About Campaign

Hi, I'm Yvonne and I am a senior executive working at the Goodwill, Rehabilitation & Occupational Workshop (GROW) at Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore. GROW provides vocational training and sheltered employment for adults with cerebral palsy and multiple disabilities.

I am also an avid runner and have completed many marathons. Having interacted with persons with the condition, I have come to realise that completing a 42.195km race is nothing compared to their lifelong marathon. Every step they take is effortful, yet for many of them, there is no clear finishing line in sight.

Using the campaign as an opportunity to do something for CPAS, my husband, Henry, my 3 year old daughter Amber and I support the Spare Your Change For Suzy campaign. Suzy is the icon that represents cerebral palsy and many of you might recognise her.

3 year old Amber is a curious girl and she is able to recognise a wheelchair and is curious about the special needs group. She has been asking me a lot of why and now one of her favorite line is sharing is caring. I wish she could be proud that she is capable to help them too.

By the way, Amber and I are going to draw and bake cookies for this campaign and spread the love. We may not be able to send them over to donors like you that we don't know personally, but we still appreciate your generous contribution! Please find a cute thank you drawing from my daughter Amber as one of the campaign images.

Thank you for donating!
