UPDATE: We have just received the good news from Assisi Hospice that The Empty Box Christmas Charity raised a grand total of $9,700 after the final tally!

The first moment I catch sight of The Little Dröm Store, it is magic, like an unexpected smile. The windows of this new gallery shop glow with warmth from the corner of Ann Siang Hill, and I hurry to the bright lights with anticipation.

Conceptualised by owners Stanley Tan, 29, and Antoinette Wong, 25, The Little Dröm Store is filled with carefully selected vintage cameras, stationery and an array of other unique accessories.

Cheque presentation to Assisi Hospice

Within its 10-day span, The Empty Box Christmas Charity Drive raised a total of $8,000!
Thank you all who sponsored the food vouchers – you have brought such joy to the patients and families supported by Assisi Hospice this Christmas with your overwhelming response.

We recently learned that one reader purchased 25 books as gifts for charity, while another was inspired to send 20 copies of The Empty Box to orphans in Uganda for Christmas.

These generous acts of kindness are absolutely what The Empty Box is all about.
