Singapore contributes to record-breaking book donation
March 31, 2014
The 2013 International Accountants Day was not just the largest gathering of accountants in Singapore, but also a record-breaking day!
The CPA Australia, Institute of Singapore Chartered Accounts (ISCA) and the Singapore Accountancy Commission organize the annual event, which gathers professionals from the accounting and finance sectors. In 2013, 3,000 people attended to celebrate their work, enjoy live music, games, competitions and, most importantly, to give back to the community.
A total of 3,000 books were donated for underprivileged children cared for by various Singapore-based charities. Some people even came with suitcases of books. The event's success secured a place in the Singapore Book of Records for the “Most Number of People Donating Books at One Location” in 2013.
Crown Singapore provided a collection and delivery service of all of the books to the various charities. Crown Singapore is proud to be affiliated to such a good cause.
