EVOS Esports, the leading esports organization in Southeast Asia, has announced a collaboration with three charity organizations in Singapore; with the Singapore Children’s Society, Club Rainbow and the Disabled People’s Association.
EVOS Esports is committed towards corporate social responsibility initiatives to aid the mentioned charitable organizations by assisting in fund raising events such as organizing charity show matches and having our players interact with the children, as they too are avid esports enthusiasts.
Singapore Children’s Society is a charitable organisation committed to bringing relief and happiness to children in need. They provide care and guidance to their beneficiaries through diverse programmes and services designed to meet their varied needs.
EVOS Esports is pleased to announce a donation of SGD$1,000 towards Singapore Children’s Society corporate giving programme, 1000 Enterprises for Children-in-Need (1000E). 1000E is a fundraising programme that aims to encourage small, medium and large companies to engage in corporate philanthropy by pledging their donation annually to Singapore Children’s Society.
Club Rainbow is also an organization for the children. They support and empower children with chronic illnesses and their families by providing compassionate relevant services in their journey towards an enriching life. Many of their services are geared towards helping the entire family in a holistic way as every family member is likely to be impacted by the child’s illness in one way or another.
The Disabled People’s Association (DPA) is Singapore’s only cross-disability non-profit organization. They represent the disability community, working to build a fairer society where everyone can participate in all aspects of life from education to employment and access to social integration.
Ivan Yeo, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of EVOS Esports said, “We are delighted to partner with Singapore Children’s Society, Club Rainbow, and the Disabled People’s Association. Supporting the less fortunate is part of EVOS Esports’ ingrained culture, as we have always believed in paying it forward. We hope to encourage the younger generation to join us in this initiative and make a positive impact.”
Joyce Teng, Director of Community Engagement & Partnerships of Singapore Children’s Society said, “We are excited to partner EVOS Esports to protect and nurture children, youth and families in need under our care. This year will continue to be a tough year and we hope that this collaboration will galvanise the esports and gaming community to help champion our cause as well.”
Dr. Sashikumar Ganapathy, President of Club Rainbow said, “We are glad to partner with EVOS Esports. Through this meaningful initiative, we hope that EVOS Esports’ supporters and members of the public can learn more about our cause and the funds raised can aid more children and families in need.”
Valerie Chia, Community Engagement Executive of Disabled People’s Association said, ““DPA would like to thank EVOS Esports for choosing to support the work that we do. Not only are they helping to raise funds to support the good work that we do for the disability community, they are also empowering more persons with disabilities to live better and more independently.”
One of EVOS Esports’ commitments is giving back to the community as well as helping the underprivileged especially in locations that we have market presence in, such as Singapore.
