#StayHomeWithAscott aims to support underprivileged children affected by COVID-19

In these unprecedented times, staying afloat is important. 

Yet, not everyone is able to come out of this pandemic unaffected. Supporting the community and our weakest links are keys to ensuring that we achieve some sense of normalcy once this is over, and it’s now more than ever that a charitable spirit will carry us all forward.

Yet monetary donations and volunteering hours, are not the only ways you can help out. 

Ascott has launched the #StayHomeWithAscott campaign with CapitaLand’s philanthropic arm, CapitaLand Hope Foundation (CHF), which will donate US$10 (S$14) for every eligible pledge with the #StayHomeWithAscott hashtag from 20 April to 31 May 2020.

All you have to do is to post photos or videos of your culinary moments in your home kitchens with the hashtag #StayHomeWithAscott on Instagram and set your profile to public. 

With the support of CHF, Ascott has pledged a total of US$200,000 (S$284,331) through the campaign. The donation will go towards Save the Children’s food security and assistance programmes, to support about 12 thousand underprivileged children affected by COVID-19. For every pledged donation of US$10, it goes towards providing food for a child over 20 days. 

The first US$100,000 will be donated directly to Save the Children, and the second tranche of US$100,000 will be unlocked once the campaign has garnered 10 thousand posts on Instagram from now till 31 May 2020.
