Updates for "NUS Stand Up Against Poverty"

For those of you all who are interested in going for the event but do not have access to the event's Facebook group (i.e. where I got the updates from).

Update No.1

The event is still on the same day and at the same venue (i.e. 16/10/2008 at NUS FASS LT8) but is shifted forward by half an hour i.e. the event will start at 6.00pm and not 6.30pm

Update No. 2

From 5.30pm onwards, information booths by ONE Singapore, Transient Workers Count Too (TWC2) and the World Toilet Organisation will be set up (outside the venue, I assume)
