This Children’s Day, JCI Mandarin Singapore, a non-profit youth organisation is supporting Singapore Children’s Society to put smiles on the faces of children and youths in need through an online fundraising campaign.
Ending on 31st October, the theme of this ongoing fundraising campaign is “Make a Child Happy This Children’s Day”. This is done through the Give2Children (G2C) platform, the crowdfunding platform which is created by Singapore Children’s Society.
Spreading love to children in need
With a belief of “service to humanity is the best work of life”, JCI Mandarin Singapore wanted to help
Children’s Society continue its meaningful work accumulated over the last 69 years.
One of its long-standing services includes Tinkle Friend, a national toll-free helpline and chatline for all
primary school children in Singapore who need a listening ear. The helpline started in 1984 and the phones are still ringing today. There was an increase in online chats last year and a qualitative analysis of the chats from April to July 2020 surfaced some of the difficulties children experienced, including negative parent- child interactions due to higher parental stress, an inability to meet with friends, and difficulty in contacting their out-of-home social support figures, including teachers and school counsellors.
Manned by trained volunteers and staff, Tinkle Friend provides support, advice and information to lonely and distressed children, especially in situations when their parents or main caregivers are unavailable. This is just one of many services and programmes that Children’s Society runs to protect and nurture children and youth of all races and religions.
The Society is largely funded through donations from corporates and the general public. Almost all of its physical fundraising events were postponed, modified, or cancelled over the past 18 months, resulting in reduced donation sources.
