Thank you for your support! We have raised $10 000 for Singapore Cancer Society through Project QaneBrella. We couldn't have done it without you!
Project QaneBrella is a student-run initiative raising awareness and funds for Singapore Cancer Society's cancer warriors under the Citi-YMCA Youth for Causes Programme (YFC) 2019.
We will be carrying out Project QaneBrella from 17 May to 31 August 2019. If you would like to help support our cause, you can visit our campaign at bit.ly/QanebrellaforSCS.
Our Art Therapy Program
Our team has a vision of incorporating our patented invention, the QaneBrella in support of the Singapore Cancer Society Zentangle Art Therapy Program by having them hand-painted by our volunteers together with cancer warriors.
To raise funds for the SCS, each QaneBrella will be uniquely hand-painted by cancer warriors and given as a token of appreciation for each donation of $100 & above. To donate, you can visit our campaign at bit.ly/QanebrellaforSCS.
INTERGENERATIONAL BONDING ACTIVITY
On the 21st of June, 13 cancer warriors worked together with volunteers from SJI International to use the QaneBrella as an artistic platform to express their creativity. The warriors spent the afternoon interacting with the students and painting artisan QaneBrellas together, guided by professional zentangle specialist Stephanie Jennifer.
BACK TO BACK
After resounding feedback, we worked together with Singapore Cancer Society to hold yet another intergenerational bonding event on the 16th of July. 10 cancer warriors returned to work alongside SJII volunteers to design the QaneBrellas.
