With Christmas just around the corner, why not spread the festive spirit by giving back to others? Here are some simple ways you can be a force for good and bring the gifts of joy and hope to those who need it most.
Bring joy to our migrant worker friends
Organised by local social enterprise It's Raining Raincoats, #WeHaveADream is a festive giving initiative that aims to reach out to our migrant worker community to thank them for their sweat and hard work, especially with the challenges they've faced over this past year.

Why not give the gift of life this Christmas via a blood donation? As blood stocks tend to dip around the holiday season, you can give back by visiting a community blood drive or a Singapore Red Cross blood bank to help ensure that Singapore’s national blood stocks remain at healthy levels.

Help our four-legged pals
Help fulfil the Christmas wishes of street and shelter animals by supporting Causes for Animals Singapore (CAS), which provides food and medical aid to street cats and dogs with no place to call home.
Help break the cycle of poverty
Equip vulnerable mothers to secure a healthy future for their little ones with World Vision Singapore's #MakeChristmasCount campaign. Malnourished children have weakened immune systems that can permanently impair their growth. Some even lose their sense of sight, taste and smell. By empowering mothers to practice proper childcare, nutrition and feeding practices, these children will be able to have a brighter tomorrow.
