2013 Box of Hope Project
Box of Hope is an annual charity project. Donors fill boxes with a combination of new toys, educational supplies and hygiene items. The boxes will then be collected and distributed to underprivileged children; some of them have never received a gift.
Through its website (http://boxofhope.org/info/recipients/hongkong/en/), you can find the list of recipients in Hong Kong.
RHSOSA Charity Team is working together with students from Rosaryhill School (Primary Section) to participate in this meaningful project. The students will donate pencils, toothbrush and toothpaste, and are responsible to decorate the boxes.
However, the size of each box is equivalent to a shoe box, and we need more gifts to fill up about 100 boxes.
We sincerely invite your participation in this project by donating the following four categories of gifts (or even cash for us to purchase the items) and we would fill up the boxes prepared by the students:
1) TOYS - something to love - Bears, soft toys, tennis balls, finger puppets, jigsaws, yoyos, small musical instruments, torches (including batteries), playing cards, small trucks and cars, dolls, jewelry, make-ups, hair accessories.
2) EDUCATIONAL SUPPLIES - something to do - books - (simple English), Felt pens, pens, pencils, pencil sharpeners, rubbers, coloring books, notepads, picture/puzzle books, chalks, pencil cases, stickers, calculators, etc.
3) HYGIENE ITEMS - something to use - Toothbrushes & toothpaste, hairbrushes, combs, hair clips, bars of wrapped soap, flannels. NO LIQUIDS PLEASE.
4) OTHER ITEMS - something to wear - Sunglasses, caps, sun hats, bangles, necklaces, watches etc...
To donate or inquire, please feel free to contact Mr. Preston Lui (9773-6870) on or before 11 October 2013 (Friday), so that we can arrange the pick up of the gifts over the long weekend.
We are sure that your generosity will certainly be of great help to the success of the project.
