APPRECIATING PEOPLE AS WHO THEY ARE
The Best of You movement encourages Singaporeans to put ‘People First’ through a showcase of stories and artworks from all walks of life
Singapore, 4 May 2017 – Back for its fourth consecutive year, The Best of You seeks to spread its message of putting ‘People First’ to the audiences of Singapore. It will thus continue to be a platform for all to reflect upon their experiences. In particular, The Best of You hopes to encourage everyone to challenge stereotypes and break barriers with communities such as migrant workers and people with disabilities. It will begin its 2017 outreach with an exhibition in collaboration with Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH).
THE BEST OF YOU 2017 IN TAN TOCK SENG HOSPITAL
A collaboration with a public entity such as a hospital is a first for the social movement. “The Best of You is about appreciation. Unlike our previous mall venues, visitors to the hospital and healthcare staff often experience the full spectrum of life. In one breath, these people go through countless experiences of loss, regret, gratitude, determination and, above all, love. It is truly the perfect space for our 2017 outreach to begin, where people can start to see others through our shared humanity, and not through social labels. We’re very excited to share this spirit of appreciation with the community of Tan Tock Seng Hospital,” said Mr Sai Tzy Horng, consultant and spokesperson for The Best of You.
To Tan Tock Seng Hospital, this collaboration goes beyond being simply a venue sponsor. Inspired by The Best of You’s mission, TTSH has also contributed several stories to the exhibition. Ms Jennifer Yap, Director, Corporate Communications, TTSH says, “We’re very excited for this collaboration with The Best of You. In the spirit of appreciating people, we worked with our community and uncovered many great stories. We hope these stories will help to shine a spotlight on the people behind healthcare and in the community.”
After all, appreciation knows no boundaries. The Best of You reminds us that appreciation includes everyone.
