Our Campaign Storyends 15 Aug 2022, 11:59 PM
Rag (Receiving and Giving) & Flag Day is an annual event held by NUS where the different faculties, halls and residential colleges put up spectacular performances to thank the public for their continuous support and donations for our beneficiaries.
For Science Flag this year, the beneficiary we have partnered with is Singapore Disability Sports Council (SDSC). We conduct regularly beneficiary visits to engage our participants as well as the athletes and we plan to collaborate with SDSC to help NUS students learn more about the different sports that are organised by them.
This year, we have new fundraising initiatives such as Valentine's Day and even workshops such as Punch Needle Workshop to help raise funds for the beneficiaries.
Although COVID-19 has disrupted us for the past 2 years, we hope that with physical activities resuming, we would be able to reach out to a wider audience and improve awareness for them. At the same time, we hope to form strong bonds with our beneficiaries through these tough times.
All funds raised will go towards Community Chest before they are redistributed to the respective beneficiaries after consideration by Community Chest.
