Since its founding in 2012, d’Good Café has been committed to contributing positively to our people and community.
We offer job opportunities that encourage personal growth and development. We also promote volunteerism among our people to enhance bonding and teamwork.
Our initiatives do not only provide us with the opportunity to help others, it has also increased the capacity of our hearts to care, love and give.
Blessing the needy and disadvantaged is something that we hold closely in our hearts. Our engagements include reaching out to needy families, elderly, intellectually challenged and youths at risk.
If you would like to make a difference and be exposed to different life skills, sign up as a volunteer by writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fulfil a Christmas Wish
2018, 2017, 2016
We believe giving is a blessing. In the spirit of Christmas, we partner TOUCH Young Arrows (TYA) yearly to bless underprivileged children aged 6 to 12 years. Advocating a Christmas beyond the usual gift exchange, we invite our patrons to join us in blessing the little ones by fulﬁlling their Christmas wishes.
We participate in this yearly fundraising event to beneﬁt 31,000 beneﬁciaries of TOUCH Community Services - children from low-income or single-parent families, youth-at-risk, needy families, people with special and healthcare needs, and the frail elderly. Proceeds from the sale of coffee and tea are donated to the cause.
Brew Good For Good
Annually, we would kick off our anniversary month by giving back to our community.
In celebration of our 5th Anniversary in 2017, we put together a coffee brewing kit to raise funds for the homebound elderly under TOUCH Home Care. 100% of the sale proceeds from the coffee kits were donated to support Meals-On-Wheels, a programme that delivers meals to elderly with mobility issues.
In 2018, we continued the fund-raising campaign by donating 100% of the profits from the sale of our house-brewed D’White cold brew coffee to support Meals-on-Wheels.
TOUCH SpecialCrafts is an art platform under TOUCH Centre for Independent Living (TCIL) that serves people with mild intellectual disabilities. The aim is to use visual art as an alternative way to bridge learning for persons with intellectual disability and to discover, nurture and develop their skills and talents in visual expressions. Since we opened our doors in 2012, we have been retailing crafts made by these special artists. You may find items such as handcrafted ceramic letter holders and luggage tags at our outlets in Holland Village and Takashimaya Shopping Centre. 100% of the sales proceeds goes back into supporting TCIL. To get to know these group of friends better, we also invited them to our café for a Coffee Day Out in 2014 and they were treated with to drinks and cakes.
October to November 2017
We joined hands with the People’s Association and four other F&B companies to impart culinary skills to at-risk youths. Guided by our Head Chef, five youths assigned to us went through a 3-part mentorship programme. In the finale of the event, the youths gave back to the community by preparing a 5-dish meal for 200 seniors and the lunch was hosted by our Minister for Health,
Mr Gan Kim Yong.
Cup Filled With Love
2018, 2017, 2016
Together with a few eateries, we went out to bless the community with free coffee in our respective hood. Anyone who picked up the empty cups carrying encouraging quotes which we distributed in the streets could head to our cafés to get them filled with free latte or long black.
A Smile, A Hope
We believe that a little positivity goes a long way.As 15 October 2016 marked our 4th Anniversary, we dedicated a week to spreading positivity and kindness. Our patrons were nominated to do acts of kindness when we handed them handmade “kindness” bracelets. Being kind can be as easy as buying a stranger coffee or telling our close ones how much we appreciate them. To pass on kindness, we encouraged our patrons to do likewise by nominating the people around them.
Project Heart of Love

Our staff volunteers came together to serve cheerfully in “Project Heart of Love”. Project Heart of Love is targeted at giving rental ﬂats resided in by the seniors aged 65 and above a makeover.
