Only $5 to Yellow Ribbon Project for $35 entry fee collected. Can this be true?

    The Yellow Ribbon Project is a worthy cause that should be supported as it helps to unlock the second prison for ex-offenders through its reintegration efforts.

    The Yellow Ribbon Prison Run, which is in its fourth year, is one of the fundraising events for the project.

    The registration fees this year are S$30 and S$35 for the 6km Fun Run and 10km Competitive Run, respectively.

    It is shocking that only S$5 of the fee goes to the Yellow Ribbon Fund.

    This begs the question of whether the organisers have got it right.

    How do the organisers justify this? Where do the rest of the fees go to?

    That's a very long established restaurant. Wonder where Ah Ram is hiding? Haven't read his posts for awhile. Maybe on some special assignment classified TOP SECRET.

    hi there


    1. honest, this is exactly why no one should trust & participate in such thing.
    2. the deserving recipients receive the bare minimum from the fund raised.
    3. daft sheep,dogs & snakes get the biggest piece of the pie.
    4. yes, sick to the core!

    maybe they cannot get sponsors for the event. If so, mean the goodies bag must be lousy.

    Yaya, then you might as well the CEO pay of 200k and all the directors' pay is also justified. No wonder with people like you, the gov and DBS keeps setting up foundations and charity to avoid income taxes.
