ABOUT BLUESTAR 2021
BlueStar 2021 is a charity walk and cycle 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 2021. We are in our fourth year and we plan to raise $250,000 for the RCHD in 2021.
You’ll also be pleased to know that your Individual or Corporate donations will be entitled to 2.5 times tax relief. The Síngapore Tote Board will also match $0.40 per $1 raised. In short, every $1 raised will result in $1.40 to the beneficiaries.
Four founding members of BlueStar Charity Asia were accorded the Singapore Red Cross Commendation Award on 23 Nov 2021. It is a appreciation from the Singapore Red Cross Society for their unwavering efforts and invaluable contributions in Giving Joy and Spreading Love to the residents of 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.
DAY ACTIVITY CENTRE
The Red Cross Day Activity Centre in Jurong provides therapy for up to 39 vulnerable patients who are both physically and mentally disabled.
