Help make a difference by shopping for a cause!

Having an active lifestyle which includes running, playing sports, dancing, hiking or any other form of exercise helps one destress, focus and create balance. Team sports in particular can help young children develop respect, communication, bonds, and strength (both mental and physical). Book Jar‘s support for Love 21 Foundation, gives youngsters with Down Syndrome in Hong Kong the opportunity to experience this healthy lifestyle through team sports!

What is Love 21 Foundation?

Love 21 Foundation is a registered charity in Hong Kong focused on creating sports programs for young people with Down Syndrome and autism. This foundation was made to help these youngsters build a healthy lifestyle and benefit from participating in team sports; which can help develop a sense of respect, communication, bonds, and more. The programs are based on Love 21 Foundation’s eight year track record and the methods used are established by skilled teachers. In the future they look to initiate a series of programs beginning with football and nutrition. These educational and fun courses are ordinarily conducted in English and free to anyone ready to commit to regular participation.
