IM Joins An Extra•Ordinary Celebration With Gratitude
Updated on: 12 December 2023
These past few months have been eventful for Impossible Marketing, from mastering trends at Twin TikTok events in September and October to capping off the year with a heartwarming invitation to the Extra•Ordinary Celebration in November.
In a tender celebration of love, hope, and inclusivity, Impossible Marketing had the privilege of attending the Extra•Ordinary People’s 2023 edition of An Extra•Ordinary Celebration – Kaleidoscope of Love and Hope. This event, held at the Ho Bee Auditorium at the National University of Singapore, marked a momentous occasion in the name of charity and inclusivity.
An overview of the event
Extra•Ordinary People, a charity and Institute of Public Character dedicated to serving the special needs community and fostering an inclusive society, hosted an unforgettable evening on Wednesday, 15 November 2023, from 7.30pm to 9pm. The event brought together 11 special education and 13 mainstream schools, showcasing their talents in a night of inclusivity and unity.
But what set this celebration apart was the ambitious attempt to create a record as one of the largest handbell ensembles in Singapore. Over 1,500 participants joined forces for the handbells finale, a collective effort that etched its way into the Singapore Book of Records.
A key highlight of the evening was the distinguished guests of honour, President Tharman Shanmugaratnam and Mrs Tharman. Their presence emphasises the significance of supporting a meaningful cause and contributing to the creation of a more inclusive society.
Alan, the founder and CEO of Impossible Marketing, had a particularly memorable moment during the event: capturing a ‘selfie’ with Mr Tharman himself! This unique opportunity allowed Alan to witness the president up close, making it a rare and unforgettable experience.
President Tharman, along with Mrs Tharman, expressed their support for Extra•Ordinary People’s cause. President Tharman’s inspiring words on pushing oneself to develop talents despite difficulties resonated deeply with the performers and attendees alike – it was a powerful reminder of the importance of determination and resilience in the face of adversity.
Championing CSR, a reflection of Extra•Ordinary People’s impact
In the spirit of encouraging more businesses to contribute to meaningful causes, we are reminded of the importance of corporate social responsibility (CSR). As we celebrate the success of the Kaleidoscope of Love and Hope concert, let us not forget the impact that companies can have when they actively engage in initiatives that support the company.
Being involved in CSR activities helps companies fulfil ethical obligations as well as contribute to society’s well-being. As such, we encourage businesses to explore and embrace CSR initiatives that align with their values. This creates a positive impact on their brand as well as the society they serve.
As we reflect on this ‘Extra•Ordinary’ evening, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to Extra•Ordinary People for inviting us to be part of this impactful, successful event that drew an overwhelming crowd of attendees. Furthermore, the dedication and commitment displayed by the organisation, coupled with the inspiring words of President Tharman, have left an enduring impression on our hearts.
Extra•Ordinary People’s work is a fantastic example of the positive change that can be achieved when individuals and organisations come together with a shared purpose. #TeamImpossible encourages everyone to learn more about Extra•Ordinary People and their impactful work by visiting their website at www.extraordinarypeople.sg.
