Announcing the winner of our helper appreciation giveaway
- Written by arounddb, June 2017
This May, Around DB and Life on Lantau teamed up with ethical helper agency Maid For You for a giveaway to celebrate helper appreciation month.
Employers were invited to nominate their domestic helpers for the chance to win a HK$300 cinema voucher and a HK$400 Pizza Express voucher. We received lots of entries from grateful employers, keen to share a few words about why their helper means so much to them, and we can now announce that the lucky winner is Adoracion, nominated by her employer Gemmarie Ho.
Adoracion has worked for Gemmarie's family for 34 years, having previously worked for her parents.
Speaking to Around DB and Life on Lantau, Adoracion said, "I would like to thank Maid for You and Around DB/ Life on Lantau for selecting me as the winner of the Helper appreciation Month giveaway. I'm looking forward to pizza and a movie with friends!"
Gemmarie added, "Such a wonderful initiative to bring awareness and appreciation to the hidden superheroes/ true underdogs of Hong Kong. These beautiful women sacrifice so much and leave their own families to be the magical thread that holds many of our own households together. Thank you Maid for you and Around DB/ Life on Lantau for choosing Adoracion. I could not think of a lady more deserving of it."
Thank you to everyone who nominated their helpers. It's truly heartwarming to see so much gratitude for the hard work that these wonderful ladies put in.
Congratulations, Adoracion! We hope you enjoy your day out!
