Voices of Empowerment
As we usher in the yuletide season of this trying year, Voices Wellness is keeping its eye on what truly matters—unity and inclusivity. In partnership with functional fashion retailer Will & Well, we’ll be raising funds and empowering individuals with diverse needs.
What is it?
A fun and meaningful campaign featuring a donation drive, a three-day wellness challenge, and a series of charity auctions.
When’s it happening?
The donation drive will take place from November 14 to December 12, while the wellness challenge will run from December 10 to 12 on Voices Wellness’ Instagram account (@voiceswellness). Charity auctions will also be held on the same Instagram account on November 20, November 27, and December 4.
Who is Will & Well?
A homegrown company big on design thinking and technology, Will & Well creates apparel that provides comfort, dignity, and independence for people with disabilities. Think: Two-way blouses with Velcro closures that allow for easy dressing, easy-to-wear trousers with full-length zips on each side, and arm slings that convert into a sling bag when you’ve recovered.
Who are the benefactors?
People nominated under Will & Well’s #BeTheDifference list, who are waiting for an outfit to be sponsored—these include individuals with muscular dystrophy and amputated limbs.
How can I participate?
To participate, members of the public are invited to accept the Voices of Empowerment wellness challenge by making any donation amounting to S$20 and above between November 14 to December 12.
From December 10 to 12, the three-day wellness challenge will run on Voices Wellness’ Instagram page (@voiceswellness), featuring themes like fitness and paying-it-forward. Participants will respond to each day’s challenge prompt by taking a photo or video to show what they’ve done and posting it on their feed, using the hashtag #VoicesofEmpowerment, following and tagging @voiceswellness, @willandwell, as well as all prize sponsors.
