The Charitable Choice Chronicles - June 2020

In these challenging times the Charitable Choice team has been strategizing about how we can provide a better service to our users as well as our charity beneficiaries and engaging in some much-needed spring cleaning. I'm sure many of you can relate.
 
We've welcomed Nifraz Rifaz to our Board of Directors, commenced a website improvement project and WOW you should see our spick-and-span office - think Marie Kondo meets 10 years of paper files.
 
Our charity beneficiaries continue to need your support so please do take the time to visit our website to #FindYourCause. Every small donation counts. Read our Chronicles for more inspiration on charitable giving!

The Charitable Choice Chronicles - March 2020

Hope you are all staying healthy and safe.  In these challenging times it was certainly nice to receive some good news from Hong Kong's Financial Secretary on 26 February, 2020, announcing the HK$10,000 payment to Hong Kong Permanent Residents, as well as the profits tax waiver for businesses! Whilst we warmly welcome these alleviation measures, we'd also like to suggest that recipients consider donating some of this windfall to those less fortunate.  Often overlooked during troubled times, the underprivileged need our help. Many of our charity partners are appealing for donations - however small - to help them and their beneficiaries cope with this crisis.

Please consider making a donation via Charitable Choice to one or more charities of your choice, or make it more fun and gift your friends and family with eCards so they can then choose charities to support!  Every little bit helps.
