The COVID-19 pandemic has affected Singaporeans in many different ways and while WeCare Pack was founded on the purpose of providing a meaningful way to thank those braving the frontlines or answering to their call of duty, Social Good 55 (SG55), is WeCare Pack's way of giving back to the society.
WeCare Pack has given companies, individuals and colleagues a means to say thank you to their employees, friends, family members, team mates and co-workers. Over the past couple of months, our care pack has provided folks with something really tangible in this age of social distancing and remote working.
And in the same vein, our team had wanted to bring the same tangible love to those who may need more help than others during this unprecedented crisis. Hence, we decided on this initiative: Social Good 55 (SG55)
What is Social Good 55?
Since the coming 9th August 2020 will be Singapore's 55th birthday, we thought what better way is there to celebrate our National Day SG55 than to benefit 55 x non-profit / charity organisations in a thoughtful way. Well, it's time to spread love in a totally meaningful method as we hope to make donations in kind to these organisations, donating items that they really need. The 55 organisations will be selected by our team and will cover a wide spectrum of charity causes. While this remains a challenge for us, we are totally game and we aim to complete this feat by 9th August.
How do we intend to achieve Social Good 55?
WeCare Pack will be dedicating 2% of revenue from our corporate/bulk orders to purchasing specific items from these 55 organisations' wish lists. These donation-in-kind will also be made in our client's name. Of course, our clients will also be welcomed to add-on to the donation by purchasing items specifically to the beneficiaries' needs. We can all use a little help.
For online orders, we will donate 1 x reusable fabric face mask to the Singapore Red Cross, for every purchase of our WeCare Pack (Heroes Collection) (this includes the Protector, the StayHome Worker, the upcoming Happy Employee and of course, the Hoarder) The donation of these reusable masks will collectively be made by 2nd week of August 2020.
Let us know if you wish to help or have any ideas for collaboration. We will be glad to have a word. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
