The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention,” said writer Oscar Wilde. At ItsRainingRaincoats, we are fortunate that we witness many such acts of kindness from everyday men and women. Our volunteers give back by devoting their personal time, energy and skills to spread joy to the lives of our migrant workers. If you would like to join our passionate and ever-growing team of volunteers, there are multiple ways to get involved. Our various programmes that we run from time to time are always taking on new volunteers. Please check out our inhouse programmes here and sign up here if you are interested. The sign up form also includes other available opportunities and will be updated regularly. If you have any special skills that can be beneficial that you think can benefit IRR, please indicate in the form as well (e.g. digital marketing, proficiency in Tamil or Bangla, video production, poster designer, event organisation).

HOW CAN YOU HELP
Volunteering can be done virtually or in-person, and there is no minimum time commitment for volunteer work here at ItsRainingRaincoats. We appreciate any and all time that our volunteers give us as we believe any involvement is a great way to connect directly with the migrant worker community. Individuals can DM us on our social media platforms to find out more on how they can get involved.
DONATE MEALS, CARE PACKS & PRE-LOVED ITEMS
Our migrant worker friends don’t have an easy life here in Singapore. Over our experiences speaking to them, we’ve come to understand that certain specific items can make a big difference to their quality of life.
You can help support our workers through many ways. Preloved items, such as household appliances like slow cookers or kettles, can help them ease their daily lives. Another example of useful preloved items you can donate are bicycles, to help them commute independently from point to point. If you have any preloved items you wish to give away, do consider donating them to our migrant workers here.
Meal or snack donations are also very welcome as they offer a change in routine for our workers, who often eat a monotonous and not particularly nutritious meal of curry and rice three times a day. Many of our donors often reach out to sponsor lunch in the form of bento boxes, or a round of treats and snacks. Care packs also offer some much needed support for our workers, as these care packs can come with a variety of items. If you would like to sponsor care packs, whatsapp us at +65 81018187, and we will connect you with a group of workers based on the quantity you wish to sponsor.
For all donations of meals, care packs and preloved items, please note that we do not expect any minimum quantities. These donations can be ad hoc and are a way of reaching our workers directly.
