Some 1,300 children from economically disadvantaged families will get to spend the eve of Children’s Day at Universal Studios Singapore® in Resorts World Sentosa (RWS), in this year’s presentation of Children for Children. The annual children’s charity event will also help to raise $300,000 for The Business Times Budding Artists Fund (BTBAF) and The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund (SPMF).
Children for Children is jointly organised by The Arts House (managed by The Old Parliament House Limited), The Business Times and CHIJ (Kellock). This year’s 1,300 participating children will come from over 70 primary schools.
The past four editions of Children for Children had seen more than 4,400 children from economically disadvantaged backgrounds visited some of Singapore’s iconic attractions such as the Singapore Flyer (2008), the Singapore Zoo (2009), Underwater World Singapore (2010) and RWS (2011). Following the success of last year’s Children for Children, RWS will continue to be this year’s venue partner.
