From The Straits Times: $125,000 Raised for the Singapore Children’s Society

Posted in Media on Saturday, December 25th, 2021

For our Annual Charity Fundraiser this year, MapleBear kids got crafty with shoeboxes to make artworks for donation. We raised $125,000 for the Singapore Children’s Society, to give back and meet the needs of children in our local community.

In the 2021 pandemic year, we had to think out of the box to raise funds with the postponement of our Annual Charity Carnival. We thus launched a Storybox initiative, where parents donated a minimum of $25 for each shoebox and teachers worked hard to create more than 1,800 “Shoebox Stories” as a learning activity with their students.

Using paper scraps, metallic foil and other recyclable materials, our children created miniature story worlds with colourful characters that were worth every penny. We also loved repurposing old shoeboxes and bringing them to life with our children’s favourite stories from classic tales like The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson to The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt – check out their whimsical creations below:

At MapleBear, we love books and the joy they bring to children who are intrinsically curious and imaginative. MapleBear Education Ambassador, Mrs Patricia Koh, emphasised:

“The aim is that the stories we share with our children will take them on a magical journey to explore the world, and allow them to be excited about all the wonderful things they can do to change the lives of those who may have less than us.”

We are thrilled to have a community that always comes together to help make a big, societal impact. MapleBear strives to provide a meaningful learning experience for all children and we are passionate about helping families in Singapore overcome barriers to education.

As a proud supporter and benefactor of Singapore Children’s Society, as well as Singapore Cancer Society, Make-A-Wish Foundation and Children’s Wishing Well, we will continue in our endeavour to make a positive difference and look forward to getting together for our next charity event.

News flash: you’ll find a mention of our efforts to do a little good in The Straits Times and Expat Living!
