Empowering children through art.

Hi, thank you for stopping by!

We’ve received a few emails and messages suggesting that making purchases or a donation on our new Hands of Action website for the children’s art project is a little too complicated or confusing. We’re working on simplifying it, but in the meantime:

Step 1. Go to homepage.

Step 2. Click on the icon “Drawings" in the black bar at the top of the page - there you will find a drop down menu - “Prices and Info” and “Drawings”.

Step 3. Click on “Prices and Info” for a brief background.

Step 4. Click on “Drawings” and a mosiac of drawings will appear. As you “mouse over” each one they will change colour and a yellow spot will appear in the middle. Double click and a full page version of the image will appear.

Step 5. Above and underneath each image you will see a “Buy Now” button, which allows you to pay by PayPal or credit card.

Step 6. If you are purchasing just one image, enter the print number in the description box, and then put the figure “8” (representing 8 HK Dollars) in the item box. If you are buying multiples, you can do this individually for each print, or just once by entering all the reference numbers and a multiple of 8. (8 Hong Kong dollars is a little over US$1 or about 60 euro cents).

Step 7. If you would also like to make a contribution to the programs of Hands of Action, obviously we welcome your generosity. Just add that to the figure for the print(s) you wish to purchase.

This is a great initiative for the children, getting them engaged and giving them a sense of “empowerment” that they too have a role to play in improving their own future, and that of their community.

Once again we’d like to take this opportunity to remind you that this project is entirely run by volunteers, there are no overheads, so everything you donate goes to the children.

In addition, for every print purchased or donation made before December 31st, Shirley and I will also donate HK$1.

These children have opened their hearts to us through their art, let’s open ours.

Thank you!
