Over the past 22 years, Citibank and United Way of Taiwan (UWT) have been working together to raise funds for small and medium-sized social welfare groups so as to help those in need. Taiwanese singer Claire Kuo has taken on the role of the Ambassador of Love for the 22nd Citi-United Way Fundraising Campaign this year, calling for donations from members of the public.

The fundraising campaign will run until Feb 28 next year. Those who donate NT$500 or more for 12 consecutive months will receive a chicken doll and a small bag. With a promotional event featuring capsule toys representing five different disadvantaged groups, this year’s event aims at informing donors about the recipients of their donations.

The online activity featuring capsule toys will begin next month. By donating at least NT$200 through the official Web site of the event, donors will have a chance to win a capsule toy.
