26/04/2015 JCI Island Flagship Project O! Love Tour Walkathon

  • From 3rd – 5th July 2015, JCI Island will sponsor 20 singleton elderly who are over 60 years old (fully subsidized) and 20 university students (partially subsidized) on a one-to-one matching basis for a 3-day-2-night Taipei trip. The objectives of this project are:

    1. to spread the messages of Love and integration of generation;

    2. to make the singleton elderly’s dream to travel oversea by plane come true; and

    3. to increase the social awareness on the singleton elderly issues.

    Everyone has his/her own dream, so does the singleton elderly in our community. We believe that every individual’s dream should be respected, it doesn’t matter who they are and how old they are! To make dream possible for the singleton elderly, we need your enthusiastic support!

13/04/2015 THANK YOU - A Big Step in LIKEfunding campaign

  • In March 2015, we launched a crowded-funding campaign via LIKEfunding by collecting LIKE from our surrounding friends and public. Each LIKE we collect, HK Share News (股新聞) will donate HK$2 to our project. Eventually, this campaign not only raises funds from the public, but also increase the awareness on aging population problem in Hong Kong. Overall, we had reached 2084 individual audiences and raised 1,380 likes or HK$2,760 equivalently. 

    We would like to express our genuine gratitude and thank for everyone's support and involvement in this project. For those who are interested to donate to our project and make the elderly dreams come true, you could make the donation via indiegogo.

02/03/2015 「O! Love Tour 2015」launched crowdfunding campaign

  • In 2015, the more elderly we target to sponsor, the more funds we need to raise. JCI Island pioneered to use crowdfunding platform not only to benefit O! Love Tour, but also further promote this project to the public to arouse the awareness on community issue - singleton elderly in Hong Kong.

    For every HK$3000 (or US$400) we raise, we are making a singleton elderly's dream comes true. To most singleton elderly, traveling overseas could possibly be their once in a lifetime experience. DONATE NOW and make the elderly dreams come true.
