POSTCARD GALLERY

As part of our on-ground and school outreach, we encourage the public, as well as students and teachers in schools, to pen down their own stories of appreciation on postcards. For many, the postcards are a great way to write a personalised heartfelt message to a loved one who has played a part in shaping them. Here are the postcards we have collected over the years that speak of their love, resilience, determination, hopes and dreams.

Thank you! Your submission has been received!

Bullying is bad. It’s just that sometimes people don’t care about people being bullied. They just walk by and don’t stop like a late train, but I will do something different.

If there’s no love, there will be no trust. So treat someone with love and you will gain their trust. People who are sad have a reason behind it, even if they are faking there is also a reason. If someone treats you differently from others, ask yourself why.

Be brave like a lion, not timid like a mouse. Stand up for yourself! Why make others influence you. It takes one to know one. If it’s a problem than I'm gonna solve it! Be courageous. Brave. We are all humans, that’s why we should treat each other equally, not just by our looks. Be the solution, not the problem. Stand up for yourself.

I want to appreciate my mum for taking such good care of me when I am growing up. Cooking nice food for me, buying nice clothes, taking care of me when I am sick and of course trying to work SUPER hard to earn money for my family. I do not hate my mum when she scolds me because I know that I am in the wrong and there is NO reason why I should hate my own mother for that. She is the best mom on earth and words can't describe how much I appreciate my mom! I LOVE YOU!

When I was young, I lived in a bubble. I was from a high middle-class family and did not get to see or meet people from underprivileged families. As a teacher, I get to meet students from various backgrounds. This really opened my eyes to reality. I believe that as an educator, I have a strong part to play in helping the younger generation to be the best they can be. Only under the right conditions can a seed grow and flourish.

When the less fortunate sell something, I will buy it and say, “thank you”. In India, I saw a needy person and I had a set of bangles. I decided to give it and when I did, she smiled and said “thank you”. It’s very sensible of the people who started companies like Foof Bank Singapore. So why wait? Let’s contribute!

Once when I was at a coffee shop, there was this uncle who came to us. Well, this uncle was disabled for he was on his wheelchair and realised that he needed help. He was offering us some tissue papers, one for a dollar. I smiled at him and said, “Can I have two, please?” He gave me two packets and I gave him five dollars. “Uncle, thank you for the tissues, you may keep the change,” I kindly told him. At first, looking confused, he smiled and I smiled back. I was happy to see that a little kindness can change something to so much more than expected.

I learnt that many people are more unfortunate than me and I have to appreciate what I have and do not take things for granted. I also learnt that some people really look normal or blend in the crowd but they are not what they seem. Is the class quietest pupil really like that? Everyone has their own story.
