The Giving Family Festival is an annual event from Touch Community.

To quote from them “At the Festival, you can play together with your loved ones and develop intergenerational bonds – all while giving back to society!”

Last weekend, we joined many other families to support Touch Community’s initiative.

Visitors can buy coupons for the carnival games, food and experiences, and the proceeds then benefits Touch Community’s beneficiaries.

There was  a Carnival-like festival at Singapore Sports Hub.

 

For our kids, it was an opportunity to know more about how Touch Community is running their outreach campaign and initiatives.

Ok, we admit kids enjoyed the carnival games too.

Panels and booths help raise awareness about Touch Community organisation and how they help the community.

Earlier on Sat, a special run “Run & Raisin” had kids participating to help raise more money and awareness. Many families are struggling to make ends meet, and every little drop of donation helps.

Be it a simple meal, academic coaching or other development aids. kids should not be disadvantaged by their family background.

Nerf Gun is a regular event at The Giving Family Festival, so glad that we finally book a slot. Kids, Nerf guns, and we need to take down the enemies.

Nerf War is always exciting and fun. Tiring too.

The downcast sky threaten to derail the event, but fortunately only drizzle a little bit. This allow more families to enjoy the day out.

What would your kids love? Merry-Go-Round, Pirate Boat, or train ride?

There was something for kids of all ages and families.

Bouncing castle would be “happening” for the little ones.

Bouncing castle is too childish for our kids, but they are into arcade activities.

 

We were not very lucky in 2017, but we scored more in 2018.
We gave out two “pets” to fellow visitors, always good to share more Happiness around 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

There are live band performances and even movie screening too.

Food and drinks are indoor inside Kallang Wave. While we enjoyed our snacks, we can watch folks rock-climbing and enjoy the aircon.

Do pop by our 2017 The Giving Family Festival here.

Thank you Touch for the invitation. Through constant engagements, I hope my kids and more families will appreciate the need to give back to society.

Perhaps they will help me to deliver food to needy families one day.

Do follow Touch for more community outreach campaigns and volunteering opportunities.
