OSC Fun4Funds Challenge 2017

JOIN THE OPERATION SANTA CLAUS FUN4FUNDS CHALLENGE 2017.
What is it?
Organised by OSC and supported by Support! International Foundation, OSC Fun4Funds Challenge engages secondary students in charitable causes and raises their awareness in responsible fundraising. As a student-led initiative, the Challenge invites secondary students to plan their own fundraisers to raise funds and awareness for OSC in four weeks’ time prior to Christmas.

The participating students will have a chance to interact and learn from corporates, NGOs and student leaders. They will develop and utilise problem-solving skills, community skills and business acumen. More importantly, while doing good in the festive season, they will ENJOY and HAVE GREAT FUN!
The Challenge
Each team will plan and execute their fundraising activity(ies) at school, and compete to raise as much funds as possible for OSC in 4 weeks.
Period
November 24 to December 22, 2017
Eligibility
All Hong Kong secondary school students are welcome

Each school can send a maximum of two teams.
Team Formation
Each team should comprise of six to eight students, with one team leader and one associate team leader.

The leaders will serve as the major contact points between the team and OSC.

Each team will need to invite a teacher-in-charge to endorse and support the team’s participation.
Youth Mentors
  • Each team will be assigned one Youth Mentor from Support! International Foundation.
  • The Youth Mentors for the participating teams will provide support and guidance in organising the fundraising activities.

  • The Youth Mentor and the team will liaise and come up with the suitable time for meetings.
  • The Youth Mentors will comment on their teams’ ideas, effort and results, and the comments will count towards the final judging.
Introductory Workshop and RTHK Tour
  • All participating teams will be invited to tour around the RTHK Broadcasting House on 24 November, 2017 (Friday) to get a taste of the fun and vibes there!
  • After the tour, the teams will join an introductory workshop. The workshop will equip the teams with the necessary skills and knowledge to plan and execute good fundraising activities. The speakers will include representatives from SCMP, RTHK as well as OSC’s corporate and charity partners.
