A tribute to Singapore's unsung heroes

SINGAPORE - She has a prominent scar on her scalp, but the 14-year-old girl bravely shaved her long hair off to raise awareness of childhood cancer.

Her courageous act has inspired thousands after news of her bold statement reached STOMP, Singapore's top citizen-journalism website.

The STOMPer who alerted the website to her story said: "I just want to say that this girl inspired me a lot and is very brave. I really salute her for what she has done."

The teenager may well have been a hero to her family and friends, but STOMP's extensive reach and strong following means that thousands more are able to read her story and learn from her selfless act.

This is just one of the many inspiring stories sent by STOMPers of touching acts they have encountered in their everyday life.

STOMP welcomes these positive contributions and features them in the Get Inspired section of the website, where all things good go viral.

Citizen journalists have the power to shed light on such heartwarming acts of kindness in Singapore that may otherwise go unnoticed.

With your camera phone, simply snap a candid shot of a moment that has touched you, and send your report to STOMP.

Take a recent incident which happened about two weeks ago.
