News: Initiative to encourage sharing of umbrellas during rainy days in Nee Soon Area

As an initiative by Boxrella, supported by the Singapore Kindness Movement and SMRT Corporation and as part of Nee Soon Town Council GRC’s two-year long gracious living campaign, was launched earlier this afternoon to encourage the public to share umbrellas with those who have forgotten to bring theirs on rainy days.

There are times when the rain catches the pedestrians off guard. However, when needed, they are sometimes too shy to ask or offer to share umbrellas. In order to encourage sharing of umbrellas across short distances, Umbrella Sharing floor decals will be introduced at 11 locations within Nee Soon Zone from October 2014 to January 2015. Through this initiative, it is hoped that members of public could overcome their shyness, and neighbour-liness could then be promoted among the society.

Though not something new for some, especially those who often offered to share or assist others during rainy days…
Nevertheless, interesting initiative to promote such kindness towards others.

Hope that even when the initiative is over, such kindness continues on 🙂
