Help Us Prepare a #KINDREDPACKET22

What if the tradition of exchanging red packets can mean more?
Lunar New Year is when many of us in the ESEA (East and Southeast Asian) diaspora exchange red packets (red envelope / Lai See 利是/ Hong Bao 紅包 / Ang Pao) as a symbol of good luck.
Join kindredpacket in extending this tradition a little further to those truly in need of support!
Help us raise funds and awareness of charities and grassroots projects doing incredible work within the ESEA community and beyond.
Last year, we've raised over £6000. Let’s do it again and see how far we go this time, shall we?
As a token of gratitude, join for a fortnight of gathering  and gift giving where you can help celebrate ESEA voices and support ESEA-owned businesses over the Lunar New Year.
Above all, making sure no one ever needs to celebrate this beautiful tradition alone. :)
Everybody is welcome to contribute and support this cause!
