DIY Fortune Cookie

In this seemingly dim moment, we as youth may not be able to physically affect change in policies or to save lives in this crisis. However, with our unique role in this society, we can carry a passionate heart and a mind of creativity. A simple handmade “Fortune Cookie” can make a great impact. This is a small gift and yet is a powerful way to support and encourage the frontline workers who are tirelessly working hard everyday. As of today (May 15th), we have given out 550 handmade “Fortune Cookies” filled with love, to the frontline workers in the GTA. Come and join us in sending out our blessings to the essential workers. A “Fortune Cookie DIY Kit” is available upon request.

抗疫期間,我們不一定走在前線或做些甚麼,其實年輕人也可以有自己獨特的位置和創作能力,縱然在隔離令之下,也是阻擋不了熱忱的。我們悄悄行動自創和製作了許多「幸福曲奇」小掛飾,內藏寫滿祝福和鼓勵的句子,單純地送給在隔離令下一直服務社區的人。我們相信一顆4厘米的「幸福曲奇」小掛飾,會成為巨大的心靈支持,感謝在困難中依然堅守崗位繼續前行的人。至今我們已送出550個親手做的「幸福曲奇」,並推出了製作「幸福曲奇」資料包,讓人們可以在家學藝,繼續創作新作品,給身邊人打氣。

About the Fortune Cookie

The fortune cookie has a long history of giving people a word of wisdom or luck. Not only does it deliver a timely message to the eater, but it also gives a sense of warm comfort after a meal. Inspired by the edible “Fortune Cookie”, a group of young people created different kinds of fortune cookies by using a variety of materials. Each filled with words of love wanting to encourage the people around us, in hopes that this can speak a thousand words of blessing in this time of crisis.
