Support ImpactHK’s Campaign To End Homelessness This Winter

Charity Fundraising Event

2022 Nov 11 - 2022 Dec 25

Charity fundraiser hong kong 2022

ImpactHK is launching their No One Is Forgotten This Winter campaign and they need your help! The campaign is aimed at raising awareness, funds and compassion for those experiencing homelessness in Hong Kong. From November to December 25, 2022 the objective is to raise HKD$1 million for outreach activities in 2023. 

Homelessness in Hong Kong – some key figures:

  • In Hong Kong, one in four people live in poverty.
  • More than 1,500 people are currently sleeping rough in Hong Kong (and this is only part of the picture as many are unaccounted for)
  • Rough sleeping has increased +22% since 2019
  • Average waiting times for public housing is around 5.5 years

With this winter campaign, ImpactHK hopes to help those who need it the most. The funds raised will help run 900 Kindness Walks next year, serving 520 people each week across 14 districts. 

How you can help:

There are many ways you can help: you can plan a fundraising fancy dress day,  sponsored silence, bake sale or even a sponsored hike or run. Other ideas on how to donate or fundraise:

    1. Take Away Camping Fundraiser: on the 3rd December, 2022, ImpactHK’s Founder & CEO Jeff Rotmeyer will be camping in Lantau. The more you can raise or donate, the less camping equipment he will sleep with and less food he will have. For more information click here.
    2. Stay Awake For Homelessness: participate in a challenge to stay awake for 24 hours and have people sponsor you, as you raise awareness of what it is like to sleep rough on the busy and bustling streets of Hong Kong.  Target raising HK$1,000 per hour as you finish that boxset you’ve always wanted to watch –  you’ll have raised HK$24,000!
    3. Barefoot Challenge: Walk (a little over = 2km) a mile in someone else’s shoes. Many individuals sleeping rough cannot afford basic necessities, like proper shoes or clothing. Pick an easy path or hike (that is preferably paved) and have people sponsor you as you walk barefoot for 2km.
