ImpactHK never started out with the intention of creating a charity. Three years ago, our founder – Jeff Rotmeyer – had the idea of doing one kind act per month for the homeless. This would mean a walk through the more impoverished areas of Hong Kong and handing out supplies to those in need. This initiative really touched the hearts of volunteers throughout Hong Kong, becoming quite popular and giving ImpactHK the opportunity to make greater impact. We progressed to doing two walks a month, then four, and so on. We now do up to 50 walks per month in six locations across Hong Kong, and ImpactHK became a registered charity in March 2017.
We are a charity built upon the kindness of hundreds of passionate volunteers. Our numbers bring power and opportunity to create massive change – not only by positively helping homeless individuals in Hong Kong, but also by changing the face of philanthropy in the territory.
