Our Campaign Storyends 16 Jun 2016, 11:59 PM
Hello there! We are a group of youths who have been volunteering with the Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN) since last November. Having interacted with the clients from APSN Centre For Adults, we have been inspired by their resilience. Despite facing a set of challenges in their lives, they persevere.
Along the way, we found out that APSN's van would be scrapped in April. We learnt that the van was an integral part of transporting clients to internships, and merchandise to fundraising locations. As such, we want to reach out to the public for help, and this is how #WheelsforAPSN was born.
With your help, we can raise $46,000 to get a brand new van for APSN and its beneficiaries.
Every dollar counts. Every person reached matters. When you share #WheelsforAPSN with your friends and families, you bring all of us closer to hitting our target goal.
You can support this campaign by changing your Facebook profile picture to the campaign poster and leaving the crowdfunding link as your caption.
We thank you for your donation!
If you would also like to contribute to this cause directly, you can join Project Inky (P.Inky), an ongoing initiative where we partner APSN's beneficiaries to explore story and poetry. You can find out more at http://projectinky.com
