Keep SG Funpack postcard for SG50 goodie bag collection

SINGAPORE - Those who want to collect their National Day goodie bag will have to keep a postcard the People's Association is now sending out to local households.

Residents will have to use the postcard to exchange for their SG Funpack at events held by local grassroots organisations, who will from next week give more details on the collection.

Every Singaporean and permanent resident household - about 1.2 million in all - will receive the goodie bag.

Grassroots leaders may make special delivery arrangements of the SG Funpack to senior residents and those who have movement difficulties.

The SG Funpack comes in 50 different designs and the tote bag will contain memorabilia from Singapore's yesteryear. The items include items used for games like erasers with countries' flags on them and capteh (weighted shuttlecock) and snacks such as muruku and haw flakes.

There will also be keepsakes like a figurine of Singa, the iconic mascot of the Singapore Kindness Movement.

Each funpack cost about $8 to produce and assemble. Parade-goers will receive a different funpack on the day.
