Hello you guys! If you have been following me closely on my Facebook, tumblr, or Instagram, you would have heard about #OmForAGoldenHome, a yoga charity fundraiser that I am organizing together with The Yoga Co!
What is #OmForAGoldenHome?
This yoga charity fundraiser is a personal project that I have pledged under this campaign For A Golden Home. The campaign aims to raise funds for Project HomeWorks by Habitat for Humanity Singapore, by empowering young individuals with a platform for them to raise funds for a common cause. It provides the opportunity for Singapore youths to create their own project, movement, or initiative in a way that they are most familiar with. It can be baking, arts and crafts, photography, or in my case, yoga! Not only is it for a really meaningful cause, it also seeks to show how easy it is to make a positive difference to everyone around us, especially to the needy community in our society.
What is Project HomeWorks then?
Project HomeWorks is an ongoing project by Habitat for Humanity Singapore, that seeks to restore basic living conditions of the elderly living alone in Singapore. Many of these elderly live in squalid conditions with dirt, grime, old furniture that not only pose safety but also severe health hazards. The proceeds from #OmForAGoldenHome will go to purchasing cleaning items, new furniture, paint, and so on, in order to help restore basic living standards for these elderly.
How can I help?
You can donate to the cause, pledge your own project, or even take part in any of the pledged events! They are all listed here.
What is happening on 14 March then?
#OmForAGoldenHome is going to be a day packed full of yoga classes, wonderful baked goods, juices, and yoga apparel. Proceeds from the yoga classes, baked goods, and juices will go to Project HomeWorks.
