Gumtree’s The Giving Tree project

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.
