Happy Tuesday, everyone! We hope you're having a great week so far 😁
It is an out of ordinary day at the office so it calls for a co-dayre with our sister company, @churpsg! Woohoo 🎉
Can you give a guess what we will be doing today?
Strong as a link, strongest in a chain ⛓
Every year, all of us at Netccentric will come together to contribute to the community. It is important for us to help the less fortunate and in a way, ensuring that Singapore can grow from strength to strength so that we leave no man behind!
This is definitely one of Netccentric's core value - strong in a link, strongest in a chain at play as we believe we can go further coming together whether as a company or a nation 💪🏼
This year, we will be working with the Singapore Children's Society to help paint colourful wall murals in Bukit Merah as well as spring clean one of their student care centres! ☺️
Before we head down to spruce up the walls later today, two teams went down last week to scrape off the old paint and white wash the walls.
We were all hard at work as we scraped off the existing art murals on the walls.
Some walls were relatively easier to scrape off as the paint was thick but others, not so!
Nevertheless, we pushed through 💪🏼
With the walls barren from paint, we started white washing with a few coats of white paint so that we could start sketching the murals on a plain canvas 🎨
And with our goal achieved as the walls were painted white, we called it a day! Yay! 🤗
Stay tuned as we bring you live updates when we head down to finish painting the murals and begin spring cleaning the student care centre later today 😉
Hi everyone! Excited to be co-dayreing with @nuffnangsg today for our annual #netccentricxgivingtuesday ☺️😁
Continuing from where we left off, another team went down a day after to sketch the different designs on the walls. Kudos to the team as it's definitely no easy feat sketching the murals 💪🏼
We're now here at the student centre, ready to bring their designs to life! With only 3 primary colours to work with (Blue, Red and Yellow), we used a colour guide to mix our desired colour ❤️💙💛
But first, a briefing to get us started.
After mixing, we are now starting to paint! Our first tip is to paint the background first but as this mural has a white background, we moved on to painting the different faces. Let's get to work! 👦🏻
We will be painting 5 walls today. These walls are along the corridor of the student care centre, leading towards the bus stop and MRT so traffic is really high!
We're hoping these murals will not just put a smile on the kids studying here but also brighten the day of pedestrians walking by ☺️
Everyone hard at work now! Here's one of the walls coming to life as we fill it in with colours 🌈
While some of us are camped outdoors painting the murals on the walls, there are also some in the student care centre helping to spring clean!
Armed with our cleaning essentials, we shall begin 👌🏼
Kids deserve to play, learn and grow in a clean and safe environment so we're glad to be able to play a part in creating this environment for them 👧🏻👦🏻
Many helping hands make work light 😁
Come along as we take you on a tour of the Netccentrics hard at work, painting 😎
We're halfway there already, can't wait to see our final artwork!
Even amidst the task ahead, us Netccentrics always remember to have fun 😌
Sometimes, a simple thank you makes everything worth it! We received this lovingly hand made card from the kids of the student care centre ❤️
The Big Reveal 🎉
WORK HARD ✏️
Our first mural encompasses the value of working hard, to teach the students that nothing is impossible as long as they work hard for it ☝🏼️
NEVER QUIT ⛰
We also want to remind the students that sometimes, it takes a while for their efforts to be reciprocated. That's why it's important for them to never quit! Rome wasn't built in a day 💪🏼
BE HAPPY 😁
On top of hard work and resilience, another important value is to always be happy! No matter what comes their way, we hope that at the end of the day they will be able to smile through it 😊
STAY ROOTED 🌲
Another message to the students is for them to stay rooted. Be humble in every circumstance and stay true to themselves. ❤️
Lastly, we pour the most effort and hardwork into the last and most creative mural...
DREAM BIG 💭
The most important value we'd like for them to stick to is to dream big! They're never too young for ambitions. The world is their oyster and as long as they put their mind to it, everything is possible! 👍🏼
THATS A WRAP! 👏🏼
We wouldn't have finished all five walls without each and everyone who played a part today 😊 It was a fun filled afternoon that saw us bonding while having fun, coming together for a wonderful cause!
Hope you've enjoyed reading our live update of this year's edition of Giving Tuesday! We'll see you again next year 👋🏼
