Charity Christmas Market and Unlimited Festive Sales Rewards
Hong Kong, 20th November 2020 – LANDMARK and Santa Paws & friends remind us to share our love, goodwill and cheer this festive season with a special, charity-inspired Christmas theme that celebrates the wonderful sentiments of the Spirit of Giving.
LANDMARK marks the holiday festivities this year with Santa Paws, his exciting new Paws family member, Polar Paws, and their loving friends and companions. Their heart-warming Christmas story sees everyone gather together in donating their scarves, mufflers, candies, smiles and skating boots to kindle life and the Christmas spirit into Snowman with the Spirit of Giving, before Santa Paws’ special hat then brings their snowy companion magically to life. Their act of shared generosity reminds us all of the importance of love, kindness and thinking of others at this special time of year.
The Spirit of Giving Charity Christmas Market
Santa Paws, Polar Paws and their magical Snowman friend’s appearance at Hong Kong’s premier luxury shopping and lifestyle destination is sure to put everyone in a special holiday mood throughout the festive season. This year, the ground floor of LANDMARK ATRIUM has been transformed into a special Charity Christmas market from now until 3rd January 2021, inspired by the newly unveiled Hongkong Land HOME FUND. Created to support the long-term development of our future generations and our aspiration to contribute to the fostering of an inclusive society in Hong Kong, an initial HK$100 million Hongkong Land HOME FUND donation has been announced this Christmas.
Resplendent with a giant Snowman and Christmas tree, plus delightful appearances from Santa Paws and his friend Robo, the Charity Christmas Market installation features booths dedicated to supporting three non-profit organisations in Hong Kong.
“This Christmas, LANDMARK is celebrating the ‘Spirit of Giving’ with a charitable initiative that aims to support younger members of the Hong Kong community, helping inspire and encourage children and youths to fully pursue their aspirations,” explains Mr Raymond Chow, Executive Director of Hongkong Land. “Visitors to our Charity Christmas Market can enjoy the festivities and fine offerings to be experienced at LANDMARK, while the Christmas story by our Santa Paws and friends reminds us of the joy in helping others at this traditional time of communal celebration.”

Visitors will enjoy browsing three delightful booths, with all proceeds from sales going to one of LANDMARK’s three designated charities, Youth Outreach, Make-A-Wish Hong Kong, and Principal Chan Free Tutorial World.
