What we do
Comprised of 100 People, 100 Women and QUIZ WARS, (aka 100 Men Doing Good!), our goal is to raise the profile of as many Singaporean charities as we can whilst raising funds for the vital work they do… and connecting lots of good people along the way.
We wanted to create opportunities for people, particularly expats, to learn about charities in their community so they could support them financially or by volunteering, during their time on the little red dot.
We knew people were searching for ways to make a difference, so we rallied everyone we knew and contacted a variety of fantastic charities and the connections and fundraising began!
And so, a platform was created for charities to share their stories and ask for help, as well as a great community of engaged people with the desire to do more for others.
Thank you to all the charities and wonderful people who have supported us along the way 💚

4 charities are in focus at each event.
5 minute presentations by each charity are followed by a Q&A session.
45 minutes is around the entire duration of the presentations.

100 Women Doing Good is one of my favorite new events in Singapore. It's a well-organized evening of curated presentations by local charities, and it's a great opportunity to meet other like-minded women who care about making a difference in the world.Elizabeth Pishny
100 Women Doing Good is a wonderful event to understand the work that local charities are doing and the obstacles they face. I also had the opportunity to meet and network with strong, career minded and kind women from different backgrounds. Highly recommend and can't wait to do it again!Anne Winston
100 men doing good is such a simple concept, bring like minded people together for an evening and more importantly a great opportunity for charities within Singapore to reach out to people they otherwise may not have been able to. In a country in which, we take so much for granted it’s great to have the opportunity to give back to organisations that work hard to improve the lives of so many.
In short a great concept that has the potential to do wonderful work!Tamas King
“100 Men Doing Good” delivered a very successful evening that brought together a group of like-minded people looking to help others. This one night raised over $10,000 with every cent going to various Singapore charities that help the many people affected by issues such as homelessness, domestic violence or mental health problems to name a few. The challenges faced are huge and it was great to help out and make a difference. It was a very worthwhile experience and will stay with all involved for some time to come.Adam Maynard

A Scottish economics graduate, Brian worked as a fund manager in the City of London for a large institution which also bought very large properties such as hotels, office buildings and shopping centres. The shopping centres particularly attracted Brian’s interest and he gradually moved across to the property side, along the way re-qualifying as a chartered surveyor and shopping centre designer. This proved a very successful move as Brian discovered one of his great passions.
