The circuit breaker has kept most of us at home since April, to help contain the Covid-19 outbreak in Singapore.
Eating out is no longer an option, leaving most of us to buy take-out or cook at home.
To keep our minds occupied and to avoid cabin fever, some of us have experimented with cooking and baking at home, testing new recipes and more.
Since you’re already spending time making this Instagram-worthy jiggly cheesecake or bubble tea made from scratch, here’s a way to help feed an underprivileged child while you’re at it.
Ascott aims to donate US $ 200,000 to feed hungry children
Ascott has pledged to donate US $ 10 (S $ 14) for each moment of home cooking shared on Instagram, with the hashtag #StayHomeWithAscott by May 31, 2020.
Ascott, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of CapitaLand Limited, aims to reach its donation target of US $ 200,000 (S $ 282,000), with the support of the basic donation from the CapitaLand Hope Foundation (CHF) of 100,000 $ S ($ 141,000 S).
Each promise, which consists of an Instagram post of your homemade dishes with the hashtag #StayHomeWithAscott, will be used to provide food for a child for more than 20 days.
The donation will support approximately 12,000 disadvantaged children who have been affected by Covid-19 around the world.
For example, you can just post what you’ve prepared for lunch today, share it on Instagram with a public profile, and add the hashtag:
Or if you feel a little fancy and want to cook something good:
And with that, you will help feed someone else while feeding yourself.
