Home Kong Kitchen has been creating a difference for Hong Kong’s homeless collecting items you would find in a wash bag for a special Mid-Autumn delivery to ImpactHK! The project was inspired by a chat with Impact founder Jeff Rotmeyer who lamented that although HK provides excellent public showers, they don’t provide basic amenities like soap and shampoo. Thanks to HKK’s incredibly generous community, we collected enough amenities to fill over 100 bags!
The wash bags were designed and sewn using recycled cotton by a team of 7-16 year olds spearheaded by my aspiring costume designer 15yo niece, Mia Shroff! 🙏 Check out some of their incredible designs below! Thanks to fashion designer Evgeniya Menassa for providing guidance and allowing kids who don’t have access to sewing machines at home to create the bags using her facilities. Guess who we’ll be inviting to create this year’s Christmas Gift Socks? (Yes, I am already thinking about Christmas!!!) 😂 🎄 🧦 ✨
This was a stunning team effort by Homekongers aged 7-70! Thanks to all who contributed to our cutest project yet! 💜 💜 💜
