Caring Calls (Community Outreach) at Green Hour 綠色時刻

How Time Auction works

1. Earn Karma

Donating and logging past volunteer hours earns you Karma Points, which you can then use to bid on auctions. $1 donated earns 1 Karma Point and 1 hour volunteered earns 10 Karma Points.

2. Bid

Bid your Karma Points to meet inspiring people, such as humanitarians, entrepreneurs, athletes, or artists. Most auctions allow every bidder to win if the goal is reached.

3. Meet

Time Auction is all about priceless experiences and rewards for the priceless philanthropy you do. Depending on the auction, meetings are done virtually or in person... or both!

Caring Calls (Community Outreach)

Help us reach out to more individuals in need in society

Project Details

What we need

  • Join a short briefing session to go through terms of activity
  • Make 'Caring calls' to the elderly in specific communities
  • Liaise with our staff to ensure that service users are receiving the right donated items

Background

We are launching our Caring Call programme and need compassionate and skilled speakers to help us reach out to the community.

What we have

We are working in partnership with local district councillors who are providing us with contact information for at risk individuals. This information will be provided on the night.We will provide a short script with a series of important questions we need to ask. It is important, however, that individuals are aware coming into this volunteer position that being confident in engaging with the elderly is an essential skill.

Why this is important

In reaching out to more people Green Hour is able to create a stronger relationship with the community, allowing us to support more service users.

What we do

Established in 2018, Green Hour aims to promote a sustainable lifestyle through education, events and campaigning. Having already organised multiple beach cleanups, 'plogs' as well as Hong Kong's first 'Plastic Attack', Green Hour has begun establishing itself in the area. More recently, Green hour has started its Bun Run initiative, rescuing surplus food items from being sent to landfill and distributing them, as well as other essentials, to those in need in the community. To date, Green Hour supports roughly 100 individuals on a weekly basis, with plans to expand over the coming months.
