A home for HK heartbeat

Update posted by Kinzie x On Jun 19, 2019

Rent paid to 31 July 2019

This is a huge relief, as we enter the quiet months and Hong Kong slows down for summer. I will take a breath and then build on this momentum moving forward.

The online campaign has been updated to reflect the offline bank deposit/transfer payments.

We raised HK$66,257.00 in 8 days!

The cash is essential -- your vote for natural Hong Kong is everything.

Thank you to everyone for your kind words of encouragement -- they have provided even more relief from my stress than the actual payments to the landlord on Saturday and that relief is beyond huge.

On the advice of friends, I have adjusted the target and deadline to more realistically reflect my immediate requirements.

The expiry date extended to 30 June 2019 (from 14 June) in order to stabilize the business moving forward.

I was in a bit of a spin last week when I set up this campaign using the figure on my eviction notice. When I made that payment on Saturday 15 June, the landlord apologized and said June rent was due as well or she would need the key by the end of the day.

In that moment, I realized I had repeated my mistake of not asking for enough in a moment of panic.

Lesson learned, thank you.

We then managed to raise enough on June 15 to settle the lease until June 30.

Full statements of expenses, payments and revenue will be provided upon request.

Rental arrears of HK$31,500 have now been paid and June rent is due today so I have adjusted the goal amount upwards to HK$42,000, reflecting the total amount required to stay put. I was in a bit of a spin when I set up the campaign on Tuesday and I set the original goal based on the figure written on the eviction notice posted on my front door.

I'm not sure I ever really appreciated the true value of HK$50 (USD6.38) until the amount showed up with a thanks and warm words of encouragement for HK heartbeat written in eloquent Chinglish. I am moved beyond words (into tears, actually) and more determined than ever to see this happen.

Thank you to everyone who jumped in early and started this momentum.

Love, Kinzie
