Admission is free, but you’re welcome to make monetary donations to some of the organizations that’ll be on-site, each supporting a certain cause or issue in Singapore. Some of these organizations such as Actions for Singapore Dogs, Canossaville Children’s Home and Food Bank Singapore, will be selling merchandise, showcase artworks from children and setting up a food bank donation booth.
