Christmas is coming! While we are looking forward to the joy of the festival: cool stuff we will get, delicious food and treats, and lots of time to enjoy life and have fun with family and friends; let’s extend our generosity to share joy and happiness with underprivileged and disadvantaged people in this festive season through warm donations.
Operation Santa Claus (OSC) has been jointly organised by the South China Morning Post (SCMP) and Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) to help many indigent charities since 1989. It generally favours smaller charities (NGO) operating without help from the government or other large patrons and providing services to children & youth support, community care, senior services, medical assistance, mentally challenged or physical disability support. Funds raised by OSC are awarded to programs and activities which improve the quality of living for a diversity of people, provide support and assistance to the needy and benefit many people each year.
This year, a fundraising campaign, namely “GINGERHEART”, led by a team of 7 MBA students from University of Manchester is being held from 18 November 2016 to 31 December 2016 to raise funds for OSC. All proceeds will be used to support activities and programs of the 22 pre-selected NGO charities in 2017.
As one of the supporting organizations, DragoNation is calling for your generous support for this fundraising campaign at http://www.gheart2016.com/donation/. In appreciation of your kind donation, you will get a Christmas gift* with gratitude from the prestige sponsors if you could meet up in Hong Kong, Kowloon or the New Territories area with the volunteer Santa Claus.
Please follow them on the GINGERHEART website (http://gheart2016.com), Facebook fans page (Ginger HEART) and Instagram (#GHEART2016) for any upcoming activity and the latest movement. You may also visit them at the OSC Christmas Street Fair in Wan Chai on 26 November 2016 or in Taikoo Place on 1 December 2016 to support in person.
We wish you a merry Christmas and sincerely hope that you will spread love, care and blessings to the needy through donations and honour Christmas in a meaningful way.
Warm Your Heart．Spice Your Xmas!!
