Comchest Fudai Packing, sending our best wishes

Fu Dai packing, bringing warmth to others

Comchest Fudai Packing, checkout our busy kids in action.
It was me and the boys last year but 2017 (link) is whole family affair 🙂

Comchest Fudai packing is a meaningful project. Besides charity and giving back to community, Fudai(福袋) packing activity offers a good bonding opportunity for families 🙂

Kids understand the importance of teamwork, as everyone need to chip in to get the work done. (Video Link)

At expo, volunteers gathered, we got thousands of bags to pack and deliver.

Everone man a different section, be it wrapping, conveyor belt (packing) and even garang-guni (flattening the cardboards :p ).

I did not count the number of bags, but I know we work FAST!

The bags are about 8 kg each, kudos to the little ones for dragging the bags into our car.

Final mile, delivering Fudai 福袋 to the less fortunate. We hope each bag will bring some smiles and warmth to families 🙂
I hope these positive actions will also let kids pick up empathy.

Good work kids! Proud of you guys 🙂

Thank you to ComChest for the meaningful invite, we hope to repeat this activity again. Click to read our 2016 Feb experience.

Cherished moments by Singpost

Singpost’s Like it Forward is an app created by Singpost, to celebrate World Post Day with Jamiyah Children’s Home.

To encourage Singaporeans to bring smiles to children and rediscover the joys of gifting, SingPost has organised a campaign where users can ‘like’ and ‘share’ doodles drawn by 22 children from Jamiyah Home.

If you have noticed, the kids have drawn their own wishlist 🙂

Singpost would like to invite you to like the children’s drawings at https://www.facebook.com/CherishedMomentsBySingPost/

Four simple steps:

1. VISIT the ‘GALLERY’ (You need to like Singpost’s Fanpage first)
2. READ the story behind each child and the gift they wish for
3. LIKE to make a child’s wish come true
4. SMILE because you’re one step closer to making a child really happy!

Daddy would like to share a story from one of the children.

The more Likes you give, the child will have a higher chance of getting his or her gift.
Be generous, LIKE away, help Singpost to make one more child Smile 🙂

Fostering, because Not every child enjoys the warmth and protection of a family

SengkangBabies is a parenting blog and we are very proud of our family. Through our blog and photos, it is not difficult to tell that we have a tight-knitted family.

However, we always highlight to our kids that not every child is fortunate enough to enjoy family warmth. Some kids might have abusive parents, or their guardians might be sick, or lack the financial capability to care for them.

MSF (Ministry of Social and Family Development) has a Fostering Scheme to help these unfortunate kids. More information is available at this link.

MSF’s video showcase a few foster families’ experiences. We can witness how these fantastic families treat their foster kids like their own children, and provides them with unconditional Family Love.

~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~
In summary, the criteria to be foster parents are :

– must be residents of Singapore;
– preferably married;
– at least 25 years old; and
– must be medically fit to care for children

* Training and a monthly allowance will be available to help potential foster families.

~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~

In case you are interested to find out more, there is a Fostering roadshow from 19-21Apr.

We can definitely do more to help the less fortunate. Do help MSF to share their fostering programme with more big-hearted friends and families :
