[ Media Invite ]
Organised by TOUCH, The Giving Family Festival aimed to connect community and give back to society.
Over the weekend, Touch’s The Giving Family Carnival has a series of activities to engage families. Families can buy vouchers at the carnival, to exchange for games, food or merchandise. Sales proceeds would be channeled to Touch’s beneficiaries.
At the exit of Stadium MRT, visitors were invited to print their palm on a wall. For every palm counted, NTUC Fairprice Foundation will donate $5.
We sponsored three colourful palms :p
Coupon and activities.
The arena was filled with parents and kiddos. There was something for everyone.
Each coupon booklet is worth $50 and we soon realise that it is not a lot. The games and merchandise are not cheap, but we are spending for charity.
Magician on stage too.

We are at Touch's #TheGivingFamilyFestival , carnival to celebrate the community. Your coupons will go towards beneficiaries. $6 cute balloons but she say 'Don't want' 😆#growUpLiao Do pop by SportsHub today and Sunday #sengkangBabies @touchcommunityservices (go 2nd floor got nerf challenge,$20 for team of 4)
Kids spend most of their times at the carnival ‘tikum” stalls. We only scored a duck after many tries.
To celebrate one inclusive community, I always encourage the kids to volunteer and give back to society. i hope they will have a heart for the less fortunate.
Kids might only know about the carnival fun, but I told them that the vouchers and sales will go to help the less fortunate.
When we help others, we are helping ourselves too by enriching our character and improving our empathy. We should help if we have the means (time, labour or donations).
There were some interesting cakes and terrarium workshops too.
The best activities for us were the drum walker and bumper car.
Long queue for nerf gun, otherwise it should be Fun!
Thank you Touch and the Giving Family Festival for the meaningful and fun invitation. I hope my kids appreciate the need for us to contribute back to society.
