Relief for Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda – Do your part and donate

   Category: Announcement, Charity |

Dear Churpers,

Typhoon Haiyan (also known as Typhoon Yolanda) has taken over the news ever since it hit the Philippines on the 8th of November 2013, where more than 600,000 people have now been displaced by the storm across the country and with no access to food, water or medicine. The numbers of the dead and injured are in the thousands now, and worse still, the list keeps getting longer every day.

We are deeply saddened by this tragedy, but there’s more we can do than to keep them in our prayers. As such, Churp Churp is organizing a regional donation drive to raise funds for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan, and we urgently appeal to all of you in our wonderful Churp Churp community to come together and do our part to help those in need.

From now till 22 December 2013, you can do your part and contribute to our fund in just a few simple steps, by donating either a portion of your Churp Churp earnings, or via Paypal!

1. Head over to your Churp Churp dashboard.

2. Look for the “[URGENT] Donate to help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan!” campaign and click it.

3. Choose the denomination you would like to donate. The options are: $2, $5, $10 and $50. Please tick the box if you would like to donate anonymously. (We will be featuring the names of all the donors at the end of this campaign, in recognition of your generosity).

4. You will receive a confirmation email.

5. The amount will then be deducted from your current earnings.

There! Imagine that, with these 5 easy steps, you could easily help a starving child, a sick man or a dying woman.

Alternatively, you can also click on the link choose to donate via Paypal, where you can choose from a total of 12 charities to contribute to.

If you’ve been thinking, “I should do something to help the victims of this disaster”, well, today is the day you stop thinking, and start doing! The collection period for this donation drive is from the 22nd of November to the 22nd of December 2013, after which we will donate the total amount raised to Red Cross Philippines.

We know our community is capable of doing great things together, so do your part and help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan today. We thank you in advance for your generosity, and for being a part of this good cause!



#Churpremiere – Tickets to Battle Of The Year (PG13) up for grabs!

   Category: Churpremiere, Contest |

Love to dance? Always wanted to be a dancer? Or just simply a fan of dance even though you just can’t get your hands and feet coordinated? Then you’ve GOT to catch Battle Of The Year and experience what it’s like to form your own dream team!

Synopsis: Battle of the Year is an international dance crew tournament that attracts all the best teams from around the world, but the Americans haven’t won in fifteen years.

Los Angeles Hip Hop mogul Dante (Alonso) wants to put the country that started the Sport back on top. He enlists his hard-luck friend Blake (Holloway), who was a championship basketball coach, to coach his team.

Armed with the theory that the right coach can make any team champions, they assemble a dream team of all the best dancers across the country.

With only three months until Battle of the Year, Blake has to use every tactic he knows to get twelve talented individuals to come together as a team if they’re going to bring the Trophy back to America where it started.

#FeatureFriday: Ruth Kueo – The Singer-Songwriter

   Category: Alpha, Feature Friday |

Who would have expected this petite, sweet girl who graduated with a degree in NUS (FASS) to have such a big heart for what she’s passionate about? Ruth ventured away from what was the natural route for her after graduation, and started her career in singing.

Recently, we met up with her to find out a little more about her new EP that was just launched a few weeks back (It’s now available in all 23 CD RAMA outlets in Singapore)! We also took the opportunity to find out a little more about the Ruth that we may not see on the surface. Read on!

1. Congratulations on your new EP! How did it feel for it to finally be out in stores?

I’m very happy that it is finally out in stores. It feels kind of surreal as I’ve been working on it for the past 1 year.

2. What’s your inspiration behind this EP?

I like listening to songs from singer-songwriters like Lala Xu, Khaili Fong in the mandopop scene, as well as songs from A Fine Frenzy, Ingrid Michaelson, Feist. I was inspired to share my music and reaffirm my identity as a independent singer-songwriter after having my fair share of winning and losing in local and regional televised singing competitions in past. Through these experiences I learnt that my greatest joy in music comes when I’m able to write, sing and perform my own songs. It is much more meaningful this way.

3. What’s your favourite musical instrument?

I usually play piano and ukulele, but I would say that my favourite instrument is the guitar (though I can’t play it well). Love the acoustic sounds!

4. What are the 3 words that you’d use to describe yourself?

Dreamer.  Free-spirited.  Driven.

5. What’s your dream car?

Realistically, the Volkswagon Golf GTI is one I’m hoping to own in the near future. Unrealistically, it would be an Audi R8.

6. Who’s your favourite singer?

My favourite mandopop singer is A-lin. Love the intensity of her voice and interpretation of songs. As for the English scene, it’s Katy Perry. I was pretty inspired by her after watching her movie “Part of Me”, an autobiography which revealed so much more about the hard work she put in to be who she is today. She wrote all her songs herself and they are all so catchy!

7. If you had to choose, would you pick YouTube or Instavideo?

I would pick Instavideo! It is so much more convenient to get a message across effectively in 15 seconds.

8. If you were a hashtag, what would you be?

#wanderluster

9. What do you usually do in your free time?

I love going to cafes and watch the world go by.

10. What’s your favourite festival?

Christmas!

We’re all so excited about her blooming career in the music industry. She’ll be performing in the upcoming 新加坡金曲奖 Singapore Hit Awards at Suntec Convention Centre on the 22nd November 2013 and there’ll be a radio interview with YES933 on the 28th November with regards to this new EP, so catch her if you can! November will be an exciting month for her with lots of upcoming events, so do follow her on her Facebook Page, Twitter and Instagram if you don’t want to miss any! And if you love her voice, do subscribe to her YouTube channel too!
