With the theme Living Dreams for its 12th edition, ChildAid 2016 is a celebration of youths who have been inspired to pursue their dreams; relentless in spite of personal challenges, and fearless in beating the odds.
Donations to ChildAid will be shared equally between the two charities.
Your generosity will go a long way in helping the children supported by these two funds navigate through their challenges and achieve success in the fields they choose.

About the Charity
The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund provides pocket money to children from low-income families to help them through school. The children can use this money for school-related expenses, such as buying a meal during recess, paying for transport or using it to meet other schooling needs. The financial help also eases the burden of the many parents who are already struggling to feed their families on their meagre incomes.
The Fund supports about 10,000 children and youth a year. Since the year 2000, the Fund has disbursed $68m and helped over 170,000 children and youth.
STSPMF disburses the funds to needy students through participating mainstream schools and disbursing agencies such as Youth Centres, Family Service Centres (FSCs), Special Education (SPED) schools, VWOs working with persons with disability, specialised schools, Children's Homes and PAVE.
STSPMF is a charity with Institution of Public Character (IPC) status.
