Donations where?

Postby CrAzY_PaT » Mon, 20 Dec 2004 4:14 pm

I have a friend who has on hand some Teddy-bears, children toys, games etc... where can we donate/distribute such items in Singapore? Can we donate directly to the children (rather than to Charities)?

From all the ads around.. seems that Sg-Charities are 'rich' already! =)

Thanks beforehand for your replies.

Of course they take in only working items! Even the rag-and-bone man won't take spoilt items.

Get the list of orphanages in Singapore and send to them. Also Singapore Children's Society, Red Cross, Look up East timor on the internet and send to organisations doing work for them. Singapore International Foundation. Lots of orphanages in Malaysia need toys. Can you give me your email add, i know one children's home in Malaysia which could do with them.

Yep, Singapore charities ARE rich already and the children are unappreciative, they only want brand new and expensive stuff.

What I meant was where to give directly to the children (if in Sg).

The East Timor thing is interesting.
