Give SG – Social movement for good

15961596a1

GIVE (www.give.sg) is a idea about social movement for good, it began its journey on 28th Jan 2010, by 6 generous students, who wished to contribute something to the society in their own way. The idea is simple “ everyone has something in excess to give.” If you can have time, volunteer. If you can spare the money, make additional donation. And if you just have a set of much-too-small T-shirts collecting dust in the closet, why not give it to the people who need it like the poor homeless guy who would love you for it.

 

The founders of the GIVE are Zwee, Aseem, Zhiheng, Naseem, Yu Ming & Gary, says that just like the geeks we are, starting a GIVE website to share our dreams was the natural move to take. It wasn’t so easy to start, we were students right out of school and without penny in our pockets How will we fund the social experiment?

 

GIVE is about having fun doing good. But it is nothing more than a sweet idea without the continued participation of you and the tens of thousands of amazing people in our community.

Give@SG have raised SGD 1.5 Million since 2010 from 1110 fund raiser volunteers. Give is supported by many organization such as HP, 100Plus, Nestle, Power98 FM, Singapore Tote Board and many more. They have 40+ charity partners based in Singapore.

  • Since the beginning of 2011, we have launched a series of fundraising campaigns in Singapore:

I.            In January we had Style for a Cause (www.styleforacause.give.sg)

  • Companies like RedKen sponsors young hairstylist to give a makeover to raise funds for charity on Orchard Road.

II.            In February we had LoveDare (www.lovedare.give.sg)

  • Students from all over Singapore band together to give free hugs and hi-5s to spread the love and dare to inspire people to join them at supporting local charity projects.

III.            In March we had GIVE Japan 10K (www.helpjapan.give.sg)

A nation bands together, challenging oneself to a grueling run to show our support for the heroes in Japan, doing our best part to help our dear friends from afar in the land of the rising sun.

That is why we are so proud to share that GIVE is now 100% free for all donors and charities. Day to day running of the website is completely managed by cool folks like you who have joined our GIVE fellows Program. Continuous development and servicing of the servers are privately funded by Givola event-based fundraising solutions. So that means you get the best service for the lowest cost in Singapore!
