Will the rich help the poor in $ingapore?
The nation-builder press, May 18 2002
This is what the report said: "A group of private individuals is starting a charity campaign to raise $200 million a year by encouraging $ingapores super-rich to surrender their Economic Restructuring Shares [ERS].
"The reason? To show that some well-off $ingaporeans are not averse to giving their money to a good cause."
"Its been 204
days since that report and we are still waiting for an update."

also said: "PM Goh Chok Tong had, in Dec 2000, announced a similar initiative,
asking people and companies to donate 0.5 per cent of their incomes or profits
to charity." We also do not recall any updates on this matter.
