Yellow Ribbon Fund Charity Gala 2017
About Campaignends 30 Jun 2017, 11:59 PM
Yellow Ribbon Fund (YRF) will be organising its biennial Charity Gala event on 20 May 2017 at The Ritz-Carlton Millenia. The dinner event hopes to fundraise $1,000,000 for the fund to support the development and implementation of rehabilitation and reintegration programmes for ex-offenders and their families, especially for the children.
In 2017, YRF hopes to disburse close to $1.45 million to 2700 ex-offenders and their families. Your support in making a General Donation or purchasing Dinner Tables at $20,000, $15,000, $10,000 and/or $6,000 per table of ten will greatly assist us in helping ex-offenders who desire to change to rebuild lives, strengthen family ties, and break the vicious cycle of intergenerational crime.
Your support toward this event is greatly appreciated.
For sales of Dinner Tables, YRF Secretariat will be in touch with you upon receipt of donation. Kindly note that only a limited number of $6000 tables are available.
Every year, more than 10,000 ex-offenders complete their sentences and are released from the various prisons and drug rehabilitation centres (DRCs). It is disheartening that ex-offenders have to live with the stigma of having served time behind bars when they are released from prison, one that can often be more punishing than the prison sentence itself. Many ex-offenders, once released, find themselves literally stepping into a second prison. This time it would be a prison with invisible bars, of suspicion, of mistrust and of discrimination.The best rehabilitation regime during incarceration is of no use if ex-offenders find themselves rejected at every turn when they are released into the larger community.Your generous donation to the Yellow Ribbon Fund will go a long way to help us fund rehabilitative and aftercare programmes, which are the supporting mechanisms to facilitate the reintegration of an individual back to the community and his family.
