A Singapore-based non-profit organisation has stepped in with a novel initiative to honour COVID frontline workers with 'gratitude cards'.
"The National Day Gratitude Card Project initiative is a gesture of our love, gratitude and support to the frontline workers who have been fighting at the forefront of COVID for us for the last 18 months. They have also faced discrimination and exclusion. Sometimes even xenophobia and racism. Yet stood strong between us and the pandemic, " Big at Heart said.
Big at Heart has collaborated with SG Together to show its appreciation for frontline workers in Singapore.
"We need your help in creating up to 30,000 Thank You cards that should be sent by August 2," the non-profit organisation said. "We had organised a virtual workshop where participants learnt to make 2 types of artistic cards."
Big at Heart said that the card recipients are public health workers, hawkers, food delivery riders and safe distancing ambassadors.
"Let your messages be towards them. Also keep them brief, kind and neutral. The messages will be vetted by the Big At Heart team. Any cards that have messages that are inappropriate or not suitable to the context may be eliminated. The right of vetting stays with us as organisers, " it said.
The organisation Big at Heart works towards the causes of women, children and marginalised communities in need through volunteering, events, donations-in-kind and fundraising.
