Jellycat Singapore is donating 100% of proceeds from its one-off online store to TWC2, Transient Workers Count Too, a group which supports transient workers. For a limited time only, Jellycat is bringing back toys from the “A Blast From the Past” range. This includes adorable characters such as Spring Poppet Bunny, Gordon Guinea Pig and Prancing Pony.
A Blast from the Past
This may be your last chance to get some of these designs as the available stock allocated for this drive is limited. There will be no restocks once the toys are sold out. Local delivery is free and sponsored by J&T Express.
The initiative by Jellycat to support TWC2 came about as they were “acutely aware that many people from our most vulnerable communities need more than just a toy to make it through the months ahead”.
All the sales proceeds of the Jellycat toys will be channelled directly to @twc2sg.
Some projects run by TWC2 include The Cuff Road Project which offers free breakfast and an ample dinner every weekday, as well as FareGo that provides small sums to injured workers so that they can top up their transport fare cards for their medical appointments or physiotherapy.
Supporting Transient Workers: Jellycat Collaboration with TWC2
Jellycat is a well-loved brand that is known for its adorable and very soft toys. The products that are currently available in the one-off online store start from about $13 and its large Cosmo octopus is going for $112.90.
On the website, Vanessa Martin, Managing Director of Jellycat SG, is quoted as saying, “We hope that in buying a Jellycat from this collaboration, our customers will see that they bring joy to themselves for giving, to the recipient if it is bought as a gift, and most importantly to TWC2, who support the people who have helped build our nation and kept it running”
