Sometime, in 2012, we should do something simple and yet feasible for sme charities in Singapore. In the past, some members have embarked on visits to homes and providing some food and entertainment for the day. In some cases, some monies were collected and given to the selected charity.
I had the privilege to spend some time discussing with some SilverHairs other options or ways of giving monies to charities. This good deed may be debatable to some people, for various reasons.
Many members are keen to support charities, but this act has to be sincere, genuine and support a good cause. i hope I am not starting a debate on the why’s of giving to charities.
The discussion caught my attention, and I was hoping to find some way of giving to charities. This is a big potluck event where participants contribute a potluck item to the event. Those wshing to try and buy an item pay, say 2 dollars, for one item. Let’s say we open this event to the public.
All proceeds, we donate to charities. And, if the idea is good, we do this event once ayear. We may even combine this event with another event.
Let’s take some time to discuss. What do you think? Please do not trash any ideas or suggestions.
