Through the sale of donating preloved luxury items, we raise funds which go towards grants focusing on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals of Responsible Consumption and Production (#12), Health and Well being (#3) and Education (#4).
THIS YEAR’s GRANT PRIZE
This year, funds raised from the sale of luxury items will go towards The R.A.W. Prize, which stands for Responsibility, Awareness and Wonder.
The HK$500,000 grant will be awarded to a for-profit or non-profit project created by a Gen.T List honoree who is working towards United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals #12 - Responsible Consumption and Production in Hong Kong and Greater China.
The winner of The R.A.W. Prize 2019 will be announced on Sept 25, 2019.
