In December 2015, Faithful+Gould's team in Singapore, together with colleagues from Atkins and CTBH, raised S$1,100 for Infant Jesus Homes & Children's Centre (IJ Homes) from raffle ticket sales. The response was so amazing that in just four days, 295 tickets were already sold.
Proceeds from the fundraiser went towards basic items that were required by IJ Homes for the next three months. This included stationery, diapers, toothpaste, body wash, shampoo and food – items that are often taken for granted.
"It warms my heart to know that one small initiative such as this can make a big difference to the children at IJ Homes."
Rani Krishnan, Faithful+Gould Project Administrator
There were also sufficient funds to sponsor a badminton tournament, which will be held over the school holidays on June 22nd, 2016. The sponsorship covers venue rental, prizes, as well as food and beverages for 40 children from IJ Homes.
"It warms my heart to know that one small initiative such as this can make a big difference to the children at IJ Homes. I have been coordinating with the home's programme executive on both initiatives and was recently told that the children are very excited and can't wait to be at the badminton tournament – that brought a big smile to my face," said Rani Krishnan, project administrator, and corporate social responsibility committee member.
