Cost per person is HK$250 to support the running costs of our charity and our mission to make volunteerism mainstream.
WeWork (https://www.wework.com/) is a global network of workspaces where companies and people grow together. We transform buildings into dynamic environments for creativity, focus, and connection. More than just the best place to work, though, this is a movement toward humanizing work. We believe that CEOs can help each other, offices can use the comforts of home, and we can all look forward to Monday if we find real meaning in what we do.
