「 LOVE.CARE.LIFE 」
Founder: YUKI NG黄绣丽
Ms YUKI NG born in the small town of Pontian, Johor, Malaysia.
YUKI grew up and studied in Kampong Pontian Kecil, then went on to Kuala Lumpur at the age of 17 to pursue a professional photography course while working at a bridal salon in Johor Bahru in order to save money.
Upon reaching 19 years old, she went on to Singapore's Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) to further pursue her studies, majoring in Visual Communication, while also working at the same time.
She was one of the few who graduated with top distinction and won a scholarship in Visual Communication & Graphic Design as well as a number of other art and design awards. The school offered her a scholarship in University of Western Sydney, Australia, but after a few weeks studying there and encountering a number of various problems, she decided to drop out and go out to society to work. She subsequently became a designer and has done various magazine layouts, advertisements, product packaging, prints, and cartoon design. She has since settled down in Singapore and became a Sales & Marketing Consultant.
She wishes to start a campaign to help people suffering from depression and trauma resulting from negative relationship experiences, conveying hope and encouragement to these deprived victims.
- Theme of campaign -
2013 ( The Beginning ) is the preparation year for this public campaign, its aim is to care for patients who are traumatized, facing depression, and/or with suicidal thoughts.
I hope everyone would be able to sympathize with these people who have experienced tremendous amounts of pressure, leading them to become extremely emotional and negative. They do not deserve to be subjected to discrimination, condemnation, criticised, nor ridiculed. Instead, I want to appeal to everyone to give them your encouragement and patience in order to help them stand up positively in the face of adversity. Do lend a helping hand so that they will be able to stay strong for the hopeful future and lead a wonderful life.
Post-traumatic stress, depression, suicidal tendencies, these are not terminal illness, they are symptoms shown after a person has gone through huge emotional blows and pressure, some are easy to spot, some choose to hide their emotions and suffer silently inside. There are few who recover easily in a short period of time, while for the most, it is usually fatal and they might never recover without receiving proper care. There is never a definite period for recovery.
Most of the time, it is difficult to distinguish the victims, so they often go unnoticed. Some would also choose to ignore even if they are able to see something is wrong.
Only the person itself, and his/her family would be able to feel and help him/her move on, they play a much bigger role. The most pitiful ones are those who have either been given up on, or has given up him/herself, and in some cases, committed suicide.
*We would appreciate it if any specialists, psychological counsellors, and clergies could give us more information as well as guidance in this area.
- The spirit of 「 LOVE.CARE.LIFE 」 -
"Stop, Look, Listen" 3 steps of Love
STOP - Stop giving negative stares & using hurtful words.
It will just add insult to injury to these helpless people who are already badly traumatized and have suffered greatly - but still constantly living in shame and fear, feeling inferior.
LOOK- Pay more attention to the heartbroken.
They are very vulnerable, in need of people like you & I to treat them with patience and sincerity.
LISTEN - Listen to their thoughts & opinions - the voice of their hearts.
Only then will you be able to help them ease their pain, accept, and let go, bit by bit.
Start by starting!
I hope everyone can help promote love and goodwill so that we would all be able to live in a world full of love, a world without strangers.
You, who is lucky enough to avoid such heart-rending & traumatizing experiences, upon looking at the plight of the less fortunate... I hope you would be reminded that you should cherish & love your life more.
No donation is needed. We just hope to promote and spread the message and love of 「 LOVE.CARE.LIFE 」 through T-shirts.
And when your family, friends, colleagues, or classmates meet with difficulties, we will listen and accompany them to ride out the storm! This is the spirit of「 LOVE.CARE.LIFE 」.
* Sponsors needed from Singapore and Malaysia for printing T-shirt, packaging and related cost.
Are you able to see that the greatest gift isn't money nor looking beautiful, but to be "alive"?
Started by YUKI, using the power of social media to bring together both friends and readers to promote the move of 「LOVE.CARE.LIFE 」especially during this economic downturn that is causing many people to live in stress & frustration, she hopes that by sharing her story, people will treasure and cherish life much more than ever.
* We are open to all life case studies & testimonials from readers to show their support to other readers who are suffering and traumatized.
I hope all of you can pick up your keyboard and post an encouraging comment in YUKI NG's personal blog to tell the less fortunate to stay strong and don't give up on the struggle. I hope all you strong and caring people out there would help others realize just how fortunate they are, to cherish what they have, and not to take things for granted.
When you think you have reached life's end, please remember to look back at your family and friends who will look at you and say: "Would you be willing to help me lead a good life?" If even strangers are concerned for you and are willing to lend a helping hand, how could we not give ourselves a chance to live on?
- 「 LOVE.CARE.LIFE 」 Charity Bazaar -
A passionate brand will begin its charity sale of 「LOVE.CARE.LIFE 」T-shirts in Singapore & Malaysia.
All proceeds received will be donated to non-profit charity organisations after deducting operation expenses.
* To carry out this awareness campaign we’d like to appeal to the companies in Singapore and Malaysia for sponsorship to show their support.
* If you think this campaign is tied up with your campaign/organizer, feel free to contact us for a discussion on co-operation & look towards benefitting the community together.
* Campaign logo and T-shirt designer volunteers are wanted.
This campaign is inspired by the 「 LOVE LIFE 」campaign in Taiwan that was initiated by 黑人 ( Hei Ren ) also known as 陈建洲 ( Chen Jian Zhou ) that is aimed to promote the important values of loving life in this shirking economy where people are depressed and hopeless by sharing stories of the strong-hearted young cancer patients’ true stories. They often helped alleviate the pain of the children by visiting them whenever they had time off work to give them joy & laughter. This has deeply moved YUKI ever since.
Don't we also have wonderful people around us working hard in hopes of laying a better foundation for future generations, as well as young boys & girls starting their brand new lives positively with a peaceful and stable family? But because of a sudden turn of events, some of them might be dealt a blow so serious that they have to completely "rewrite" their script of life. After all the hard work and efforts everyone has put in, what does one really want in return? Isn't it just to live life happily?
