About Campaignends 31 Dec 2018, 11:59 PM
Brought into Singapore from Britain in 1984, Suzy was a familiar sight in Supermarkets such as NTUC and Food Chains such as Subway.
Suzy is a girl with cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy is a complex and lifelong condition arising from damages to the brain. It affects movement, balance and posture. Suzy can be spotted in her distinctive blue dress with an Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFO) on her right leg. AFO is a support that might be used by persons with cerebral palsy to improve posture and positioning.
Suzy used to be an icon (#OGinfluencer) in the 80s and 90s, often receiving donations in her box where both children and adults drop their loose change. With her popularity, the donations collected were able to support other children and adults with cerebral palsy and related disabilities.
Fast forward to present day, cashless technologies are in abundance and people start to have less spare change to drop into Suzy's boxes.
As a result, Suzy is slowly disappearing.
This #GivingweekSG, help us bring back Suzy, the #OGInfluencer. Make your donations via Giving.sg to give her a second chance in living out her #OGInfluencer dream.
We want to hear from you! Share stories of your memories with Suzy, snap a picture with Suzy or even send in your suggestions on where you would like to see Suzy!
