Street Fundraising

Plan International Hong Kong is conducting street fundraising programme in different parts of the city. Our enthusiastic and energetic fundraising teams welcome detailed face-to-face discussions with people on Plan’s work and mission, and work tirelessly to help recruit monthly donors. With the support of monthly donors, Plan can implement lasting and sustainable development programmes in the communities of sponsored children, so that the children, their families and their communities can all be benefited. 

Apart from our fundraising ambassadors, we have also appointed Able Solution Consultants Co Ltd., Mission Support Limited and MVP Consultants & Development Limited to help us develop professional fundraising capacity. Our fundraisers are delighted to introduce to you our work for children and how you can become a child sponsor!

Every day, we meet different kinds of people and they have different reactions to street fundraising. Some citizens show their generosity; some just pass by in a rush. It is discouraging when we get rejected. However, I believe with our determination and hard work, more underprivileged children will be helped and benefited. Therefore, we appreciate people who stop and listen to our presentation. We seize every opportunity to explain Plan International’s work to them, hoping that they would give their support to Plan international and children in need, creating positive changes to the children’s lives.

I still remember when I was being mocked and criticized by citizens at work. However, my determination to help more children in need has kept me going. 

I have gained more than I lost from this job. I need to spend more time in explaining Plan International’s work to citizens who tend to be more subjective. Yet, I am thrilled whenever I see them change their mindset, showing sympathy to the children in need and giving actual support to them – joining the Child Sponsorship Programme. It is heartwarming as well when I receive support and compliment from the public. Some of them even send us food as encouragement. Besides, with my knowledge in different languages, I am glad to be able to exchange ideas with people from different cultures while helping more children in need.

I feel blessed to be a fundraiser of Plan International as I have gained valuable experience from this job. I understand no matter how hard my job is, it can never be compared to what the children in the low-income countries are suffering. 

Being a fundraiser is not only a job to me, but a mission as well. I remember once a donor thanked me for offering him a chance to do good after joining the Child Sponsorship Programme. I was really happy to hear that. Sometimes, citizens donate to Plan International not only because they endorse the organization’s work, but also because they are moved by the passion of fundraisers. Some citizens see me as a friend. I listen to their grumbles in life with patience and offer them my comfort. I really love being a fundraiser. I will work even harder to help more people in need.
