These exclusive gift boxes comprise herbs and ingredients for making soups to improve one’s immune system, coupled with tea bags to improve overall well-being.

Aligned with the company’s mission of ‘Driving Excellence, Building Lifelong Relationships’, SDB’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) mission aims to create employment opportunities for people with disabilities.
CSR participants are coached and supervised by job coaches throughout the packing process of these Chinese New Year Gift Boxes. Every single gift box is carefully measured and well packed by these young adults.
Since year 2011, SDB has initiated various programmes to help this community acquire skills, knowledge and income. SDB’s CSR initiatives are driven by strong purpose, and revolves around offering support while creating opportunities for individuals with disabilities to acquire skills that will prepare them for a life on their own.
The Lucky Flower Soap is a free gift with the minimum purchase of two Chinese New Year Gift Box sets.
Apart from offering them a channel for employment, the projects undertaken by SDB do not just provide temporary assistance but also enable them to learn and improve their work and social skills.
• Back in year 2011, One-Two-Juice was launched whereby a fruit juice stall was operated by young adults with disabilities at the courtyard area of Wisma Golden Eagle Realty. Through this effort, they were able to prepare juices, took and delivered orders and manned the juice stalls. Subsequently, One-Two-Juice was awarded the Asia Responsible Entrepreneurship Award under the Social Empowerment Category in 2012 and 2014, emerging as one of the top CSR initiatives in the Asian region.
• Following the success of One-Two-Juice, One-Two-Wash was introduced in 2014 to create more employment opportunities and cater for individuals with special needs. The car wash initiative was implemented with specially designed processes and learning tools to assist these individuals to learn and follow through better. The operation of One-Two-Wash was also located at Wisma Golden Eagle Realty, which cater to office tenants as well as patrons from the neighbouring office buildings.
• In year 2020, the One-Two-Gift handcrafted naturally-made soaps project was introduced. The soaps are made from shea butter and essential oils to soothe and nourish the skin.
