SOSD Flag Day is the favourite event of so many, not only because of the fun-filled activities lasting from morning till night, but because it is an exceptional day which brings out the best in so many of us. More than a 1000 of us, from all walks of life, come together, for a common cause.
On Flag Day, many friendships are forged, and numerous unforgettable memories made. A little boy, for instance, brought 3 bags of coins to our counter, and told us that would like to donate his life savings to help dogs who are less fortunate than him; A man, who brought his dog, who is dying of cancer, to raise funds for homeless dogs for the very last time..
And Boon Keng and Yuan Cheng, 2 wonderful individuals, who decided to do their part for charity this year, by hitting the streets to do their parts by collecting flags. Boon Keng and Yean Cheng may have some inconveniences moving around, as a result of muscular dystrophy, but that has not dampened their moods in any way, or stopped them from wanting to give back. Their spirit truly, deeply moving and humbling.
SOSD Flag Day is always the day which brings out the best in all of us. And on this day, the kindness of the human spirit shines through brighter than any other, to motivate, inspire, and propel us to do even more, and even better.
A huge Thank You, dear friends, for your support for SOSD Flag Day!
We are in the midst of tallying the total donations from yesterday; however, we are far from our target of $250,000. Current estimates are at $100,000, almost half of the amount collected from last Flag Day. We hope to continue to raise funds through our online campaign. If you missed us yesterday, you can still continue to donate, at: http://sosd.org.sg/cause-view/sosd-flag-day-2016/
