Project Alpha

Is our first fundraising round for the First Aid Project with the primary goal of getting first aid kits to non-profit schools in underdeveloped regions.


Being our first fundraising project I thought it apt to name it "Project Alpha". For our first project, I started in March of 2021 to reach out to non-profit schools to try and get partners before beginning fundraising. Through this period of time, we had several meetings with non-profit schools to encourage them to foster a partnership with the out-group. This was no easy feat as it took work to get the trust of these schools, and so I reached out to many schools and only heard back from a few of which even fewer were able to sustain a partnership.

Once I had established the partners I began work on preparing everything to begin our fundraising scheme this included preparing materials for door-knocking donations such as spreadsheets and such. I also had to prepare ways for online donations like our gogetfunding website ( After this point, I took a two-month hiatus to focus on my IGCSE exams with the goal of beginning real fundraising in June.

Once it came to June I spent a large part of my summer break going door-knocking asking for donations down my block. I asked all my friends to share the online fundraiser through social media as well as family members to spread the word. In order to get some corporate support. I reached out to an employee at Johnson and Johnson in order to get a possible corporate sponsorship, whilst this had not worked for this project specifically but I had managed to get our online fundraiser on the Johnson and Johnson company newsletter.

By August 2021 I had reached the fundraising goal of $8,000 and actually beat it by $500. Once I finished fundraising I reached back to the partners to organize sending the donations and figuring out the logistics of purchasing and transporting the first aid kits.

After taking a break for exams I had returned to start fundraising in June 2021, this began with doorknocking and proceeded with more social media outreach

In order to increase the audience of the fundraising operation, I had started the online fundraisng platform. This was done through a gogetfunding and allowed me to reach people out of Singapore.

At this point, I had reached my fundraising goal and beat that as well with $8,500, after which I reached back to the partners to transfer the donations.
