EduGrow for Brighter Tomorrows calling for Volunteers

Posted by VolunteerSG Admin | Posted in Call for Volunteers | Posted on 17-03-2017

Every Saturday, the children will ask, “What time are the mentors coming?”

Do you love interacting with children? Want to make a lasting difference in a child’s life? Are you able to commit one-hour weekly (any day) for at least one year?

EduGrow for Brighter Tomorrows is a family-centric, early intervention pilot programme that seeks to provide holistic support for children (K2 to Sec 1) from lower-income families living in Marine Parade. Through a community-oriented approach, mentors (like you!) are matched to these children, building on their aspirations, character, education, financial literacy and relationship skills.

You will serve as a trusted friend and role model, journeying with the child, strengthening and supporting him/her, and enabling him/her to have equal opportunities in life to break out of the poverty cycle.

To sign up or find out more,  please call Ms Delia Pak at 6387 3700 or 9119 9854, or e-mail edugrow@life-community.org

Thereafter, we will arrange for a get-to-know-you session, to help us best match your personality and volunteering preferences to the needs of our children. And not to worry, trainings will be provided!

Closing date: 7 April 2017

EduGrow for Brighter Tomorrows is a joint programme by Life Community Services Society (www.life-community.org/edugrow) and WeCare@MarineParade www.facebook.com/WeCare.MarineParade

Protect yourself against Scams

Posted by VolunteerSG Admin | Posted in Announcement | Posted on 17-03-2017

0

Fake charities try to take advantage of your generosity and compassion for others in need. Scammers will steal your money by posing as a genuine charity. Not only do these scams cost you money, they also divert much needed donations away from legitimate charities and causes.

Fake charity approaches occur all year round and often take the form of a response to real disasters or emergencies, such as floods, cyclones, earthquakes and bushfires. Scammers will pose as either agents of legitimate well-known charities or create their own charity name. This can include charities that conduct medical research or support disease sufferers and their families. Scammers may also play on your emotions by claiming to help children who are ill.

Fake charities operate in a number of different ways. You may be approached on the street or at your front door by people collecting money. Scammers may also set up fake websites which look similar to those operated by real charities. Some scammers will call or email you requesting a donation.

Warning signs

  • You’ve never heard of the charity before, or it is well-known but you suspect the website, email or letter may be fake. A fake website may look almost identical to a legitimate charity site, changing only the details of where to send donations.
  • The person collecting donations on behalf of the charity does not have any identification. Remember, even if they do have identification, it could be forged or meaningless.
  • You are put under pressure or made to feel guilty or selfish if you don’t want to donate.
  • You are asked to provide a cash donation as they don’t accept cheques. Or, they want the cheque to be made out to them rather than to the charity.
  • You are not given a receipt. Or, they give you a receipt that does not have the charity’s details on it.

Protect yourself

  • Approach charity organisations directly to make a donation or offer support.
  • Check the organisation’s name and look them up.
  • Legitimate charities are registered – you check an organisation’s credentials here to see if they are a genuine charity.
  • Never send money or give personal information, credit card details or online account details to anyone you don’t know or trust and never by email.
  • If you are approached by a street collector, ask to see their identification. If you have any doubts about who they are, do not pay.
  • If you are approached in person, ask the collector for details about the charity such as its full name, address and how the proceeds will be used. If they become defensive and cannot answer your questions, close the door or hang up.
  • Avoid any arrangement with a stranger that asks for up-front payment via money order, wire transfer, international funds transfer, pre-loaded card or electronic currency. It is rare to recover money sent this way.
  • Don’t open suspicious or unsolicited emails (spam) – delete them. If you click on a link or open an attachment, you may install a harmful program without knowing it.

Have you been scammed?

If you think you have provided your account details to a scammer, contact your bank or financial institution immediately.

We encourage you to report scams via the report a scam page.
