Will you help keep our space?

Since August 2019, Tak Takut Kids Club (TTKC) has been a community space for children and youth with diverse needs and backgrounds in Boon Lay Drive. This relational place-making work aims to co-create a safe and happy kampung for children to grow up in.

 

Every day at TTKC can be described as ‘same, same but different’. Kids stop by to meet friends, get homework help, run barefoot in the grass, resolve quarrels, observe garden worms, dance, learn to juggle, practice badminton, make stuff, or just sit and chat.

 

At times, life throws us a curveball. When kids are shattered because of a tough time at home or in school, we provide them with comfort, support, and assistance. TTKC works with Comlink@Jurong West and is an important connector to bridge the communications between children, parents, schools, social service agencies and other stakeholders.

Play Play Only Lah Rubber Band Ropes
by AJ and Auntie Rabiah

Auntie Rabiah is the oldest child at Tak Takut Kids Club, working as a part-time cleaner while having fun interacting with the children. In her spare time, Auntie Rabiah helps us save maintenance money by scavenging newly discarded carpets, furniture, pots and pans in the neighbourhood. Her favorite tagline line is ‘play play only lah!’
 

In this year’s fundraiser, she is roping in TTKC's special projects manager and volunteer, AJ, for help this time, making “play play only!” rubber band skipping ropes in that classic red colour. Remember playing Zero point? If you would like to support Auntie Rabiah’s part-time income and get your hands on this nostalgic item, you have to act fast!

Live Auction @ Lucas the Show
by Lucas Lee

When we first met Lucas outside TTKC, we were astounded by his natural ability to connect with the folks in the neighbourhood regardless of their race and age. Armed with a gregarious personality, fondness for Hokkien opera, and a shopping trolley full of groceries to share with the community, Lucas reminds us of a time traveller from the swinging 60s.

As one of the most giving member of TTKC, Lucas is contributing to the fundraiser by reviving Lucas the Show, a live auction platform that he developed when he was in primary school. Expect lots of fun and laughter as he promotes yummy homemade cookies, hummus, muffins, and lots more produced by our other crewmates! 

First live auction: 23 Nov, 7pm (view here)

Second live auction: 10 Dec, 8pm (view here)

Kindness rocks!
by Yvonne Ng and her two children

It is unfortunately not possible for Yvonne to volunteer her time at TTKC given that she stays far, much as she thinks it would be such a meaningful thing to do on a regular basis. She'd love to contribute in some way so check out her creative and colourful contribution in this campaign!

 

Recently, she had handpainted some rocks at home with the help of her two children. The painted rocks ranged from cute animals to kind messages, landscape sceneries to random/abstract drawings. She hopes the handpainted rocks could be put to some good cause and wouldn't it be awesome if it can be used to raise funds for TTKC? Spread the year-end cheers and let the kindness rock!

 

$10 / rock includes postage

Order closes on 19 Dec
