Dr. Janil treated the audience to a delightful storytelling session, sharing a story from The Trampolines that Nadia Built by Darren C. Ong, highlighting the simple joy that reading can bring to everyone this holiday season.

Children and youth attendees also enjoyed the curated selection of books from Amazon shelved within the silhouette of a Christmas tree. Following the end of the pop-up on 17 Dec, these 500 books will be donated to the National Library Board (NLB), enriching the library's collection for the benefit of the wider community.

One of the significant highlights of the morning was the donation of S$100,000 by Amazon Singapore to four notable NPOs: Children's Wishing Well, Club Rainbow (Singapore), Glyph Community, and Fei Yue Family Service Centre. This financial support is a testament to Amazon's dedication to making a positive impact on the lives of young individuals from various backgrounds.

“Getting young people to love reading is essential. Initiatives like these improve community engagement and make an impact,” said Dr. Janil Puthucheary, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Communications and Information & Ministry of Health, Singapore.

Michael Cooley, Director, Public Policy ANZSEA, said, “Amazon's journey began over two decades ago as an online bookstore in the United States. Promoting books and fostering a love for reading continues to be at the heart of our company. We believe that books have the power to inspire, educate, and bring joy, and it is this belief that drives our commitment to supporting reading initiatives that encourage literacy, especially among our young readers.”

Customers can join Amazon in its season of giving by exploring the Amazon x Shop for Good Wishlist campaign to shop for an NPO's wishlist via amazon.sg/shopforgood. Every purchase from various NPO wishlists will directly contribute to helping them fulfill their needs and aspirations.
