CPBS 500x500 Campaign

The Hong Kong Centre for Pro Bono Service (CPBS) has relied solely on volunteers and the SoCO staff working unpaid overtime. Having an employed case manager and proper resourcing will enable us to assist more people. So our fundraising target is simple: get 500 people (at least) to donate (at least) $500. This is the minimum estimated amount we require for at least one case manager and related costs for a trial period of 6 to 12 months.

Please join us at the #500Club, so that we can make a lasting positive impact on social justice and the rule of law in Hong Kong. You can make a donation at the Simplygiving website, then share your donation on social media as well to spread the news.
