Chinachem Group (the Group) announced the first episode of “Light Upcycled Art-for-All” – the Group’s large-scale Christmas public art programme featuring thoughtful initiatives to bring positive change to our communities, thrilling light displays and exciting public art projects encompassing a pop-up Upcycling Art Exhibition and a diverse range of workshops with a focus on educating and engaging the public about upcycling.
The commencement of the three-month citywide light bulb collection campaign – fully supported by the Group’s properties, hotels and shopping malls – aims to collect 50,000 used light bulbs or Mission 50000 pledge with an ultimate goal of benefiting Hong Kong’s elderly. The Group will also donate HK$10 to St. James’ Settlement for every used bulb, used tube or Mission 50000 pledge received for their Home Improvement Project for Deprived Elderly programme, which aims to increase the energy efficiency of household lighting for seniors. Bolstered by the public’s initiatives, the donation amount made by the Group could reach up to HK$500,000 in total.
