Project Medan 2016

Dear friends,

Sorry for not updating but if you have been following us on instagram and FB, we have raised some funds from our DIY Terrarium event recently. We did not raised a lot of funds but these funds will contribute for our future projects which is truly appreciated. Thanks to everyone who participated and made the event a very successful one!

Project Medan is happening this 26th Dec which is tomorrow and we apologise for the lack of announcement as I was bedridden for almost 3 weeks from a bad landing on my left leg which resulted to a knee contusion. This year however, we do not have many members participating in the trip due to personal commitments, hence the group has only 5 of us.

However, we would still be bringing joy to a bunch of cancer kids of the Smiling Kids Foundation in Medan, and hopefully the 5 of us will be able to manage them with the help of the organisers. So wish us luck and pray for our safety during this whole trip!

Follow us on instagram and FB to be updated on our trip! Take care and Merry Christmas!

Feeling blessed,

Big Roy

Vietnam Here We Come!

We will be embarking for Project Vietnam 2015 today and this year we have a total 13 members participating and amongst those are 3 mothers! I hope the journey will not be too tiring for them!

So please keep us in your prayers for our safety and also for the kids in the two orphanages that we will be visiting. We pray that they are healthy and study hard so that they can too help others when they are older.

We will have instant updates on Instagram under @caregiversgroup or our FB page at http://www.fb.com/caregiversgroup. Please follow us there for updates!

Thanks to all our friends who have contributed old clothes and donations, we will be bringing them over with us.

Update soon!
With gratitude,

Big Roy

All Booked!

Hey guys!
All our flight tickets, lodging and transportation are booked for this year’s trip to Chiang Rai! Total expenses per pax excluding food and shopping is around S$760 and all are paid for by our own members, just to be part of something meaningful that CGG is committed to do annually.

This year so far we have only 9 participants as most of our regular members have their own commitments. However I have a couple of friends from Chiang Rai itself whom will be joining us there. Nevertheless, it’s gonna be a fruitful trip and we are so looking forward to it. Will be meeting up sometime next week to work on the programs while we are there. Just waiting for our friends to get back on the wish list and demographics of the kids there to better cater to them.

At the same time, we will be having another fund raiser event this year sometime end Nov. Yes it is our popular Fund Bake event again and this year we will be holding it in a proper baking environment, and learning from an artisan baker with many years of experience! We shall reveal the item that we’ll be learning to bake once the venue is confirmed! Looking forward to everyone’s support on this!

Alrighty gonna run, stay tuned to more updates sometime this weekend!

God bless,
Big Roy

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.

PROJECT CHIANG MAI 2013 UPDATES 3

Hey y’all,

Sorry for not updating sooner as I was awfully swarmed with my big move inter-city within China and finally able to catch some breath over the weekend to work on posting this update.

From our last update, we are already filled for this year’s charity trip to Northern Thailand. So this year we have a total of 16 members heading up to bring joy and fun to the 160+ kids of Baan Mae Ping! This is definitely a record for CGG since we started 5 years ago! Awesome!

While we are organizing our activities up there as well as logistical matters, we are also planning for our fund raising event which will be announced in our next post. We would like to thank our friends and colleagues for some donations coming in every now and then and we will definitely acknowledge and list them down after our trip.

So check out our next post and we really hope to see you at the fund raising event!

With gratitude,

Big Roy
