Hi All,

Am new to this!

Maybe can consider setting up flea to sell all your pre-loved items? I am thinking to organise one especially for mummies so we can gather and sell our items out. Let me know your thoughts! Can email me at mashbashevents@gmail.com if you are keen :)

Thank you. I have some things I can donate to those less fortunate after my baby no longer use anymore.

If donate many, many p1 to P3 textbooks and unused brand new assessment books to NTUC :
will these books be able to reach the poor, less fortunate pupils eventually, or will there be people who intercept midway, seize them and then sell them away at a profit to second hand bookshop ?

What is the best way, to ensure books are given to the less privileged children in primary school?

If NTUC is not a safe source, which other destination are safe source ? Thanks for kind advice

I missed the deadline for the donation of textbooks to ntuc share a textbook programme . Are there any other ways I can donate preloved secondary and some primary school textbooks to benefit the less privileged ?
