Saw this poor man this evening in one of the busiest streets in Hong Kong tonight. Sitting on a worn out wheelchair barefooted, he used his toes to crawl to his place for money-begging. He felt down when his wheelchair got stuck on the curb, a car behind him stopped in time. He didn’t get up but instead bowed to the driver for apology.

Portrait stamp is quite a challenge, but this one is a lot of fun.
I like adventurous people. She is certainly one of the most. She made this stamp full of character.

The little stamps for my coming charity project are done! They end up looking pretty nicely!
The origin of this project was a Hong Kong TV show I watched last year.Sorry for no subtitles in this video clip, but you may guess what happened with this guy called Simon here. He is a successful entrepreneur owing several restaurant chains with over a thousand employees. In the show, he had to experience the life of the poor and was given only 50 Hong Kong dollars a day (around 7 US dollars) to live with. With not enough money to eat, he discovered a restaurant where suspended meals were offered. (Suspended meals are pre-paid meals which are targeted to the people in need for a meal. Any one can go to the restaurant and ask for a suspended meal with no question asked. It is a form of donation of food for those in need) Touched by the warmth of this act, Simon has made up his mind to do something similar later on, but on a company’s level. He not only donates over hundreds of suspended meals per month these days, but he also urges other restaurant owners like him to do the same.

Stamps for coming charity project. They were carved while my Dad was watching the World Cup. Heehee……
First stamp charity project from DIY Eraser Stamp!
Rubber stamp carvers like me should realise that during the stamp-carving process, not only do we produce beautiful stamps, but also a lot of rubber residues/leftovers. Those little pieces of rubber are too much of a waste if being thrown away, and I always think of ways to utilize them.
In views of the growing population of the people in need in Hong Kong, I came up with an idea yesterday by carving small stamps with the little rubbers and raise a fund in my stamp booth ( July 19 & 20th, in APM Kwun Tong). I would set up a donation box in my booth and any one are welcome to donate a free amount of money. In return, they will receive a stamp from me. The donation will be 100% donated to 叙福樓集團有限公司 for their Suspended Meal Project ( Suspended Meal Restuarant List http://goo.gl/POHu8z ). Donation amount details will be posted afterwards,
This may be a beginning of something big. I welcome you all to participate. Thank you very much.
