We are Colour Away Covid - a student-led initiative that aims to donate 100,000 quality, custom masks (each costs HK$ 2) to those in need. We’re envisioning a world where all youth have access to quality masks, empower each other and use creativity to help their community during difficult times. In June, we launched our CAC art competition and invited students all around the world to design a mask pattern along the theme 'There to Care'. By the end of July, we'll have the winning design - which will be printed on all the masks that we donate!

Your donations will be going to providing student-designed masks to charities including HandsOn Hong Kong, SoCo, Dignity for Children and Children’s Kidney Fund. All of our beneficiaries serve children in severe need of protective equipment: some of them are refugees, others are from low-income families, or are at high risk of falling ill due to their chronic illnesses. As children return to school in September, we want to make sure that they feel safe and confident to learn and live a normal life.

Our initiative was inspired after a friend contracted COVID-19 as a young adult and had a difficult recovery despite being young and healthy. This is why we strongly believe in the importance of protecting our youth, as well as the idea of youth empowering youth.

We truly hope you will join us in making a difference today by donating now!

* Please note that even though our goal is 100,000 masks, the actual amount depends on how much we raise. Some charities may prefer re-usable masks, which are more expensive, whilst others may need surgical masks, which are cheaper. We will keep you updated!
