It has been a while and you must be wondering how is TTS doing…^^
Our sincere apologies for not updating our website as frequently as we would love to. We have been swamped by work but rest assured that we will keep our eyes on our shared goal-promoting community wellness, resilience and minimizing wastage by giving pre-loved clothing and items a second life.
We are happy to share that in response to our appeal, many donors have responded positively to TTS’s calling for pre-loved clothing and items donations.
Some of you found us on Carousell, some of you found us on our social media (IG, TikTok or FB) and some of you just walked into our thrift shop by chance. Regardless of how you found us, many of you have been contributing generously to our cause and there are also ‘repeat donors’ who truly give from their hearts.
We were so touched when you reached out to us, whether for the first time or as our repeat donors. Some of you even helped to share stories or posts of TTS on your own IG, TikTok account, on Lemon8 and other social media platforms. We were so encouraged that some of you rallied for TTS and encouraged your loved ones, family members, and your friends to come forward to give their support. For those who have donated your pre-loved items or clothing or rallied for us, we want you to know that we appreciate all your contributions. Thank you so much for believing and supporting us.
Even though there are more thrift shops, second-hand shops or flea markets in the current market now that before, TTS will continue to strive towards our shared goals and shall not lose sight of what we were set up to do-to make professional services available, accessible, and affordable for all and to help reduce wastage.
By far, we have helped channel our collections of donated children clothing, small toys and plushies, reusable and reasonably cleaned items like bed sheets and school bags to overseas orphanages and refugee camps through our partners’ network and Churches. We have also donated to support local charities like Chinese medicine hall which offers free treatment for elderly and supported Hong Ho Elderly Centre. It is the hope of TTS to do good and in time to come, we hope we can go beyond survival and be in the position to give or do more for our local community. Till then, please continue to support or bless our work ^^
Shall update and keep you posted again… Stay safe, happy and healthy. Love TTS
Wishing you Merry Xmas and a happy new year.
2022 is drawing a closure and 2023 is the beginning of new and exciting journey together. Thank you for being the driving forces behind TTS. Without all your generous donations, TTS will not be able to offer good quailty clothing and pre-loved items at low prices to help our community in cost saving and to drive this recycling and reusing project. We are happy to share that many items you donated have found their new owners.
We are grateful that many of you chose to drop off your donations at our thrift shop which helped us greatly in our cost savings (time, petrol and energy). The sustainability of our ‘Not for Profit’ thrift shop and community support operation is counting on our donors and thrift shoppers and yes, you are the driving forces for our commuity thrift shop and recycling project. We appreciate that many of you have shared TTS within your social circle and help to generate awareness to your friends and family. Thank you so much for doing that and for helping us to grow our pool of community donors.
You will be glad to know that to date, and on your behalf, TTS has made 3 rounds of donations, to bless children in orphanage in Nia and Batam in Indonesia, and the Phillipines. We also donated 4 bags of torn or stained clothing to Recle.co to support their recycing project in Dec. We will continue to work with our partners to share your blessings and donations and we assure you that we will try to reuse and recycle as much as we could to drive sustainability and to minimize wastage.
We will continue to serve our donors by offering complimentary home pick up for those who need it, pass our cost savings to our thrift shoppers and use the proceeds to cover our operating cost and to fund our community program and services. Looking forward to your continuous support in 2023 and to bring blessings to all. Will keep you posted again in Jan or Feb. Stay safe everyone^^
Hope you are safe, well and happy wherever you are^^
We would like to give our thanks to all of you who have contributed to TTS clothing donation drive in Aug/Sept. Some of you had also donated reusable items that we are using in our community thrift shop, selling in our shop or on Carousell and giving away as freebies to bless our thrift shoppers.
Thank you for reaching out to us, sharing TTS with your friends and loved ones and helping to spread love and blessings around. With your continuous love and support, TTS will continue to grow and serve our community well. Our goal is to drive a sharing and giving spirit and to build a happier and more resilient community. As our pool of donors and thrift shoppers continue to grow, we are making TTS’s presence felt and creating awareness of our services and a step closer to serving the needs of our beneficiaries.
Thank you for being with us and believing in us. Together we can do more. Here’s a glimpse of our collections in Aug and Sept:
Stay well and keep in touch^^
Hope you are kicking well^^
It has been a hectic month in July and we have been running around picking up donations from kind donors. Thank you for supporting our clothing drive and community project and for giving so generously and whole-heartedly.
We are very encouraged by some of you who ‘found’ us and many of you who shared our links, liked our posts and following us on our social media. A big thank you to those who have reached out to us and dropped off your pre-loved clothing at our thrift shop too.
TTS is almost 3-month-old now and we are so blessed that our followers on social media and the number of donors who contributed have grown! TTS is happy to be this driving force of giving and receiving and we welcome all to join us and embark on this journey. Let’s continue to share our pre-loved clothing, send our love around and bring happiness to all!
We look forward to meeting new or repeated donors in the upcoming months and we certainly hope you will help to share TTS clothing donation drive, our support and services to people you care about.
Here’s a glimpse of some of the gems we have collected in July…

Thank you very much for connecting with us and donating your pre-loved clothing and items in May.
Though TTS is one month old and still a baby, we have received so much of love and support from our community donors in just 1 month!
We are very touched and encouraged by our community giving spirit and words can’t expressed our deepest thanks to each and every one of you^^
We look forward to meeting you in the upcoming months and we certainly hope you will help to spread the words around and introduce TTS to your friends, family, colleagues or even your friendly neighbours. After all, good things are meant to be shared right? Aha^^
Here’s a glimpse of some of the items we have collected in Apr, May and June:
These ‘treausures’ have undoubtedly brightened up the faces of many who patronized our thrift shop in May. Yes, it’s you, don’t turn your head, your gifts have brought smiles to many of our thrift shoppers and I’d like to share their joy with you here.
So, let’s keep it up and continue our journey…this post will be updated in July so see you around! Love, TTS
