2014 Hong Kong Volunteers Milestone Review
December 20, 2014
With another record setting year, 2014 proved to be a phenomenal year for the Hong Kong Volunteers. This year saw the intake levels almost double with 5,600 members and 571 events held, the Hong Kong Volunteers has experienced an increased growth with each year. This is all due from an increase to 12 assistant organizers. This made it possible to have an average of about 2 events per day throughout the year, as well as our star achievers, Janet Wai, and our double agent, King Lau, who together held over 500 events. This will lead the group to do even more in the coming year, and the actions of all individuals involved have undoubtedly demonstrated the values and determination of the Hong Kong Volunteers when it comes to the concern they have for the local community.
Furthermore, the Hong Kong Volunteers have won their 3rd gold medal from the Hong Kong Cleanup Challenge, and have more than matched their target by raising over $1,000,000 with the Hong Kong Hiking Meetup group for the Oxfam Trailwalker along with the 30 teams entered and supported. The support doesn’t end there as volunteers help clean up the OTW 100km trail through the supervision of Speeto. Other fundraising examples include contributing efforts together with other organizations rasing $300,000 for Unison Hikathon, raising $2,500,00 for Room to Read vis MoonTrekker and raising $1,500,000 for Hong Chi Association.

Today, we can proudly say that we can accomplish this with a volunteer base of over 5000 members who will continue to show their determination.
We look forward to more voluntary activities in 2015. We also extend our thanks to retiring several assistant organizers who have contributed their time and efforts in making Hong Kong Volunteers what it is today. Most of all, we'd like to thank all of you, our members, for your participation and help in spreading the volunteering spirit through the Hong Kong Volunteers which only brings successful reports from the organizations needing volunteers.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year... See you in 2015
