"Operation Santa Claus (OSC) 2009" has proved to be a remarkable show of warmth and concern for those in need. We raised HK$11,302,067 for 13 beneficiaries through donations and charity events in the past two months.

Starting from mid-November, community and donor events inspired hundreds of individuals . Exciting events included squash, football and golf tournaments, and many other initiatives proposed by individuals and corporations. A Chinese family made an anonymous HK$1 million donation. Over the past years, OSC has secured support from corporations like Morgan Stanley and Merrill Lynch. Morgan Stanley is our top donor this year with HK$1.9 million raised. Schools’ participation was also very encouraging, with 27 schools raising almost HK$400,000.
