Description

Join AbleThrive #ThriveWorldwide global campaign here in Singapore on the International Day of People with Disabilities to celebrate living life to the fullest! This is one meetup out of the 28 happening in 15 countries around the world in an unprecendented stand of solidarity and community. We will be organizing a two-part activity for the day - shopping followed by a dinner gathering.

Part 1: Shopping

AbleThrive is supporting Operation Shoebox, an initiative by SocietyStaples as part of Giving Week - a national movement that encourages everyone to give back to the community. Participants will be given $20 Capitaland Shopping voucher* to shop for a gift at ION Orchard. Participants are encouraged to choose from 3 themes which the gift will fall under the category: Learn, Play or Do. For example, a gift under Learn would be storybooks and stationaries. Gifts bought will be deposited at Pope Jai Thai restaurant as mentioned in Part 2. Recipients of the gifts are currently beneficiaries from the following organizations: AWWA, APSN, MINDS Me Too! Club, Down Syndrome Association, Grace Orchard School, SUN-DAC, SPD and Friends of ASD.

Part 2: Dinner

After shopping for a gift, participants will proceed to SCAPE shopping mall, which is beside Cineleisure, where everyone will dine together at Pope Jai Thai( #03-03), an inclusive restaurant that hires persons with disabilities and which interior is designed to be accessible for all. Gifts will be deposited at the restaurant, who will help in delivering the gifts to the beneficiaries.

Dinner will be provided.
