SMILES ALL ROUND

Hong Kong Tatler - - Inbox -

In May, Malaysia Tatler, in part­ner­ship with The Melium Group, raised HK$7.5 mil­lion for 12 dif­fer­ent causes via a char­ity auc­tion. The mag­a­zine also helped Estée Lauder raise HK$1.36 mil­lion for breast can­cer re­search at the Pink Rib­bon Char­ity Ball. In Au­gust, Edi­presse Me­dia Malaysia helped raise more than HK$870,000 for Big Hearts For Lit­tle Hearts, an or­gan­i­sa­tion that helps chil­dren with con­gen­i­tal heart dis­ease.

Philip­pine­tatler helped raise more than HK$1 mil­lion for the Vir­lanie Foun­da­tion at its Tatler Ball last year. The foun­da­tion pro­vides med­i­cal care, ed­u­ca­tion and hous­ing for street chil­dren. In 2013, Philip­pine­tatler raised more than HK$700,000 for re­cov­ery ef­forts af­ter Ty­phoon Haiyan. Known in the Philip­pines as Ty­phoon Yolanda it was one of the strong­est trop­i­cal cy­clones ever recorded and dev­as­tated parts of the Philip­pines.

Through var­i­ous fundrais­ing events, Thai­land­tatler sup­ported the Queen Sirikit Cen­tre for Breast Can­cer, the Chi­tral­ada Vo­ca­tional School and the Kam­lang­jai Project—an ini­tia­tive that helps women in pri­son. Sin­ga­pore­tatler, too, threw its weight be­hind a range of char­i­ties, in­clud­ing the Red Cross, the Sin­ga­pore Eye Re­search In­sti­tute, the Breast Can­cer Foun­da­tion and the Bone Mar­row Donor Pro­gramme.

“The Edi­presse Me­dia fam­ily firmly be­lieves in giv­ing back and we hope, through ini­tia­tives like th­ese, that we can make a dif­fer­ence in our lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties,” Goodridge said in hand­ing over the cheque at the SPHC head­quar­ters.
