ALTHOUGH today is officially the last day of Operation Santa Claus, the campaign needs one last injection of cash - BIG cheques please. So far, a total of $2,650,213 has been banked with money from the month-long appeals trickling in until January 17, the day the cheque will be presented to the beneficiaries. The target set by RTHK Radio 3 and the South China Morning Post this year was $5 million. Only that amount will fund the three projects planned by the Bone Marrow Foundation and the Paediatric Bone Marrow Transplant Unit. Those desperate for a chance at life are depending on all of us. This has been an incredibly prosperous year in the business community. One more donation will not burst the budget. Donations are still to come from Esprit for its special collection of knitwear, Toppy for its leather goods, Hong Kong Tramways for the Operation Santa Claus tram and all the donation boxes that have been in various stores throughout this month. The Conrad raised $9,626 by encouraging guests to drop money into its wishing well. Yesterday's post brought in one cheque for $300 from Matthew Coe which was inspired by Jonathan Leung Chun-man, the child who died on November 12 after a donor could not be found. Four-year-old Jonathan, whose ambition was to have been a fireman, inspired many people to send in donations after he was pictured in the South China Morning Post in Wellington boots. The winners of the Singapore Airlines trip to San Francisco will be drawn on Radio 3 at 9.30 am today. Full details will be published tomorrow.
