UPDATE JAN 2023
With your help, we have raised S$4,636 in total! ❤️
To the kind souls who participated in our Make-A-Wish fundraising campaign, we would like to thank YOU for making a differene -- you're the real MVP!
In collaboration with Make-A-Wish Singapore, The Social Space has launched a fundraising campaign to raise awareness for this amazing cause and encourage donations to make more wishes come true.
From 1st December 2022 till 8th January 2023, The Social Space will pledge $1 from every cup of coffee sold at our cafes towards our adopted wish.
We will also feature an eco-friendly wooden 'Tree of Wishes' at both our outlets to encourage our customers to be a part of our fundraising efforts by scanning the hanging QR codes to make a donation. As a reward, customers who donate S$50 or more will get a FREE SPECIALTY COFFEE* on us too! (Just show the confirmation e-mail to the cashier!)
Every year, around 150 children in Singapore are diagnosed with critical illness and since 2002, Make-A-Wish Singapore has granted close to 1,800 wishes.
A wish fulfilled grants children the emotional and psychological benefits they need to fight their critical illness. For some, it is often the turning point in their treatment as it can greatly improve their quality of life and produce better health outcomes. Majority of Make-A-Wish children go on to learn to cope with and even beat their illnesses.
The Social Space truly believes in the power of a wish to transform lives, and we’re honoured to play a small part in inspiring hope and delivering strength to the wish children.
WHAT IS "THE WISH EFFECT"?
Here are a few of our favourite stories!
Two years ago, Sunny was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. He had to miss school for one year to go for his treatments. Sunny kept busy and passed his time during his long stay at the hospital with his favourite PlayStation 4 game – LEGO Marvel Avengers. It was the topic which drew a positive response and smile as it acted as an anchor through Sunny’s health obstacles.
