Think Green and Live Green with KCR
The Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) and The Community Chest join hands again to launch The Community Chest Green Day Commemorative Ticket for use on The Community Chest Green Day on Friday, 23 June 2006. The theme for this year's Green Day is to "Think Green, Live Green", encouraging the public to take greener form of transport, to reduce the use of plastic bags, to reuse and to recycle resources.
Leon Lai, one of the board members of The Chest has created an illustration for the commemorative ticket. The visual depicts plants in green, orange and yellow colours giving the ticket a refreshing look.
By making a donation of HK$60 or more, one will receive a set of Community Chest Green Day Twin Tickets and Green Tips. The commemorative ticket will be valid for unlimited rides on KCR# and MTR* on the Green Day. All donation raised will be passed onto the Chest’s member agencies to enhance the "Medical & Health Services".
Tickets are now available at 7-Eleven stores at East Rail, Ma On Shan Rail, West Rail and MTR stations. Ticket sales counters will also be set up at East Rail Mong Kok and Sha Tin stations on the coming Saturday (17 June) and Sunday (18 June) from noon to 7:00 p.m. KCRC Corporate Volunteer Team will participate in promoting the ticket sales at the counters. Please support The Community Chest Green Day and think green, live green with KCR.
