Last night, the Save Atiqah campaign announced that they had reached their objective of raising S$50,000 to help cover Iqah’s legal fees. They have achieved this goal a lot quicker than everyone had expected, and so big huge thanks go out to everyone who has support them and donated to help Iqah!
All this support for Iqah is cause for celebration, and the Second Chances Flea Market will go forward as planned. It’s tomorrow, 2pm – 8pm at The Pigeonhole (52/53 Duxton Road), and we hope to see you all there!
We will continue to sell Second Chances wristbands, badges, photo prints and those who have pre-ordered their cupcakes can meet us to pick them up. We will also be providing postcards (on a donation basis) for people to write messages for Vui Kong and Atiqah.
With this flea market, we hope to raise awareness on Iqah’s case, and to gather even more support from Singaporeans for her. We also hope to get more people thinking about and discussing the mandatory death penalty in both Singapore and Malaysia.
As promised, the proceeds of the flea market tomorrow are still going towards the Save Atiqah campaign. The Save Atiqah campaign committee will be meeting tomorrow morning to decide on how best to use the new funds that are being raised.
