The Community Chest Charity TV Show 2018 is the main signature event of Community Chest 35th Anniversary celebration as we invite our leaders, partners and service users to join us for a special night of entertainment to help raise funds for those in need.
The TV show aims to appreciate the philanthropic pioneers who had steered the charitable efforts of Community Chest in the past years, and involve the younger generation who would showcase how they are stepping up to contribute to care and help those in need. Through highlighting the five social causes supported by Community Chest, the TV show would showcase the continuous and holistic efforts within the community to build a caring and inclusive Singapore.
For the first time, there would be a special pre-show segment to conduct a day activity – Future We Create. Led by the students in the various universities, polytechnics, junior colleges and ITEs, they will head out in the afternoon of the TV show day to galvanise the community through an island-wide innovative electronic fundraising initiative. Joined by local artistes who are alumnus from these institutions, they will participate in busking activities across the island to rally support from all walks of life to care and share. This activity would culminate at MediaCorp where the students, representing the future generation of the caring community, would join in the performance of the opening segment.
