HONG KONG ASSOCIATION OF WASHINGTON FOUNDATION (HKAWF) SPECIAL URGENT COVID 19 DONATION CAMPAIGN TO HELP FRONT LINE COVID 19 MEDICAL PROVIDERS AND RESEARCHERS
In response to an urgent message from Jody Y. Li, Director of International Initiative at UW Medicine, Benjamin Lee and the Hong Kong Association of Washington Foundation (HKAWF) have established a special COVID-19 donation campaign to help front line COVID-19 medical providers and researchers. Leading researchers have been working non-stop for the past two months on potential new cures, therapies, and COVID-19 medicines. UW Medicine researchers are leading the way in the detection and prevention of COVID-19 and other coronaviruses, however we have been made aware that they are reaching a level of exhaustion that is taking its toll. In recognition of this current emergency situation, the Hong Kong Association of Washington Foundation has targeted an active “Donate a Dinner” campaign for those UW researchers who are sequester during this research drive to find new medicines. These front line COVID-19 researchers, are working around the clock, some are staying in hotels close to the research center. The HKAWF donation effort is dedicated to providing warm dinners for these brave researchers so they can continue working to protect all of the public. At this time, we are targeting 1,000 meals and Benjamin Lee is working with local restaurant owners to develop low cost tasty dinners to help our local businesses and maximize the funds gathered by HKBAW for this heroic donation effort. We are asking you consider helping with the donation effort and give money to this campaign. Every dollar will help provide a warm dinner to these heroes and keep them motivated in their life saving efforts. Your generous support now can ensure a rapid and effective response to this quickly evolving crisis and to the health of our community. In this moment of tremendous community need, we could not be more grateful for your caring consideration and partnership.
Donation is tax-deductible and 100% of fund raised will go towards purchasing dinners.
