To commemorate Chingay 2014 and to inspire greater community involvement and volunteerism for the society’s needy, EZ-Link, in collaboration with the People’s Association (PA), launches the Chingay 2014 Commemorative ez-link cards, designed by internationally-renowned local father-and-son batik artists, Mr. Sarkasi Bin Said and Mr. Ika Zahri Bin Sarkasi. A Project We Care initiative by EZ-Link, the proceeds from the sale of these cards will go towards the EZ-Link PAssion Cares! Fund, a donations-specific fund under the PA Community Development Fund to support meaningful community initiatives such as sharing festive love with well-deserving caregivers and volunteers in society.
Keeping to its objectives of helping families and individuals in need, the EZ-Link PAssion Cares! Fund this year focuses on extending appreciation and motivation, in the form of Chingay 2014 tickets, to caregivers and volunteers of Community Hospitals, Welfare Homes and Welfare Centres, long-serving and regular grassroots, and other volunteers who look after the lonely, aged and other beneficiaries in HDB estates.
The Chingay 2014 Commemorative ez-link cards are available in a set of two. Mr. Sarkasi Bin Said’s card design is inspired by the Chingay 2014 opening theme poem by Lianhe Zaobao Senior Executive Editor and accomplished poet, Mr. Pan Cheng Lui; while Mr. Ika Zahri Bin Sarkasi’s design is curated from the 360-metre batik banner, a highlight of the opening of Chingay 2014, hand-painted by 40,000 members of the public over a six-month period. Both cards are enclosed in an exquisitely-designed packaging displaying the theme poem, making it a perfect commemorative reminder of Singapore’s rich cultural diversity and a precious memento to own, for Singaporeans, residents, corporations and foreign visitors.
