Charity Work

Today I managed to donate some of my used clothings to Cambodia Orphanage. The lady in charge came to my house to collect the clothings. I am happy to be able to help people in one way or another. Hope to do more charity work in the days to come.

The lady in charge managed to contact me through the Pass It On website where I posted the items I wanted to donate.

Pass-It-On is a non-profit project started by Central Singapore CDC and managed by The Helping Hand. The project seeks to provide a meaningful way to distribute unwanted, albeit useful items to benefit the needy (home appliances, home furniture, medical aids, mobility aids, learning aids & etc). With Pass-It-On , your used item can be given a new lease of life, and to better the life of needy!

Pass-It-On connects General Public to the needy via Voluntary Welfare Organizations (VWOs). Pass-It-On provides a web platform by channelling the donated items to the needy under the VWOs (for examples, Family Service Centres and Senior Citizen Centres) care. Anyone, within Singapore, can donate, as long as the items are useful and of good working condition.

VWOs registered with Pass-It-On can request items on “Wish List”. General Public can fulfil needy wishes by donating the requested items. Alternatively, General Public can post them on Pass-It-On website. The donated items will be made available to all registered VWOs, who shall reserve the donated items if find suitable for their needy clients. VWOs shall arrange collection of the donated items directly with the donor.
