Launched by MTM Solutions in 2012 as a team-building event, the MTM DragonBoat Team Cup Challenge Championship has become a much anticipated and enjoyable annual event of fun and friendly competition.
In this 7th year of competition, MTM Solutions wants to 'give back' by supporting billionBricks to impact lives.
Through this event, DragonBoat teams will be fundraising to distribute weatherHYDE extreme weather tents to help save the lives of the homeless.
The individual team target goal is SG$8,400, which will provide 20 weatherHYDE tents to families of 5, impacting 100 homeless lives.
Every US$300 (or S$400) donated helps one homeless family have shelter
Under 'Additional Information', please select your company/organisation name to track your team's contributions.
weatherHYDE tents that have been donated for are currently being produced in China.
If the collective fundraising of teams reaches SG$200,000, funds will be directed toward the construction of a 6-classroom school for 240 children in Batam, Indonesia.
All participating teams/companies and sponsors will be given recognition and a commemorative plaque with company logos at the school and be welcome to visit and volunteer at the school.

There are 60 million homeless unprotected by elements of nature. Thousands die every year across the world. weatherHYDE is a life-saving homeless shelter for families. It provides an insulated tent for homeless families that protects from the most extreme weather. It is female-friendly and enables a single person, toolless installation within 15 minutes and does not need any anchoring.
More than 2,500 homeless are currently using weatherHYDE in over 8 countries.
We value transparency and have made tracking easy for donors following this 3-step process:
Every donated weatherHYDE tent is tagged with a unique QR code and given to a pre-selected homeless family.
QR codes are matched between the beneficiary families and donors, and are sent to donors via email.
Track the location of your donated weatherHYDE, and (virtually) meet the family whom you're helping through our Impact Page.
