Great Eastern has launched a campaign #StrongestSingles to kick-start honest and meaningful conversations about single parenthood on Singles’ Day. It runs in conjunction with a promotion where Great Eastern will co-fund 50% of first year premiums for the first 111 single parents who signed up for the GREAT Family Care plan until the end of the year.
The campaign film has garnered 1,700 views and 60 shares on Facebook in under two days. It shared how single parents, who take on double the responsibility and stress, have double the strength, love and pride. The #StrongestSingles campaign was conceptualised and produced in collaboration with creative agency BLKJ. Marketing has reached out to the agency for more information.

Colin Chan, MD of group marketing at Great Eastern said the promotion aims to ease single parents’ financial burden and support them in taking the first step to protecting their whole family. Great Eastern launched the GREAT Family Care plan recently earlier in May. The multi-generational critical illness plan, covering three generations in a single policy, seeks to address the financial needs of the sandwich generation.
“For them, insurance may seem like a luxury and not a necessity. Not because they do not think it is important, but because they have many other financial commitments which they have to manage on their own,” Chan explained.
BLKJ CEO and founder Rowena Bhagchandani said: “The thing about us Singaporeans is that we don’t talk enough about topics that are traditionally considered taboo. But if we don’t talk about single parents as a society, we won’t truly understand what they go through and why they deserve our empathy and respect.”
