For the third consecutive year, we partnered with the philanthropic enterprise 10 x 10, which hosts live crowdfunding events to benefit grassroots charities in Hong Kong. The talks, the lively Q&A session and the wining and dining – followed by generous donations to worthy causes – combine to create one of the best events of the year.
The 10 x 10 committee members chose three exceptional charities this year and invited representatives from Sprouts Foundation (educational programmes), Rooftop Republic (urban farming) and The Brightly Project (student suicide prevention) to speak about what they do and how they’d use the money raised that night – which they did with a passion.
When it first started, the event aimed to raise at least HK$100,000 at each staging. This year, records were shattered, with more than HK$400,000 being raised during that single evening – hence each participating charity received over HK$100,000 in donations.
