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!
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.
About MDAS & DPA
MDAS and DPA are members of the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) with the Institution of Public Character (IPC) status. Both organisations serve the community, in particular, people with disabilities.

Student volunteers will also be awarded CIP hours and a certificate of appreciation for the commitment exhibited. Get bonus CIP hours if you take up two shifts or Shift 3.
Every Effort Counts!
Join us in making this Flag Day a big success by sharing this with your friends and family! You will stand to help both MDAS & DPA and get to understand the needs of the community at the same time.
