SAAC Launches New Heritage Totes with SilkAir

Singapore, 5 December 2016 — St. Andrew's Autism Centre (SAAC) is partnering SilkAir to exclusively feature two new tote bags with a cause. Now from till 28 February 2017, passengers on SilkAir flights or visitors to SilkAir's online SkyShop would have the option of purchasing canvas totes entitled Windows to my World and Peaceful Waves that feature artworks by students and clients of SAAC.

Launched by SAAC as part of its Colours Project, the launch marks a first in the corporate social responsibility (CSR) collaboration between SAAC and SilkAir.

"The relationship between SAAC and SilkAir goes back as far as four years ago when our Parent Support Group began equipping families with members with autism to travel together. Then, SilkAir's support of the autism cause started by availing its mock-up cabin for our students and clients to acclimatise to air travel, and their families to practise supporting them in an environment that could pose many sensory challenges," said Mr Dennis Ang, Chief Executive Officer, SAAC.

"Now, four years on, we are once again grateful to SilkAir for their strong belief in giving back to the community and their generosity and compassion in journeying with us and supporting this pilot project for our students and clients, "added Mr Ang"
