where small gifts make a big impact

Join Us In The Joy Of Gift Giving

41,232 gift boxes in 2023

Thank you everyone for helping us to share festive gifts with 41,033 children in 2023!!!  Our smile is huge!!

Huge gratitude to our community – HK schools, corporates, volunteers and our sponsors – for donating gifts, resources and time, helping us to support those in need.

Our hearts are full.  We couldn’t do what we do without our supporters, and for that, we couldn’t be more thankful! 

Here’s to doing it all again in 2024!

The Box of Hope Team

Support our Cause

Our concept is simple: to bring a little joy to underprivileged children, while at the same time teaching HK school children about poverty and the benefits of gift giving.

We believe that every child should experience the excitement of receiving a gift, no matter their background or life circumstances.

Each year school children, businesses and the local community come together to donate boxes filled with essential, fun, and active items, to give to a child that would not normally receive a gift over the festive period.

We work in collaboration with local, and some overseas charities to support the children and families who receive the boxes.

We are are grateful for the support of  a local network of distribution and logistics companies who enable the boxes to reach their recipients.

None of what we do would be possible without the support of our volunteers, schools and sponsors who support us both financially and in kind.

How your Box Makes an Impact

We know from our partnerships with the charities that the work we do makes a difference.  The children feel respected, included, grateful, for being thought of by their local community.  Receiving the boxes and sharing the contents with their friends and siblings, brings them a little joy.

Lisa Beattie, CEO

It is so rewarding to lead an NGO that brings happiness to so many people – from those that generously donate boxes of gifts, to the children that receive them.  We believe that we are a valued, kindness-based organisation and owe our success to the passion and commitment of our team, and support of the Hong Kong community at large.  Our aim for the future is to continue to bring moments of joy to those who deserve it the most.  We know that small acts of kindness can make a big impact.

Financial Reports and Impact Statement

We strive to be as financially transparent as possible.  As an NGO, our survival exists upon the generosity of our sponsors, donations in kind and financial donations from the public. 

Words Of Support From Those That Get Involved

Volunteering with Box of Hope in checking the box content was a great experience.  It was wonderful to see the array of box content and the efforts that some children had gone to with decorating their boxes for the children who will receive them.  I’m definitely signing up again in 2022.” 

Meredith, Box Packing Volunteer
“Box of Hope is super important because a lot of kids around the world don’t get presents for Christmas and their birthdays. So spending a tiny part of your weekend shopping for kids and putting a smile on their faces is really fun.”

Jonah Shepherd, age 11
Hong Kong school student
