Project Bring a Smile – In Partnership with Care Community Services Society
On 18th July 2014, our company partnered with Care Community Services Society, a local VWO to organized a charity event for their Care Elderly Activity Center at Gardens By the Bay wherein we had planned a few fun events for the people of the old age home. It was a rather remarkable event which started off by getting to know a little about the past lives of our guests and spending some time with them. It was interesting to know about these people, about their families and their positive attitude towards their life even during their flag end years.
To uplift the mood a little bit more, we decided on playing a fun round of quiz with them. A sheet was handed out to each one of them and their task was to guess the name of the plant shown in each picture. It was fun watching them turn into kids, looking right and left and trying to seek answers from their neighbors. This activity was followed by a sight- seeing to the cloud forest and the flower dome, and finally we proceeded towards having lunch.
Throughout the event our guests, aged not less than 60 years had maintained a positive attitude and were actively taking part in the various activities and conversations. Also, quite contrary to our stereotypical thoughts, they were rather lively and bubbly, while we on the other hand sat around like old and feeble men and women. All in all, this had been a very satisfying and wonderful experience.
