The Art of Caring (since March 2009) 

We believe that children are our future.  Since early 2009, we have initiated a charity campaign entitled, 'The Art of Caring', through which we work to support and help local children and youth with disabilities in their education and rehabilitation.  Partnering with SAHK (formerly known as The Spastics Association of Hong Kong), a local rehabilitation service organization providing assistance to persons who are physically and mentally challenged due to neurological impairment via a wide range of education and welfare services in a holistic approach for over 45 years, this is our pilot program which we intend to extend to other charitable organizations or NGOs.
 
 
Key objectives
 
• We want to help the underprivileged children who may need financial aid for a better living environment, education and talent development opportunity.
• We aim to provide a channel and platform for these children to express themselves and demonstrate their abilities through art and drawings.
• As a responsible corporate citizen, we want to contribute to our society through forging a positive development of today’s children and youths. 
 
As part of our CSR commitment, The Art of Caring, is poised to engage our future pillars in an activity to demonstrate their ability in drawing art, to express their emotions and feelings about themselves and their environs, to boost their self-confidence, as well as to polish their interpersonal skills, communications abilities and also team cooperation.
We invited SAHK child/youth members to submit over 280 of their drawings and paintings with various themes whereby we fully funded the program and a donation exceeding HK$130,000 has been provided to SAHK direct.  
 
Using the combined resources and shared responsibilities, the Empire Hotels and SAHK have brought valuable benefits to a select group of Hong Kong’s children and youths and create opportunities to others through the creation of this one-of-a-kind charity initiative.
 
280 drawings have been nicely mounted and hung on the walls in all of our guest rooms at our newly open Empire Hotel Hong Kong • Causeway Bay. Room guests are welcome to make a donation towards a purchase of the drawing in their rooms. You, too can express the art of caring by making a  donation for the purchase of any drawings in the collection at HKD500* a piece (frame included). *Shipping and/or freight charges will apply for overseas donors.

The Birth of 'The Art of Caring' 
On 1 June 2009 (International Children's Day), the Empire Hotels  in conjunction with SAHK officially unveiled this meanfingful charity program. An Exhibition and Launch Ceremony was held in the all-new Empire Hotel Hong Kong Causeway Bay. The exhibition featured 28 paintings which were created by 3-17 years old children who are physically and/or mentally challenged allowing visitors glimpses of their potential, artistic talents yet to be fully explored.
