Folding Hearts printed on the newspaper...

For 11 years, SingTel, a local telco has the SingTel Touching Lives Fund that has been raising funds for children and youth with special needs.

Since 2002, many would have seen advertisement similar to the one below asking people to cut the paper and fold a heart following the instructions. After folding the origami heart, you drop it into any post boxes in Singapore. SingTel donates $1 for every origami heart collected.

Singtel FoldAHeart

This year the advertisements are placed in the Today newspaper.
We know Today Newspaper is a free sheet that also has online access. I was wondering if I print that page out and fold it, would SingTel also donate $1 to the fund. The screen shot above is from the online newspaper.

Then I found out, I don't need to!

Those of you sitting in front of your PC / Mac, iPads, various tablets, various smart phones with a browser, go to:

You can actually fold an online piece of origami heart!
For every fold submitted online, SingTel also donates $1  to the SingTel Touching Lives Fund.


For your info, these beneficiaries will benefit from the donations:
