Tin Pei Ling donates Kate Spade bag to AWARE with auction price starting at $500
Posted by temasektimes on August 15, 2012
The bag received much media publicity and attention last year after a photo of her posing with the box was widely circulated on the internet.
Ms Tin said AWARE had approached her in June this year and she felt it was worthwhile to do something meaningful for a worthy cause.
“I thought that since the bag received so much publicity during the last General Election, I felt it could be put to good use to draw attention to a worthy social cause,” she explained.
Since she became a MP, Ms Tin has been working hard to serve the residents of MacPherson:
“In this context, in the course of my work in the community, I do meet a lot of women, from single mothers, sometimes abused wives and even the elderly. I feel for them and I think they need our help and support.”
