我，曾鳳Clara Tsang，與大提琴走上音樂之路廿餘載。一路走來經歷數之不盡的起伏，走過一段黑暗的歲月，放下提琴過著重覆日程的生活；從裂骨之痛甦醒，重拾指落琴弦的自由；那一刻起，我找到音樂的方向。決定走上舞台，向你們用音樂說故事，有邂逅、有奇蹟、有一念，也有摯愛。我相信音樂的感染力，它喚醒了我，也同樣與你們共鳴，從此我以生命做演奏。 我想做的事... 2018年底發行我的首張大提琴專輯《剛巧遇見你》，記載每個相遇的故事，祈望有緣把音樂傳到你的心裡。 我的演出 2019年1月4日將舉行同名《剛巧遇見你》演奏會，於香港大會堂劇堂上演一場。
To celebrate Baxter’s 35th anniversary, we are launching a #TakeYourToxins campaign - which will start on April 11th! Healthy kidneys filter and remove excess fluid and toxins from blood and turn it into urine. Kidney failure, also called end-stage renal disease (ESRD), is the last stage of chronic kidney disease and happens when kidneys operates at less than 5-10% of normal function and dangerous toxins build up in the bloodstream. At this stage, the patient can only survive with dialysis or a kidney transplant. Yet every day, we take for granted that our kidneys are silently working to rid our body of toxins while patients with kidney failure do not enjoy the same freedom. This campaign aims to highlight the issue of kidney failure by comparing our daily trash disposal with the toxins that patients carry in their bodies until they undergo daily treatment at night. Before Automated Peritoneal Dialysis (APD) treatments, many patients had to carry a solution bag and needed four or more dialysis exchanges a day. A group of Baxter employees will initiate the campaign and carry a small plastic bag to fill it with ALL the accumulated trash. Then they will upload to social media pages with #TakeYourToxins – to mark the start/end of the challenge. We’re making it fun and impactful by taking the waterproof plastic bag everywhere we go, including places where we wouldn’t normally bring a bag! The donation will end by June 14th. We aim to link this movement back to education and awareness around kidney illness and treatments – and of course, mobilizing our connections to raise money for a worthy cause. Be sure to share this with your friends and family and help donate to this page! Automated Peritoneal Dialysis (APD) offers the patient the option of an effective home modality of renal replacement therapy, encourages self-autonomy, and supports optimal quality of life - designed for patients that refuse to let kidney diseases compromise their lives, careers, social life, travels, relationships, or most importantly stand in the way of achieving their dreams.
Hi I’m Michaela Mok, a fresh graduate from Good Hope School. I was first associated with SKSFF two years ago when I had to propose and carry out an internal activity at school to prove my worth in order to join my school’s student council. I ended up calling it “Pause for Paws” (great title I know), an awareness campaign for local stray dogs. Narelle was nice enough to arrange to bring pups and a few dogs to school and this made the event interactive and really got the message across students. After successfully earning my spot on the student council, I went back a couple times to see my furry friends. My mom, Linda Jackson, now an active volunteer at SKSFF got me involved in a few of their activities, including face-painting, fundraising, shaking buckets etc. Last year, the school suggested I enter a local competition called “Community Leaders of Tomorrow” where funds were given to me and my partner to carry out an activity for a charity of our choice. Without hestitation, we went straight back to Narelle and SKSFF to organise Pause for Paws version 2.0, where we went to shake buckets and raise awareness outside the Rugby Sevens. This event brought both students and teachers together as well as the community and even got the attention of the Education Bureau who later invited us to give a lecture about our experience to professors and students alike at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Though we did not win CLT, we were rewarded with the Most Popular Project Award. Upon finishing my public exams and graduating, I received a call about Pause for Paws creating buzz within the Education Bureau and that they would like my partner and I to appear on a television programme about student-led projects in collaboration with RTHK. Needless to say, SKSFF has opened a series of doors in my life, leading me to different opportunities and for that I am forever grateful. Among all the events, it puts a smile on my face to see our community willingly come together to pitch in to help our furry friends. Each dollar spent on the dogs is put to good use with medical care, food and maintenance, all ensuring a better life for the dogs, as said in SKSFF’s motto. During my few visits to the kennel, I have grown to love each of the 106 dogs there, understanding their back stories and personalities. I hope tonight’s event with help of the fringebacker can provide enough assistance to the shelter to keep making a difference, one canine at a time.
