We’re involved with a number of events being staged by charitable organisations over the coming weeks, and your discount will contribute to the donations we’ll be making to these charities.

Read on to find out where and when you can buy or order prints, and give to these worthy causes while saving on your Christmas gifts!

The prints really have to be seen at full size to be fully appreciated. Please come and visit us at the events listed below, where you can buy or order prints – and give to a worthy cause at the same time.

SPECIAL OFFER for HKS Newsletter readers: if you can’t make it to one of the events, you can still SAVE 10% by ordering prints online – and for every print ordered, we’ll make a donation to Operation Santa Claus. Just quote the special promotion code hksnl1109 when you order prints online before December 1.

American Women’s Association Charity Fund

American WomenThe American Women’s Association of Hong Kong (AWA) is an organization of international English-speaking women from over 35 countries. A non-profit organization, the 2009-2010 goal of the AWA is to donate $800,000 to local charities and educational institutions – often not well known, without the benefit of media coverage, and who depend solely on the generosity of others to help in the pursuit of their mission. The AWA proudly and compassionately gives all the proceeds from their fundraising efforts to others, and asks your support only for the wellbeing of our needy and less-fortunate neighbors.

AWA Charity BazaarThe annual AWA Charity Bazaar will be held at the Excelsior Hotel in Causeway Bay on 4 November, 2009, from 10am until 6pm. Come and stroll through dozens of stalls displaying products ranging from the most popular to the unusual and unique. Get your Christmas shopping off to a great start – and give to the AWA Charity Fund at the same time.

The AWA Education and Scholarship Fund Drive kicks off on 1 November and, as well as accepting monetary donations, we are offering Cantonese classes, fortune telling and palm reading by a renowned celebrity, and cosmetic make-up makeovers by a technician to the rich and famous. Registrations for any of these events can be made by emailing info@awa.org.hk or via the AWA website.

LOOK FOR the Hong Kong Panorama flyer in your AWA Bazaar shopping bag. It contains the special promotion code you'll need to qualify for 10% discount when ordering prints online – and for every print ordered, we’ll make a donation to the AWA Charity Fund. Numbers are limited, so be early!

The main stage and pitch will be bustling with entertainment from well loved DB groups and companies throughout the day, with up to 20 International Food Stalls close by to keep you happily munching your way around the world.

The Children’s Institute and The Harbour School invite you to their 6th annual

The ChildrenCharity Wine Tasting

At 6.30pm on Friday, 20 November, at The Helena May Wine Garden, 35 Garden Road, Central. Tickets are HK$500, with all proceeds going to TCI and THS programs.

The Children’s Institute, a non-profit school established in 2003, was the first in Hong Kong set up solely to educate children who fall within the Autism spectrum. A large percentage of these children can be completely mainstreamed into a typical education setting and become indistinguishable from their typically developing peers through early learning intervention and therapies.

The Harbour SchoolThe Harbour School is a non-profit international school with a mainstream curriculum offering individualized learning programs to focus on the strengths of each child while also identifying and supporting any Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLd’s).

The continued ability to provide the small classes in which these children thrive is dependent upon the continued support of donors and benefactors. Your gift will help to change the life of one child, and the futures of many.

For more information, please visit The Children’s Institute and Harbour School websites.

We’re donating a 40” print of Hong Kong City Lights, to be auctioned or raffled on the night. We’re also offering a 10% discount on prints ordered by attendees of the event – see our flyer in the gift bag for details.
