To all you mummies out there in HK land!
Are you looking for a charity to support or a way to make a difference in the lives of children who really need your help? We need you!
KIDS for Kids need your help to raise HK$2,709,900 for the Hong Kong Society for the Protection of Children (HKSPC): Children?s Residential Home (CRH) which is in desperate need of renovations In total, that's about US$350,000 or ?210,000.
WHO IS KIDS FOR KIDS?
KIDS for Kids has developed from ?Mothers & Babies 07?, which was founded by women who met on, and supported each other through, the Geobaby Forum while pregnant in 2007. The group currently has members with origins from almost every continent in the world.
In celebration of our babies 1st birthdays between September and December 2008, we honoured them with a legacy to ?directly impact the lives of children in need?. To do this we decided to begin raising money for the HKSPC Children?s Residential Home.
Utilizing our personal financial resources we have since raised over HK$50,000 for much needed items for the Children?s Residential Home including:
? 200 winter jackets
? 5 Easy-Ride first Trikes for 1-3 year olds
? 6 months worth of medical supplies
Our aim is also to seek sponsorship and further ?exposure? of the organization within the community. We hope that through highlighting the needs of these precious children then other people might want to help in whichever way they can. And so we are appealing to all people that care for children - not just those who are mothers.
WHY IS THE RENOVATION URGENTLY NEEDED?
The Hong Kong Society for the Protection of Children: Children?s Residential Home is located in Sham Shui Po, one of the poorest neighborhoods in Hong Kong. Currently there are 100 babies and children up to the age of three living in poor ventilated and cramped conditions.
