WHAT & WHO ARE WE RAISING FUNDS FOR
OCEAN RECOVERY ALLIANCE
It is important for us to make a tangible and direct impact that connects us all. Therefore, there are 3 things we focus on when it comes to choosing our entity to support and partner with. "Inspiration, Innovation & Integrity". Our key grassroots environmental charity "Ocean Recovery Alliance" fits the bill just right.
A great place we find inspiration is "ORA" - a unique, annual, global forum that brings social innovators, game-changers, corporations and investors together to focus on practical solutions, circular economy and the future of plastic. For more information regarding the forum and all the great lots of contributions they've done already, please visit plasticity.global.
Here is a long list of "ORA" on-going community programs. To name a few:
To learn from the leading experts who are working on solutions for the issue of marine litter
The Recycling Rooster" play for local Cambodian to engage on recycling and waste reduction.
Over 1,600 children created a giant shark on the beach at Repulse Bay annually to create Ocean Awareness for the Next Generation
Furthermore, Your donation will be allocated to serve the ultimate purpose of funding marine projects that meet UN SDG Goal 14: Life Below Water with our developing grant program "The innovation fund", which will be used specifically to nurture passionate social entrepreneurs and it is aimed to help kick start bold ideas or newer products that are already in the market that improve oceans with lasting and practical effects.
A tax-deductible donation receipt can be issued via "ORA" on request for donors contribute over HK$ 500.
