Hongbaos are a Chinese New Year tradition; a red envelope with a monetary gift given during holidays or special occasions. As part of our Chinese New Year Celebrations, we gathered hongbaos to donate to our local partner project, Heart to Heart.
This year we are pleased to announce that we have surpassed the figure raised from last year with a fantastic 20,830RMB. We would like to thank everyone in our community who has supported this campaign and for your generosity.
