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.

You can find photographs of the prize giving ceremony on 11 July here.

The Keep the Dream Alive Art Competition was launched in December 2008. More than 300 participants as young as 4 years old, shared their dreams through various mediums like crayons, watercolours and fabrics! The prize presentation ceremony was held on 11 July 2009 at the HDB Hub in Toa Payoh.
