“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” –Aesop

From a casual discussion during Business Unit meeting of one faithful Friday the 17th of September 2021, it birthed an idea to want to contribute back to the society. The thoughts of "which country should we help", "how can we make an impact", "who are the people that has the biggest needs" came by, which also leads us questioning ourselves in "we won't be able to raise much", "we are a small office", "what if we fail in raising any awareness". But, truly, charity begins at FLEXIMers hearts, and we decided to start off from home base - sunny Singapore. 

Despite the media portraying Singapore being a world class nation, filmed as crazy rich Asians or being one of the most expensive cities to live in the world, nevertheless, poverty and homeless people are real! FLEXIMers decided to support the cause of women or children as it is central of each family. Daughters Of Tomorrow is chosen as it aims to support underprivileged women in the society towards employment by providing training, child minding support, employment bridging services, resources and befriending. 

The objective is twofold for the month of November 2021: To create awareness for underprivileged women by running 400km and to raise funds for them. Alongside the partnership and encouragement from FLEXIM GmbH management whereby for every dollar collected, there will be two dollars added into the pot, we initiate our journey with tiny faith of a $1000 target and unfit physical bodies. Lo and behold, the responses from friends, customers, family members were optimistic leading to final figures of $14,265 raised, more than 350km ran / 150km cycled! 

Eventually, FLEXIMers gained healthier bodies, met the goals, and found it incredibly fulfilling to be playing a part in the society. We always remember that there are people far less fortunate than ourselves, and may kindness continue its ripple effect to others.
