About Campaign

ChildAid is an annual charity concert in aid of The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund (ST SPMF) and The Business Times Budding Artists Fund (BT BAF).

This year's ChildAid, themed 'All Together Now', promises a return to a full scale concert and celebrates the frisson, the exultant moment and wonder that has arisen since we have been able to encounter one another in person and experience the world firsthand again. This year's concert seeks to encourage audiences to imagine the possibilities that lie before us now as we reconnect and learn from one another, realising once again the strength that we derive from diversity.

As we emerge from the pandemic and face the future, the needs of our beneficiaries and their families have become even more pronounced and urgent. On top of the existing challenges that our beneficiaries had been facing pre-pandemic, the two charities have observed an increase in the quantity and complexity of these challenges faced by them. We hope you may open your hearts and support ChildAid 2022 so that together, we can take care of and uplift the lives of our vulnerable children and youth.

ST SPMF pays for socially disadvantaged school-going children's meals and transport fees, while BT BAF supports financially disadvantaged but artistically talented children's lessons in the performing and visual arts.

Donations will be eligible for 2.5 times tax deduction. ChildAid is jointly organised by The Straits Times and The Business Times.
