Li Ka-shing wants to give his millions to you
The world's fourth richest man, Li Ka-shing wants to give away HK$300 million with his philanthropic campaign called "Love HK Your Way." Anyone with an idea for how to improve Hong Kong can submit their project proposals to the organization and try to gain some of Li's dough.
The Li Ka-shing Foundation welcomes all applications to be sent through the website www.loveideas.hk. The ideas will then be voted on by the public and the ones with the highest votes have a chance to win up to HK$25,000 for individuals, and up to HK$300,000 for organizations.
As long as you have a Hong Kong ID card, you can have your voice heard on the campaign website. That means you, me, our adolescent brothers and our grandmas all have an equal chance of winning cash. Ho Hei Wah, director of Society for Community Organizations, said to sina.com that he is interested in submitting a proposal and that he would encourage residents in the Sham Shui Po area to submit their own ideas.
Deadline for submissions is October 17, 2010. Online voting begins November 1. www.loveideas.hk
