    Leila CHAN has already been a reporter for 25 years. She had never imagined herself to have another identity – founder of a charity, let alone other people.

    After finishing a series of publications about the life and death education in Hong Kong, CHAN realised that while the survival space for reporters in Hong Kong had been shrinking, the challenge of the aging population facing Hong Kong had also been unprecedentedly mounting. She therefore founded the “Big Silver Community”, a social innovation charity. It makes use of the BIG MAG magazine as a medium to help readers “to save people, money and health”. Meanwhile, it enables the readers to know more about topics regarding healthy life as well as life and death education. What is more important is that by selling BIG MAG at community stores and newsstands, and to organise events which are related to the contents discussed in the magazine, a community care network is built. As a result, the masses and the community can be reconnected, letting everybody plan ahead for the second half of life.

    • The Good Food Clan

      The Good Food Clan

      Hong Kong people are never bored about food choices – from TV programmes to mobile apps, we are constantly fed with news on latest food trends, new restaurants and hottest deals, and our shopping carts are always targets of food manufacturers who compete among themselves to please the tastebuds of the ever demanding consumers.

      However, while most people care about taste and costs when it comes to making food choices, few would ever ponder over what their food is really made of, and how they are made - except for the food-conscious ones who gather together not only to share their knowledge on good food but also promote the belief of conscious eating: School of Everyday Life organizes twice a year an Organic food fair and conducts regular workshops on food additives and permaculture; An organic apple snack maker strives to develop local-made natural products with a fair price; A group of parent gardeners and primary school students run a roof-top farm that houses near 400 boxes of certified organic produce... Although their approaches to celebrate good food vary, their smiles and the food they hold on their hand share the same glow.

    • Animal Volunteers

      Animal Volunteers

      In Hong Kong, many people care for animals, and they treat animals as their family members. Yet, according to statistics, 4000 stray and abandoned cats and dogs were euthanized last year. The figure shows that many people still do not respect the meaning of life enough and they do not even understand what life education is.

      As such, a group of animal protectors, namely Maison de Charlotte pour des Chats et des Chiens, HK Saving Cat and Dog Association, and some cat and dog lovers gathered together to provide food, medical care and even sterilisation services for countless stray and abandoned cats and dogs. What is even more gratifying is that this group of animal volunteers find new owners of these unfortunate cats and dogs, in view of changing their destiny and bringing new life to them.
