What we're about

Be Kind SG is a ground-up movement (GUM) that aims to promote Kindness and increase volunteerism through various Micro-volunteering opportunities. We organize volunteering activities to outreach to various ‘invisible’ communities such as adults and seniors with intellectual disabilities, and children and youths with special needs.

With the onslaught of COVID-19 and the various physical distancing measures in place, our communities at Moral Welfare Home and the THK Home for Disabled @ Sembawang, are sorely in need of activities to keep their spirits up while volunteers are not allowed. Customized colouring sheets provide much needed stimulation as well as a personal touch for our friends at the various residential homes. Receiving Christmas cards will provide the festive cheer to lift their spirits! For DECEMBER 2020, we will be creating CHRISTMAS themed cards AND colouring sheets! All you need is a willing heart, some art supplies, and A4-sized papers! Not an artistic person? Fret not, you can Google for inspiration or browse to our photo references of past drawings. How to get started: 1) Complete this form ( https://tinyurl.com/ChristmasCardsandSheets ) and pledge the number of Christmas cards AND/OR colouring sheets you can do! No need to fret about fulfilling a quota, just do what you can. Every little bit helps! 2) Create your Christmas cards AND/OR colouring sheets! Remember to sign off on the back so our friends would know this came from a human being who have them in mind! 3) Mail your cards/drawings to the following volunteer's address to ensure they reach by 18 DECEMBER 2020!
