Part of our mission at CARTWHEELS is to inspire the community with hope and promote mental wellness.  To celebrate CARTWHEELS turning ONE in September, we participated in the

“Build-a-little-home” campaign organised by New Hope Community Services,

a registered charity that provides shelter to the homeless and empowering them towards a positive change. CARTWHEELS donated $10 of every Toddler Art Starter Kit purchased to this fundraising project. Each kit also came along with a cardboard HOPE HOUSE which is a money savings box for kids to make and decorate. The savings can then be donated to the campaign. 

At the end of September, the kids collected about $60 in their cardboard HOPE HOUSE through saving their daily pocket money and by doing household chores. I also promised to match them dollar-for-dollar. Also CARTWHEELS pledged $200 in donation from the sales from our Toddler Art Starter Kits in September. Altogether we donated $320 to the campaign!

Initially I thought it was such a small amount but my son was so happy when we looked through the list of how our donation could help one resident with a month's rental ($200), sponsor a life skills training programme at the shelter ($100) and also sponsor one daily meal and hygiene product ($20). He broke down the amounts all by himself!

I'm really proud of the kids who were so enthusiastic about the campaign. They asked me who we are helping next!

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who have support and contributed to the fundraising campaign. Creativity can have a significant purpose! Thank you everyone for celebrating with us!

Every month seems to be full of opportunities to create something new! Together with Pauseability, we created a video of drawing fruits for the National Gallery Singapore's new interactive artwork – An Artist’s Tropical Landscape. This instructional video hopes to inspire children of all ages to draw 5 tropical fruits.

And look at the right! So excited to see our earlier video project for #SmallBigDreamersAtHome also being screened! See that brown table in the video? It has been used for all our videos and I absolutely love it because it's where my family creates art at as well! I hope you've a creative space at home too.

I am inspired by how children freely explore simple materials given to them and create meaningful fantastic art. God has given us materials to create, we’ve his creative DNA and thus everyone is creative. My hope is that even as adults, we just pause for a moment, explore and create something, anything, even with the simplest materials given to us.

Before CARTWHEELS began, I was already given the opportunity to conduct some workshops for adults and youths in the community. The goal of our creative workshops is to inspire creativity in a restful atmosphere. Process art activities for adults are perfect for promoting mental wellness as there is no pressure to produce results. I facilitate the creative process by setting up the learning space, prompts and materials to draw out each person's unique creativity.

Initially, people were shy, modest about their creative abilities and skills but after that they just took off naturally. Amazingly some could spend more than an hour in creating even though they seemed hesitant at the beginning and I myself was so blessed by the sharing of their creations. Through these sessions, I hope that through exploring, creating and expressing ourselves through art, we pause to rest and relax, refresh and recharge.
