Carousell has launched #SayYesToBlessings to empower non-profit organisations in digitalising and amplifying their causes online, as part of the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre‘s National Day 2021 Campaign. NVPC’s campaign ‘Together, Singapore Cares’ champions the spirit of doing good in the community.
The accounts of non-profit organisations will be upgraded to CarouBiz Charities Package for a year, a complimentary subscription to a suite of premium tools with a value of over S$1,500. These tools include video listings, profile cover photo for branding, premium badge for credibility. A dedicated Client Success Manager will be assigned to help provide digital marketing support as well as guides on how to maximise these tools and best practices. There will also get S$1,200 worth of Carousell coins to purchase additional ads and promotional tools in Carousell.
Apart from monetary donations, various charities have also used Carousell as a platform to solicit essential items such as masks, medical supplies and food items. One such example is Food From The Heart, a charity set up to alleviate hunger by providing reliable, consistent and sustainable food support to the less fortunate through food distribution programmes.
Users can make direct donations to these organisations with 100% of the donation going directly to them.
Participating charities include Causes For Animals, Engineering Good, Food From The Heart, iCareHub, Limitless, PPIS, Red Cross, Singapore Association for the Deaf, Salvation Army, Singapore’s Children’s Society, SPCA, SUN-DAC, TAA Trust Fund and YMCA. Interested non-profit organisations can also reach out to Carousell here for more information.
#SayYesToBlessings is the latest in Carousell’s initiatives to support and empower communities during the COVID-19 situation, other initiatives include COVID-19 Free Ads for Charity, where the company offered S$2 million in an advertising support programme for non-profit organisations helping the communities impacted by COVID-19, as well as initiated a movement called #ChooseToGive to encourage Singaporeans to donate items through its platform amid COVID-19. Carousell was also recognised as a Champion of Good in 2020 by the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre’s Company of Good.
