Wong Fu Productions Live in Singapore | Habitat for Humanity Singapore
One of the many things that I often take for granted is having a roof above my head. Coming home after a tiring day at work or school, a home is a cosy hideaway for many of us to unwind and let the stress dissipate, even if just for a while. Imagine yourself after a long day – with no house to return to. Where do you go; Where will you sleep? Now take yourself out of that imagery.. and realise that this what many people around the world have go through. This is the type of poverty housing that Habitat for Humanity wants to eliminate.
For those of you who haven’t heard of Habitat for Humanity, they are a non-profit housing organisation with a mission to eliminate poverty housing worldwide by building simple, decent houses with the help of the homeowner families themselves and volunteers. Through volunteer labour and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses with the help of the homeowner (partner) families. Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit and financed with affordable, no-interest loans. The homeowners’ monthly mortgage payments are used to build still more Habitat houses.
This coming February, Wong Fu Productions and Soulheartist will be collaborating with Habitat for Humanity Singapore to give a home to a family in need. You can do your part for this good cause by subscribing to the project and a portion of your subscription will go to building the house. Due to the recent disaster in the Philippines, the first $5000 raised for this project will go to support the Haiyan survivors through Habitat For Humanity Philippines.
And if you’re a fan of Wong Fu Productions, you’re in for a treat! Wesley Chan and Philip Wang from Wong Fu Productions will be returning to Singapore on 11 February 2014 to hold a live Q&A and VIP meet & greet session! Ask them all the questions you’ve always wanted – What have they been up to? How do they continue to navigate the film industry? Boxers or briefs? No, scratch the last one.
Contributing to a good cause and seeing the boys of Wong Fu Productions? Oh and did I mention that subscribing to Soulheartist will get you some benefits from brands like The WYLD Shop and Loserkids? If that isn’t reason enough to be part of this project, I don’t know what is.
As Jane Austen says, “There is nothing like staying at home, for real comfort.” Take that extra step to help build a house for those who don’t have one. Without physically welcoming them in, you can extend the comfort of your home to others.
