"The survival of Buddhism and the survival of the Dhamma are two different things. The success of a Buddhist organization should never be measured in conventional commercial terms but by how well it embodies the Buddha's teachings."

Red Box Project
SPBS currently assist a project organised by a team of students from NTU with the support from Nexus Singapore and Youth Changemakers called The Red Box Project. This project want to make this coming Lunar New Year more joyful and sunny for about 700 less fortunate children across 5 local charities through the Project. Although all the beneficiaries certainly need money, but to have a direct, tangible impact on the children, plus this is the chances where we can put real thought and effort into the donations (in wrapping their shoebox and thinking about what gifts to put inside), rather than simply dropping money into a bag and never thinking about it again.
How to start?
What we need to do are just taking an old shoebox and fill it with little gifts such as toys, stationery, and other fun items that children will love, to a total per-box value of about $15 to $20. Then we can then drop the boxes off at SPBS clubroom or collection points( Near the 3rd floor entrance above Student & Alumni Affairs Center )
As part of the SPBS let us take this opportunities to practice the spirit of giving. Please submit the boxes by 29/1/2010. If you interested to submit at the collection point please aware that the operating hours are from 12pm to 1pm on weekdays from Monday 20 Jan to 29 Jan.
