Warner Bros Get Animated Invasion Asia Tour makes final stop at Raffles City Singapore!
Happening from now till March 3, 2019!
While February may be seen as a month filled with love and affection, especially with Valentine’s Day, we often forget that “love” extends to more than just love towards our partners, family and friends. There are many in this world that needs all the love and support, apart from this special month.
On 13 Feb 2019, something really special happened at Raffles City Singapore that showed us what it means to make the world a better place, while helping those in need.
For the first time ever, a charity initiative as part of the “Get Animated Invasion” Tour by Warner Bros. Consumer Products (WBCP), has finally landed in Raffles City Singapore.
In fact, prior to this day, the Get Animated Invasion Asia Tour has covered Taipei, Beijing and Hong Kong, with Singapore as the last stop.
The program also features Warner Bros.’ iconic cartoon characters Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry and Scooby-Doo.
The opening event on 13 Feb itself saw a get-together of over 200 renowned celebrities and personalities, media friends and guests who graced the opening launch.
Walk through a gallery with close to 80 uniquely customised Marvin The Martian figurines created by regional & local celebrities and personalities such as Aaron Kwok, Fann Wong, Pierre Png, Mark Lee, Li Nan Xing, Dato Joey Yap, Nick Shen, Little Miss Bento and many more!
Each piece is one-of-a-kind as each of them adds their own creative touches, let their imagination run wild and eventually turning their blank Marvin Funko figure into a work of art.
It is nothing short of heartwarming where behind each carefully crafted piece lies a story.
Just last year, Mark Lee’s younger daughter, Calynn Lee, was diagnosed with glomerulonephritis, a rare kidney disease. He shared that his 6-year-old had her “immune system attacked by bad bacteria” and she “went through treatments”.
Despite the pain, Calynn tried her best to not cry in front of her parents as she did not want to let them worry. A very strong little girl — and that’s what inspired the “Little Princess Fighter” figurine.
Figurines created by regional celebrities such as Aaron Kwok (right image, centre), to even Amber Liu from K-pop girl group f(x), will be up for display at Level one of Raffles City.
With these like-minded individuals coming together to support this meaningful cause, 100% of the proceeds for Marvin The Martian figurines auctioned off will benefit Make-A-Wish International charity foundation.
Muhammad Ridhwan Bin Masali, who suffers from Pfeiffer syndrome, a rare genetic disorder, is a Make-A-Wish Child from Make-A-Wish Foundation Singapore that will benefit from this cause.
What better way to kickstart 2019 than by doing good? Besides, it is not everyday that we are able to realise the dreams of these children.
