#Toast2UChallenge

TL;DR – A toast to all essential workers!

Have you seen any of the #toast2Uchallenge video making rounds on social media recently?

SPREAD THE LOVE! Join the #Toast2UChallenge!

Singapore has come thus far since Covid-19 came to our shores. Everyone of us has now adjusted to a new normal. We could not have got here without our frontliners – those in the healthcare, those who screened travellers our borders, those who ensured we have ready stocks of essentials, those who drove our buses and many more. They kept Singapore going and with each of your efforts, we have gotten to where we are today.

As the year comes to an end, let us take time to pay tribute and show appreciation to these everyday heroes. And while doing so, let us also not forget to help those in need.

It’s simple and we hope you pass it on! Propose a toast, say your thanks, post it on your social media, tag 2 friends, hashtag #Toast2U and join this meaningful digital campaign.

For every unique #Toast2U post on Facebook, NTUC Income will pledge $2 to the NTUC – U Care Fund which aims to help low-income members and their families through various assistance programmes to defray their cost of living and children’s school expenses, as well as members whose livelihood had been affected by Covid-19.

Follow these steps! SPREAD THE LOVE!

1. Record yourself “receiving” the drink from the person who nominated you and give a toast accompanied by a note of appreciation in the post. Include #Toast2U #Toast2Uchallenge⁠ hashtags

2. “Pass” the drink on by nominating two others.

3. Tag U Heart (U Heart) for us to keep track of the donations, and remember to make your post public

This year’s U Heart mass activation is a joint initiative by nEbO and Young NTUC, in collaboration with NTUC Income.

The Covid-19 situation here may have largely stabilised, but our experiences over the course of this year have shown that we cannot afford to be complacent.

My toast to everyone for working tirelessly to keep us safe and healthy. With you, this little red dot has shown its tenacity, resilience and ingenuity. Still a way to go but let’s continue the good fight. Cheers!

I am nominating Tan Chuan-Jin and Indranee Rajah to show your appreciation next! I will also like to encourage everyone to join this meaningful initiative by kickstarting your own video post!

A toast with my kopi-o kosong to all our frontline workers, especially those in transport.

2020 has been full of ups and downs. The COVID-19 situation in #Singapore has more or less stabilised, but we are not out of the woods yet. Some light at the end of the tunnel, and we will support each other through thick and thin. Our human resilience will prevail.

I nominate Brother Chan Chun Sing and Sister Poh Li San to show your appreciation next!
