A former investment banker, our founder Edward uses his knowledge of billion dollar deals to help get millions to the neediest families in Hong Kong. 

“I could only see a clearer picture of what’s going on as an outsider,” our founder told the South China Morning Post this month, referring to his decision to quit the world of investment banking five years ago. “You would not question something when it’s your job to keep it alive. I left when I came to realize there were timely, more important issues at stake.”

Through ChickenSoup Foundation, Edward has lobbied private businesses for resources – from cash donations to skilled volunteers and services – to save families from simultaneous economic, social, and health crises.  Read on to unveil how he started to cut “deals” between the neediest and donors through his networks and knowledge.
