Give a Child a Book

9 Dec 2020 - 28 Feb 2021

 

British Theatre Playhouse (BTP) is a professional theatrical and musical production company incorporated in Singapore in 2004.

Last Christmas, we produced a book entitled, ‘Covi, the little Christmas dinosaur’ to inspire, uplift, bring joy, hope and relief to children around the world during these difficult times. The ‘Give a Child a Book’ campaign in Singapore reached out to BTP friends, associates and supporters, to buy the book to give to children who cannot afford it.

The book features a real-life 7-year-old girl, Harmonie-Rose who lost her arms and legs to meningitis when she was just 1 year old. Harmonie-Rose is the first-ever junior Ambassador for the charity Meningitis Now in recognition of her work for raising money for various charities, and her courage and strength to defy all odds. She doesn’t let anything hold her back and will represent Great Britain in gymnastics. Harmonie-Rose also enjoys skipping, jumping, running, drawing and even writing.

Thank you for supporting us thus far! We are pleased to share that 306 books have been donated to our children beneficiaries. Many thanks to those who contributed!

You can still continue to support Singapore Children’s Society!

You may do so by making a monetary donation to Singapore Children’s Society via this page. Click the buttons on the right hand side of this campaign to start the donation process. This platform is able to receive donations via credit card, GrabPay or even WeChat wallet. Singapore Children’s Society is an approved Institution of a Public Character (IPC), hence all monetary donations made to Children's Society are eligible for a 2.5 times tax deduction. Funds raised will go towards supporting the programmes and services the Society runs for children, youth and families in need.

And while the “Give a Child a Book” campaign has closed, you may still purchase the book for yourself, or for family and friends via the BTP website.
