Here’s how you can help keep the lights on.
HK heartbeat is my labour of love and your help is needed in order to devote my full time and develop the business. After 21 years of uninterrupted community service with a team of one, it’s time to listen to my own heartbeat and find sustainable ways to pay the bills with paid subscriptions, memberships and regular contributions.
Along with the basics of rent and utilities, funds raised go towards fueling the business with real food I prepare from whole ingredients in a tiny kitchen while continually upgrading and learning the new tools of the media trade and making time for activities like accounts management, sales development and event production.
My early years taught me the secret of making a little go a long way. What is now called up-cycling and recycling and innovation and hacking has long been known in poverty circles as the farmer’s fix. I am a 20th century master of wasting nothing and the art of making a very little go a very long way.

Dear Kinzie, Thank you for your hard work over so many years. Labour of love are wonderful things but they can be under-appreciated. Good for you to remain open and be willing to move on in the way you are. Christine Loh

Many kind words of encouragement provided even more relief from my stress than the actual payments to the landlord and that was a relief beyond huge.
Wishing you continued success in what you do and a safe roof over your head. x Claire Law (Backed On Jun 11, 2019 Amount Hidden)
After the success of previous fundraising campaigns, friends advised me to adjusting the campaign to build future business stability and prevent future emergency crowdfunding to avoid eviction with online fees taking a significant chunk of the payments.
A summary of the 2019 campaign revenue and payments is below.
Ongoing fundraising provides momentum to build on our solid foundation.
We’ve got plenty of people power to harness for good.
Thank you for sharing the journey.

“I believe in you. Sometimes we have to dance with trouble and that trouble can lead us to new ways of “dancing”, help us re-kindle friendships, inspire new ideas and prompt us to re-envision our lives and business strategies. We’ve all danced with trouble. I appreciate the mercy, grace and humility trouble has brought me. When I lived in Hong Kong you showed me a lot humanity and i appreciate you so much. Sending a lot of love and courage your way.” Kim W (Backed with $1575.00 On Jun 11, 2019)
