Welcome In My Backyard
Welcome In My Backyard (WIMBY) is a volunteer-run campaign that raises awareness in relation to Migrant Workers (MWs), with the primary aim of humanising MWs in the local community’s eyes.

In celebration of their first anniversary, WIMBY will be hosting Birthday Makan, a ground-up pay-it-forward initiative for our MW friends living in dormitories in the West. This is in hopes of mobilising all of Singaporean society — bakeries and local residents like you — to celebrate the spirit of inclusivity and togetherness.
WIMBY has successfully run such an initiative (Backyard Makan) back in December 2020, where over 500 bakes were sponsored!
HOW IT WORKS
You can simply sponsor a $4 cookie for our MW brothers, or as many as you wish! This fee will help cover the costs for Cookie Crumbles SG, as we prepare the sponsored bakes. For every 10 cookies sponsored, Cookie Crumbles makes one free!
At the end of the campaign, we will collate the total number of sponsored bakes. We will then arrange with WIMBY volunteers for delivery to the dormitories for the MWs to enjoy the cookies fresh!
