We will be organizing a Fund Raising Project to run over 3 weekends (Sat /Sun ) Starting 26 Mar 2011. To raise funds for Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Disaster Victim.
Location: Orchard Central
Date : 26 Mar/27 Mar, 2/3 Apr, 9/10 Apr
Timing: 11- 8pm on Sat and 11 - 6pm on Sun
Concept: Similar to the Ganbatte Nippon! - You Can Do It Japan concept except that:
Instant Printing of 4R and uploading to a "ClubSNAP - Wishes for Japan" facebook
The proposal is to have a few teams of photographers to be located Orchard Centre Mall, and approach visitors, tourists and fellow Singaporeans to write their wishes for the victims in Japan on a blackboard and to have their photos taken and printed instantly. The clients will give their donation of $10 directly to the Mercy Relief Collect can while collecting their photos from a centralized printing location.
The Project will run for 3 weekends (Saturday and Sunday).
Details of Discussion
(1) Each 4R photo will cost $10.
