POSTCARD GALLERY

As part of our on-ground and school outreach, we encourage the public, as well as students and teachers in schools, to pen down their own stories of appreciation on postcards. For many, the postcards are a great way to write a personalised heartfelt message to a loved one who has played a part in shaping them. Here are the postcards we have collected over the years that speak of their love, resilience, determination, hopes and dreams.

Thank you! Your submission has been received!

I am grateful to my parents for juggling between spending money on me and themselves and also for raising me up to be who I am today. Without them, I won’t e competing in Pesta Sukan and I won’t be on my way to success. Like the song my mother plays on her phone: “This is me.” The first verse was: “When the sharpest words are gonna cut me down, I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out. I’m not scared to be seen. I make no apologies, this is me.”

Hi, my name is Samuel. I would like to thank my tutor. She has helped me through many struggles in life like me failing every subject in SA1 in primary 4. My dad and mum scolded me many times in the past. I was sad and scared of the real world. I wished I could just run awa from life but when my father had gotten me a tutor, I thought, there goes my free time, but she was fun to study with and learn. She was kind and funny and I passed with good marks in SA2.

If I have friends who are struggling in their studies and I am good at that subject, I would help them if their parents are not well to do and cannot afford tuition. I would schedule my time and make sure I’m free. If my friend is having some issues a home, I would try my best to take time and talk to him and try to make him happy and encourage him to study hard. When my friends need time by himself, I would respect his decision and always keep an eye on him to make sure that he is feeling alright and able to learn well in school.

Personally, I think that there are many solutions on how to be the best of myself. Firstly, I can push myself outside of my comfort zones. Through this, I can learn how to seek and endure pain and hardship in the future. Secondly, I can put up my best behaviour everywhere I go. By putting on this great sense of attitude, people shall start admiring your personality and effort.

By being optimistic and know my limits: Look from different perspectives. Have reasonable goals. Think of different possible outcomes, not just one; manage time properly; always plan ahead. Look for the good in the bad. Learn from where you went wrong; “if there’s one benefit to losing, it’s that you get to learn from your mistake.”; learn from the past Push yourself to do better; have the courage to explore the unknown; don’t stay in your comfort zone.

I am grateful for being mentally strong. Throughout my primary school life, I have been heavily shamed about my hairy body, what I wear and what I do and I have broken down a couple of times to my mother or sometimes on my own. I f you heard what they called me, you would’ve been shocked that kids/teens my age know cruel words like that. I used to be really confident and care less about what I wore or did last time as I was young but now I wear covered clothes such as jeans or sweaters but I gained some confidence and wear short sleeve shirts. In primary school, I used to have low self-esteem and depend on others for compliments and how good I look but from then I learnt that no one will love you if you don’t love yourself. If you see models or instagrammers, their pictures, it takes self-love and confidence to post it because they know that there will be negative comments posted on their pictures.

Dear mother, First of all, I want to thank you for staying strong till this day. Our lives haven’t been easy ever since your divorce. We had to live with no electricity and had to rely on corridor lights to do homework. It was hard for the 4 of us, but it must be harder on you. From a 5-room HDB flat to a rental flat. However, never once did you give up. You continued to stay strong for the sake of us, and I honestly still wonder how you did that. I adore you so much. We had a dark past, but thankfully, we are living our life to the fullest now and are finally moving to a proper home in 2-3 years’ time if it wasn’t for all your sacrifices, we wouldn’t be surviving and having proper education. Thank you for everything, you mean so much to me. I promise to study and work hard to make you even prouder, mom. Things still aren’t going too well now, slowly but surely, we will get over this. I'm sorry for all the things I've done to disappoint you and for being selfish at times. I just want to see you happy and healthy. God willing, our lives will be better in the future. Allah is here with us. I love you, mummy.

I want to thank the construction workers and helpers. Although their jobs are really tough, they still come to our country from their countries/home town (which is really far). They have to work for long hours every day around an average of 80 hours per week. Nevertheless, they had done their parts like constructing, clean, and a lot more. When you think about it, they are earning for a living, for their family and working long hours for less than a thousand. For construction workers, they have to carry heavy things around dangerous job site, which is risky, whereas for domestic helpers, they helped clean the house, do the dishes, cook and a lot more.

My grandmother cooks my favourite food and watches with me her favourite movies even though she doesn’t understand Tamil or English subtitles. When both of them fight, they remind me of me and my mother. At least a day, they forget and forgive. I love and appreciate them.

There is no limit of how much that we can learn from you. I never get to see you in real life but I couldn’t be more familiar with your life story. Through your books and your biography. You inspired mankind not just with your work in physics, but also you showed us that determination and hard work can overcome all the obstacles that would make our lives difficult. So every time when I face difficulties in life, I would think about you. If you are capable of what you have accomplished despite facing all those difficulties, then why can’t I overcome my problems.

To everyone I have met so far, Thank you for shaping me into the person I am today. While I was initially cold-hearted to everyone and harboured a deep resentment for friendship, I have now come toterms with the fact that no one survives in this world alone. And from that, I have built a few meaningful friendships with some of my classmates. I also have to thank my current class of 5N1 for accepting me as one of their own. As a repeater of the O level Examinations from 4E2, I was initially afraid of my new class and their reactions. However, I was accepted with open arms and wasn’t judged by them. With help, I was able to decently up my grades to a relieving level. However, I still have a lot to learn.

Who are the needy among us? Certain elderly, people in poverty, disabled people and blue coloured foreign workers. What could be their needs? Food aid, financial aid, moral and emotional support. How can they be helped? Individuals: They could do something as small as giving a small donation and that could help someone in poverty in such a long way. Government: They can help by raising awareness on this topic by spreading the word e.g. flyers, posters, advertisements.

He was offering us some tissue papers, one for a dollar. I smiled at him and said, “Can I have two, please?” He gave me two packets and I gave him five dollars. “Uncle, thank you for the tissues, you may keep the change,” I kindly told him. At first, looking confused, he smiled and I smiled back. I was happy to see that a little kindness can change something to so much more than expected.

The best of me • People may doubt what you do but they will always believe what you do! • Being humble • Failing is another step to success! • Great things take time, don’t give up • People tend to look at how far they still have to go instead of how far they have gotten • Do what is right, not what is easy! • Being yourself • Dreams don’t work until you work! • Be true, be you • Do what you love and love what you do • A little a day goes a loooong way! • The harder you work, the luckier you’ll be! • Respect is earned, honesty is appreciated, trust is gained, loyalty is returned • If plan ‘A’ didn’t work, the alphabet has 25 more letters

Tissue paper $1 You may not believe this, but there are people who do not have three full meals in Singapore! Why? They might not be well-educated, poor or they may be selling tissue papers to earn a living. Obviously, it is not enough to eat proper meals, right? Well, I have heard of a story that is similar to this. A man lives with his granddaughter and his children. Although he was well-educated with a high paying job, he was unfortunately fired. To carry on with life, he started selling tissue paper packets for a dollar each. However, that was not enough to pay for his bills or for the granddaughter to even go for an excursion with her friends. Another man bought four tissue packets for $4. This was enough for the granddaughter to go for the excursion. See, small steps can make a difference.

Dear Mr Teo, You’ve always helped me with my homework or even other problem sums. From the start of last year, you were also really kind to everyone including me. Usually, most of the teachers just give the homework without discussing it with the students, whether they are able to do it or not. But, every time we say that we have a lot of homework, you will try to lessen the workload you give us. I will make sure that I try my best for the upcoming exams to show my appreciation for teaching me my homework and problem sums. Thanks a lot! I will not let your hard work go to vain!

I would like to appreciate my neighbours, family members who have supported me and my friends. Firstly, my family members. They’ve always been by my side, encouraging me to do well in everything (sometimes they compare my results with their friends’ children which is kind of irritating.) But all human beings are not 10/10. There are flaws but humans can learn from their mistakes. Next, my friends. They’ve always supported me. My friends would tell me my mistake and advise me what’s wrong and what’s right. Also, my teacher who is like a ‘GPS’ which shows the right way. Lastly, my neighbours. When we left for overseas for 1 month, our neighbours helped look after our pet, Ramsey, and our plants, without us asking for help as they have a spare key. I'm willing to appreciate these three categories of people plus my ‘GPS’ teacher.

I can be the best of me by treating everyone equally, regardless of their background. I feel that the world we live in is becoming more heartless as days go by. Killing and bullying happens every day, and that needs to stop! If possible, I would actually love to volunteer at a children’s home, as I feel that those children deserve more. Those children have a bright future ahead of them. At times, I see some mothers with their children selling tissue packets just to earn money to provide for the child. Seeing this made me feel really upset and I wish I could do more than just buying tissue packets. Thus, I would like to be a kind soul by treating everyone equally!!

For these past few years, my tuition teacher has been supporting me along the roads of my life. He has to work several jobs to support his family. Every day, he would wake up early in the morning to teach English, mathematics, and science. After that, he works at GRAB to earn extra income to pay his debts. He inspired me to sacrifice myself for the greater good. Sometimes, one has to let go of certain things so that other things would succeed. For one to succeed, we should be united. There is no purpose if we do not uphold our call of duty in the pledge for ‘justice’ and ‘equality’.

We should not bully and laugh at people as everyone has different strengths and through different strengths, we can help them in a different way! We can always make a difference by donating or selling keychains and donating the earnings to the less fortunate or tell them about ways they can get their financial assistant scheme. Treasure your time with your family!

I can be the best of me by participating in charitable events as these events usually help the needy. I can also try to leave an impact by donating or such. I love to perform and I love to see that my performance leaves a smile on other’s faces. Maybe I can participate in charitable concerts like those in the community centres. Maybe that’s a little too much, maybe I should stick to something small like spreading awareness about poverty through social media and such. I want to help others and really want to help them smile:)

Even if the people have financial issues, I would still respect them the same way I respect others. I will try and give food to some people if I see them not eating.

How to help others with my strengths? Firstly, before helping others, I must be emotionally and financially stable. If I can, and whenever I can, I’d help someone by providing food for them. On the streets, whenever I see homeless people, I am able to give them food and not just money as the money provided might not be sufficient. Lastly and most importantly, I can lend a listening ear to others and sympathise with them. by doing so, I will let them feel that they are not facing their problems alone.

I could use my oratorical skills to spread awareness and come up with a movement to help people who are suffering from urban poverty. I think that most people who are not suffering from urban poverty are not aware of the issue in Singapore. Hence, we should raise awareness of the problem and bring it up to the government. By persuading the government, they can break the cycle of poverty generation by generation, and tackling the core problem. Not to just give them subsidies but to also find suitable jobs for them, or set compulsory courses so that the poor can learn skills to apply for a job that is suitable for them. We have to tackle the core problem by providing them a stable income instead of only giving them subsidies to alleviate the problem.

People around the world and near my neighbourhood might be struggling without proper food or money. Hence, what we can do to help people who are struggling is to use social media and create awareness for them. We can create donation drives or charities to help the people in need. Besides money, we can donate food for them as they may not be able to afford it. So, we, as a community, can help the people in need so that they won’t feel left out and besides, they are still people with feelings and they need more help. Based on the play I watched, this is a good way to raise awareness to schools so that it may impact us teenagers and we would want to make a difference. Thus, we have to step forward, understand them and make a difference to help them.

Also, thank you for making me a stronger person, by helping me believe in myself and making sure I live my life as a good human being:) A hero is not only who saves me but goes through difficult times together with me. Also, you are a hero who is against me and is harsh towards me. This may seem like a bad thing but honestly, this method helped me to learn the values of discipline and resilience. You made me realised reality despite my stubbornness to insist on living in my dreams. Your influence made me become a better human, daughter and a sister. Thank you

Be bold and face your fears. Do not give up even if you have a huge obstacle in front of you. Be brave and let the light in and shine brightly. Don’t compare yourself with others. Don’t complain, accept the situation because not everything is within our reach. Some things take time, just press on! Don’t give up and push yourself.

My personal hero in my life doesn’t know how to fly, have super strength, or wear a cape. She isn’t part of the avengers either. She’s extraordinary yet significant. My hero has known me for my entire life yet there’s so much more I have to learn about her. She is none other than my mother. Everyone as their own versions of their hero. Most people look up to people who are literal heroes or heroines, saving people and defeating villains. My mother doesn’t defeat villains, she encourages me to face my own problems despite her having her own problems. Even though we struggle to make ends meet, she makes sure that I get to enjoy what others have. Even though my siblings are much younger and need more attention than I do, she tries to make time for me amongst her working hours. Being a mother at 22 wasn’t easy on her end, she tries and stumbles, but never gave up to bring out the best in me.

I believe that I have witnessed many difficult circumstances, and from those struggles, my sense of empathy and humility were developed. In this current time, not only urban poverty but also bullying, terrorism, racism and animal cruelty are constants. Although it may not be possible for all these problems to be eradicated, I believe that if each and every one of us show compassion, unity, good morals and even carrying out the smallest act of kindness, the world would be a better place. I will continue to do my part and hopefully contribute to bringing light to this world. This is the best version of me and also the best that I can do.

My strength is being open minded. Being open minded will encourage me to staying open to changes. I am thankful as I am able to live in a comfortable environment whereby food is always present, fans and air-conditions can be used without worrying about the electricity bills. However, in urban poverty, there are people who are struggling to make ends meet. To make their lives easier, I can offer my help and support such as using my social media platform to raise awareness about this rising issue. I am also able to donate money or at least canned food items that might be of a great importance to the underprivileged. By helping the needy, we are not only trying to help them sustain their survival but we are creating a movement where our actions will attract others to do the same. Therefore, we will be able to create a harmonious environment for everyone.

I feel like everyone has their own strength to stand up for themselves when they are getting bullied, mocked or picked on. No one should feel beaten down or as if they are not worth, hence you should also stand up for yourself. Others should also help their friends, classmates, or people they know who are struggling or are in need. You should treat people like how you want to be treated. Hence you should treat everyone with respect, care and kindness regardless of their race, skin colour, religion or how they look.

We can spend time to help our neighbours. For example, if they need education, we can teach them. If they need food, we can always donate food. Best if we can help cook since we have learnt how to do so in school. We could also help do the chores, or call social workers that specialise in helping those in need. I recommend “Skills Future” to learn new skills which would aid them in finding jobs.

URBAN POVERTY It is also seen in Singapore but Singaporeans do not bother to try helping these people. There are very little efforts to help these people. I feel that we should be more aware of our society and care more for these people especially in Singapore where there are higher cost of living. 1. Volunteer at an organisation to help these people -> Collect donations -> Collecting can food etc. -> Raise awareness 2. Provide free tuition / classes in those estates -> Zumba -> Sports activities 3. Interacting with these people -> Letting people know that they can seek help

I realise that I should work more harder for my family and get more rewards and make them proud. Now that they are growing more older, I would like to help out by studying hard and get more money. I also want to thank the government for providing us the FAS scheme and my friends who are always there when I needed help (like to lend money). “Our social status does not define our potential to achieve our goals” Don’t give up!

To those struggling with Urban Poverty, I’m afraid that I cannot provide much material support but here’s a postcard! You can’t exactly choose who you were born as, so don’t demoralise or belittle yourself due to your circumstances. Instead, try to look towards and forge ahead through your own effort and work. Embrace new ideas and find your place in the world. Treasure your family and any good friends you make as they will be the ones that shall support you through a lot of obstacles. Right, I think that’s all. All I currently can offer is sympathy towards your situation and pray that you can live and prosper in this world. Good luck and persevere.

To those experiencing Urban Poverty: It is not embarrassing to receive help from others. It is also not embarrassing to let others know of your situation. Make some friends that you can talk to and you may feel better. If you feel bad to receive things, you can politely reject them or do something for them in return. Study well and you can get a good job, but do not forget about your own passion. Enjoy your hobbies while studying. You can do it! Jiayou!

Urban poverty may ring a bell and sound familiar to us in this modern world. However, certain people do not believe its existence within Singapore. In my perspective, I do believe that there are many of our brothers and sisters who are in desperate need for help. Sadly, we - especially the millennials - tend to ignore what is happening around us and only care for our well-beings. We - as part of the future - must open out hearts so that we remain inclusive to the people around us. Even the smallest of acts can contribute in making the world a better place.

What brings out the best of me is TAEKWONDO Ever since I joined Taekwondo, my life changed completely. I was exposed to martial arts for the first time in 2015 where I went through vigorous activities and strict exams, not forgetting the patterns we had to do. I was promoted from white belt to red belt in 2017, when I quit die to personal reasons. I never regretted joining martial arts as it taught me life skills and morals.

If I see someone whois struggling to make ends meet, I will definitely give them support. As a student, I don’t have an income and will need to give my support in another way. I would like them to know that I am there for them, whether they need help physically or just a listening ear to share about the challenge they are facing. You are not alone! We love you and will help you if you need it. :) Lots of love!

Honestly, there’s nothing much I could do as I also need to stand my ground as well BUT I could provide some moral support whenever they are facing a pretty difficult time such as bills for school and exams. If possible I could gift them some money if I start part-time working. Nonetheless, I can only pray they find some sort of miracle even if they may not exist.

I’ve been aware of the Urban Poverty situation in Singapore from short clips on the television and social media posts, but I didn’t know how it was like fully and now that I understand what mostly goes on in such families, my heart aches in the form of sympathy. It has been a moral value in me to help an individual out if I am able to, be it a stranger or a close friend. So I would be willing to be of at least a little assistance to families facing urban poverty and I would start with those living in the same flat. Honestly, I would try not to be recognised as I believe the act of kindness is more important than having a social status. I wouldn’t want them to feel bad too and that they would try to repay me. I would share food from previous cooking if there is enough to spare, leaving a note to state reasons for doing so with well wishes. :D I also wouldn’t mind making it a point to spend a few dollars a day to buy supplies if it helps them get through the day :> Best wishes!! :D

We should get to know them better and help them create tighter bonds between schoolmates. <3 <3 We should help them to be more open with their feelings so that we will know, which are the areas that we can help out! :)

They don’t have to feel alone or ashamed of who they are or their background, especially their financial situation. What’s more important is what’s in the inside :) Having a good heart & personality is the most important thing that makes you, you.

至您身边最爱的每个人, 就是一个人与人相处在一起的世界,每个人在不同的时间点经历一样的过程: 生,老,病,死。 面对这人生的过程,人的态度可说是因人而异。 兜兜转转,来来去去只不过是两个字: 珍惜。你有珍惜自己所拥有的吗? 时间? 健康? 生命? 家人? 朋友? 很多时候我们都遗忘掉珍惜,仿佛到失去的那一霎那才记起,自古有 “子欲养而亲不在”,现在何方不是呢? 看看你自己,你身边的爱人,亲人,莫等到失去了方才懂得去惜福。
