Pony Day Out

Given her love for ‘My Little Pony’, it was little wonder Arifah dreamed of having a day playing with ponies and to have the ponies she has seen on television come alive.
After much planning, Make-A-Wish Wish Granters came up with the perfect way to help make Arifah’s wish come true. The day started with Arifah decked out in ‘My Little Pony’ apparel from head to toe and building her very own pony at Build-A-Bear Singapore. She had lots of fun fluffing up, brushing, choosing pretty clothes and finally registering the "birth” of her very own personalised pony.
Arifah was then in for another surprise after lunch. Thanks to Gallop Stable, Arifah together with her family and friends had the wondrous opportunity to interact with real ponies! They started with a guided tour around the stable, followed by a chance to groom, and to finally ride those beauties. Arifah enjoyed her ride so much that she went on a second round!
Her party which was themed ‘My Little Ponies’,  was held outdoors and included many fun activities such as face painting, freshly made popcorn by Garrett Popcorn, fun photo booth by Madebymoo, a magic show and balloon sculpting by Tommillusions, cupcakes and a cake with Arifah's name and favourite pony character on it!
It was certainly a day to remember for everyone, especially for little Arifah who exclaimed that her day was, “Awesome!"

Santa Run for Wishes &
Annual Christmas Party 2015

The biggest Christmas run in town happened on 28 November, with participants running along Palawan Beach in a 2KM family fun run route or 5KM route. The event was graced by our Guest-of-Honour, Mr Tan Chuan-Jin, Minister for Social and Family Development.

After the run, participants were also treated to exclusive entry into Universal Studios Singapore where more fun and excitement awaited. They experienced cutting-edge rides, shows, and attractions including Puss In Boots' Giant Journey, Battlestar Galactica: HUMAN vs. CYLON™, TRANSFORMERS The Ride: The Ultimate 3D Battle and more! There were many Santas spotted in the crowd, including a Nutcracker family and our Best-Dressed winner for this year - Ms Jessica Parker, who turned up as a Christmas Snow Globe.

On the same day, some 1,400 Wish Children and their families also celebrated a magical Christmas at the Make-A-Wish Annual Christmas Party at USS. There were plenty of surprises, thanks to the generosity of the Santa Run runners who brought presents like toys, books, clothing, electronic items, LEGO, and stationery.  Many expressed their reluctance to leave when it was time to head home.  Indeed, it was an enchanting night filled with laughter and joy, especially for the beneficiaries who visited USS for the first time .

Jamming with Art

In order to be a little bit different, one has to think out of the box sometimes. With this in mind, Alexandra decided to invite her closest friends to a Birthday Art Jam @ Arteastiq, a boutique teahouse and social painting studio at Mandarin Gallery.  

The motto of Arteastiq - “Life is about using the whole box of crayons” means a lot to Alexandra. While her friends enjoyed the painting session, they were also encouraged to make donations to Make-A-Wish instead of bringing gifts. 

The Birthday Girl likens her life to be blessed with the ability to “use a whole box of crayons”, and empathizes with those who cannot. In her own little way, Alexandra hopes to do more for the less fortunate and has even encouraged her friends to give back to the community.  It was not surprising how many different art pieces were produced with a little imagination and a lot of fun. In the three hours they shared, everyone felt contented and grateful to be able to contribute to a good cause and make a difference in a child’s life. 

“It feels great giving back to the community and it is so easy!” We couldn’t have said it better, Alexandra.
