The Singapore government announced a couple of days ago that it was donating $500,000 to Japan, towards aid efforts.
Today, a Singapore woman bested them by giving double, $1 million. No press release, no announcement. The Japanese embassy had to hastily arrange a ceremonial handing over of the cheque for her, and only because the Japanese Association told them of the fat cheque.
Phooey to the government. I hope they at least give the woman a tax break.
My office is organising a charity drive for the Red Cross. Hope it shows the government what-for too.
