10x10 Hong Kong
10 x 10 Hong Kong
27 April 2017
Hong Kong was the first Asian city to host a 10x10 event last year and tonight they are providing this platform once again for local charities and social enterprises to promote their cause to a room of socially-minded professionals! For this event the committee members have chosen 3 exceptional charities under a theme of ‘Invisible Hong Kong’.
Hong Kong is one of the world’s most dynamic urban economic and cultural centres, yet amidst great affluence, serious problems lie under the surface. Staggeringly almost 20% of Hong Kong’s population live below the poverty line, struggling to access basic goods and services including safe and clean housing. One in six people in Hong Kong suffer from mental illness, which is highly stigmatized and often goes undiagnosed for years. Abuse or exploitation affecting the community of more than 300,000 domestic helpers has been called Hong Kong's "hidden shame". Although these problems may be largely unseen by a majority of the population, this 10x10 event seeks to take these invisible problems into the light.
The three charities that will be pitching on the evening are Mission for Migrant Workers, Society for Community Organization and The Richmond Fellowship of Hong Kong.
KRYSTAL Nature's Alkaline Water is honored to be put some effort in this meaningful event as the bottled water sponsor. This unique charity event will be hosted in a fun ‘Dragons Den’ style meaning that 3 innovative grassroots local charities will make a pitch to the audience and then each audience member pledges and decide where their money goes. Thank 10x10 Philanthropy for organising this charity event, KRYSTAL hopes you all enjoy the night with our water.
