This is Whittaker. He is a 5-year-old boy who is making the world a better place with his kind heart and sense of service to others. Whit was inspired by the Oasis Second Chance Animal Shelter (OSCAS) donation drive that we did in December 2018 where he and his classmates eagerly collected food and other essentials for shelter dogs around Singapore.

He was so keen to do more for the shelter dogs that he told his mother Rachael that he wanted to ask his friends for cash donations that he could pass to OSCAS instead of toys for his birthday in March. Thanks to the generosity of all who contributed, Whit managed to raise $500 (SGD) and collected various food/play items for the shelter dogs. He paid a personal visit to OSCAS to drop off his donations.

Thank you Whittaker, you are an inspiration to us all for making the world a better place. As an IB learner, you have definitely showed us that being caring is the first step to making a positive difference in the lives of those in need around us.
