A funny thing happened on the way to the Champions of Good ceremony to receive a recognition from Mr Heng Swee Keat, Minister of Finance.
The organiser, National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC) requested for photos for its publications and for publicity purposes.
We cannot find any high-res photos of our charity work. Only photos captured through our iPhones.
I told my young assistant that we have probably done more charity work than many other organisations. We have been doing it for years.
However, it has never quite occurred to us to promote ourselves and publicize our good work.
A case of “…don’t let your left hand know what your right hand does…” (Mathew 6:3).
In the booklet given to us during the ceremony, it highlighted that Champions of Good is a recognition of companies that “have not only been exemplary in their corporate giving efforts, but have also been an influencer and multiplier by engaging their partners and stakeholders on a collaborative giving journey.”
They are “recognised as catalysts of change for corporate giving.”
We aspire to do more and do better in promoting, supporting, influencing, catalyzing and multiplying more good works.
I hope this message will find a place in your heart.
By the way, I have also recorded other reflections.
