Hong Kong Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF HK) has received overwhelming support from the general public and celebrities since the launch of ‘I Donate My Birthday’ in 2012, to turn the birthday blessings and gifts they received to relief supplies for children in need. As Snoopy, the main character of cartoon strip ‘Peanuts’ comes to Harbour City (Hong Kong) this summer, it also donates its 65th birthday on 4 October to UNICEF HK. Its support marks the first support of a cartoon character in the ‘I Donate My Birthday’ fundraising initiative. Public can visit Snoopy’s ‘I Donate My Birthday’ page at www.unicef.org.hk/snoopybirthday, and celebrate its birthday by sending the ‘Bundle of Dream’ as a gift to children in need. The ‘Bundle of Dream’ gift includes exercises books and pencils, which help provide deprived children a chance to receive education and pursue their dreams.
