Since 2004, Watsons has partnered with different charity organisations to run the Watsons Loving Charity Programme. We’re committed to bringing lots of love and lots of laughs to the community. Our three focus areas are:
• In-store donation in all stores in Hong Kong
• Fundraising Campaigns
Watsons Loving Charity
InspiringHK Sports Foundation (IHKSports) is now the beneficiary of Watsons Loving Charity Programme. IHKSports promotes youth social mobility, gender equality, social inclusion and healthy lifestyle. To encourage public support to IHKSports in developing better youths through sports, Watsons places donation boxes in all stores in Hong Kong. Customers can also donate MoneyBack points via mobile app to the charity organisation.
Over past 15 years, Watsons has raised fund through activities like donation box placement, charity sales of bears, calendar and selected products, for different local charities including Sheen Hok Charitable Foundation, UNICEF, Hong Kong Breast Cancer Foundation, Orbis, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and Hong Kong Single Parents Association.
Watsons Volunteer Team
Watsons Volunteer Team held the #GetActive Sports Fun Day for InspiringHK Sports Foundation today, playing dodgebee and #GetActive Relay Game with the students. To echo with Watsons Plastic Container Recycling Programme, environmental elements were incorporated in the #GetActive Relay Game. Plastic containers and other materials were reused as game props to raise the awareness of students on environmental protection.
A.S. Watson Project LOL
Established in 1841 when Hong Kong was just a small port, A.S. Watson Group's desire to give dated back to our history when it was a small dispensary, providing free medicine to the needy. Since then, the company has grown substantially as it continues to build on its rich history of supporting wide array of community initiatives. On the occasion of its 175th Anniversary in 2016, A.S. Watson Group has launched the "Project LOL" philanthropy programme to bring “Lots of Laugh, Lots of Love” to further extend its love and care to the society, with its social responsibility projects grouped under three main areas- Health, Education and Caring Community.
