And… it’s a wrap at SGH! Thank you so much everyone for your generous contributions! In total, your $10,000 helped serve more than 1,600 cups to many many tired but grateful SGH staff.
Yesterday, we also witnessed a dedicated bunch of service crew in action at SGH’s The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, enthusiastically serving the free drinks to our frontline healthcare workers. Thank you The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf for specially assembling a team of District Managers for this giveaway!

Update 13 Feb 2020
First, a BIG thank you again to everyone for your generous giving!
Since the close of the campaign, we’ve worked with the awesome HR teams of some of the hospitals to see how we can best distribute the coffee treats to the frontline workers, especially those who are super pressed for time. We’ve also worked with The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf to sort out all the finances and logistics. And guess what? They’ve decided to sponsor additional cups of coffee/tea! 😀
The next round of coffee giveaways will start at SGH at 7pm tomorrow (14 Feb 2020, Fri).
Stay tuned for details on further rounds at other hospitals!
Finally, we’ve still been receiving many requests to give to this campaign, and heard that some are disappointed that it’s over. We’re so heartened by your desire to chip in, and we hope that you’ll continue to find avenues to do so through other initiatives or your own! To a kinder and more giving Singapore!
Team Operation #BoosterShot
Update (12 Feb 2020)
Wow. Singapore, you’re amazing – we just raised the target a couple hours ago and we’ve already hit it ?
After much discussion and debate, the team has decided to close the campaign. We’ll use all these funds to extend our reach to as many healthcare institutions and workers as we can – stay tuned for more detailed updates.
One major consideration in ending this here is that we’d very much like to support other worthy initiatives that go towards supporting healthcare workers in other ways, and also other vulnerable groups who really need our help now.
Thank you Singapore. Our national pastime may be complaining but we all chip in when the call is sounded! #sgkampung
We’re so proud to be part of this community that has shown that it can step up in times of need. Let’s make this a lifestyle, regardless of the season!
Over the past week, many healthcare workers have worked over 100 hours battling nCoV. Some cannot go home to their families after, have had their holidays cancelled, etc. And the work continues today.
In light of this, my group of friends – and their friends, raised ~$4000 from 8/2 to 9/2 to treat healthcare workers to a cup of Starbucks or Coffee Bean.
In just a day, at Tan Tock Seng Hospital/NCID, the Coffee Bean staff have been working extremely hard to serve the healthcare staff claiming their free cup of coffee, and about 500 cups have been claimed so far. The healthcare workers are so so so touched and we thought we could open this up to anyone else who would like to contribute! We are also now hoping to expand this to appreciate healthcare workers* at other hospitals ?.
We’re using Ray of Hope as our platform to fundraise for this initiative. $7 will buy a cup of coffee for a healthcare worker. So please donate generously! 100% of your donation will go to buying the coffee! They even cover the credit card fee that is usually deducted from donations when you donate online through other crowdfunding platforms.
We will post updates via this platform for everyone who has chipped in, including proof of receipts.
*Note: This will go to Healthcare Workers only, i.e. doctors, nurses, paramedics and other frontline staff.
**We’re facing slight issues with the cache on your mobile browser. You might not see your donation reflected immediately on the campaign page. Rest assured that as long as you get a thank you email from us, your donation went through. It might take a few mins before you refresh your page to see your donation under the donor list.
