Pandas Kai Kai and Jia Jia have been roped in to boost a fund-raising effort. Property giant CapitaLand has started a Because iCare - Kai Kai and Jia Jia Charity Drive to support the President's Challenge 2012.

President Tony Tan Keng Yam was the guest of honour at the launch of the initiative at the Singapore Zoo on Wednesday.

As part of the launch, he and 150 other guests, including former president S R Nathan, chairman of the CapitaLand Hope Foundation, were given a half-hour tour of the panda enclosure.

Fifty children from the Infant Jesus Homes and Children's Centres and the Society for the Physically Disabled also had a tour of the Giant Panda Forest.
