Hands Up To Doing Good This National Day - And Beyond!
Can you believe it's almost National Day again? This year's NDP theme is "Stronger Together, Majulah!", celebrating the strength of the Singapore spirit and encouraging us to build a better future together. Here are two simple ways you can do your part to show care and compassion for our fellow Singaporeans.
#PledgeSG invites you to pledge your support for worthy causes and express gratitude, hopes and wishes for Singapore and your fellow Singaporeans. You can pledge via your Instagram or Twitter account with the tag #PledgeSG, or through the dedicated #PledgeSG website. You're also encouraged to share your pledges to the "live" online social wall on the #PledgeSG website to inspire your fellow Singaporeans.
From now till 6 August, you're encouraged to fulfil your pledges for causes by taking part in the #DoingGood campaign. Over the course of this campaign, you can take part in various volunteering opportunities and initiatives to make our community a better place. You can also spread the love by starting your own initiatives on the #DoingGood website. For sign-ups and more volunteer activities, visit the #DoingGood website here.
