All proceeds will be donated to the Hong Kong Red Cross

(Hong Kong: 29 May 2006) PARKnSHOP announced today the launch of a fundraising effort to raise money for victims in Indonesia earthquake disaster.

Starting from tomorrow 30 May 2006 for 2 weeks until 13 June 2006, donation boxes will be placed at the checkouts of all PARKnSHOP stores to encourage customers to do as much as they can to raise fund to help thousands of victims affected by the destructive disaster.

Every cent will count to help relieve the emergency need of the victims.'
