Project Ho Chi Minh A Success!

Hey y’all!

We are back from Vietnam on the 31st Dec 2015 and immediately got back to prepping for the new year at work!

Project Ho Chi Minh was a success as we brought fun as well as donations to 2 orphanages. At the same time, the team also experienced life in Vietnam absorbing the different cultures and lifestyles. We definitely enjoyed ourselves and was rejuvenating at the same time! However, this year’s project we hope we can work on a new program where we encourage sustainability by way of contributing equipments or teaching them viable new skillsets. So remember to follow us on FB to get all the news!

Here I’d like to thank all our members for their relentless support and we had 3 mothers of our members who joined us on this trip to lend a hand too! Special thanks to our Vietnamese friends Bosley and Richard for coordinating the orphanages, transportation, translation, shopping, etc. Without them would be seriously tough for us to be there even! Check out the pictures and videos can be seen on our Instagram  as well as our Facebook page!

Last but not least, we would like to thank our donors who have been supporting our projects for years. Some even from year 1! On behalf of the whole team at Care Givers Group, thank you guys for being so supportive, there’s no slowing us down now!

Project Ho Chi Minh 2015

Hi y’all,

Sorry for the lack of communication as everyone is particularly busy this year, especially for me. So we will try our best to update as much as possible.

As you can see from the title, we have decided to head to Ho Chi Minh this year to visit a couple of orphanages. Despite our busy schedules, we are still finding time to plan for our trip this year. We have friends in Vietnam helping us to coordinate some logistical matters over there and will be heading there on the 24th December instead of our usual 25th.

As we are planning our itinerary, do let us know if you happen to know some orphanages at HCMC that require help and we would like to visit and perhaps fulfill some of their wishlist. You can email us at cggsingapore@gmail.com with the details.

Will update more and please keep us in mind in your prayers.

Thank you and God bless.

Yours truly,

Big Roy

Project Chiang Rai 2014 – An Awesome Trip!

Hey guys,

Sorry for the lack of updates over here but we have been updating a lot on Facebook due to the ease of uploading of pics via many forms of  medium.

 

The trip to Chiang Rai was an awesome one. We planned for 2 locations but ended up checking out another school, totally impromptu. Everyone enjoyed themselves playing with the kids, mingling with them, spreading the love and I must say our team was ready for all things unexpected. Could be due to our many years of experience dealing with kids? I’ll leave it to your speculation!

 

As I have embarked on a new venture of late, time is really limited on my side. Hence I will try to upload pics of the schools asap! I have already uploaded the first school pics and you can view them on https://www.facebook.com/caregiversgroup!

 

Thanks again for all the support guys! Your trust in us let us witness the happy faces of all our beneficiaries! We will upload the list of donors and supporters soon!

 

Take care and God bless!

 

Yours faithfully,

Big Roy

FUND BAKE 2014

Friends of Care Givers Group,

Every year we have a fund raising event to help raise a little fund to help us reach out to more poor children for our charity trips to somewhere in Asia. But the main purpose is to actually keep in touch with our friends, relatives and colleagues who have been supporting us for our projects since we started CGG in March 2009. We find such activities very meaningful amidst our busy lives and also to help those who are new to us understand our work better.

Fund Bake 2014 is back again for the 3rd time after previous 2 successful attempts and this year we will be holding the event in a proper baking school with proper baking facilities at Bakerz@Work! So what’s on the menu? Check out the details below:

Project Chiang Mai A Success!

Project Chiang Mai was a success! Sorry it took us so long to update as it is always hectic the first quarter of the year and at the same time we were tabulating the figures while going about our full time jobs. Nevertheless, Project Chiang Mai was a blast and we not only reached out to the 170 kids from Baan Mae Ping, but also to 2 other villages and a physically impaired girl, who comes from a really poor family with only her mother trying to make ends meet while attending to her all the time. It is just depressing to witness such a case, so we discussed and donated 10000 bahts to them which is around S$400 but it can help them a lot to improve their living conditions. You guys can check out the pics if you haven’t at http://on.fb.me/1ib4jCT.

Anyways, as usual, every year we would wanna thank our wonderful donors who trust us and believe in what we do. Without them, it will be tougher for us to execute such projects. Please see the list of donors for 2013.
