Over 60 corporate and school donors and thousands more showed their generous support
raises over HK$16.7 million to support 19 charity projects

While 2020 was a challenging year for many, Operation Santa Claus (OSC) continued to promote the spirit of giving to benefit those in need with its campaign ‘Caring Community, Caring Christmas’, raising more than HK$16.7 million in donations.

Jointly organised by Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) Radio 3 and the South China Morning Post (SCMP), OSC 2020 successfully raised funds for 19 selected beneficiaries to run charitable projects helping those in need from Hong Kong’s community. Although two-thirds of fundraising events were cancelled or postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, over 60 corporate and school donors, and thousands more continued showing their generous support to the campaign.

Said Director of Broadcasting LEUNG Ka-wing: “It has been a very special year for OSC, with many supporters overcoming the challenge of driving a fund-raising campaign while facing the global pandemic. Although we haven't been able to hold community events like we usually do, many people have shown care and generosity in different ways, giving hope to the vulnerable in our city.”

OSC celebrated the conclusion of this year’s campaign by announcing four awards to noteworthy corporations and schools for their fundraising efforts. They are:
● Top Corporate Fundraiser - Morgan Stanley
● Most Creative Corporate Fundraiser - Swire Properties Limited
● Top School Fundraiser - Discovery Mind Educational Organisation
● Most Creative School Fundraiser - Singapore International School (Hong Kong)

“OSC plays an important role in supporting the community, I am glad to see that the three-decade long partnership between the Post and RTHK continues to inspire and motivate corporate donors and members of the public to do their part for our city. This year’s outcome is unexpectedly great and our society has shown the best of humanity by demonstrating the spirit of giving during such difficult times," said SCMP’s Editor-in-Chief Tammy TAM.
