What: Annual Giving (Volunteering) – Art Jamming
When: 12 November 2016
Participants: Allan, Bi Hui, Candice, Ernie, Jiamin, Joanne, Jolie, Jonah, Junqi, Lixian, Madeline, Phyllis, Shuwen, Rui En, Xin Jie, Xinyi, Yanling, Yeeling
Prior to the event, I have not painted on canvas before. I was not sure what to expect. Luckily we had trial runs and it wasn’t too difficult.
During the events, kids were allowed to draw anything they wanted. And kids being kids, where latest fads catch on them, majority of them wanted to draw the characters from Pokemons, such as pikachu, mega charizard and the likes.
I didn’t want to influence their train of thoughts so I let the kids assigned to me draw anything they want. I was more than happy to mix the paint colours to whatever they want – brown, peach, lime green and so on.
While waiting for the paintings to dry, we played bingo. What started as calm turned into chaos when everyone started shouting “Bingo!”
We ended the event by giving out their paintings and goodie bags. It was a tiring but fun event!
Xin Jie, Participant:
Frankly speaking, I was hesitant & filled with apprehension when I first signed up for the event. I didn’t know what to expect for art & me don’t go well together. I can’t draw for arts and just the thought of having to draw during the art jamming session or draw alongside with the kids drove me nuts.
Came the day which I didn’t know what to expect. However, we were time tight and everyone was doing the best to be efficient to get everything ready. I forgotten all about my “drawing fears”.
Then came the time when the kids arrived, I was introduced to the kid I would be partnering with. I soon found out from him what he wanted to draw: tables, and he wanted to paint in his favourite colour; orange. I had a great time watching him art jam & gave slight help when needed. Sure, there were moments when coaxing him got a little trying & I couldn’t manage well in that aspect. However, what matters more though was we both had fun during the art jamming – he was all smiles & laughter when he did an abstract painting with his favourite colour, orange.
This is my first time in an art jamming event (with RBKD). Being able to interact & bond with children through a drawing-painting session is a unique & refreshing experience.
It could have been others,
But it has always been you.
You & I could have sat out,
But we decided to step forth.
You & I could have stayed away,
But we chose to stay.
We started on a journey,
We would never have imagined.
With such camaraderie,
I know is rare.
We venture in darkness,
Seldom knowing what lies ahead.
Still, we try.
Because even if we are clueless,
For we know we have each other,
For friends don’t let you do silly things alone,
For family means no one gets left behind,
For we are RBKD,
Resilient. Boundless. Knitted. Dedicated.
Even when no one is on our side,
We knew we have each other,
We knew she knew she has us.
For us, for her,
That was enough.
Sometimes, people achieve the unthinkable because of friends and family who believed and stood by them.
Everything that is made possible by RBKD is because we are in this together.
So as long as the ship continues to sail, we will and we can make it sail away even if we need to build it up again.
It was never the easy way out we signed up for,
It has, and will always be,
The road less traveled,
The road worth traversing.
Happy 9th Anniversary, RBKD!
You have been through a lot,
You have survived it all,
It’s time for our lux et veritas.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
Onwards to 10 & beyond, let’s sail together!
Happy Birthday! I love you & you a lot!
Happy Birthday RBKD!
It’s been a wonderful 9 years. Thank you for having me on this journey. May we continue to grow in wisdom, strength, and unity.

Happy 9th Birthday RBKD!
May you always stay knitted and resilient ❤ Blessed birthday!
Yet another year has passed and while counting the numbers, I was reminded of one song:
If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea
I’ll sail the world to find you
If you ever find yourself lost in the dark and you can’t see
I’ll be the light to guide you
Find out what we’re made of
When we are called to help our friends in need
You can count on me like one two three
I’ll be there
And I know when I need it I can count on you like four three two
You’ll be there
‘Cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah
Oh oh yeah yeah
As we count down towards our 10th year, on this 9th anniversary, I hope we can always remember that we have each other to count on, anytime.
With lots of love,
