We Need YOUR Help!

JOIN US FOR FLAG DAY
on 6 Sept 2014 (Saturday)

Greetings and warm wishes from the Muscular Dystrophy Association (Singapore), MDAS!

MDAS will be having our very first Flag Day in about 2 months’ time. In order to make this Flag Day a success we will need to recruit flag sellers, station supervisors and logistic volunteers to be stationed throughout the island. All the roles play a crucial part in making this event a success!

  • 100 Station Supervisors
  • 2,500 Flag Sellers
  • 50 Logistics Volunteers
  • 50 Collection Counters
  • 5 Photographers

Annually, MDAS needs to raise $450,000 to operate our programmes and services. We hope to raise at least $200,000 through this Flag Day.

This is a Joint Flag Day by MDAS & the Disabled People’s Association (DPA), themed, “Little Actions, Big Differences”. We would like to appeal to all individuals to step forward to lend a helping hand.

The details of the Flag Day are indicated below.
