Just One Person

This is the flyer prepared by Atiqah’s loved ones, to be distributed for the purposes of raising awareness of her story and her case in Malaysia.

You can email it, print it, tweet it, Facebook it… however you please. But do share this flyer, and talk about Atiqah to your friends. This is how we get things moving, how we begin to campaign to save a life. We start by telling a story. Atiqah’s story.

We don’t want to ask for too much. We know you have jobs, school, assignments, projects. Everyone is busy. But all we need is:

Just One Person.

Just one person, from each of you. Just one person, if that is all you have the time for. One person is better than none. One voice is better than utter silence.

Talk to your friend at recess time. “Hey, have you heard about Atiqah?”

Talk to your family over dinner. “Did you read about this lady, her name is Atiqah…”

Talk to your colleague during lunch break. “Have you seen this flyer? This is Atiqah…”

Tell them her story. Give them the flyer. Show them this blog, or the Save Atiqah blog. Tell them that we are trying to save her, a Singaporean single mother whose mistake was to fall in love with the wrong man. Tell them we are trying to save her for her little girl, who needs her mother back. Get them interested, ask them to join us in this fight.

Bring them to our events, or just to subscribe to this blog for updates and more stories.

Then tell them what we’ve just told you: talk to just one person.

One person, then one more. One person, then one more. This will be how we start our fight to save Atiqah. Thank you for joining us.

Thank you for coming to our flea!

The Second Chances flea market at The Pigeonhole (awesome place, check it out!) went really well today. Huge thanks to everyone who came!

We raised $337 today, from sales and donations. Since they have reached their target of raising $50,000 for Atiqah on Saturday, the Save Atiqah campaign committee has decided to leave the money with Second Chances to fund future events – not just for Atiqah’s case, but for Vui Kong, Chun Yin, or any of the mandatory death penalty cases that we might come across in the future.

We thank the Save Atiqah committee for donating the money to Second Chances in support of our other cases, and hope that they know we will always be around to support and help them with whatever they need in their campaign, be it help to fundraise, gain financial support or just spread Iqah’s story. 🙂

We also thank Liyana of MommaMiia Creations for joining us today, and for donating part of her proceeds to the campaign. Thank you Liyana for coming forward and helping us! ?

See you tomorrow! :D

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.
