The TFWA Lounge at Carlton Beach was dedicated to Women in Travel Retail (WiTR) yesterday evening, which is aiming to raise €20,000 for Impact Hong Kong.
The charity helps women experiencing homelessness to settle in a safe home, restore their mental and physical wellbeing, build their self-esteem and social capital, and discover their purpose.
At the TFWA Lounge, guests were invited to make a voluntary contribution to the charity, with all welcome to come along and enjoy the evening.
Interparfums generously donated €10,000, while Mondelez World Travel Retail generously donated €5,000.
More information about Impact Hong Kong
ImpactHK became a registered charity in March 2017 but never began with that aim. Its founder, Jeff Rotmeyer, had the idea of doing one act of kindness per month for the homeless and began by walking the streets of the more impoverished areas of Hong Kong handing out supplies to those in need. The initiative touched the hearts of volunteers throughout Hong Kong and became quite popular – giving ImpactHK the opportunity to make great impact. It progressed to two walks a month, then four, and so on. ImpactHK now does 50 walks per month in six locations across Hong Kong and is built upon the kindness of hundreds of passionate volunteers. Its numbers bring power and the opportunity to create massive change – not only by positively helping homeless individuals in Hong Kong, but also by changing the face of philanthropy in the territory.
