About Campaign

Lunar New Year is about celebrations, gatherings, food and catching up with friends and loved ones. However, some of us do not have the luxury to experience the warmth of the festive season that happens once a year, due to their physical, mental, financial limitations and/or lack of family support.

The Chinese believe that the Lunar New Year is the start of a new beginning. Make a fruitful year for yourself and them when you show a little act of kindness to the less fortunate. Be blessed when you show your compassion.

This festive season, you can help folks like Mr Goh when you set aside a festive budget by helping them fulfil their basic needs for a warm Lunar New Year. Get your children involved in the joy of giving this Lunar New Year by encouraging them to donate some of their ang pow (red packet) money to the less privileged! Make it a family giving tradition where charity begins from home.

When you share, you show them you care.

About the Charity

All donations will be eligible for tax exemption and it will be included automatically in your tax assessment. Receipts will be mailed out for donations of $50 & above. For donations below $50, you may contact us at [email protected] if you require a copy. As Metta sees the importance in saving the environment, we are gradually going paperless for our receipts to all donors with effect from 1 April 2021 onwards. We thank you for your understanding to walk this journey together to protect the environment that we live in.
