When we say ‘Flag’, it’s easy to think of holding tins and asking for coins on Flag Day…
But here in FASS, we do it differently.
Arts Flag is part of the NUSSU annual RAG-And-Flag Event, where every faculty puts in effort to raise both funds and awareness for the less fortunate.
This year, Arts Flag’s charity beneficiary for NUSSU Flag is TOUCH Community Services- an organisation that seeks to serve individuals from all religions and races, including children, youth, families, people with special/healthcare needs and the elderly.
Here in Arts Flag, we care about making a difference in a sustainable way beyond merely offering one-off volunteer services and simple fundraising. We aim to put the FUN in FUNdraising, connecting communities by ensuring that everyone leaves happy. From the people at TOUCH to the friends in FASS, we hope to help everyone understand the meaning behind Flag and our power as one faculty.
For 2016, we have an exciting line-up of volunteer activities ranging from simple beneficiary engagement efforts to the massive NUSSU Flag day. Beneficiary engagements are great opportunities to TOUCH base with those we are helping, either through the hosting of fundraisers on their behalf or connecting volunteers to their interested services.
One day in August every year, students from across the faculty come together to go out- and Flag. With an entire camp’s worth of freshmen on the streets, Flag Day serves as the grand closing to the efforts of Arts Flag throughout the year. With over $13,000 raised by FASS alone last year, serving in any part of Flag Day becomes an unforgettable experience.
So if you feel like making a difference:
Freshie or Senior,
Experienced or Rookie,
Big or Small,
Arts Flag is waiting for you.
