Snowman (Christmas Light-up Ceremony 2007)


This is a special commission for NCSS (National Council
of Social Service). It was created and glued as a ornament
centerpiece to kick off a charity event during this year's
Christmas light-up Ceremony at Orchard Road.

The Snowman was the first LEGO ornament that was put
on the Christmas tree by the President of the Republic
of Singapore; His Excellency, President S R Nathan.

CapitaLand Retail Limited, together with Community Chest
launched this charity drive to help raise funds for
underprivileged children. "Building for our future" is the
inaugural charity initiative that will run concurrently in
seven CapitaLand retail malls in four countries (Singapore,
China, Japan, Malaysia) starting 17 November 2007.
Shoppers who spend at the participating malls will get to
build a LEGO ornament for the Christmas tree. CapitaLand
Hope Foundation would then donate an amount for each
LEGO ornament built with selected children charities
supported by Community Chest as the beneficiaries.

Artist side notes: It's a real pleasure to have a chance to
contribute my small share for a good and meaningful cause.
My warmest compliments to NCSS, Community Chest,
CapitaLand Retail Limited for this effort in extending a
helping hand to the needy.

Lastly, I'll like to wish everyone a joyous and blissful
Christmas! Cheers!
