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! ?

As Sunday approaches, it’s time for us to close pre-orders for cupcakes and photo prints.
For those who still want to purchase photo prints, though, you can pay for them through PayPal and get them posted to you! Click here
to do so.
On Sunday, the Second Chances stall will also have some picture postcards available on a donation basis for you to write messages to Atiqah and Vui Kong. These messages will be passed to Atiqah and Vui Kong’s family members who will be able to deliver them.
Atiqah has told her friends and family that she would love to receive letters and messages from us, and Vui Kong always looks forward to hearing from those who have been following his case and supporting him.
As we are out here campaigning and fighting for a second chance for both of them, they have to stay within the prison boundaries. And so we hope that these postcards, together with the messages we write, will be able to brighten up their day.
See you on Sunday!
Since we all decided to go ahead with the Second Chances flea market to support Atiqah, I have been wondering what I could contribute to sell. I can’t really cook or bake or sew and the last time I did handicrafts I superglued my finger to an ice cream stick.
I have thus decided that I will contribute some of the photos I have taken to sell as prints, with all profits going towards the Save Atiqah campaign.
These photos can be printed either 8R or 4R size. 8R prints are going for S$10 each, and 4R S$5 each. They can be picked up at the flea market on the 10th of April at The Pigeonhole.
