The Henry Fok Pearl Jubilee College (HFPJC) House Association recently organized a Charity Bazaar to raise funds for their upcoming community service and charity events, including service learning and voluntary teaching in Guizhou, and place visits to the orphans. The House Association hoped that students can apply their creativity and develop a sense of social responsibility through this activity.
Before the Charity Bazaar, HFPJC’s House Association organized several handicraft workshops, included making handmade leather bracelets, bookmarks, DIY mobile phone shell, hand-drawing fans and organic mosquito repellents. Student volunteers set up booths on the campus from 18 to 20 November to sell those handmade products.
The Charity Bazaar was a huge success! Products were sold out so quickly that additional workshops had been held for a continuously supply of handicrafts and tailor-made service. Finally, more than 10,000 patacas have been raised.
This Charity Bazaar is a charitable event which aims at raising students’ social responsibilities, learning craftsmanship stills, developing creativity and experiencing the meaning of “Giving is more blessed than receiving”.
