Tomorrow’s 100 km Oxfam Trailwalker is not only a physical challenge, it is also an event to help people get out of poverty. All proceeds from the Trailwalker will go to Oxfam, that since its start in 1976 has assisted millions of poor people with among others schooling, health care and water. Our team will raise at least HKD 27,000 this year for Oxfam and I hope you or your company is willing to sponsor me for the event as well. There is now also a special page on the Hong Kong Trailwalker site for this at http://admin.oxfamtrailwalker.org.hk/en/donation.html?walkerNo=0140B where you can donate using a credit card – Note: the site only works with Internet Explorer, so if you have an Apple like me you’ll have trouble donating any money there.
You can also get in touch with me directly at marcvanderchijs (at) gmail (dot) com for sponsorships (I can take cash and deposit that into Oxfam’s account). Oxfam also takes cheques, they should be made payable to “Oxfam Hong Kong”. On the back of the cheque please write down “Oxfam Trailwalker 2008”, the Oxfam account number (Bank of China account: 012-874-0-013039-1) and our team number (number 140).
If you want to transfer money directly into the Oxfam bank account, that’s possible as well:
HSBC Hong Kong (direct transfer) A/C number 001-537000-005 or Bank of China Hong Kong A/C number 012-874-0-013039-1.
For start-ups or any other company donating HKD 1500 or more I will write a blog post on this blog about your company, of course including a link. For every person donating HKD 500 or more I offer to write a short post with a link to your blog or website. Please get in touch with me if you are interested in this. If you have any other ideas related to publicity through this blog, that you would be willing to donate money for, let me know as well.
Thanks in advance to everybody for donating money for this year’s Oxfam Trailwalker!
