Part of the “Let’s Care and Celebrate!“ campaign, the Give a Gift Charity Auction is an opportunity to touch many lives through shopping!
There will be a series of fashion items available for bidding over a 2-week period. If you win the auction, you will make payment by donating the amount to SCWO (via DBS bank transfer or cheque payment) and I will mail the item to you! Kindly note that only Singaporeans or those residing in Singapore can take part.
I am really fortunate to have the kind support of several popular bloggers! They readily agreed to contribute to this event when I approached them! So, be prepared to see contributions from:
- Dottie & Stephie (Fashion Nation)
- X-Wen (Fash-Eccentric)
- Alvin (Bagaholicboy)
- Nicole (Cherry Magazine)
- Karen Ashley (Renzze.com)
- Miss Glitzy & friends
The auction will commence in 2 batches. The first batch of items will start to accept bids from 22nd March (Monday) at 12pm sharp, and this auction will end on 28th March (Sunday) 12pm. Similarly, the next auction starts on 29th March 12pm and ends on 4th April noon.
All winners will be notified via email and “payment” will be made by donating the amount directly to SCWO. Once I have verified that the donation is completed, I will mail the item out via registered mail to your address. Registered postage is on the house so 100% of your donation goes direct to SCWO-Star Shelter!
How can your donation help?
- The money can be used for day-to-day operation at the Star Shelter. The shelter provides a temporary refuge to women and their children from family violence and operating costs is about $250,000 annually .
- The donation will be used as part of a Rebuilding Programme – a financial assistance scheme that provides a one-time financial aid to assist victims to pay for transport expenses while looking for employment as well as a no interest home loan, which enables victims to setup a new home.
SCWO-Star Shelter also provides trauma/crisis counseling and legal counseling for the residents. Even after the residents move out of the shelter, the organisation will still provide after-care support by staying in touch with them and making regular house visits.
Keep a look out for my blog post on the first Auction on Monday, 12pm! You can place your bids by commenting on that post! 🙂
