This year’s Purple Parade was held on 29 October 2022 at Suntec City to support inclusion and celebrate the abilities of persons with disabilities. 2022 marks the 10th anniversary for the Purple Parade, and the first time that CaringSG has participated in this event!
In the lead up to the Purple Parade, CaringSG held an online slogan quest for our members with two categories:
- Category 1: non-caregiver members can create their own short slogans to encourage caregivers
- Category 2: caregiver members can share their self-declared phrase that has always inspired them to remain motivated despite their challenges.
The contest ran until 30 November 2022. Scroll to the bottom of this article to see the winning slogans!
On the actual day of the Purple Parade, CaringSG members who dropped by the CaringSG booth and flashed their eCard were able to redeem limited edition free gifts (tote bag for caregiver members and a CaringSG badge for non-caregiver members).
Members as well as the public could also purchase specially made handicrafts to support the caregivers and youths of CAREcottage families (see their beautiful handicrafts here).
