Boys' Town's "Blue Ribbon Project" is about making a difference in the lives of others. It serves to remind us of the importance of caring for one another, especially those in need. It inspires action through the awareness that we need not and should not wait for others to act, but that we ourselves hold the key to making the difference. Hence, we can Be The Difference.
The color Blue has always been symbolic to Boys' Town and its history. Our motto "He ain't heavy, He's my brother" epitomizes the spirit of the "Blue Ribbon Project" . It doesn't ask much of us to show a simple act of caring and we may not always know whose lives we've touched or improved. What is important is that we cared enough to Be The Difference.
Every year Boys' Town has a flag day to help fund its programmes and activities. This year we will be raising funds for our new building which will house new dormitories for our boys. Presently, there are cracks, leaks, damaged floor tiles and inadequate shower facilities. Thus there is a need to upgrade the facilities for the boys so that they can receive better care during their stay with us.
As such, we are appealing to you for assistance in one or more of the following:
|To help us raise funds by signing up to volunteer for our Flag Day on 16 September 2011|
|To collect Fundraising tins or distribute our Building appeal envelopes for internal collection within your family/friends/organisation.|
|To make a direct contribution to our building fund (please note that donations are tax-exempt)|
