Many less privileged families in our society have been badly hit by the COVID-19 situation and are struggling to make ends meet. To help them tie through this tough period, we launched “Project Hope” in April to offer practical financial assistance and spread messages of hope and encouragement to them. For two months in April and May, we have disbursed a total of $28,000 and mailed out postcards with encouraging messages written by our donors and staff to over 140 low- income households from our Cornerstone Development
Initiatives (CDI) School Allowance and Food Care programme. Many of our beneficiaries have contacted us to express their gratitude and appreciation for the financial support and care given to them during this challenging time. There are still a lot of people in our community who we can reach out to impact and change lives, and we need your support!

Plushies with a purpose
As part of our Project Hope initiative, we facilitated a collaboration between our seniors from Cornerstone Senior Centre and student beneficiaries from our School Allowance programme to create plush toys for fundraising purpose. These 11 special limited-edition plush toys are especially handmade with socks. You can now do your part for charity and purchase the toy at $180 each.
Sale proceeds from each toy will be used to provide groceries for a low-income family of 6 for a month. For those who like to give without any toy purchase, you can donate any preferred amount to support this fundraising cause.
