About Freddy the Eager Fundraiser
Moved by the plight of the earthquake victims in the devastating 2015 earthquake in Nepal, Freddy wants to contribute to his middle school’s fundraiser with the Singapore Red Cross. From earning money doing household chores to setting up a lemonade stand, Freddy finds out that raising money is harder than it looks. Inspired by his ukelele-playing younger brother Ray, Freddy calls on his friends, family, and colleagues of his parents to set up a fundraiser/awareness fair within two weeks, battling challenges along the way.
