SINGAPORE, July 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The Kidney Dialysis Foundation (KDF) is set to revolutionise its annual Flag Day event on 15 July 2023 by introducing over 50 cutting-edge GivePlease donation terminals alongside traditional donation tins.

Flag Day holds immense significance for KDF, with volunteers and donors traditionally contributing through donation tins. While KDF recognises the enduring impact of these traditional methods, the foundation is taking a leap forward to meet the evolving preferences of donors, particularly the tech-savvy audience, by incorporating GivePlease donation terminals into the event. 

GivePlease donation terminals provide a modern and intuitive platform, designed specifically for donors who prefer seamless digital transactions. Developed with a built-in secure payment engine and innovative integration to GovTech Singpass, donors can effortlessly submit their particulars via Singpass QR code scanning and receive tax deduction benefits after giving to KDF. These state-of-the-art terminals will be strategically placed at various locations, making it easier than ever for individuals to contribute to KDF’s cause.

Mr. Raymond Lim, General Manager of the Kidney Dialysis Foundation, expressed his enthusiasm for the initiative, stating, “The introduction of GivePlease donation terminals during Flag Day signifies our unwavering commitment to innovation and exploring new avenues for fundraising.”

“This initiative reflects our commitment to embrace innovation and cater to the evolving preferences of our supporters. By blending technology with tradition, we are transforming the way people donate and ensuring that every contribution makes a meaningful difference in the lives of kidney patients,” he added.

With the adoption of GivePlease donation terminals, KDF aims to harness the power of technology and tap into the digital landscape to raise funds to help provide affordable and quality care for kidney patients. 

As Flag Day approaches, KDF invites individuals from all walks of life to participate in this remarkable event and contribute to the well-being of kidney patients in Singapore. Whether donors choose the convenience of the GivePlease donation terminals or the familiarity of the donation tins, every contribution counts and creates a significant impact on the lives of those affected by kidney disease.

The Flag Day event will be held on 15 July 2023, with a fundraising goal of $50,000 for needy kidney patients in Singapore. Funds raised will go into providing underprivileged kidney patients with treatments, medication, transport, and holistic care, as well as support the Foundation’s outreach efforts to increase awareness of kidney health.
