weekly shopping at the supermarket or going for a stroll in Orchard Road while keeping an eye at the toy stores (without your kids noticing it!), it is very obvious that Christmas is back in town!
Singapore is well known for being the perfect place to go shopping, and especially during the holiday season. However, one must not forget that Christmas is also a time for giving, sharing and (ideally) helping the less fortunate. Now, you are probably starting to experience a
subtle feeling of guilt. The truth is that many of us have thought about volunteering at Christmas, but few have actually done it. But, not to worry, this is your chance to redeem yourself by engaging in one of the many volunteer activities that take place in Singapore during this time of the year.
A good start is probably checking out the latest ads advertised on our website. There you will have direct access to vacancies such as ‘The Christmas Kettle Appeal’, a unique fund-raising project that enables The Salvation Army to continue its work with the needy and underprivileged. Milaap is also looking for volunteers starting December 15th, should you fancy to do some work as a writer or editor and contribute to a tangible change for communities in rural India.
But remember, volunteers are needed all-year-round! For 2014 we have one main wish: to be able to attract all the talented people living in Singapore who have a bit of time to spare helping those who need it most. Are you one of them? Contact us!
