Giving Tree 2020 - 27 November - 15 December
Spread some Christmas cheer by gifting some recipients their wishes.
Make Christmas wishes come true with the Giving Tree program that was first launched in 2016. Timothy Wong wanted to share the excitement and glee he felt from opening his presents on Christmas morning. Together with mum and founder of Motherswork, Sharon Wong, he started this Giving Tree initiative. Hence, shoppers get to play Santa and purchase the wish for their intended recipients.
An example of the wishes on the Giving Tree, that will be available online.
Participating beneficiaries this year are HCSA Community Services, Babes Pregnancy Crisis Support and Down Syndrome Association (Singapore). This Giving Tree will be available online.

Christmas Workshops at Motherswork
1. Urban Li'l Wreath Making Workshop - 4-5 and 11-12 December
Add festive decorations to your home with this Christmas wreath your child can learn to make and decorate in a one-hour class.
This Christmas, let your little ones learn how to make festive wreaths, which they can personalise with embellishments and custom plaques. Great for children five years and above, these workshops will be held at Motherswork. Younger children five and above can make their own Rustic Christmas Wreath ($65) in an hour-long session from 12 - 1 pm and 2 - 3 pm by Urban Li’l, and embellish it with touches like red and gold berries and mistletoes, and their own customised Christmas plaques. These plaques may include custom family names for participants who registered one week prior to the event, or standard festive greetings.
Older children above 10 can take this a step further and create their own classic Pampas Christmas Wreath ($70), woven out of dried pampas grass. Likewise, they can also add on any embellishments, as well as the custom family plaque. Both workshops are limited to eight children per session.
