Rainbow Centre
Our Campaign Storyends 28 May 2017, 12 AM
Hello, I am Matt-Q, an award winning Singaporean Singer, Songwriter.
We present to you the BU DAO WENG Film Project. Using the Roly Poly toy as our main source of inspiration, this is a coming-of-age love story that is based on TRUE LIFE ACCOUNTS of my life story.
I was born with severe learning difficulties due to birth complications my mom went through prior to giving birth to me. As such, I developed severe learning difficulties and suffered much abuse, discrimination and rejection throughout my schooling, NS and even my working years as well.
It is due to the fact that there were inspiring and caring teachers who inspired me greatly in spite of my struggles with my learning difficulties that gave me the strength, motivation and drive to press on and to go beyond what even many doctors who diagnosed me thought were not possible, given the severity of my conditions.
The HUMAN factor of RELATIONSHIPS makes all the difference, and that is why we are requesting for your kind assistance and sponsorship- to make this film Bu-Dao Ong a reality. We want to show examples of lives who have been transformed through the loving support and understanding of individuals who make a definite and positive difference in our lives for good.
Some of our intended beneficiaries are those in Rainbow Centre, Pathlight School and Purple Parade.
We require a minimum of $70,000 USD to get this off the ground, and are aiming to work on this together with you.
