i got a few epic ones:

1: takes out a 50 buck note and stuffs down ur can. i'm glad there are such ppl around who can still afford to donate so much.

2: asks me the reason behind it, told him its for this organization, perfect score ans. just to realise he said its for a certain racial/religious group so he dun wanna donate. i nearly threw my shoe at him cause thats not racial harmony.

And why can't we choose which religion to donate to? :think:

I won't donate to certain groups because I do not agree with their direction. So why should I donate to them? :dunno:

I do not disrepect them nor talk bad about them. So is that non-racial harmony?

I also prefer not to donate to flagday which is by religious organisation.
Why? Because I prefer non religious donation. More than enough fails the integrity test, put holy face but doing something totally the opposite with the money.

I dont like to donate near religious holiday too. Because there are plenty of people who donated and I would rather donate during the dry season.

Forcing people with different belief to donate to other belief simply breed discontent. That is the root of racial disharmony. Donating money is not equal to being tolerant.

I've have done flag day, a few years ago for my sec sch CIP..

I went to Kranji MRT to do.
The SMRT officer also came up to me and say I'm the 1st person he saw doing flag day at Kranji MRT. ;)

My share of a "strange sight":
Got 1 uncle at first donate $2.. When he came out winning $$..
He donated a cheque.. :sweat:



Just a tip: Want to avoid these flag day people, only Kranji MRT is save?? :dunno:

I usually dig for spare change and unload them to the flag can.. then get a sticker so that there'll be no further harassment..

But always keep "backup" coins.. so that if there's a chio fund raiser later, can donate again.... :bsmilie:
