Tiger fuels artists' fund-raising effort
Hundreds of children attempted to capture a tiger the other day - on paper.
The tiger was the large, cuddly mascot found at Hong Kong's newest and biggest Esso service station, in Shek Mun. The students were taking part in a drawing competition for charity.
The 'Kids Let's Draw Together' competition to mark the grand opening of the 1,530-square metre station was a fund-raiser for the Hong Kong Children's Thalassaemia Foundation.
Thalassaemia is a congenital disease where the patient's body fails to produce regular red blood cells. Many Thalassaemia children have to spend one to two days each month in hospitals to receive a new transfusion of red blood cells.
For every completed picture, Esso will donate $100 to the Hong Kong Children's Thalassaemia Foundation.
The children with the best drawings will received book coupons and fuel coupons for their parents.
