He's as Singaporean as chicken rice, the Merlion and ERP put together. However, one thing that the Flying Dutchman has yet to do as a Singaporean is his National Service.
FD was exempted from National Service and now at 62, he may be a little too past his prime to be a National Serviceman. (NSman)
To salute all the men who have done their part or will be going through the National Service, FD will be shaving his head - a ritual that all Singaporean sons would have gone through before becoming men in green.
ONE FM hopes to raise $10,000 as part of the station's initiative to give back and help FD's head-shaving journey a more meaningful one!
The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund is the charity of choice and we believe a little goes a long way.
Let us help to make this happen by donating now!
You can also show your support and join us at Great World City on 2nd June, 2pm to witness FD's momentous head-shaving event. See you there!
Let's make FD botak!
About the Charity
The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund provides pocket money to children from low-income families to help them through school. The children can use this money for school-related expenses, such as buying a meal during recess, paying for transport or using it to meet other schooling needs. The financial help also eases the burden of the many parents who are already struggling to feed their families on their meagre incomes.
The Fund supports about 10,000 children and youth a year. Since the year 2000, the Fund has disbursed more than $80m and helped over 180,000 children and youth.
STSPMF disburses the funds to needy students through participating mainstream schools and disbursing agencies such as Youth Centres, Family Service Centres (FSCs), Special Education (SPED) schools, VWOs working with persons with disability, specialised schools, Children's Homes and PAVE.
STSPMF is a charity with Institution of Public Character (IPC) status.
