Description of Ambient execution
Drinking water in the dry Northwest China comes from little rainwater in water cellars. However, people in Hong Kong take clean water for granted and never pay attention to the problem. We wanted to use a small scale outdoor ambience to raise public awareness on this plight and ask for donations. We created umbrella bags with pictures of bucket, glass and bowl at the bottom and placed them in shopping malls, where people might donate more. As rainwater was filling up umbrella bags, message that drops of rainwater could quench in Northwest China come across. Donations increased enough to build more than 5,300 water cellars in 2009, benefitting over 20,000 people.
