Our Build-A-Little-Home campaign hopes to reach out to young children, in the hopes of creating more awareness about the homeless in Singapore, by planting ‘seeds of hope’ in the little ones. This activity is offered to preschools, schools and community organisations. It aims to raise funds for the programs of New Hope Community Services (NHCS) via an activity designed to engage young children (suitable for ages 2 to 10 and above), to cultivate kindness and compassion. It is a savings money box craft that is constructed out of cardboard, the material that displaced people sleep on each night. It comes with a comprehensive lesson plan to help educators and parents impart meaningful values to our young ones. We aim to show them that although they are young, they can adopt a positive mindset of love, kindness and compassion. By saving diligently and donating their savings, they learn to take small steps to contribute towards ending homelessness in Singapore. Our little ones will help to contribute to providing ‘Little Homes of Hope’ for others and a brighter future for the world that they will grow up to inherit.
How do I participate?
How does it work?
Children will make and decorate ‘Hope Houses’ using a pre-printed cardboard savings money box activity provided by NHCS. They will write a message of hope to the displaced individuals/ families too.
Parents can help their kids to put money into the box and then donate the amount to New Hope Community Services via a QR code printed on the box. Donations of $50 and above is 2.5 times tax deductible.
