Bare Your Sole 2014 saw 5,000 participants walk barefoot to help raise close to S$300,000 in the fight against homelessness and poverty.
Funds raised will benefit Habitat for Humanity Singapore’s local programme Project HomeWorks, an initiative designed to improve the living conditions of the elderly, the sick and the physically-challenged living in one-room flats across Singapore. This includes mobilising volunteers to do proper clean-ups, conduct repair and paint works, and replace bedbug-infested furniture.
The barefoot charity walk was held at the iconic Gardens by the Bay East, where participants from all walks of life, had the choice to trek along a 2.5km or 5km scenic route to show their support for the cause. Making up the 5,000 participants were over 50 migrant workers from Kim Seng Heng Engineering Construction Pte Ltd, some of which were inspired by personal events back home and wanted to do their part for the Singaporean community.
Families and friends enjoyed the day out at Bare Your Sole with a variety of live performances by local acts, and dug into a wide selection of food and beverage. Entertainment such as face painting and balloon sculpting kiosks, along with cotton candy and popcorn stands were also made available for the young and the young at heart.
The Giving Tree is a corporate social responsibility project by Gumtree. The project aim to connect with the disadvantaged children in Children’s Aid Society’s Melrose Home and make a little difference in the lives of these children. Gumtree hope to encourage the spirit of volunteering and giving back to the society through The Giving Tree project.
Prior to visiting Melrose Home, Gumtree gave every blogger $150 credit to purchase some gifts for the children at Gumtree Singapore website. The shopping experience on Gumtree is a breeze. According to Gumtree, there are about 170,000 live listings on the site and over 6000 new listings per day. That’s a lot of things. Luckily the site is well categorised and the search filter makes it easy to find the items I need for the gifts.
Unfortunately I couldn’t go to Melrose Home that day. But the other bloggers had lots of fun. Check out the blog entry by Smith Leong, Jiahui and Mrs Kam.
