Greetings from Team We Build Rainbows!

We are currently looking for volunteers to help to raise awareness as well as raise funds for the Dyslexia Association of Singapore (DAS).

According to http://www.das.org.sg/ an estimated of 10% Singaporeans are dyslexic and many are unaware of having this learning disability, thus my team hopes to raise greater awareness to the public through our street sale.

The funds raised would be channeled to the Dyslexia Association of Singapore (http://www.das.org.sg) for their many programmes for the dyslexic children. We would be selling customised badges and we need your help! CIP hours would be awarded and this is definitely one of the experience you would love to have.

Further details will be sent to you via email or SMS.
