Volunteering in Cancer Children’s Camp
Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF) is a non-profit organization and aims to improve the quality of life of children and their families impacted with cancer through enhancing their emotional, social and medical well-being. On 18 Mar 2017, Edwards’ employees volunteered their time to help CCF for the fashion show finale “Shine like Stars” to celebrate the end of their 3 days children camp.
Go Red for Women
This annual event is a partnership between Edwards and Singapore Heart Foundation to raise awareness on heart health and support women fighting against heart diseases and stroke. Funds raised in the event are used in the support of medical research and execute community programs to raise awareness of heart diseases in women.
The Special Olympics Charity Bowl
This meaningful event was a team up between Edwards and Special Olympics athletes as part of the Singapore Unified Sports to compete in this charity bowl event. It provided an opportunity for the special athletes with intellectual disabilities to develop physical fitness and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families and the community. Not only did it enabled us to play a part in the society by helping and partnering those with special needs, Edwards also made a donation to the community.
Collaboration with Singapore Association of Visually Handicapped (SAVH)
In the spirit of contribution to the needy in the society, Edwards partnered with Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped (SAVH) to help visually impaired acquired new skills by engaging them to provide head and shoulder massage for our employees. Not only does it builds confidence to the visually impaired, it also allow them to gain self-reliance to cope with the integration into society.
