The new year of 2013 has just started and AspirantSG is officially 1 year old. I enjoyed writing and sharing mouthwatering cuisines, travel adventures as well as little titbits on social media for discussion. Attending events and getting to know fellow bloggers was a lovely experience, particularly when they blossom into friendship along the way.
While I was deliberating on my blog direction for the new year, I attended a home birthday party of a really unique nature. The birthday boy wanted no presents but instead monetary donations to support a social project that purchase food & living necessities for the underprivileged elderlies. Other than raising funds, he walks the talk by physically taking part in the distributions. I was really touched by his commitment and actions towards such a meaningful cause.
Moving forward in 2013, AspirantSG Cares is our blog social responsibility (BSR) initiative to take on a proactive role to assist individuals or groups who are driving social projects for the underprivileged in Singapore to:
1. Gain more awareness for their cause.
2. Create pre-publicity for charitable events.
3. Physically participating in meaningful on-ground events.
4. Event post publicity coverage
If you have a meaningful social project on hand which you will like our participation, please email in with full information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kindly note that:
1. The subject has to be a registered and approved social project for the underprivileged in Singapore.
2. We are not full time bloggers hence participation is only possible on weekday evenings or weekends (preferred).
3. Please give ample time notice on events and publicity timeline.
4. AspirantSG has the final participation rights.
