RoadShow, the Hong Kong's biggest one-stop multimedia and advertising platform, joined hands with The Salvation Army to launch "The Circle of Goodness" Campaign today (9 September). The Campaign has two folds of meaning: (1) to encourage the public and business sector to make in-kind donations which become practical assistance to the needy through The Salvation Army; (2) to help raise funds to support the community care services of the Army when the donated items are resold at Salvation Army Family Stores. 
 
Hong Kong is an affluent city. Each year a large number of items are put aside, simply because new models are launched or the trend changes. Many of those unused items are still in good condition. If more people donate such goods to The Salvation Army, they can help the needy and reduce waste. 
 
Today’s kick-off ceremony cum press conference of “The Circle of Goodness” Campaign was held at the headquarters of The Salvation Army Hong Kong and Macau Command. Mr Matthew Cheung Kin-chung, GBS, JP, Secretary for Labour and Welfare, The Government of the HKSAR, graciously joined as the Guest of Honour. Mr Thomas Lo Sui-sing, Chief Operating Officer of RoadShow Holdings Limited; Major Ans Wimmers, General Secretary of The Salvation Army Hong Kong and Macau Command; and Artist Ambassadors, including Mr Bill Chan, Ms Irene Wan and Mr Carlos Chan were Officiating Guests. The Ambassadors took the lead to make donations at the ceremony so as to call on the public and corporations to support this campaign.  
 
In the ceremony, Major Ans Wimmers of The Salvation Army said, “We are glad to join hands with RoadShow to launch this campaign. Through the media platform of RoadShow, more people can learn about the services of The Salvation Army so that we can gain more support for our services.”
 
Mr Thomas Lo Sui-sing, Chief Operating Officer of RoadShow Holdings Limited said, “RoadShow values the partnership with The Salvation Army. We will give full support to promote this campaign in our media channels, so as to draw a wider support for this meaningful campaign.”
 
"The Circle of Goodness" Campaign will be held from September to November 2016. Artists and corporate volunteers will visit the service users of The Salvation Army and deliver gifts which meet the needs of the users, showing care and support to the less fortunate.
