CarePack Drive for ImpactHK: Make a Change!

By | Social Justice, Student Initiatives | No Comments

The CarePack drive held by two G11 students, Oceanna and Ricca last May of the 2020-2021 school term, has ended successfully. CarePack is a student-started drive, aiming to alleviate the burden on the homeless especially during the rise of Covid 19 within HK through collaborating with ImpactHK, a NGO focused on this issue. They would like to thank everyone who donated masks and hand sanitizers, and CISPA as well as the GGC for their amazing support for the drive!

They had initially set a goal of 50 care packages to be sent to ImpactHK with 5 masks and one hand sanitizer per pack. Each care package was packed in paper bags to be environmentally friendly. By the end of the drive, they had packed more than 200 care packages and donated 1200+ masks to ImpactHK. This drive was supported and promoted through our grade-wide advocacy campaign. They donated the care packages to ImpactHK during the summer, who distributed them to the homeless around Hong Kong. Additional masks were sent to ImpactHK as well to support the volunteers there who greatly inspire us for their service. 

Note from the Students:

We are also currently the executives for SAGE for the 2021~2022 school year, please also support SAGE and our activities there. If you would like to have a drive with SAGE or would like to work with us on this campaign, please reach out to us at and

Glohelp non-profit initiative to support hospitals in Brooklyn and Brookdale

By | Student Initiatives | No Comments
Glohelp is a non-profit initiative founded by 4 students across Hong Kong (Joanne T from CDNIS and Bernice W from VSA) and the USA (Katie H and Liz B from Peddie School) that aims to help medical workers during this time of crisis. Inspired by the many heartbreaking stories found online as well as the continued effort of these workers, they decided to work together to try and help out. The team helps to collect donations from the public to help fund medical supplies such as masks, sanitisers among others that are to be donated to hospitals in the USA, specifically the New York Area near where the US students attend school. 
America, the country with the highest amount of confirmed Coronavirus cases worldwide (as of May 25 2020), has been under much pressure. Healthcare systems and hospitals across the country have been put under enormous strain, and workers only have a quickly dwindling supply of equipment to protect themselves. Thus, while working alongside suppliers and various hospitals, the Glohelp team has decided to work together to help alleviate the burden on medical workers and slow the spread of disease.
Since their launch, they have already sent out two shipments of masks to Brooklyn Hospital Center and Brookdale Hospital Centre but are looking forward to launching more shipments with the help of donors and donations from the public!
