We realize you may receive many requests for donations, however, we would truly appreciate any contribution you may consider (in cash or in kind) to help support this groundbreaking event. Information about the various sponsorship opportunities are outlined below.
In return for your contribution, we will be happy to acknowledge and promote your company and/or your products during the event. Depending on the sponsorship level, your company name and logo will appear on our printed and digital media for the event, in addition to being posted on our websites (MDJunior.org and GYHS.org) and social media platforms(Facebook.com/MDJuniorOrg and Twitter @MDJr_org). Please talk to our Sponsorship Youth Leaders for more details.
WHY SHOULD YOU GET INVOLVED?
Address a Growing Need — Approximately 1 in every 5 youth experiences a severe mental disorder at some point during their youth (Source: WHO). There is a dire need to tackle the stigma associated with mental illness and aid development of resources to help youth facing such challenges.
Provide Community Leadership — Join local and global leaders on an international stage in Hong Kong to inspire youth to become the future leaders of tomorrow. Help educate and empower youth to have their needs understood and their voices heard on the critical issues surrounding their mental health.
Support Innovation — Your support will help make possible #MDJrHack, the first of its kind youth hackathon event in Asia. Youth will be challenged to build something that affects societal change in youth mental health. The idea is for youth to leverage their creative and computing skills, while demonstrating their problem solving capabilities and teamwork.
Gain Visibility — With a community of over 2600 students, their families and educators, HKIS is a premier education establishment, and a strong anchor of the local and international community . MDJunior intends to leverage various platforms to drive engagement. Global media presence is expected from Bloomberg, South China Morning Post and others.
