On Sunday 17 November 2019, over 900 students aged from 8 to 18 will bike, coasteer, abseil, swim, canoe, rock-scramble on the hills and beaches of Discovery Bay in the annual Team FEAR Challenge. An important element of participating in Team FEAR is raising money for Youth Outreach, a local charity dedicated to supporting disadvantaged youth in Hong Kong. In the past few years Team FEAR has been able to hand over a cheque of over $100,000 annually to the charity due to the generous fundraising of the participants and the race's sponsors. Fringebacker enables our participants to raise money from family and friends from all over the world and the teams that raise the highest amount of money or have the largest number of sponsors are given the opportunity to abseil down Youth Outreach's 60m wall. Please give generously!

The Extraordinary Fairies is a children book that offers a holistic and beautiful interpretation of pregnancy losses mums and children. The author Orchid Bloom and the support group Hope Hong Kong would like to raise HKD100,000 through the sale of the book to bring in professional counselling training from the U.K. to HK, to provide emotional support to women and couples who struggle with infertility and repeated miscarriages. As someone who’s been through the dark journey, Bloom understands the toll of the challenges would take on one’s life and those closest to her. Sadly, it’s a taboo in the society even to raise such topics. The project also includes building a website to provide practical information on such topics as well as promote understanding and compassion among the general public.
I (MAK Chun Kong) have a dream which belongs to Hongkongers - be the first made-in-Hong-Kong swimmer in the history to swim across English Channel, as a pioneer in Hong Kong extreme swimming. To make this dream come true, I have been receiving three years of ice and ultramarathon swimming training with international standard. My physical condition is ready to swim across English Channel solo. In this challenge, the actual swimming distance will be over 40km. Water temperature is estimated to be 15-18°C. Through this challenge, I want to let the world know the "never give up" spirit from Hong Kong.
Conflict is escalating in northern Syria. Turkish troops are attacking Kurdish-led forces and some 40,000 to 50,000 Christians are caught up in the crisis. Your Christian family needs your support and prayers right now. Open Doors' local church partners are already on the ground, distributing food, medical help and winter fuel to desperately vulnerable Christians. They’ve been present, bringing hope, throughout the war. Right now, they're responding to immediate needs and they urgently need your support. Every HK$350 could provide a vital emergency relief pack for a family in Syria that will enable them to survive for a month.
Pakistan ranks 148 out of 149 in the latest Global Gender Gap Index, which means it is the second worst country on gender equality. Even basic needs such as those around menstrual hygiene are not met. There is stigma around menstruation, while 44% women are using rags, newspaper, or even leaves because they cannot afford sanitary pads. Girls are also forced to drop out from school during periods. At fair trade, we promote gender equality, therefore we have the fund raising campaign to support the basic needs of Pakistani women.
