A week of giving
Singapore’s Giving Week returns for the fifth year to encourage and celebrate individuals, organisations and leaders to share their time, talent, treasure and voice for a good cause.
From December 1 to 7, 2019, the national giving movement Giving Week returns for its fifth annual edition with carnivals, exclusive promotions and activities set to take place across the island. Initiated by the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC), Giving Week aspires to celebrate Singapore’s caring spirit and encourage brands, non-profits organisations (NPOs) and people to share their time, treasure, talent and voice to support a wide variety of causes through The Good Hubs, The Good Life, and #TheGivingWeekChallenge.
- The Good Hubs – Free to members of the public, The Good Hubs are an amalgamation of NPOs, social enterprises and businesses coming together to advocate a cause through carnivals, donation or collection drives, as well as platforms for their beneficiaries to showcase their abilities and sell their merchandise. Dotting the island across various locations, you can show your support by heading down to any of The Good Hubs at Marina One, Ng Teng Fong General Hospital, The Fullerton Hotel, and the Volvo showroom.
- The Good Life – This year, Giving Week has the support of over 70 lifestyle, retail and F&B brands, including Carousell, Courts, d’Good Café, FairPrice, Shopee, The Grand Hyatt, Volvo and more, as part of The Good Life. By incorporating a giving element to their products and services through exclusive Giving Week promotions, not only does the public get to enjoy these special offers, everyone can contribute towards the proceeds that will go to selected charities or causes over the Giving Week period and beyond.
- #TheGivingWeekChallenge – Driven by social media, individuals and organisations can take up the week-long challenge and even create their own to share their giving efforts and spur others to pay it forward. Simply post and tag your act of giving with the hashtag #TheGivingWeekChallenge, and you might find your little act multiplied through the Giving Week social media channels.
