All of us can do something for a good cause to create impact or awareness on a cause you believe in. The impact or effectiveness in the message or purpose is alot more powerful when celebrities or people with great influence wear, use, buy, carry or be seen using the product. If not, why would fashion brands sponsor celebrities to wear or use their products.

On Aug 2, the wife of Singapore PM, Mrs Lee, carried not a Chanel or LV bag but a little dinosaur purse that was designed by the student of PATHLIGHT.

Staff at the Pathlight School for autistic children were pleased to recognise the pouch as not just the work of a home-grown designer, but also one of their own - 19-year-old student Seetoh Sheng Jie, who sells his art through the school's The Art Faculty store.

Her simple gesture has helped create awareness on Pathlight School and autism. I am sure they are some people who would have clicked on The Art Faculty Store to find out more what is so "special" about them. I know I did.

Let us see or hope to see more celebrities or people with influence follow her simple gesture as their action does speak louder than our words.
