A successful non-government charitable organisation does not only rely on the enthusiasm and benevolence of prominent members of society; support from the general public is also crucial. As the saying goes: “Money or effort, give what you can.” This idea has always been important in Hong Kong’s charity industry. Throughout the years, Hong Kong people have contributed to charity in ways that they could: some donated money, other helped raise funds. Apart from concern for the needy, the contribution also shows a sense of belonging to society. This talk examines Hong Kong people’s participation in charity, with a focus on how the grassroots have taken up a more active role since the 1970s. Meanwhile, the mass media and popular culture were important carriers responsible for disseminating information about charity.
