Do You Know That This Week (1 to 7 Dec) Is Singapore's Giving Week?

Time flies, we are already in the very last month of 2015 and soon we all will be celebrating the most celebrated season of the year, Christmas and soon after that will be welcoming yet another brand new year. 

I deemed (myself) to be one of the lucky bunch who have a shelter, a job, still in considerably good shape of health and do not have much to worry about daily life (financially). Having said that, I am sure we all know that there are many others who are not as fortunate us living their lives in an undesirable condition and any help granted to them is god send.

Just last week, I've received an email from Kevin of Turtleinvestor.net about the upcoming Giving Week (which is this week) but due to my busy work schedule, I've totally forgotten about this until seeing an article (about Giving Week) in today's Straits Times.  

I like the motto of the Giving Week campaign :

"Giving Is Easy"
In fact, it is truly easy and everyone can do it. I do believe that if everyone can do just a little bit more (say "thank you" with a smile, give out seat to the needy or donating to the charity, just to name a few), we can make our environment a better place!

To learn more about the Giving Week campaign as well as what the organizer (Giving.sg) can do to help the needy (for 360 Non-profit Organizations), do check out their official website

So, now you know why it is "Give and Take" and not "Take and Give"? Because Giving should come before Taking.

  1. I have never heard about giving week in Singapore but having read this post I thought why don’t we make the same tradition here, in the US? This would be nice to see people making life better for those who are in deep need. I read freshessays before this post and the idea of writing an essay for attracting attention to charity had occurred to me. In addition to the Singapore’s experience I think it is possible to act here. Thank you for posting this article.

    1. Thanks for dropping by and comment

    2. HI Justin! I am leading GivingWeek in Singapore - just to let you know, GivingWeek celebrates GivingTuesday as well. GivingTuesday started in the States and is available. Have a look and get in touch if you like :)

    3. Michiyo, Thanks for the clarification, I didn't know that there is GivingTuesday too. All the best in your venture.
