About Campaign

#YOLO2020 was launched on 28 Nov 2018 as a fundraising campaign for CAL and to raise awareness of mental wellness. A total of 48 volunteers signed up to climb to Everest Base Camp on May 2020 but this was postponed due to COVID-19.

The trip to EBC is still kept alive and has been postponed to May 2021. While we are unsure if the trip can take place in view of COVID-19, #YOLO2020 is very important to CAL because it is a relatable way to spread the message about mental health and caregiving.

It has been reported in the Singapore Mental Health Study 2016 that one in seven people in Singapore has experienced mental health issues in their lifetime. This is why we need to increase awareness of mental health and raise funds to support Caregivers Alliance Limited, so that we can continue to train and support caregivers. There remains many who are in need of help from CAL.

The experience of people with mental health conditions and their caregivers is a journey of resilience. For many of them, just getting through daily life can feel like scaling a mountain. Life has its ups and downs, but we want to be able to put our best foot forward and give everything our best shot, so as to get more people to talk about mental health issues, and debunk the many misconceptions surrounding them.

All donations will go towards supporting the caregivers of persons with mental health condition. Donate now, and make an great impact in a caregiver's journey in caring for their loved ones.
