The International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) will be happening in over 100 countries on 3 December 2010. This year, the United Nations is getting people all over to world to keep a promise they have made: to include persons with disabilities as we move forward as a society.
To commemorate this day in Singapore, the Disabled People’s Association (DPA) is holding a “East Meets West” football match on 27 November 2010 to raise funds.
Another charity post to accumulate my good karma. Brother will have a charity auction this Friday, 31st July 2009 at the Brother Customer Service Centre located on Level 1, Gateway East, 152 Beach Road, Singapore 189721.
This charity Auction is to raise funds for Brother’s adopted charity organization: Asian Women Welfare Association (AWWA). The Asian Women’s Welfare Association (AWWA) is a registered voluntary welfare organization that has a membership body, its own constitution and by-laws. AWWA was established in 1970 and has been maintaining comprehensive programs that target children, youth, adults and families to empower them by maximizing their potential for independence. As a charitable organization they do not receive regular corporate support and hence Brother Singapore is the ‘pioneer’ of corporate participation in AWWA activities.
