Operation Santa Claus (OSC) is an annual charity campaign jointly run by the South China Morning Post (SCMP) and Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK). Its aim is to make a difference to the community and beyond by combining the fundraising power of two of the most respected news organisations in the city. Since 1988, OSC has brought joy, goodwill and over HK$333 million to 320 charities.
OSC's mission statement is to drive and lead the Spirit of Giving to bring people together to brighten Hong Kong’s community. OSC amplifies charitable good work to inspire others to do the same. It is a platform for cooperation and collaboration and builds a close-knit support network to work with corporates, donors and charitable projects to create real change to support those in need in HK by driving fundraising initiatives.
This year the fundraising theme of Operation Santa Claus ("OSC") is Performing Arts.
