In the spirit of festive giving and cheer this holiday season, City Square Mall has displayed a ‘Tree of Hope and Wishes’ at its Level 1 atrium.

Bring joy and beaming smiles to the faces of 100 underprivileged children by helping to fulfill their festive wishes!
With City Square Mall’s ongoing effort to contribute and give back to the wider community, the ‘Tree of Hope and Wishes’ will be adorned with 100 festive wishes from children living in rental units in the Limbang Division under the North West District. These festive wishes are for young beneficiaries aged 3 to 13, and they include an assortment of wishes such as toys for play time and essential school supplies to enhance their education.
With City Square Mall’s wide array of value-for-money merchandise and services, all festive wishes can be easily fulfilled at the mall. Every gift has been pre-reserved and pre-wrapped beautifully, so wish adopters can simply follow these steps:
- Conveniently scan the QR code on the standee, which will direct shoppers to a microsite where they can select from a list of wishes to fulfil.
- Upon selecting, head to the respective City Square Mall store to purchase the gift. Participating stores include: Challenger, Decathlon, Golden Village, Smiggle, and Toys”R”Us.
- Simply inform the store’s cashier of the selected wish and purchase the gift.
- Present the purchased gift to City Square Mall’s Customer Service Counter at Level 2. Any remaining wishes will be sponsored by City Square Mall to ensure that all 100 children will receive their gifts.
*Update* Thank you for your contribution! This meaningful initiative saw success in fulfilling all 100 festive wishes from children living in rental units in the Limbang Division under the North West District.

This campaign comes in support of SG Cares Giving Week, a movement that celebrates the spirit of giving and seeks to make giving a part of our way of life. This comes at a time where people are motivated to look out and care for one another, through mutual care and support alongside sharing our various blessings with the wider community. No act of kindness goes unfelt, and no contribution is too small. Every act of goodwill counts and every support is invaluable in uplifting the lives of the less fortunate.
