Our Parenting World team playing the word puzzle challenge to win prizes for the beneficiaries.
It is a word puzzle challenge (similar to Wheel of Fortune) where we would get to participate and win prizes. All prizes won will be donated to beneficiaries such as the Society for the Physically Disabled (SPD) and the Mobility Aids Servicing and Training Centre (MASTC) under Kampung Senang Charity & Education Foundation.
We participated in 2 charity rounds and the total amount raised during the charity rounds will be matched dollar for dollar by Frasers Centrepoint Malls and donated to SPD and MASTC. We are happy to be able to participate and do our part in this meaningful cause!
In addition, shoppers can look out for the following activities at Frasers Centrepoint Malls:
Frasers Centrepoint Malls creates new ways for the community to do their part for those in need and the physically challenged these June holidays.
Through technology and interactive workshops, Frasers Centrepoint Malls aims to raise public awareness about the mobility challenges and frustrations the less fortunate such as the elderly and disabled face on a daily basis. The initiative also seeks to empower commuters and shoppers to give back to the less physically able by booking a ride through Grab for a good cause or learning the art of wheelchair refurbishment.
Stephanie Ho, General Manager, Retail Properties added that “In this day and age where we are constantly on-the-go, mobility is easy and going places is achieved with just a touch of a button. We wish to help persons with disabilities spread the word by empowering our community to make a difference with a single ride, at a single touch of a button. We hope to bring greater awareness that the physically challenged, especially the elderly, struggle with being less mobile, while also showing the community affordable mobility options available to them.”
Grab a Goodwill Ride to Frasers
Starting 27 May, commuters across the island can do their part for the physically challenged by booking a ride through Grab to any of the 12 malls under Frasers Centrepoint Malls using the promo code “FrasersGoodwill”. Commuters will enjoy $2 off their fare. In return for their support, Frasers Centrepoint Malls will donate the total value of all supported rides to beneficiaries of the Society for the Physically Disabled (SPD) and the Mobility Aids Servicing and Training Centre (MASTC), a project of Kampung Senang Charity & Education Foundation.
Book a ride through Grab with the code “FrasersGoodWill” to any Frasers Centrepoint Mall and the total value of all supported rides will be donated to SPD and MASTC.
Making Old Wheels New Again
In an effort to build a more inclusive and well-equipped community, shoppers can pick up the art of mobility aids repair and maintenance at training sessions conducted by MASTC. The training sessions are part of Frasers Centrepoint Malls’ effort to raise awareness about the plight of the less fortunate who are unable to purchase new mobility devices and often have trouble sourcing for second hand equipment that are in good working condition.
“We want to proactively work with like-minded partners such as Frasers Centrepoint Malls to help the public understand that mobility aids such as wheelchairs can greatly improve the quality of life for the physically challenged. Extending the lifespan of wheelchairs, which many of the less fortunate cannot afford, also reduces the purchase of new equipment and encourages the recycling of old equipment, ultimately saving tremendous amount of resources and minimising waste,” said Kelvin Chan, Senior Manager of MASTC.
MASTC will be holding roadshows at Waterway Point (28 May), Causeway Point (10 June), and YewTee Point (18 June) to inspire the public to volunteer, acquire used or unwanted mobility aids, and train caregivers in maintaining wheelchairs for their loved ones. Each trainee will also receive a tool kit to bring home.
