Impacting Lives this Christmas!
In an effort to make a difference and impact lives, Love Project Outreach is organising the ‘Quack Quack’ event this December where we will be inviting 40 elderly from the Lions Befrienders’ Home (http://www.lionsbefrienders.org.sg/) to partake in a half day’s activity encompassing a duck & river cruise tour around Singapore vibrant city to enjoy the Christmas atmosphere, followed by a cosy dinner at The Red House Restaurant (小红楼) along Prinsep Street.
How often do these elderly get to visit the ‘outside world’; enjoy the simple pleasures or explore the city life? During the Christmas seasons, while many of us enjoy the festivities by shopping for gifts and celebrating the special event with their loved ones, many elderly are cooped up in the Elderly Homes. :( Some of these elderly are abandoned by family members, are frail and they do not have the luxury like us to celebrate this special occasion with the presence of their loved ones.
In conjunction to the Christmas seasons, where streets are beautifully lighted and decorated with Christmas ornaments, Love Project Outreach wants to bring love back to the society, engage the elderly to see the outdoors, and take this opportunity to foster bonding with them.
How can you help?
To organise this event, we are looking to raise a minimum sum of S$6000 (approximate) to support the following areas:
Duck and hippo river cruise: S$1,200
Red Packets & Goodies for the elderly: S$3,000
Others/ miscellaneous: S$200
As there may be elderly who are immobile or may find difficulty participating in the ‘Quack Quack’ event (e.g. getting up/ down buses etc.), we are looking to organise a separate indoor event where a mini high tea buffet would be catered, along with some simple games to engage this group of elderly.
Henceforth, any additional funds will be disseminated to the following areas:
1. Indoor high tea buffet for immobile elderly who are unable to join the Duck Tour & Hippo River Cruise
2. Sponsorship of medical equipment, diapers, household appliances etc.
Please help us!
We seek your kind donations to help support our above activities. It is through your generous donations and support in the past years that we are able to organise meaningful activities like this; creating wonderful experiences for our elderly friends and volunteers.
If you like to volunteer for the event, please do not hesitate to let us know too!

In her email, her bank details will be provided to you to facilitate the dissemination of funds for the event. All funds expenditure will be disclosed to our donors at the end of the event.
