Let us re-gift!

I am so grateful to be working very closely with two amazing charities, FeedingHK and PathFinders. When I visit the office, I am inspired by the work that they do on a daily basis to help those in need, right here in Hong Kong. This Christmas, in keeping with the giving and ‘waste not’ spirit, I hope we can help fill some basic office needs of these two charities who work tirelessly to serve the community.
I got the idea of re-gifting when I noticed that black and blue pens were hard to find around the office. They were either running out of ink or multi-colored. I asked the office staff why there were only green pens lying around and she replied, “because they were donated (with a sweet smile)”. When I got home, I gathered all the pens I’ve collected while traveling or attending seminars and compiled a nice pack that will eventually be of much use for somebody else. The same thing happened at FeedingHK with mugs and utensils. I’m sure all of you have stuff lying around the house that would love to find a new home too. It’s a small ask, but makes life that much easier for the people behind these wonderful charities.

Gently used or new items would be perfect!
