Fold a heart to help ST fund for needy kids

SINGAPORE - To express your love for Singapore on her 52nd birthday, take part in the Fold-a-HEART campaign.

For every heart folded and deposited into an SG Cares box, HSBC Bank will donate $1 to The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund (STSPMF).

A heart can be made from any square piece of paper, which should then be coloured red and folded.

Boxes can be found at HSBC branches, The Clementi Mall and The Seletar Mall.

The campaign, organised by STSPMF, HSBC and SG Cares, runs from now to Aug 22.

STSPMF was started in 2000 as a community project to help children from low-income families by providing them with pocket money for school. It has since helped over 150,000 cases of children and given out more than $55 million.

Previous STSPMF events this year include the Straits Times Run in the City and Score For A Cause.

SG Cares is a national movement that organises programmes and campaigns like this to support the goodwill and compassion of Singaporeans.
