An Incandescent Love for Life

It was indeed a night of song, dance, passion, joy and laughter as we are dazzled by 83 students from 9 schools under the leadership of Hwa Chong Institution’s Project Edelstein team, with more than 500 in the audience and raising close to $4,000.00 for our life-saving cause.

This is indeed a big win for the BMDP education team who have established partnerships with more than 23 schools and junior colleges, including Anglo-Chinese School, Raffles Institution, Singapore Polytechnic, National Junior College, LASALLE College of the Arts and School of the Arts Singapore.

The awesome Project Edelstein team has been sweeping the Citi-YMCA Youth For Causes (YFC) awards year after year for the past 2 years, in support of the Bone Marrow Donor Programme (BMDP). While engaging with the backstage crew and student performers, a sense of pride and accomplishment permeates the air as they are all felt great for being part of the purposeful and meaningful evening.

Speaking about the project, student team leader, Bryan said, “On top of academic, the Matchstick Concert gave me an exciting project to share that combined leadership, project management and a life-saving cause such as recruiting bone marrow donors”.

We look forward to more exciting things to come from the student team as Bryan, the project team and all the amazing performers move on to the next stage of their academic journey!
