The market is organized by Hong Kong Charity Bazaar in benefit of ImpactHK. Jeff Rotmeyer started ImpactHK when he saw a great need for fresh ideas on how the homeless in Hong Kong are treated.
Jeff believes multiple connections are essential for overcoming difficult times and he is extremely passionate about giving people in need an opportunity at happiness.
