Date: 16 November to 31 December 2020
2020 has not been an easy year for everyone. COVID-19 disrupted our lives and we were forced to adjust to a new way of life.
Meet Suzy, the girl with cerebral palsy. She is the Singaporean icon and donation box of Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore (CPAS) and has been in Singapore since 1984. You might recognize her in her blue dress, hugging a teddy bear. Like many of you, Suzy has had a tough year. But she has held steady, as she is on an important mission to raise funds for children and adults with cerebral palsy and multiple disabilities.
In February, Suzy organized The Great Zodiac Race of Love to find out which of the 12 Zodiacs had the most amount of love! Team Monkey came up on top! But the race celebrations came to a halt as we soon found ourselves in circuit breaker. Many generous Singaporeans came forward to help charities more visibly affected by the pandemic. Suzy soon realized that donors had forgotten about CPAS. She launched a campaign Don't Forget Us Too and appealed for donations to CPAS. From August to October, Suzy was hard at work again for the Spare Your Change For Suzy campaign to commemorate World Cerebral Palsy Month. Many individuals, schools, corporates and staff of CPAS came together to appeal to donors.
Join Steady Suzy in her final appeal this year! Against all odds, she has pulled through and she knows you will too!
This campaign is in support of the SG Cares Giving Week movement.
