Ribbon Gifting, together with The Salvation Army Children’s Home, invite you to brighten up the spirits of some children under their care.
Major Chelvee Thangavelu is a former resident of The Salvation Army Ipoh Children’s Home, and she is currently serving as a Social & Community Services Officer with the organisation. She holds the children very dear to her heart as she understands their challenges to adapt and fit into the Home after coming from a broken family. Every year, the children would look forward to festive seasons like Christmas as it is a time for gifts and celebration.
However, Christmas celebrations at the Home would look very different this year due to the current restrictions. You can put a smile on their faces this Christmas with the power of a single click to buy them a gift from their Christmas wish list. You can also choose to donate to their cause here. Let this Christmas be a memorable festive season for you and your family. Thank you for choosing to gift with a reason.

Follow the prompt to purchase the gift.
The rest is on us! We will procure the gifts and ensure that they are packed with love and delivered to the kids.
Due to the pandemic this year, many corporate companies have cut down on their budget, which resulted in smaller Homes not receiving gifts from donors as they used to every other year. One of our founding team members, Darren Lee, volunteered at The Salvation Army in Ipoh. When he heard this story from the caretaker, Aunty Swee Choo, he knew the team had to take action to put a smile on the children’s faces this year.
There will be a total of 48 children who your gifts will bless. Of these, 20 are from The Salvation Army Ipoh Boys Home, and 28 are from The Salvation Army Ipoh Childrens Home. The youngest child is aged six, and the oldest is aged 20.
We have already procured the gift items and will package them with care before delivering them to the respective Homes on Christmas Eve. The children will then be opening their presents on Christmas morning. Follow us on Instagram for more updates.
The elves at Ribbon Gifting. We are working closely with the caretakers at the respective Homes to put your gifts in a sleigh.
The gifts were sourced from online shopping platforms and local shops as shared by the caretakers. A small packaging and delivery fee is included in the price of the products to help us cover some expenses. Rest assured we aim to provide the best Christmas experience to the children at the Salvation Army homes.
Yes! Like many others, The Salvation Army has also been affected by the pandemic. They are currently raising funds via their Christmas Kettling. Do check them out here.
