Every year since 2003, SOCO has been raising money to provide a Christmas gift for children that may not otherwise get them. 31% of the children selected a new pair of shoes for school, the next most popular were a pair of white trainers or book vouchers.


We were able to make a difference to over 3,000 children last year, but the impact of the pandemic means we expect to have record demand this year. Every HKD2500 we raise will mean another 10 children will have an extra reason to smile this Christmas.


This year Santa project will help 4,000 children in need. Any excess funds we are able to raise go into our emergency fund. This is an ongoing resource that we offer 365 days a year for unexpected costs for the children that they are unable to cover themselves.


(Accumulated donations of HK$100 or above annually are tax deductible with a receipt in Hong Kong.)
