Giving Love To Local Businesses In Tough Times
The social media-led campaign features over 80 content creators, entrepreneurs, thought leaders, creatives, and diverse people across all walks of life, with the aim to inspire love and generate sales for our local designers and brands at this time. The aim is to encourage Singaporeans to shop local, and freely share their love for their favorite local labels on social media.

“We invite everyone to shop and share their love for local! You don’t have to be an influencer with a large number of followers to share the brands they love. Whether you have 100 or 10,000 followers, we each have our own circle of influence that allows each of us to make an impact, however large or small.” says Tjin Lee, CEO and Co-founder of CRIB, a not-for-profit social enterprise that empowers women through entrepreneurship.

This campaign encourages real people to share their authentic recommendations to friends and family, to support the homegrown brands they support. Whether it’s your favourite fashion or accessory brand, product, restaurant or business service, every dollar spent with our homegrown businesses circulates within the economy, and can help Singaporeans across all walks of life.

“We can all help by sharing brands and businesses we love, using our own social media channels. We can all be brand ambassadors and we can all play a part in supporting local”, says Melissa C. Koh, founder of Makers Inc. Studio which shot and produced the campaign.
“2020 has been an exceptionally challenging year for women, especially for victims of domestic violence in Singapore. Helpline calls reached an all-time high during the circuit breaker lockdown, and many were unable to even find a safe space to make the calls for assistance. We are appreciative of efforts to raise funds and awareness for our vision and mission with initiatives such as #SGLoveLocal, by women’s groups and women-led local businesses, where the vulnerable women in our community may know that their sisters in Singapore care, and are behind what we do. While these are tough times for all, women truly are better together, when we all support each other.” says, Desiree Soh, Senior Executive, Fundraising.
