Family Opportunity: Film a video greeting for an elderly living in care-home
Description: Throughout the crisis, HandsOn volunteers have played an important role in providing emotional support and social connection to Hong Kong's isolated elderly—whose well-being has been at great risk throughout the crisis.
We now invite volunteers and families to film a caring video message that can be shown to the resident of an elderly care home. These videos deliver greetings and encouragement and will be given as a gift to elderly. In a one-to-four minute video, volunteers are invited to introduce themselves and share words of season's greetings, warmth and positivity, letting the recipient know that the community cares about them.
We will ask each volunteer to film a 1 to 4 minute video with a short self- introduction, greetings/blessings for the elderly and ending by sharing their blessings and good wishes. Volunteers are welcome to include a short story, poem, song or performance!
Video format: mp4, m4v, mov, avi, wmv

The greeting videos will be sent to Pilot Scheme on Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui Welfare Council Multi-disciplinary Outreaching Support Teams for the Elderly(Kowloon East)
