Ways to donate SingapoRediscovers vouchers
From next-level date itineraries to a full day of fun with the family and the chance to live it up at atas hotels, SingapoRediscovers vouchers have unlocked a swath of new experiences for travel-hungry Singaporeans. But if you’ve been hustling 24/7 and haven’t had the time to make plans even with the recent extension of the deadline from June to 31st December 2021, you can donate your SingapoRediscovers vouchers to a variety of causes.
With initiatives by Klook, GlobalTix and Trip.com catered to segments of society from migrant workers to single-parent families, these six ways to donate your SingapoRediscovers vouchers will channel your vouchers to a range of great causes:
Note: You will be able to redeem SingapoRediscovers vouchers in increments of $10, and additional costs will require top-ups.
E.g.: Donating a $34.50 experience can be done either by 1) redeeming $30 in SingapoRediscovers vouchers and topping up $4.50 in cash, or 2) redeeming $40 in vouchers to cover the cost fully.

1. Treat migrant workers to city views on the Singapore Flyer

Behind the scenes of our bustling metropolis, is a huge community of migrant workers in Singapore – many of whom have never got the chance to take in the magnificent views of our city. You’ll be able to treat these hardy souls to a ride on the Singapore Flyer – the world’s second-tallest observation wheel.
It’s a collaboration between Klook and migrant worker advocacy group ItsRainingRaincoats, and it joins their other meaningful initiatives like English tuition classes and distribution of Starbucks treats. You can gift this experience for $35 per ticket – a $30 voucher redemption and $5 top-up, but you can impact three workers when you make the same $5 top-up with a full $100 voucher redemption.
2. Gift youth-at-risk a wholesome trip to River Safari

Especially in lower-income households where parents often work multiple jobs to make ends meet, children face struggles in keeping up in terms of studies and in fitting in with their peers. Children-At-Risk Empowerment Association (CARE Singapore) supports these groups of youth in their formative years, providing them with the best platform to succeed in life.
CARE organises educational tours and sports tournaments that their beneficiaries might otherwise be unable to afford or to find time to plan for. Redeeming your SingapoRediscovers vouchers for tickets to the River Safari would be an eye-opener for inquisitive souls as they get to meet cute otters and friendly capybaras up close.
3. Send Thye Hua Kwan beneficiaries on a thrilling trip to Universal Studios

From student care centres and hospitals to meal distribution centres and homes for the disabled, Thye Hua Kwan’s charity work runs the gamut of society. You’ll be able to help out with contributions of your SingapoRediscovers vouchers, which will allow the elderly to soak in the lively scenes at Universal Studios Singapore.
From the New York-like streets to the towering Ancient Egypt-themed monuments around The Mummy ride, this attraction will be an eye-opening experience for seniors visiting this popular attraction for the first time.

For many low-income households, it can be difficult to find money and time to plan for quality time together as a family. With your SingapoRediscovers vouchers and additional contributions, Ray of Hope will be able to sponsor a memorable opportunity for these families to connect over a leisurely tour.
Through the GlobalTix portal, you can secure for their beneficiaries walking tours of Telok Ayer, Balestier and the Singapore River ($50/beneficiary) conducted by bespoke tour agency Quotient Travel for an engaging time together. If you’ve got slightly fewer vouchers left, you can opt instead to gift Big Bus Singapore Classic Tour rides ($39.95/beneficiary).

Nothing’s quite as meaningful as giving kids the opportunity to learn and to be curious – and you can do just that by sponsoring tickets to the Singapore Zoo and S.E.A. Aquarium for the Singapore Children’s Society. Your gift will go a long way to impact their young beneficiaries which include those from low-income households, along with abused and neglected children.
Cost: From $35/beneficiary
