Commit was initiated in late 2009 to enable our community members to make a more focused and consolidated charity contribution to the wider Singaporean community, particularly the needy and less fortunate, and for our members and SJRS sub-groups/ committees to directly participate and learn from the same.
Since its inception, Commit has had a series of activities with Sunlove, its adopted charity and also with other organizations. Continued efforts have been made to not only meet the needs of the locally adopted charity, but also to serve other organizations, respond to overseas crises and increase environmental awareness.
The activities have continued to be streamlined and enhanced, to cater to all age groups in our community. (click here for details of our regular and other activities)
There are various ways you can donate/contribute (be it on regular/ad hoc basis or on occasion on birthday/anniversaries/memoriums/etc) :
- in cash or in kind, for the benefit of Sunlove residents or other needy organisations
- items on “needs list”, which are items required by Sunlove beneficiaries for their home that they are unable to afford/obtain themselves (click here for the latest needs list)
- your time and resources, for activities at Sunlove or in SJRS events
- any ideas or suggestions at any time to help further this cause of community service…anyone can contribute !
Some thoughts to leave you with…….
“Everyone can give something. Even if you can’t give money or material objects, you can give time, knowledge, wisdom, skills, leadership, attention, touch, advice, hope, laughter, or love.
Love is a universal need and spans all countries, cultures, and faiths.
Those who are blessed with knowledge and wisdom have a responsibility to share their knowledge and wisdom.
Time and money are both valuable resources. Give as much as you can of them both.
If you give people skills, you empower them.
When you give an attentive ear, you are giving utmost respect.
Give what you need most in order to experience the real power of giving.
Take a balanced approach to life and to giving.”
