Digital-RGB-blws seedlings poster -270319 .jpg


Date : 22 & 23 Jun 2019, 10am - 6pm at Blossom Youth Centre

Objective : To promote parent-child communication and family harmony via a fun and exciting birthday party! 

The Power of Love and Respect is Magical!  Children will learn and explore through fun & exciting games and activities. Parents will participate on the 2nd day of camp to make this special birthday party memorable.

Language : Bilingual (in Chinese & English language)

Target participants : 8-12 year-olds

Synopsis:

As a child, do you know how much your parents love you? Do you wish that your parents would listen more to you? 

As parents, do you feel disappointed when you expressed your love to your children and it is not reciprocated? Do you wish your children will share more of their thoughts and feelings with you? Do you feel that the sibling relationships among your children are not so close? 

What are the standards for being a good child? How should parents nurture their children so that the family lives in harmony, with mutual respect, and love towards one another? 

In this 2-day camp with a parent workshop, participants will learn the first 2 chapters of The Standards for Being A Good Student and Child (or called The Guidelines for Being A Good Person, or Guide to A Happy Life) written by the ancient sages.

Through dance/song, videos, games, stories, experiential activities such as “Escape Rooms”, we aim to:

  1. Instil positive values 

  2. Understand participants and help them to "de-stress"

  3. Enhance communication skills

  4. Inspire mutual love and respect towards one another 


Children will celebrate their “birthday” on the second day of the camp. They are to organize their birthday party themselves. They need to go through 6 stations to find out (experience) the message The Power of Love and Respect is Magical.

FAQs about Blossom Home Refresh

I am a first timer; what are the things I should know prior to participating?

About Blossom Home Refresh

Blossom Home Refresh is a youth led project under the guidance of Blossom World Society (BWS). It is an annual BWS flagship event to enhance intergeneration cohesion and understanding through acts of service towards the pioneer generation via ‘refreshing’ their households.

Where are the areas that Blossom Home Refresh serve?

Blossom Home Refresh reaches out to whichever areas that need our help. The areas we have covered include Senja, Ang Mo Kio, Geylang East and Telok Blangah. There is definitely more to come in the future and we look forward to serve more areas island-wide.

Who will I be helping?

Primarily, we will be helping seniors who are staying alone or together with an aged spouse/ flat-mate/ next of kin, in rental units. We also help seniors or families who may have little or no familial support, and/or little or no financial support, and/or disabilities, on a case by case basis, which may be referred from our community partners.

Is there an age limit to volunteer for this event?

As we will be working with individuals that require special care and handling personal items, all volunteers must be at least 13 years of age by the year of registration to take part in this project. Volunteers may be paired with other like-minded individuals to work together as a team.

What if I am a first timer doing Blossom Home Refresh volunteering and have no prior experience?

Don’t worry. We know many of you are first timers. Hence, BWS will be having a briefing cum sharing session prior to the actual event, to provide volunteers with a better understanding of the operation process and befriending tips etc. Through this, volunteers would be more prepared and would attain a more meaningful volunteering experience.

What should I wear/ bring?

Due to space constraint in some units, we encourage all volunteers to travel light.

For identification purpose, a volunteer tee (blue kindness tee) will be provided. We also highly recommend our volunteer to wear light-coloured bottom and covered shoe for safety purposes.

Will there be a briefing prior to the event and what will be covered?

Yes! In the volunteer briefing, we will cover the general timeline and operation aspect on the day of event, Do's and Don'ts, befriending tips which would be useful during the actual day, Q&A etc.

What to expect during the Blossom Home Refresh event?

What will be my job scope on that day?

Typically, you may be expected to do the following:
     • Cleaning of the living room, kitchen, toilet, bedroom
     • Painting of the living room, kitchen, toilet, bedroom, main door
     • Sorting, de-cluttering, organising, moving and disposing of items and/or furniture (may be bulky and heavy!)
     • Fixing new furniture such as metal bed frame
     • Simple general repair such as changing light bulb
     • And interaction with the senior! (We wanna give them social support too!) =)

But fret not! A checklist will be provided to each team as a guideline on the areas that need attention on the day of the event.

May I know the schedule for the actual day?

Blossom Home Refresh starts from 9am to 5pm. Generally, most units would be completed around 3pm. However, depending on the home condition and the scope of work required to be done, some units do need to extend to 5pm. For volunteers who finished earlier, you can either choose to go back home to rest after a long day, or offer your help to those units which are still in progress.
Lunch would be provided and brought to the units around 12nn to 1pm. We encourage volunteers to have lunch together with the beneficiary and the other team members to provide social support and care.Please do bring your own utensils in effort to reduce one-time plastic waste and help save the earth.

What will be provided?

Cleaning and painting set will be provided. Lunch and water, a volunteer tee-shirt and CIP hours (if applicable) will also be provided. Do bring along your own water bottle to stay hydrated.

How many volunteers will be attached to a unit? Will I get to be in a team with my friends?

Each unit is different. Depending on the complexity, space constraint and the amount of work that needs to be completed, around 4 to 10 volunteers will be attached to a unit. We understand that some of you would want to do volunteering work with your friends and we will try our best to group you and your friends together. However, due to the home conditions and the language spoken by the senior, we might have to separate you.

What if I accidentally injured myself during the event? Am I covered by any insurance?

If you have injured yourself, please inform your team leader or any of the district leader/ staff who will be patrolling the ground. For insurance, BWS will be getting a group accident insurance for every volunteers who signed up (with a valid identification number- NRIC/ FIN/ Birth Cert/ Passport number) for the event.

Would there be anyone at home during Blossom Home Refresh?

We will remind the senior/ residents about the event time and date. Prior to the event date, the senior/ residents will be encouraged to be present throughout the event so that volunteers can consult them in the work process such as decluttering or moving the furniture. BWS would also encourage our volunteers to take this opportunity to befriend them and offer them social support.

What should I take note during Blossom Home Refresh?

What if the beneficiary requests something outside my job scope?

Prior to the actual event, a house visit has already been conducted to communicate with the beneficiary on the areas to work on. Should there be any area of dispute, team leaders are to inform our district leaders, who will be patrolling the area. Please refrain from promising anything other than the assigned work especially in terms of monetary. For any special request, please notify us.

Can I take any pictures with the residents of the units?

As part of the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA), please seek consent from the residents of the unit(s) before taking any photos with them and posting them on your social media. Photographer will be engaged to go around the units to take photos. BWS will then post the photographs taken during Blossom Home Refresh on our social media and website after the event.

What should I do with the pest and bed bug?

For rental estates, it is pretty common to have bed bug infestations. Units with such problems would have been identified during the house visits prior to the event by our staffs and volunteers, and proper fumigation services would be engaged either days before the event or in the morning (we try to maximise the day for the senior).

If I do not speak the language of the beneficiary, what should I do?

In additional of providing a better and healthier environment for the seniors, Blossom Home Refresh also aims to enhance intergeneration cohesion. Speaking a language that is familiar to the senior will help to bridge the communication gap and creates a more interactive and fruitful volunteering experience. Hence, we will try to match and assign at least one volunteer that speaks the preferred language of the senior, to each unit.

If the senior want to give me a gift to thank for my work, what shall I do?

We strongly advise volunteers not to take any valuable items (can also be items that hold sentimental value) from the senior. If they insist, please inform our district leader and we will pass the gift to our community partner who is taking care of them.

What should I do if I have any problems?

Should you have any issues queries on that day of event, please notify any of our district leader who will be patrolling the area. Alternatively, you can also approach any one of our volunteers/ staffs who will be wearing a Blossom World tee.

I am from a corporate/ interest club and would like to join. How can we go about it?

How can I proceed with group registration for Blossom Home Refresh?

Blossom Home Refresh is a labour-intensive project and we rely heavily on our volunteers to help as many households as possible. As such, we welcome all group registration to join us and please email us at contactus@blossomworld.sg and we will get back to you shortly.

Blossom Home Refresh is a meaningful project but I have no time to volunteer on that day. How else can I support this cause?

BWS takes pride to ensure Blossom Home Refresh is well planned and coordinated, safe and suitable for the public to join. As a non-profit, non-government, volunteer-driven charity organisation, BWS relies heavily on our supporters to help us fund our work and volunteering programmes.

About the camp:

Sometimes life isn’t easy. Our inhibitions and limitations make it hard for us to think out of the box, solve problems or even foster relationships as we constantly find ways to respond to the many challenging situations that are presented to us in today’s world.

As Little Kindness says, Kindness can be the cure to many of life’s challenges. All it takes is some effort, compassion, teamwork, creative-thinking and a whole lot of empathy to make a difference in others’ lives, and hopefully, in the whole world.

Welcome to Camp Kindness! A little bit of kindness, goes a long way!

今天数码科技时代的21世纪,社会的改变,孝顺又应该如何实行?

现代家长的心声:孩子难教、难沟通、情绪容易失控、玩太多手机电玩; 我时间不够用, 怎么管教…

现代的孩子的心声:爸妈管我太多、讲太多道理,太多补习;请多陪陪我,了解我的需要,不要打我骂我…

童心童愿2天的假日营将会让孩子和家长体验过程戏剧,透过角色扮演,换位思考,设身处地各种情境,了解对方的立场,反思亲子之间的关系。运用论坛戏剧的方法, 激发孩子和家长在相互尊重下进行有意义的讨论,探索并建立适应21世纪孝行的共同理解与实际行为。

学习目标:

  • 让孩子和家长透过戏剧艺术方式学习
  • 表达内心,纾解压力,促进身心健康发展
  • 开发想像力和创造力
  • 培养敏锐思考和创意解决问题的能力
  • 加强沟通,相互的理解,促进亲子感情

Synopsis:

xiao 孝 (filial piety), which consists of reverent, sincere, self-sacrificing, and unconditional care for one’s parents while they are alive and after their death, is one of the basic values of Chinese traditional culture and the basis for the development of the moral person in Confucian ethics. Confucius describes filial piety and reiterates for its importance in creating a peaceful family and society in his book, Xiao Jing, also known as Classic of Xiao. The text was written in 4th-century BCE, showing how filial piety has been a part of Chinese values for a very long time.

However, what does it mean to be filial in the 21st century? How does being filial looked like in the present as compared to the past?

There is no doubt that the concept of filial piety has a significant influence over parenting and parent-child relationship. Parents are concerned that the children today do not practice acts of filial piety despite their constant teaching. Children, on the other hand, are questioning their obedience to parent’s wishes when they are not respected by their parents.

This 2-day camp will take on an active and critical learning approach for both parents and children to rethink what it means to be filial in the 21st century. Using different stimuli and a variety of drama strategies, we aim to inspire respectful, mutual and meaningful discussions with parents and children to explore and establish a shared understanding and practice of filial piety that are essential even today.

 

Children aged 8-12

7 short stories shared by Satya Nadella [CEO Microsoft]

🌾 *LOOKING BACK*
I interviewed my grandmother for part of a research paper I’m working on for my Psychology class. When I asked her to define success in her own words, she said, “Success is when you look back at your life and the memories make you smile."

🌾 *LOVE CONQUERS PAIN*
After I watched my dog get run over by a car, I sat on the side of the road holding him and crying. And just before he died, he licked the tears off my face.

🌾 *TOGETHERNESS*
As my father, three brothers, and two sisters stood around my mother’s hospital bed, my mother uttered her last coherent words before she died. She simply said, “I feel so loved right now. We should have gotten together like this more often.”

🌾 *AFFECTION*
I kissed my dad on the forehead as he passed away in a small hospital bed. About 5 seconds after he passed, I realized it was the first time I had given him a kiss since I was a little boy.

🌾 *JOY*
When I witnessed a 27-year-old cancer patient laughing hysterically at her 2-year-old daughter’s antics, I suddenly realized that I need to stop complaining about my life and start celebrating it again.

🌾 *KINDNESS*
A boy in a wheelchair saw me desperately struggling on crutches with my broken leg and offered to carry my backpack and books for me. He helped me all the way across campus to my class and as he was leaving he said, “I hope you feel better soon.”

🌾 *SHARING*
I was traveling in Kenya and I met a refugee from Zimbabwe. He said he hadn’t eaten anything in over 3 days and looked extremely skinny and unhealthy. Then my friend offered him the rest of the sandwich he was eating. The first thing the man said was, “We can share it.”

*Celebrate Life with Gratitude*
