GaiGai, the offline dating agency owned by Kollective Ventures, has surprised charity volunteers with a special Christmas gift for all their hard work this year.
It partnered with Cycling Without Ages (CWA), a non-profit organisation that helps elderly maintain a social and active lifestyle by going on trishaw rides. Operations were halted due to the pandemic, and the senior community in Singapore felt the impact.
The GaiGai team surprised volunteers on their usual morning routes with a variety of tactics, including lying on the path and jumping out of bushes. They were then gifted with vouchers for a variety of different products.
Alex Tam, GaiGai’s co-founder, said in a statement: “This partnership with CWA Singapore is close to our hearts because both our organisations serve very different communities with the same goal.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our activities and so we can empathise with the team at CWA and the struggles they have had to deal with. We believe in their work and hope that this small token of appreciation will remind them of the positive impact they have made.”
CWA Singapore resumed its services in April, with volunteers working extra hard to support their beneficiaries while keeping everyone safe.
Capital advisory and investment firm Kollective Ventures acquired GaiGai and Paktor in May for an undisclosed amount. Former owner M17 Entertainment was relieving itself of the subsidiaries with a view to focus more on the live streaming industry.
