At Studio Asobi, we want to go beyond making good art.
We also want to explore how we can give meaningfully through our art.
This is why on top of supporting various social causes such as Room to Read and Oxfam, we also pledge 20% of our profits on an on-going basis to support Mercy Centre’s Trolley Ministry – an outreach serving the homeless in Singapore.
Living in this affluent city of ours, it is hard to imagine that there are still homeless people on the streets, but there are, camouflaged within the dark corners of our sanitised landscape. After joining the Trolley Ministry on one of their night “runs” to bring food and friendship to the homeless, we were deeply moved by how they went beyond addressing physical needs, focusing instead on building loving relationships with those who have no one to turn to. We did not want to forget about the forgotten in society, and hence we wanted to do our part as well.
It is a great source of inspiration for us to know that every vessel we make, and every workshop we run contains a little blessing for someone in need, and all our patrons participate in this blessing too, creating a small but special bond of hope and love among all of us.
Life feels more beautiful when shared this way!
If giving is something close to your heart too, we would love to get connected with you. In the meantime, we hope you will enjoy the stories from all the lovely initiatives we are supporting!
