Join us on 20 May at 5:30pm for a digital event in support of three incredible local Hong Kong charities;
Feeding Hong Kong, ImpactHK and RUN.
Hong Kong, we’re back! This is our first event since 2018 and we’d love for you to join us online for an evening of fun and philanthropy to raise funds, volunteers and awareness for organizations that are fighting hunger in the city, helping those experiencing homelessness and supporting refugees and asylum seekers.
Hosted by John Dawson &
10×10’s Head of Hong Kong, Inna Rodchenko-Highfield
Featuring live performances by our special guests:
• Friends of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra
• Svetlana Ponomareva
• Masha Gromova
• Nazar Tabachyshyn
• Nathan Yuen
There’s also going to be a lucky draw – anyone who makes a donation will be automatically entered into the draw. The funds raised will be distributed evenly between the three organisations – it’s all part of the 10×10 fun!
Feeding Hong Kong‘s mission is to fight hunger in the city and reduce the amount of quality food being sent to our landfills. Each day they collect high quality food that would otherwise be thrown away, sort and store it, and then redistribute it to a network of welfare organisations, who in turn feed thousands of people in need.
Feeding Hong Kong also works to raise awareness about poverty and insecurity and promote healthy eating and nutritional education to the most vulnerable groups in our community.
ImpactHK works with people experiencing homelessness to help them settle in a safe home, restore their mental and physical wellbeing, build their self-esteem and discover their purpose.
To do this, they provide direct holistic support to people experiencing homelessness and empower them to transform their lives. This includes employment training, education, food, shelter, emotional support and much more. At the same time, ImpactHK build community connections to increase collective understanding of homelessness and empathy towards the people who experience it.
Since October 2015, Run Hong Kong (RUN)’s mission is to rehabilitate vulnerable refugees and asylum seekers through sports, education, and beyond.
RUN’s programmes centre on three goals: Rebuild the mental and physical strength of its participants, Unite them as a community and promote understanding with the local community, and Nurture them into a more hopeful future through life skills and education.
MEET THE 10x10 HONG KONG PROJECT COMMITTEE
Looking for a way to get more meaningfully involved with your community?
Here’s how you can get involved with Feeding HK, ImpactHK and RUN.
10×10 is powered by young professionals who have volunteered their time and resources to launch a crowdfunding event to support charities doing compelling community work.
10×10 connects volunteers at a local community level and together they produce live crowdfunding ‘Shark Tank’ style events which are attended by 100+ people. Each committee identifies three grassroots charities and invites them to pitch for funds from the event audience.
The event is supported by 10×10 – a 100% volunteer run organisation working to empower a new generation of passionate philanthropists and create a sustainable movement for grassroots giving.
