Thank you for your OVERWHELMING generosity! All thanks to you, this year we collected 3280 donations for the New2U Thrift Store run by The Singapore Council of Women's Organisations (SCWO).
The Re-Embrace donation drive - SG's first and only donation drive for pre-loved jewellery and accessories ran from Mar 8 to May 8 and was extended for 2 weeks. Our staff helped clean, sort and sterilise the items and they were all dropped off at SCWO to be re-sold at New2U, with all proceeds going to Star Shelter, a temporary refuge for women & children who are survivors of domestic violence.
If you made a contribution to the donation drive, thank you for showing your support for women in need! All donors qualify for the lucky draw with prizes worth over $2000!
Here's the final batch of winners and we'll be in touch shortly!

Following the highly successful launch of Re-Embrace Donation Drive last year, we are excited to announce its return from 8 March to 20 May 2018 in conjunction with the celebration of International Women’s Day.
Re-Embrace Donation Drive is the first and only jewellery and accessories donation drive in Singapore and is a meaningful collaboration between Embrace Jewellery and the Singapore Council of Women’s Organisations (SCWO) and it aims to create greater awareness of the presence of SCWO’s Star Shelter and its work in offering shelter for women and children who have survived domestic violence.
We believe in empowering women and helping women in need – alongside SCWO’s aims and initiatives of providing women with various platforms to promote 'Equal Space, Equal Voice and Equal Worth’, the Re-Embrace donation drive's objective is to encourage more people to donate their pre-loved jewellery pieces and accessories which will then be re-sold at SCWO’s New2U Thrift Shop where all the money raised will go to SCWO’s causes, as well as to the Star Shelter which is a temporary refuge for women and children who are victims of domestic violence.
Last year, we received an amazing 2,909 donations from you, and are extremely grateful for your support! Aside from donating your pre-loved jewellery this year, there are 2 more ways to help our cause!
HERE'S HOW YOU CAN HELP:
1. Donate Your Pre-loved Jewellery & Accessories
You may drop your pieces at any of these 3 locations from 8 March to 8 May:
- Embrace Jewellery, Takashimaya level 3, the Gift Box
- Kai Life, Holland Road Shopping Centre, #02-04
- Embrace+ (new store opening 8 April), Tanglin Mall
We accept all ‘pre-loved’ costume jewellery or accessories (e.g sunglasses, wallets, cuff links, etc) that are in good condition with no scratches, chips or tarnish. However, we will not accept fine jewellery in gold or set with diamonds or precious stones. There is no minimum pieces of jewellery or accessories per donation required.
Donate 3 or more pieces to receive a $5 shopping voucher to use at our stores. Plus, a chance to win lucky draw prizes of up to $3000!
2. Purchase a Handmade Bracelet
We have partnered with SCWO to sell charm bracelets which are handmade by women from SCWO’s Star Shelter. These bracelets are made with waxed cotton threads and beads, the charm bracelets are priced at $25 each and are available in brown, black and blue with a variety of meaningful charms.
There are limited pieces available and 100% of the proceed from the sales of these bracelets will go towards the Star Shelter and other SCWO initiatives. Get yours at Kai Life (Holland V) and Embrace+ (Tanglin Mall).
3. Shed Light on the Cause with Social Media
Help us raise awareness against domestic violence by taking a selfie with your finger on lips – this aims to signify that abuse against women is more prevalent than people think as women are often afraid to speak up, especially when it comes to domestic violence. Post your selfie on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtags, #ReEmbraceSG and #SpeakUpAgainstDomesticViolence
RE-EMBRACE LUCKY DRAW
As a gesture of appreciation for their participation in the charity drive, all donors who donate a minimum of three pieces of their pre-loved jewellery and accessories will also be eligible for our weekly lucky draw, which will take place from 8 March to 8 May 2018.
With prizes worth a total of S$3,000 to be won, two to three lucky donors will be chosen each week from 23 March to 11 May 2018.
