When E&S Blessing first began in 2017, we simply wanted to show how every life is precious and we wanted to celebrate that. Our gifting idea was birth from there and with that, our desire to support as many beneficiaries as we could. Today we celebrate our 4th birthday as a team and it is only befitting to reflect upon the various milestones we've had over these past three years. Join us as we take a countdown through memory lane + share about the exciting plans we have for the next season of E&S Blessing!
In July 2017, we began our partnership with HCSA Dayspring's SPIN programme, working closely with them to provide a fixed sum donation of our proceeds towards building a contingency fund to benefit the single parent families in their care. Just over a year ago, we went a step further to embark on our Celebrating Dreams Initiative that is also part of our 1nspiredForGood movement. The whole essence of this initiative is to work with single parents to help them build, start and fund their dreams. And so our journey with lovely Madam Begam, single mother of five, began. As a pioneer of our Celebrating Dreams Initiative, Madam Begam has worked on popular aprons, bags, and felt alphabets. It has been a joy that she is very much a part of what we do and we want to celebrate her this special day.
Since the start of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have come to know more and more underprivileged families in need of support than before. Thus, as of August 2021, we will be partnering with FRCS Family Service Centre to extend support to their beneficiaries. During this season, with the help of our sponsors, Christopher Huang of CHP Law LLC and Benjamin Huang of Grey Ogre Games LLP, we will be supporting two underprivileged families with groceries for a season - Ms A, single mother of two special needs boys aged 2 and 4, and Mdm L and her young family. Special thanks to Christopher and Benjamin for partnering with us to support these families! We honour and appreciate you both.
To learn how you can be a part of our #1nspiredForGood Movement or contribute just like Christopher and Benjamin, click here. The world and communities around us can always use everyone's 1% of time, effort and money - nothing is too small to be a blessing to others.
As a team, we have also grown and changed over the past few years. We've not got THREE members in our E&S Blessing team, all of whom are an integral part of making E&S Blessing work. But of course, we are nothing without the support and love from you, our customers and our partners. Our fourth birthday is more than just celebrating all that we've accomplished and done; it is also about celebrating the community and teams that we have built along the way. And for that, we thank you for supporting, encouraging and shopping with us!
With every new year, comes new beginnings and seasons. This year is no different! On our fourth birthday, we are excited to announce a couple of updates and changes that have been in the works for a while now. And as you have probably guessed, we have FOUR major updates to share.
1. Gifts that Bless - Over the past couple of years, we have been focusing on celebrating every mother and child through our curated and handmade gifts. We believe every child and mother should be celebrated (and no doubt, we still do believe and wish to do that), but what about the men or everyone else who may not have children? We're excited to announce that we are expanding our gifting to a wider audience. No longer will E&S Blessing be only for mother and child. It will be for everyone and anyone! Whether it's a friend who has just gotten married or a colleague at work who is moving on to a new job, you will be able to find the suitable gift with us.
2. New Delivery Options - We have heard you on requests for same day and taken it a notch up to include time-slot deliveries for those who love to plan ahead or need specific delivery timings. Making gifting that much more accessible and awesome for you guys!
3. Votre Concierge - With many products and items to choose from on our website, it may sometimes be difficult to choose the perfect gift for your loved ones. We are excited to share that not only do we know have an accessible Gift Concierge to support your curation needs, but you can also save products you like and create your unique wishlist/gift registry with us that can be easily shared with your friends and family. Build your ultimate Blessing Box with us!
4. More Products made by our Beneficiaries - As gifting becomes a centerpiece, we hope to be able to incorporate a wider range of products made by our beneficiaries. Our Celebrating Dreams Initiative will be the forefront of our business and that will allow us to bless the underprivileged families we love and support.
And with that, we want to thank all of you - our customers, supporters, friends and family for your love shown to us over the past few years. We thank God for the opportunities, communities and partnerships that He has blessed us with and we look forward to continuing our journey to be a blessing to those around us as we look ahead to new adventures in store for us this year!
To celebrate this joyous occasion, you can now enjoy 20% off all Curated Gifts from now until next Sunday, 22nd August 2021. Click here to start shopping curated gifts. We will also be dedicating 20% of all the proceeds and sales in the month of August towards the social fund to supporting our two underprivileged families from Family Services Centre.

We cannot wait to see what the next year brings!
