ABOUT BLUESTAR 2020

BlueStar 2020 is a charity movement initiated by a group of like-minded old boys and girls of ex-NPCC Cadet Inspectors and friends, who have come together and organised a Charity Virtual Walk in aid of the Red Cross Home for the Disabled (“RCHD”) in 2020. We are in our third year and we plan to raise $150,000 for the RCHD in 2020.

You’ll be pleased to know that your Individual or Corporate donations will be entitled to 2.5 times tax relief. The Singapore government’s Community Silver Trust will match $1 for every $1 donated. What’s more, the Singapore Tote Board, will match $0.20 to every $1 donated. In short, every $1 donated by you will result in an additional $1.20 raised for the Red Cross Home for the Disabled.

It is not about how much we Give, but it is about how much Love we put into Giving.

Steven Lau • Chairman of BlueStar 2020
