The AIA Carnival is starting 2020 by spreading love and doing good for the less fortunate in the city. Collaborating for the first time with Crossroads Foundation, the Hong Kong-based non-profit organization, AIA Carnival encourages visitors to donate any toys they win at the Carnival to the more needy in the community.

Since the beginning, the Carnival team has engaged local charity and community groups and outreach programmes to ensure the less fortunate in Hong Kong also benefit from the annual event. The toy donation initiative was originated from a simple idea of spreading the eco-friendly message of “sharing is caring”.

Toy winners who would like to share their “triumph” with those who may not have the chance to cuddle a cute toy can place any clean toys in the donation box at the Carnival’s exit. Crossroads Foundation will collect the toys when the Carnival wraps up February 16 and hand them out to deserving locals, so everyone walks away a winner.
