Put on your hiking shoes and show your care to the community Sunday 16 October 2011
As a Caring Company and a keen advocate of CSR, CPA Australia invites you to join us for a healthy and meaningful event – our first CPA Australia ‘Caring for the community’ Walkathon & Photo Competition on 16 October.
This event provides a great opportunity for you to contribute to a charitable cause, meet other CPA Australia members, and help us spread the message of caring for the community. It also includes a photo competition where you can exercise your creativity and win a prize!
Our charity cause:
Your participation fee will be donated to help the work of Jubilee Ministries in providing basic food staples to support low-income families and elderly in the area most reliant on CSSA in Hong Kong – Kwun Tong district.
According to an Oxfam survey from May to July, 1 out of 6 low-income families with children below 15 are afflicted by hunger and have to feed on leftovers. Data collected from The Hong Kong Council of Social Service shows that these 4-5 member families can only spare $25 for a meal, making it difficult to sustain themselves as food prices continue to rise at an estimated inflationary rate of 7-8% this year.
