Fair for All Families

12 March 2016

fairforallfamilies-squareThis March, AWARE is proud to host Fair for All Families, a FREE carnival in support of single parents and their children! Open to all, but with something special for single-parent families.

Jump into our bouncy castle, get your hands messy with parent-child painting, stretch your muscles with a yoga class, hear single mothers talk about their lives, and hang out with your friends and family at Hong Lim Park on 12 March.

Let’s celebrate International Women’s Day by giving something special to the single parents in our communities for their unique efforts and love. We’re giving out goodie bags for single parents chock full of vouchers and freebies, setting up stalls with discounted offers, games, bubbles, circus art, balloons – and so much more!

So bring your families and kakis of all shapes and sizes, and join this extra fun, extra loud fair – where ALL kinds of families are embraced!

We’re looking for commercial partners! If your business would like to set up a booth, contribute to our goodie bags for single parents, or offer free services, email projects@aware.org.sg.

Programme highlights:

Family art (4pm – 5pm)
Parents, get your little ones to express themselves, and join this collaborative family painting class, guided by an experienced facilitator. We’re sure it’ll be a great bonding session for you and your kids!

Books, clothes and toys swap (throughout)
Got unwanted toys, books and clothes sitting in your closet at home? Bring them down to the fair, and get your hands on new and old treasures!

And much, much more. Gather your loved ones and your picnic mats, and let’s make it fair for all families!
