Some fifteen socially-minded exercise enthusiasts gathered in the Singapore Botanic Gardens recently for a charity pilates event in support of ONE (SINGAPORE)’s $10 Campaign.
The event - organised on Saturday 28 May by PushPullGive, a social enterprise startup that fuses fitness and health activities with community initiatives - raised more than S$250.
“We were excited to partner with ONE (SINGAPORE) because we know that poverty is a real problem, but one that we can all help to address,” says Konrad Haedicke, one of PushPullGive’s co-founders. “Our social enterprise aims to push individuals to be socially active, pull them out of their comfort zones and offer opportunities to give back to society.”
Partnerships are an important part of spreading awareness and taking concrete action on poverty and inequalities, both here in Singapore and overseas. Here are a few ways your organization can get involved in the $10 Campaign:
- Share information about the campaign with employees & clients to encourage them to participate. Sign-up to stay up-to-date!
- Sponsor the Campaign
- Commit to matching employee donations
- Host a road show for employees and partners
“The number ten of the $10 Campaign serves as a reminder that at least one in ten Singaporeans lives in poverty,” explains ONE (SINGAPORE) president Nichol Ng. “This year-long campaign aims to raise $100,000 to support an Emergency Fund as well as long-term solutions to end poverty and inequalities. Partnerships – like the one with PushPullGive – are a key component of the campaign to Make Poverty History. Please join us in this campaign!”
