A Christian group is launching a $10 million campaign designed to raise the spirits of Hong Kong residents downcast by the economic slump and turn them into good neighbours and caring individuals. The Hong Kong Campus Crusade for Christ yesterday announced it would organise a series of action projects under its Good Neighbour Movement over the next two months, with the aim of mobilising 18,000 volunteers and reaching out to 4.5 million people. The movement also said about 2.35 million blessing kits would be distributed throughout the campaign. Each kit will contain 100 action tips that people can use to practise being a good neighbour. The movement expects the campaign will cost $10 million, which will be provided by sponsorship and donations. The group's national director, Christopher Lui Sze-ho, said: 'Hong Kong is currently enveloped by the negative attitudes and melancholic moods that are widespread among its residents. 'Through concerted efforts, we hope to transform negative, gloomy outlooks and instil positive caring attitudes into Hong Kong.' Mr Lui said people in Hong Kong were now more prepared to embrace the concept of voluntary work than they had been in the past, although many were still reluctant to turn such acceptance into action. Veteran radio broadcaster Candy Chea Suk-mui, the movement's co-ambassador, said: 'Hong Kong is in need of good neighbours. I encourage Hong Kong people to extend their helping hands to those who face despair, fear or guilt.' The campaign will include an 18-district community service day next month, on which an exchange of professional and caring services will be conducted to meet the various needs of the community. A fair will also be held in December at the old Kai Tak airport site to give participants a 'good neighbour' experience. The movement said the action tips were based on characteristics of a good neighbour, namely forgiveness, integrity, respect, trustworthiness, initiative, co-operation and perseverance. The movement also plans to raise $2.5 million to buy 300 New Zealand dairy goats for North Korea as a blessing for Asian neighbours suffering food shortages.
