The Charitable Choice Chronicles - February 2022

HK$2,380,000 raised, 4930 cookies sold and online giving here to stay

With your help, we raised a record $2.38 million for local charities in 2021, a rewarding way to celebrate our 10th anniversary year! We also sold 4,930 fortune cookies and over $73,000 worth of festive charity gift cards. All of this helped us exceed our $2 million target. On behalf of all of our charity partners, THANK YOU for making a charitable choice.

With yet another round of social distancing restrictions in place, online giving may be the only way for our charity partners to raise funds for their programmes. We make online giving so easy - click here and be empowered to do something inspirational while staying at home!

The Charitable Choice team would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a resilient, courageous and healthy Year of the Tiger (thanks to our volunteer Bertha Sun for the tigerific designs!)
