Imagine Peace, now in it's 4th year, has grown from a small committed group of friends into large extended family that has doubled in size each generation. The Imagine Peace community is committed to building peace locally while having an impact globally. After raising $24,000 HKD for peace initiatives last year (50% went to Seeds of Peace, www.seedsofpeace.com), Imagine Peace has it's sights set high this year with a goal to raise over $60,000 HKD for peace initiatives. While fundraising stretches our overall impact, we feel that the act of co-creating Imagine Peace as a home-grown local culture focused event is an act of peace in action. Inspired co-creation.



This year the charity focus will go to Nepal Relief efforts. Imagine Peace will be funding educational materials and medical supplies directly to a community in Kathmandu to which 100% of the funds being used for direct funding of supplies.

SCI Hong Kong (Service Civil International) Will also be partnering with Imagine Peace to focus on peace education events in Hong Kong.
