1.         What is this “HomeTeamNS Celebrates Life” campaign about?

The “HomeTeamNS Celebrates Life” campaign serves to recognise Singapore Police Force (SPF) and Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) National Servicemen (NSmen) and their families by celebrating life’s simple pleasures in a big way. Hence, we are giving away 20,000 limited edition figurines as one of the unique ways to show our appreciation towards our NSmen’s contributions in making Singapore safe and secure.

This initiative mirrors the Association’s new brand values – to offer fun-filled activities, personal development opportunities, exclusive membership privileges as well as a place for NSmen to bond with their fellow buddies and families. It is also in line with our HomeTeamNS 10th year anniversary and SG50 celebrations next year.

To enjoy all the privileges HomeTeamNS has to offer, we encourage all Home Team NSmen to <Sign Up> with us!

2.         What do the little figurines represent?
The little figurines represent the closest people in our life that we wish to protect as well as serve as an effervescent reminder why we call Singapore our home. In addition, each little figurine was carefully handcrafted to ensure that every piece is unique to illustrate certain life values that is synonymous with our newly transformed brand. The table below provides a summary of life values that each little figurine symbolises.
