|As a responsible and caring corporate citizen, VTech supports the communities in which it operates in a variety of ways, under the broad headings of sponsoring innovation, helping children and general corporate philanthropy.|
|Service and Support|
Each year, VTech sponsors the Hong Kong Business of Design Week and Hong Kong Awards for Industry, events which encourage innovation in our home market. In the US, VTech and First Book have partnered to donate 10,000 new books to children in low-income communities. Also in the US, VTech has a programme to partner with influencers to donate VTech toys to the Ronald McDonald House Charities during the holiday season. VTech UK staff joined the BTHA Triathlon organised by the British Toy and Hobby Association, a charity event to raise money for children’s charities across the country. In Hong Kong, VTech donated toys to Make-A-Wish Hong Kong, bringing joy to children suffering from serious illness. We also donated toys to underprivileged students in Qingyuan, China.
VTech is well known for its contribution to charities and youth organisations. We are recognised as a “Caring Company” by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service for our work with the community.
During the year, VTech volunteers visited the elderly and brought them blankets in winter to support HKSAGE’s senior citizen’s day. VTech staff also worked with Hong Kong Children and Youth Services to organise activities for underprivileged children and youngsters. Each year, VTech supports the blood donation campaign organised by the Hong Kong Red Cross, helping to save lives.
