Support our Typhoon Response – Join the Fun Run
This Sunday you have a wonderful opportunity to dust off those running shoes, gather up your family and friends and join us on the healthiest school community event of the year, the ‘BSM Fun Run’. A large portion of the money raised will be used to continue our relief efforts for those affected by Typhoon Mangkhut/Ompong.
As I mentioned last week, Dulwich Singapore were fast out of the blocks in fundraising to partner with us in supporting the Central and Northern Luzon communities most impacted by the Typhoon. Dulwich dedicated a day to activities, sales and free dress that raised a whopping SD17,000 or USD12,500. An amazing effort that will make a huge difference. This partnership is another great example of the benefits of being a FOBISIA member. I think I can speak on behalf of our whole community when I say we feel humbled by their generosity. Sunday is our turn to continue the fundraising and add to the wonderful effort of the Dulwich community.
We are now gathering additional information about the medium and longer-term needs in the region. From this we will be reviewing our next steps to identify how we can best use these funds. We will be engaging our students with their peers in Singapore to make key decisions before we take action and then track how our joint funds directly benefit the families most negatively impacted by Typhoon. It goes without saying that we extend out heartfelt thanks to Dulwich Singapore and the best way to demonstrate this thanks is to join us on Sunday!
