Captivating loves DISNEY Hong Kong

(Pictured:  Gina with other VoluntEAR friends from Disney.  Gina is the one standing at the back with her arm around an old friend from the local retirement home they have been helping).

Volunteerism and commitment to community service are an important part of Disney’s culture.  Both through the Disney VoluntEARS program and on their own time, Disney employees selflessly give of their time to make communities healthier and the world a better place. Through the ‘EARS To You’ program, Disney employees are given the opportunity to apply for a grant for their favorite charity.  The amount of the grant is based on the number of volunteer hours served throughout the year, starting from US$100 up to US$1000 every calendar year.

For the past few years, Gina Lee has worked tirelessly to ensure she earns the maximum Disney grant and nominates CAPTIVATING INTERNATIONAL as her charity of choice.  Specifically, she supports our work helping remote villages in rural China break the poverty cycle, and her money has been used to buy plum and walnut saplings for families who need help to get started.  Thanks to people like Gina, children of these families now live with hope for a better tomorrow.  Thanks Gina, and thanks for great program DISNEY.
