2010 has been an unbelievable year and a huge part of the reason was because of this blog and your support.
I would like to thank all of you for visiting MsGlitzy.com! Merry Christmas and have a fantabulous 2011… I’m sure that 2011 will be a good year. I am feeling all psyched up and positive about it already!
(Hint hint: There will be a New Year Fukubukuro Giveaway coming soon…)
The band has kindly written and produced this song, “Love Thy Neighbour” for the campaign. The song urges us to spare a thought for everyone around us and be ready to give a helping hand. I also approached the very talented Noemi, who kindly agreed to draw for the music video. A blog artist based in Indonesia, she is really really talented and I hope more and more people will get to know her unique water-colour artworks.
Back to the music video, the key objective of SCWO-Star Shelter is to help women who have been abused. These women are usually referred by the Family Court, The Family Service Centres, the Police, hospitals and crisis helplines. Noemi illustrated various scenarios of abuse, such as a girl who was abused at home and silently crying for help. In addition, there was also a case of very bad verbal abuse, a terrified child and a broken-hearted girl who was abused by her boyfriend.
The reality is, some victims will hesitate to get help. Thus, it is important for us to show care and support to our close friends and if anyone of them shows symptoms of abuse, we are there for them. A study has shown that a growing number of educated women experience domestic violence, so there are reasons to believe that domestic abuse is more prevalent than we think.
Some helplines that we can call:
PAVe: 6555 0390
Samaritans of Singapore: 1800-221 4444
AWARE helpline: 1800-774 5935
Care Corner Counselling Centre: 1800-353 5800
The band came up with the jazzy and catchy tune, along with the exaggerated lyrics and Miss Jazzy was the voice behind the jingle! Thanks so much for your help and hard work, OaC! The band is available for public/wedding performances. Just drop them a note!
And for the 5th episode of Glitz Channel, it is a consolidation of bloopers accumulated from previous episodes. Just sit back and laugh!
