Gogives is honoured to be the official mechandiser sponser for the inaugural International Women's Day (IWD) SHEROES Award at Distrii Singapore, located at Republic Plaza on 8 March 2019. The IWD SHEROES event celebrates and recognise the many women who serve the special needs community in Singapore selflessly. These woman have made a huge difference to the lives of many differently-abled child and their caregivers. It is never easy to look after a child with special needs and indeed, a lot more public education is needed in Singapore to make it a more inclusive society. Creating awareness for the many women who serve this community. Through the IWD SHEROES Award event, it is one of the important means to help spread the message.
The IWD SHEROES Awards were nominations received since January 2019 for the following seven categories: Social Worker, Volunteer, Educator, VWO /NGO / Social Enterprise, Therapist, Care-giver and Psychologist /Counselor. More than 40 entries for the SHEROES Award were received from all over Singapore. Those who nominated these women told very moving stories of many caregivers and different professional service providers who went beyond their call of duty. A judging panel made a final selection of 30 SHEROES whom we celebrated together at this event. More information about SHEROES can be found at https://www.heartsocialent.com/sheroes/
Gogives is very honored when the founder of The Heart Enterprise, Joanne Leow, contacted us to be their official merchandiser sponsor in this event. We are very happy to be given an opportunity to play a small part to help in this event. We helped design and fully sponsored the SHEROES tshirt for the volunteers of this event as well as to assist The Heart Enterprise to raise funds by selling these Tshirts in order to support the April Autism month's events which The Heart Enterprise is organising.
In addition, to give these SHEROES a pleasant surprise, Gogives had specially sewed the Hearts to the handmade crochet Bunny Bella to be given to each SHEROES award winner. Ballerina Bunny Bella was chosen as it signifies the perseverance, patience and gentleness that each SHEROES must display while balancing herself and being on her toes at all time and dancing through difficult times in a graceful manner just like a ballerina while serving the special needs.
Once again, congratulations to all the 30 SHEROES award winner.
