#SINGAPROUD - A fundraising initiative by local, Singapore brands!
Join us for some guilt-free shopping as we embark on part 2 of our #SingaProud fundraiser! We're aiming to raise at least $1000 for our chosen beneficiaries, Uncle Khoe's K9 & Guinea Pig Rescue Singapore, and we need YOUR HELP! Together, we can help feed hungry bellies and ensure these beautiful animals have the medical aid they need.
You can select one Handmade Making Mermaids bowtie or set of hair ties (there's only 1 of each!).
On this page, we're featuring May, founder of Making Mermaids!
1. What inspired you to start Making Mermaids? Are you secretly a mermaid?!
Opps, got caught!
I have always love and fantasizes about mermaids and their tails. I started out Making Mermaids with the plan of being an entertainmer for kids and also to do mermaid make-over for the little girls.
One day I chance upon some beautiful mermaid scales fabric and decided to try and make something out of it for my dog. This was when Ive gotten feedback from friends asking if I am selling those bow ties. And soon I decided to expand the product line including human accessories such as earrings and keychains.
2. The past year has been so challenging for so many, yet you so generously donated over 30 items to raise funds! What made you decide to come on board?
The past year has been challenging for many, which is exactly why the welfare groups will require even more fundings to keep the animals full and healthy! While I couldn't volunteer actively physically, I hope those bowties can make a pet parent happy as well as contribute a little to the less fortunate animals.
3. Tell us more all about your beloved furkids!
I adopted my shelter boyfriend, a Singapore Special - and his name is Tui, he was a chunky boy with mesmerizing eyes. A very gentle giant who loves car rides and beach. Unfortunately, he had crossed over last December due to cancer. But he would love me to continue helping animals in need.
4. What can we look forward to seeing from you in 2021?
I have since slowed down Making Mermaids due to family commitments, and also with covid, the pet events were ceased. I am currently providing Animal Communication services (@pact.sg) with hope to help more owners and their senior/ critically ill pets to fulfil any last wishes or pass on messages so both parties can embrace the next stage positively.
*Please note that for bowtie number 16, shipment will be after Sunday, 11 April 2021
