Linen Donation to Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics (HOME), Singapore

25/04/2020

For our first project in Singapore, Linens N Love partnered with the Humanitarian Organization for Migration Economics (HOME), an organization dedicated to supporting and empowering migrant workers who experience abuse and exploitation. 

With transport help from a home-grown logistics provider Travelhorse, we collected 150 pre-sanitized, to-be-discarded bath towels from our partner hotel, Travelodge Harbourfront Hotel and sent them over to HOME. These linens were to help comfortably relocate the migrant workers who had to move out of their dormitories and into temporary lodging, to curtail the spread of COVID-19 in Singapore. 

Linens N Love was glad to be part of nationwide efforts to help society cope with the massive changes brought on by the pandemic.

Linen Donation to Jamiyah Children’s Home, Singapore

22/07/2020

Following our project with HOME, Linens N Love embarked on another donation drive, this time to Jamiyah Children’s Home. We were able to connect Hotel Indigo to the Home and arrange for a donation of linens to support the latter’s care activities. Jamiyah Children’s Home is a safe space for children of all races/religions coming from disadvantaged families. Donations and contributions allow the Home to create a better environment for the children under its care. 

We were able to provide 75 linens through this collaboration. It was only made possible with logistical support from Travelhorse, a fellow startup helping businesses with last mile support.

Linen Upcycling Project in Collaboration with CEPAS and PHG

12/12/2020

In December 2020, Linens N Love and Park Hotel Group (PHG) organized an internal design competition for PHG’s Month of Caring. The event involved PHG’s employees and hotel staff, and aimed to raise spirits and promote togetherness despite the pandemic’s adverse effects on the hospitality industry. In light of this, the theme for the competition was “What a wonderful feeling!”. Out of the designs submitted, two winners were selected and printed on tote bags made out of their condemned linens. 

100 of these upcycled bags were given for fundraising to Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore (CEPAS), a charity empowering persons with cerebral palsy or multiple disabilities to realise their full potential and lead fulfilled, dignified lives.

Linen Donation Drive and Month of Caring with Expedia Group

28/08/21

In collaboration with Expedia Group, Linens N Love organised a 2-fold project – to donate linens from Hotel partners to charities and to host a Month of Caring with upcycled linen items. 

The donation drive involved 22 charities, homeless shelters, nursing homes and veterinary clinics, with logistical support from volunteers at Big At Heart, a non-profit using volunteerism to champion the causes of the marginalized. We were gladly introduced to Big At Heart by National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC). 

Unmatched linens were then upcycled into usables like tote bags, with help from the differently-abled at Bizlink, a non-profit serving persons with disabilities via employment. These items were directly used to fundraise for our charity partners.
