Blossom was approached by CartMomo of MDEAS Pte Ltd and ‘Laksania’ of Spice Connection Pte Ltd, to support them in a charitable cause by helping them sell Chinese New Year cookies for a group of patients from the Institution of Mental Health (IMH).
Like many of us who are looking forward for a new beginning in 2010, there is this group of IMH patients who are optimistic and are working very hard for a better future. Despite suffering from mental illness, they are talented in baking delicious cookies!
Thanks to Laksania, a Social Enterprise of Spice Connection Pte Ltd, they initiated a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Project that established a Central Kitchen within IMH to provide job opportunities and hope to the IMH patients. With the goal to sell a thousand bottles of Laksania cookies to enterprises and institutions, CartMomo initiated the “A Thousand Hearts & Names” campaign on 1 Jan 2010.
Blossom Edugroup did not hesitate to lend a hand to this charitable cause and was delighted to be part of this meaningful project, as it gave the staff and our families the opportunity to impart the value of compassion in our children.
With the generosity and tremendous support from all of our staff, children and parents we helped to ring in a total sale of more than $1,000 from all 4 Blossom branches.
No matter the amount raised, Blossom Edugroup is indeed privileged to be given the opportunity to be part of this worthy cause and learn about compassion, how we can help those in need, with a small but significant step.
We thank our parents for their generous orders and feel very good in making a difference in someone else’s life.
