This afternoon, I attended a very enjoyable and meaningful charity function at the IFC.
I didn't know that for the past 20 years, Hong Kong's English radio channel, RTHK Channel 4, and English newspaper, SCMP, have jointly and continuously organized an "Operation Santa Claus" to raise funds for those small and unnoticeable organizations that need help in Hong Kong. This year's beneficiary is the Kwai Chung Youth Centre and the sponsor is Starbucks Coffee.
I guess the funds raised would not be too substantial even though the campaign had started at the beginning of December. They are targeting to raise HK$200,000, but whether they can reach their target amount or not, I still think it is a good cause and a good act to try to raise people's awareness to those needy and less privileged during the festive seasons. I agree 100% with Jet Li's theory that if ALL OF US would contribute just a dollar to help the poor, the world would have a lot less poverty...
And of course, the most enjoyable part this afternoon was to sit amongst old and new friends and listen to Eugene's live jazz music! He and his buddy Mike were simply MAGICALLLL! It was like having a massage to your soul! Here are a few pix to share with you
(Oh, on the way out at IFC, I bumped into Marsha Yuan and her sister as well. I'm so glad that she is having a happy family reunion in Hong Kong right now! )
