Wellaholic Gives Back in 2021
From 2021, Wellaholic will be doing our part to give back to the community, with your kind help and support. Through Giving.sg, an initiative by the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC), Wellaholic will be choosing a charity a month to donate to. Our January’s charity would be the Cat Welfare Society.
3% Credit Card Surcharge
Wellaholic has been bearing the cost of 3% credit card surcharge. Surcharges are fees that merchants apply to your transactions to help them cover the cost of accepting credit card payment methods.
From 1 Jan 2021, Wellaholic will impose a 3% surcharge for all credit card payments, which will support our monthly month for the Charity of the Month.
You will be glad to know that as part of the Singapore Fortitude Budget, the government is matching donations to charity dollar-for-dollar till 31 March 2021. The impact of your donation will be doubled.
No Surcharge for PayNow or Cash Payments
To avoid paying the surcharge, you can choose to pay either in cash or via PayNow.
Together We Can Make a Difference
Together we can make a difference! Let’s work together to build a City of Good – a Singapore where individuals, organisations and leaders come together to give their best for others.
Giving our best for others means moving away from a ‘me-first’ mindset and being other-centred. A City of Good is where we value people first, and become a Singapore that cares. City of Good fuels the national Singapore Cares movement to build a caring and inclusive home for all, where care is an integral part of our Singaporean identity and way of life.
About the Cat Welfare Society
The Cat Welfare Society (CWS) is a Singapore-based society registered under the Societies Act (Cap. 311 of Singapore). It is also a charity and an institute of public character (“IPC”) pursuant to the Charities Act (Cap. 37 of Singapore).
CWS was formed in July 1999 by a group of friends who got together to help community cats and kittens after being outraged by a newspaper report about 5 kittens being burned alive in a box. In 1999, more than 13,000 cats were culled that year in a bid to control the stray population. That equated to an average of 35 cats killed every single day.
CWS set about to reduce this number with the aim of eliminating it entirely. Our tireless campaigning over the years against the inhumane culling of cats has resulted in a record low of less than 1000 cats put down since 2015.
Over the years, CWS has grown from strength to strength and evolved in its vision and mission. Our work has expanded to include community mediation and frontline intervention, community cat population management, education on responsible practices, outreach, and advocacy.
