EVERY Singaporean child born next year will receive a special Jubilee Baby Gift to mark the 50th anniversary of the country’s independence.
The gift will be “a uniquely-Singaporean keepsake filled with practical yet symbolic items for our Golden Jubilee babies”, said Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office Grace Fu, who oversees population issues, on Tuesday.
Its exact contents will be up to Singaporeans to suggest. People with ideas are asked to send them to the National Population and Talent Division over the next seven weeks, until May 15.
A five-member panel led by Families for Life council member Anita Fam will advise on the suitability of the suggestions.
A list of the top ideas will be drawn up for people to vote and those with the most votes will be included in the gift set.
This newest call for gift ideas comes about a week after the end of an earlier call for ideas to celebrate Singapore’s golden jubilee. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
