Sassy Mama Supports: Sharing For a Cause

What's OnPost Category - What's OnWhat's On - Post Category - Community InvolvementCommunity Involvement

It always warms our hearts to see our little citizens do-gooding around town and this entirely student-led campaign is one that we’re big fans of. If you didn’t already know, Hong Kong struggles with the largest wealth gap in the world with 21% of our population living in poverty. Kids4Kids‘ initiative Sharing For a Cause is our youth’s answer to those families suffering from economic inequality, run by Miguel Borje from Renaissance College and Julie Shi from West Island School, and they’re all about improving the welfare of families here in the 852.

So what does Sharing for a Cause do?

Working hand in hand with Crossroads and Kerry Logistics, the caring students behind Sharing for a Cause aim to provide families across Hong Kong with household necessities that they might not be able to afford. With over 160 boxes full of household appliances, toys and sports goods as well as 36,000 stationery sets and 500,000 books safely delivered to happy homes, it’s all down to the compassion of these children who stay afterschool to make sure it all happens.

What are the main aims and goals of the campaign?

Hong Kong is suffering from a crisis of invisible poverty with a whopping 224,000 people unable to afford household appliances and Sharing for a Cause aims to provide every single family with them. This year’s theme is ‘For Kids and For Home’ and they’re hoping to reach out to even more people this year by raising more donations than ever before – which is where you come in!

What can you do to help?

Between May 1-29, Sharing For a Cause is gathering donations at a number of collection points around Hong Kong both at schools and in public areas, which are going to be announced shortly so keep an eye on their website. They’re looking for household appliances or toys smaller than 50 x 50 cm (no perishables or sharp objects mama!) and all you have to do is bring over to one of those areas, where Sharing for a Cause members and Crossroads will sort everything out. Alternately if you’re interested in hosting one of these collection sites, you can shoot over here to apply.

So start digging through your old things, head over to Fortress or order a few boxes to get involved mama. After all, sharing is caring!
