In light of my travel schedule and work, I have made the decision to postpone this year’s “Let’s Care and Celebrate” to the later part of 2011. I really want to make this year’s project a good one, even better than last year’s, and I would like to continue to help women and girls around us. If you are interested to collaborate or contribute to this project, please feel free to drop me an email.
Meanwhile, Wiwit, who helped me with the makeup workshop for Star Shelter last year, is collecting clothes and beauty products for SCWO. If you are keen to take part, please contact her before 16 March 2011.
On another note, the news and pictures of Japan Earthquake have been devastating. If you would like to help, please make a donation to the American Red Cross. There are many other outlets on the web or Facebook soliciting for donations, and I am really not sure which are the legitimate ones. I believe money is the most practical source of help at this point, you can also keep a look out at the Singapore Red Cross website for more news or initiatives.
(Updated with initiatives from Singapore Red Cross to aid Japan. Below is an excerpt from The Straits Times 15th March 2011)
THE Singapore Red Cross Society has begun accepting donations for victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, and will do so until April 13. Money collected for the Japan Disaster 2011 fund will go towards the relief, rehabilitation and reconstruction efforts for survivors.
