Weekly Round-Up

In our weekly round-up blog posts we give our supporters a run down of the past week and what we've been up to. 

On Monday, we attend the Societal Leadership Summit at Singapore Management University. The Summit was all about how organisations can do good in a sustainable way. We oversaw a panel discussion with Alfie Othman, the Executive Director of raiSE and Veronica Colondam, the Founder and CEO of YCAB Foundation. 

Also this week, we got to visit the new Google offices that officially opened this week. Prime Minister Lee Hsein Loong opened the two new office blocks at the Mapletree Business City II in Pasir Panjang this Thursday.

They were previously located at Asia Square Tower 1 in the Central Business District, but moved for more space and to accommodate more people. The Asia-Pacific business headquarters boasts free breakfast and lunch for employees, as well as a 24/7 gym, salon, nap room and numerous cafes and pantries. 

We had a meeting with GoogleGive about potentially working with the organisation to gain more awareness for New Life Stories, through initiatives like Google Grants and 'Adwords'. 

With our social media this week, we posted our first 'Carousel' ad on Facebook with a selection of our favourite inspirational quotes that we have put up in the past month.
