Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. To fulfill this mission, every year Facebook organizes “Global Causes Day” to mobilize its employees around meaningful causes and help non-profit organizations (NPOs) use Facebook and its family of apps to do more good for their communities. In Hong Kong, Facebook hosts “Facebook Good Causes Day” to support local NPOs by educating them on how to use Facebook to advocate social good causes and connect more closely with their communities.
2020 marks the fifth anniversary of Good Causes Day, which is co-organized by The Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS) and themed around mental health. It also marks the successful completion of #HearForYou Campaign which was launched by Facebook six months ago. Our NPO partners include Agent of Change, Caritas - Hong Kong, The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups, St. James' Settlement and The Samaritans Hong Kong. The campaign aims to support local NPOs that are advocating society to address mental health issues. Through a one-stop online resources hub to connect people in need by providing easy access to health and wellness resources, online assessment, and immediate support on messenger bots, the campaign aims at reaching out to those in need and raising public awareness on mental health issues. The program matched our NPO partners with teams of Facebook Buddies, who provided advertising sponsorship and marketing expertise support.
This year, Facebook also collaborates with Preface Coffee to launch the “Facebook Good Causes Day World Size Coffee” Campaign from December 1 to 18. Meaningful data insights about mental health are displayed on coffee cups according to the % of coffee the customer would order at Preface Coffee. With the idea of “Drink Less Donate The Rest”, part of the coffee sales proceeds of the “Facebook Good Causes Day World Size Coffee” will be donated to #HearForYou mental health program NGO partners. For more details, please refer to Preface Coffee Facebook page.
