Bringing The Christmas Cheer To Abandoned Animals
Lim Fang Hui , Cluster Leader of the Hospitality, Lifestyle and Retail Cluster - Talent Development Programme
This Christmas season, SIM GE Career Development Office’s Hospitality, Lifestyle and Retail (HLR) Cluster and Career Chapter is collaborating with Shangri-la Hotel, Singapore for a charity event themed ‘Rediscover Giving’.
Each Christmas tree at the hotel supports a charity chosen by a participating school. SIM GE is honoured to support animal welfare organisation- Causes for Animals Singapore. (CAS).
CAS is a registered charity and Institution of a Public Character (IPC) with a mission to save the lives of homeless and unwanted animals in Singapore. With our focus on supporting no-kill animal shelters, we have found that apart from being well-structured, CAS's operations and programmes are consistent in doing a great job with the limited resources they have. It is our privilege to have them as our beneficiary for this meaningful Christmas event.
This event would not be a success without the help of our student volunteers from the Career Chapter and interns from the Talent Development Programme.
Together as a team, we took approximately three months to design, coordinate and purchase the items required to set up a tree that best represented our charity. We also decided on doing personal handicraft work, creating animal wish lists and using items that can be donated to the Cause after the event.
Through this concept, we hope that the hotel guests will be moved by our sincerity and in turn donate to the charity that we are supporting. Although there were challenging and late evenings spent brainstorming and personally hand-making the display items, the beautiful creations represented the culmination of each student’s sweat and time.
If you would like to make a difference, please feel free to come by to Shangri-la Hotel, Singapore from now till 29 December and share some love with these furry friends by donating in the donation box placed by tree! (100% of the proceeds will be going to CAS)
