You matter. I matter. Every life matters.

Help us spread awareness for this issue!


Since September 2015, there have been an alarming 23 suicide cases in Hong Kong, the majority of whom are students. 7 suicide incidents happened in just 9 days, many attributed to unhappiness and high levels of stress. We could not remain silent. We want the world to know that every life matters!

Our hope is for all people to see that they are valued and loved -- no one has to be alone in their struggles. We started the campaign, "You Matter" on 15 March 2016 and began to spread this message to empower people to share hope and celebrate life. Please join us in this effort to reach our city with this message.
