About Appeal

Update - 10:27am, 23 May (Tuesday)

Good news everyone! All donations from this time of 10:27am on Tuesday 23rd May onward will be matched ONE FOR ONE!  

One of FlowBook's supporters has just called me to make this kind and generous gesture. He has chosen to remain anonymous but I am forever grateful. 

What this means is that we only need to raise about HKD$20,000 more (to fully cover credit card and SimplyGiving website fees). The rest of the matching funds will be transferred by bank transfer by the anonymous supporter. Any excess funds that are raised will be invested back into the rental and operations for FlowBooks for the immediate future.

Dear Friends and Supporters, 

It has been a courageous fight to save FlowBooks, and 7 days of huge effort from everyone. I cannot express how appreciative I am of every one of you who has donated, shared and supported this cause in one way or another. It has given me incredible hope and inspiration to keep FlowBooks alive for our generation and beyond. We needed to raise a minimum of HKD$150,000 for the landlord, but are still short of HKD$35,000. However, I am hopeful that with our continued efforts, we will be able to reach the target. The landlord has very kindly extended the deadline till Midnight on Wednesday, the 24th of May.

This is a very positive sign. I am very hopeful that we can reach this target and that I may continue to serve Hong Kong as a humble book keeper. I would also like to take this opportunity to share the story of an anonymous generous supporter, who learnt about my plight through Apple Daily on Friday, and appointed lawyers to handle discussions with the landlord's lawyers.

Please continue to support and share this campaign for the remaining time so that we can reach our target. 

I am truly grateful for each and everyone of you for your support, and want to individually thank each of you in the future.

Sincerely,
Your bookstore keeper at FlowBooks

We need your urgent help to keep FlowBooks open...

Our Plight

Dear Flow-ers of FlowBooks,

Thank you very much for your love and concern towards FlowBooks.

To save FlowBooks, we have been granted a few more days before the scheduled auction of our shop assets next Monday. This means we need to raise the needed HKD150,000 funds by Monday, 22 May 2017, to pay for part of the due rent and seek the reopening of FlowBooks. We would very much appreciate your help to donate at least HKD50 towards FlowBooks. 

If there are 3,000 book lovers (donors) to do so, that would be a miracle, as together with our community, we would be able to help save FlowBooks through raising the needed HKD150,000 by Monday, 22 May! 

Please Donate TODAY by clicking the "DONATE NOW" button above. 

We are happy to present each donor with a FlowBook to express our great gratitude once we FlowAgain! A FlowBook in your name would be donated towards a FlowKid who loves to read too. Thank you!

Best,
Your bookstore keeper at FlowBooks
