Give a Gift Charity Auction   here comes guilt free shopping!

Part of the Let’s Care and Celebrate! campaign, the Give a Gift Charity Auction is an opportunity to touch many lives through shopping!

There will be a series of fashion items available for bidding over a 2-week period. If you win the auction, you will make payment by donating the amount to SCWO (via DBS bank transfer or cheque payment) and I will mail the item to you! Kindly note that only Singaporeans or those residing in Singapore can take part.

I am really fortunate to have the kind support of several popular bloggers! They readily agreed to contribute to this event when I approached them! So, be prepared to see contributions from:

The auction will commence in 2 batches. The first batch of items will start to accept bids from 22nd March (Monday) at 12pm sharp, and this auction will end on 28th March (Sunday) 12pm. Similarly, the next auction starts on 29th March 12pm and ends on 4th April noon.

All winners will be notified via email and “payment” will be made by donating the amount directly to SCWO. Once I have verified that the donation is completed, I will mail the item out via registered mail to your address. Registered postage is on the house so 100% of your donation goes direct to SCWO-Star Shelter!

How can your donation help?

  • The money can be used for day-to-day operation at the Star Shelter. The shelter provides a temporary refuge to women and their children from family violence and operating costs is about $250,000 annually .
  • The donation will be used as part of a Rebuilding Programme – a financial assistance scheme that provides a one-time financial aid to assist victims to pay for transport expenses while looking for employment as well as a no interest home loan, which enables victims to setup a new home.

SCWO-Star Shelter also provides trauma/crisis counseling and legal counseling for the residents. Even after the residents move out of the shelter, the organisation will still provide after-care support by staying in touch with them and making regular house visits.

Keep a look out for my blog post on the first Auction on Monday, 12pm! You can place your bids by commenting on that post! Give a Gift Charity Auction   here comes guilt free shopping!

Lets Care and Celebrate #1: Makeup Workshop for Star ShelterI have updated more information on Let’s Care and Celebrate! campaign page – http://msglitzy.com/care. Do check it out!

When I met with the manager of Star Shelter to understand the charity better, one suggestion that came out of the meeting was to interact with the beneficiaries through workshops or support group. A makeup workshop would be apt because I was advised that the ladies could learn how to better present themselves, not just for day-to-day activities, but also for job interviews.

And I figured that since this is blog campaign, I should involve more bloggers in the project! So I invited Wiwit, who is a popular makeup blogger and a professional makeup artist to impart some tips to the ladies from the Shelter. I was really overjoyed when she readily agreed!

I had to remove my makeup because I was Wiwit’s model for the day!

In order to protect the identities of the residents and beneficiaries, we were warned not to take or show any photos of the participants of the workshop. This is the reason why you will only be seeing photos of Wiwit and me in this entire entry.

The 11 participants at the workshop each received a goodie bag with 8 items from Silkygirl. The reason why I approached Silkygirl was because they are easily available islandwide and are very affordable. This is certainly a good brand to introduce some of the ladies to the world of makeup. Once again, I really appreciate Silkygirl for their kind sponsorship and being so understanding towards everything.

Wiwit started off with the Day makeup, where she used earthy tones on the right side of my face. She advised that we refrain from using shimmery eyeshadow for the day as it would look very oily and messy.I love the nude lippy for the Day makeup! For Night makeup, she did smoky eyes.

The participants were given time to do some hands-on with the items they received from the goodie bag. Wiwit provided one-on-one advice as they were working on their makeup.

The outcome – a Day cum Night makeup. I can’t go out like this! I love the pink lip colour – which is Silkygirl Moisture Rich Lip Colour (06 Gorgeous).

This was my first time interacting with the residents and the first-hand experience gave me a way better understanding of the cause – although I had spoken to the charity and read up on it prior to the workshop. I noticed that majority of the participants were reserved and shy, although most of them seemed relatively interested in the workshop. It wasn’t easy to get them to warm-up with us – which reminded me the importance of the counseling and rebuilding programmes that Star Shelter offers to the ladies.

Domestic violence is a traumatic experience.  And according to global studies, up to six out of every ten women experience physical and/or sexual violence in their lifetime. On this note, I think we should really spare some care and concern to our friends so that they will have someone to confide with should they meet with such situations.

Last but not least, a big THANK-YOU to Wiwit and Miss Jazzy for helping out in this workshop. I definitely couldn’t have pulled this off without them!
