Christmas Giving: School Shoes for Kids

Christmas Giving: School Shoes for Kids


Christmas is here and would you believe that approximately 800 Hong Kong children living in extreme poverty have asked for nothing more than a pair of shoes as a gift? This breaks our hearts that our community has to live like this. ☹️

YAMA Foundation has supported Society for Community Organisation (SoCO) for the past five years, by buying shoe vouchers for children every Christmas so they can choose a brand new pair of shoes that they like for Christmas.

If you would like to support our effort, please purchase a pair of shoes online. You will receive a sample voucher, but we will be taking each and every dollar to purchase as many shoes we can based on what we raise here.

Thanks so much for your support!

YAMA Foundation acts as an intermediary, collecting the funds for the shoes on behalf of SoCO, and then going out to purchase the shoe vouchers together with a SoCO representative. This is a simple act of kindness. If you choose to participate, please know that you are doing so at your own free will based on the information we have provided.

Cost of shoes: $220/pair + 6% handling fee. Any and all excess funds will go directly towards purchasing additional shoe vouchers.

You are free to donate directly to SoCO should you wish and not go via our organisation.

You will receive an email receipt from YAMA Foundation upon purchase via our website operator Squarespace. YAMA Foundation Ltd. is a registered non-profit in Hong Kong limited by guarantee. We are under the application process for Section 88 Tax Exemption but are not yet a registered charity.
