2020 in review - what an impact!

Did you know that with your generosity in 2020, we collectively raised nearly HK$2 million in donations to support our 48 charity partners? This is the most we’ve facilitated in any one year for our charity partners since our inception in 2010, and we’re extremely proud of this achievement.

Despite a challenging year, you have continued to support our charity partners by purchasing charity gift cards, setting up fundraising pages, and making donations through our digital charity giving platform.

A big thank you to all our supporters. Together we made a difference last year!

Try our new monthly donation function, upload your own image when sending gift cards or visit our new Charity Hero site for children.  We encourage you to try these new functions and to make a small online donation to show that you care for the community that we live in.
