When I was in Secondary School, I wanted to be either a Marine Biologist, or work with the Prisons. I know that those are two very random ideas, and eventually gave them up because I’m not much of a water and sea person, and the pirhanas at the Van Kleef Aquarium and other ugly fish were far too unappealing for my liking; and I couldn’t imagine myself actually working IN a prison. So I did the next best things by taking up diving, and taking a criminology module while in University.
I have always taken a keen interest in Yellow Ribbon and similar initiatives such as restaurants like Eighteen Chefs and Breakthrough Cafe, and organisations such as The Helping Hand. So when my friend mylilbookworm shared with us the initiatives by the Gethesemane Bible Presbyterian Church, and I read the post by our friend Growing With The Tans about the mugs she printed from The Gethsemane Care Ministry (TGCM), I knew I had to share this with everyone.
TGCM recently started printing mugs, and they make excellent gifts for all kinds of occasions, birthdays, teachers’ day, anniversaries, and of course, Mothers and Fathers Days! The mugs range from about S$7-11 each, which is very reasonable for personalised mugs. Take a look at some of the samples of the mugs. Do also check out what Growing With The Tans printed!
Do contact them if you are keen to print some cups and mugs that go to a worthy cause!
The Gethsemane Care Ministry (TGCM) was set up in 2005 by Gethsemane Bible Presbyterian Church. It is a Gospel outreach (non-profit & self-sustaining) to those who are enslaved by the bondage of drug addiction. It serves to improve the life of the residents by providing livelihood and preparing them to integrate back to society. The services provided include: Disposal, Removal, Painting, Cleaning, Transport, and recently added, Printing of Mugs. If you need any of these services, please feel free to contact them at 62816356 / 93372337. Your patronage of the services offered by TGCM will go a long way in helping this ministry to continue to be viable and effective in rehabilitating the ex-convicts. The testimonies of the residents can be found here.
