Download e-book to redeem treat

When you find the cart, a friendly ice cream uncle will guide you on how to redeem the treat.

It’ll be as simple as downloading an e-book called “Little Green Heroes”.

The children’s book tells the story of three friends with special powers who protect their Planet Erf from a Trash Monster.

The e-book was created by residential electricity retailer Geneco and 3Pumpkins, a non-profit organisation that provides socio-emotional support for vulnerable youths and children to express themselves through arts.

Its drawings were thus drawn by the children at 3Pumpkins.

Geneco hopes to raise S$15,000 for charity

The ice cream giveaway in fact aims to increase visibility and engagement for Geneco’s #HappilyEverAfter campaign.

The drive encourages the public to donate in support of 3Pumpkins’ initiatives, as well as send a strong message of sustainability and environmental awareness to readers of the e-book.

Ultimately, Geneco hopes to raise S$15,000 for charity this festive season.

Free ice cream amid the Orchard lights

We can’t think of any sweet treat that fits with Christmas more than frosty ice cream.

Thus, eating free ice cream amid the lights of Orchard seems to be the perfect thing to do over the weekend.

Downloading an e-book created by children with a timely message is simply the icing on the cake.

Do consider helping out the #HappilyEverAfter campaign too, as it’s for a good cause indeed.
