Gift-A-Kurung 2018 FAQs

    • Who am I donating to? For the Gift-A-Kurung 2018 project, you can select from the beneficiary list who you would like your donation to go to. This year, we have partnered with Casa Raudha Women’s Home, NTUC First Campus, LIFE-SG and An-Nur Mosque. Your donation will go to either of their beneficiaries.
    • Why do I need to submit photos of my donations? It has been our mission at The Gift Community to ensure the quality of the donations are not compromised. The photos will allow us to determine if the outfits are still of good quality and also trendy before they are gifted to the beneficiaries. Moreover, the photos will allow our Quality Inspectors to easily identify your donation during the Collection Day.
    • Some of my donations were rejected. Why is this so? Our Quality Inspectors have a set of guidelines they adhere to when approving the outfits. Most importantly, they ensure the outfits are modest, not outdated, still in good condition and do not have any visible wear and tear.
    • I am not free during the Collection Day, are there other days available? You can simply send us an email at info@giftcommunity.sg to arrange for another day to drop off your donations. Do note that the collaborators are not responsible for receiving your donations. You will need to arrange with our volunteers who will be present to receive your donations.
    • The online form allows for only 10 pieces to be donated. Do I have to submit multiple forms to donate more? No, you don’t have to. Simply drop us an email at admin@giftcommunity.sg if you would like to donate more than 10 pieces.
    • I am a boutique owner who would like to donate brand new stocks. Who do I contact? You can drop us an email at sponsor@giftcommunity.sg. Our friendly sponsorship officer will be happy to assist you.
    • Can I donate my tudung or any other accessories? As the name suggests, we only focus on collecting baju kurungs and other raya outfits. However, if you are a boutique owner who would like to donate brand new accessories in bulk, simply email us at sponsor@giftcommunity.sg and our friendly sponsorship officer will be happy to assist you.
    • I would like to contribute other items for the event. Who do I contact? We are definitely in need of toys, stationeries, packet drinks and/or kueh raya for our goodie bags during the event. We also are looking for sponsors for the iftar feast. If you would like to contribute any of these items, send us an email at sponsor@giftcommunity.sg and our friendly sponsorship officer will be happy to assist you.
