[First Name],

This week, we are taking the time to listen.

The rains have arrived, bringing nature's spring orchestra of frogs, birds and cicadas and they're belting out melodies and rhythms in full harmony. We're listening to the HK Observatory and paying even closer attention to their thoughts on climate change in the face of an intense and unpredicted storm over the weekend.

The sounds of youth are ramping up as young people around the world raise their voices for change and change is happening. Cathay crews who listened to their own conscience have been disciplined for keeping food out of the landfill. We believe Pepsi when they say they listened to customers, using Earth Day to announce their decision to ditch sugar and plastic bottles but we're not sure how we're going to shop our way out of this.

Moving the needle on recycling is not easy and we realize Hong Kong civil servants have their plates full so we appreciate the government's Tellme123 service. Becoming a responsible citizen is even easier with their new app and we know they do listen.

When The HK Organic Resource Centre releases their new survey findings at City Organic Day in Central next month, we will be listening to hear just how much arsenic, mercury, colorless malachite green and other residual pollutants they found in fish samples at local wet markets.

In the meantime, there is plenty of music for outdoor listening at the spring wellness festivals, along with markets and yoga and workshops and talks. Visit the calendar for details or sign in to see more events that don't make the website calendar. It's a great place to explore ways to collaborate with each other.

Our purpose is to support real people we know in real life so we love hearing again and again about the heartbeat folder (it's a thing) and listening to lovely feedback. It is especially rewarding to hear from our long-time members saying how much they look forward to reading every week from the beginning.

It's been a while since we asked so we're reaching out to request a contribution to keep the lights on and continue produce our free community resources for anyone who everyone who is listening.

Talking is easy and doing is important.

Are you listening?
