#SeeItBlue is a nationwide mental health awareness campaign, where 34 Singapore landmarks—including Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay and ION Orchard—will be lit blue every Thursday at 8pm from 7 May to 1 June 2020 in support of frontline workers. Given that we’re all practicing social distancing and leaving our homes only when necessary, you can view the light display in all of its glory on their Instagram (@seeitbluesg).
The main objective of this initiative is to highlight the invisible battle happening during the COVID-19 pandemic—mental health. By lighting up iconic buildings in Singapore, the campaign seeks to increase the importance placed on mental well-being during these uncertain times. One of the key takeaways from this is that anyone, at anytime, can seek help via the National CARE Hotline.
Singapore isn’t the only country this campaign is taking place at. 14 other countries (and counting) have also participated—notable landmarks lit up include the Tower Bridge in London and Times Square in New York City.
