眼見特區政府扣起CSI口罩作利益輸送，一切政策以取悅中央為施政原則，公共資源不會按需要妥善分配😡! 香港人唯有再次發揮 #自己香港自己救 的精神，由淺藍商界到深黃社運界都目標一致，為香港張羅抗疫物資。
Who do we serve?
We have been procuring surgical masks as they become available. Every time we reach the target of collecting about 500 masks, we will make a shipment to Hong Kong. The masks will be distributed by non-profit organizations and District Councillors to the underprivileged. Your financial support means a lot to us and enables us to provide precautionary protection to the vulnerable demographic in Hong Kong during the coronavirus crisis. All proceeds go towards purchasing surgical masks and shipping costs.
- The elderly: Based on the data collected so far, coronavirus is delivering an unequal demographic blow to the elderly and those with chronic medical conditions.
- Disabled or people with chronic illness: Queuing for hours in the cold weather may take a toll on their health. Some of them also require regular check-up at hospitals, which have stopped providing masks to outpatient visits in order to preserve masks for frontline medical staff.
- The poor: Despite being one of the richest cities in the world, Hong Kong has a profound wealth gap and a limited safety net for society’s most vulnerable. The price of surgical mask has inevitably been raised in the face of a global shortage. Many underprivileged simply cannot afford surgical masks at the current price level.

多謝各位支持，本計劃暫時寄了 6,100 口罩到香港。當中 5,200 個口罩已經透過關注綜援低收入聯盟和區議員派出。目前尚有 1,400 口罩將會於日內寄到香港，我們會繼續發佈本地單位派發口罩的情況。第一階段總數 7,500 個口罩，成本連郵費大約 $2,980美元 (未計眾籌平台手續費)。在下以一日寄 500 個口罩的目標，一路走來，也寄了半個月。當初開始此計劃就是本著「一方有難、八方支援」的香港人精神。眼見香港疫情穩定下來，反觀身在海外疫情失控，在下決定將香港人的公民互助意識，在海外出一分力，展開第二階段部署。
