"Ho-Sum" is Cantonese and literally translates into "good heart". It is a term normally used to describe a kind-heart, a generous person.
Ho-Sum.org is a non-profit organisation founded by a group of young professionals who want to increase volunteerism in the community and awareness of charities in Hong Kong. They aim to achieve this by leveraging the power of the Internet to bridge the information gap and to make the whole process of volunteering more efficient and enjoyable. The site is designed to be an easy-to-use, one-stop online meeting place where volunteers are connected with credible charities in Hong Kong. Charities post projects online and volunteers can easily browse through projects and register to participate. The entire process is at no cost for both parties.
