The biggest challenge for NGOs in organizing Flag Day is the process of counting and collecting flag bags. If they manage their flag bags in a more effective way, they can have a better use of resources to aim for a higher fund-raising target.
Flag Bag Easy (FBE) is organized by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service with the sponsor of 2013/14 Sector-specific Programme (Logistics) by The Office of the Government Chief Information Officer, the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. The program consists of an online system and mobile application to assist NGOs to manage the flag bags. NGOs can collect volunteers’data and generate Flag Bag unique QR codes at the backstage online system while Station volunteers can collect and count the flag bags easily by using our FBE mobile application.
