Let us first introduce the foundation. Founded on 24th Jan 2020 in Delaware, US, the 721 Foundation operates completely independently and does not belong to any political party or organization.
Now, back to Freedom Translators! Freedom Translators is the first charity project of the foundation. Freedom Translators have started operating since the end of January and have been promoting since February. From February to the end of March, our translation team has translated around 20,000 words in a month and a half. We have translated English texts to Chinese as well as the other way round. Most notably, we have translated 10,000 words from Chinese to English in one of our projects within a week. We have received positive feedback from clients saying that they are very satisfied with our work. Therefore, please give our young adults a chance!
From our 5 pro-democracy clients, we have collected a total of HKD21,541 among which HKD10,770.5 will go to the 6 translators who participated in the projects(the total number of the translators is 11). Since jobs are allocated on a first-come first-served basis and our translators have different studying and working schedules, the HKD10,770.5 were not evenly split among the six of them. Some translate more and earn more. Some have other commitments hence take up less jobs and earn less.
The remaining 10,770.5 were handed to 721 Foundation for reimbursement on the following expenses:3 protesters specializing in graphic design and promotions were employed and paid to them on designing the promotional posters of Freedom Translators, website of 721 Foundation and other matters related to the website. The registration fee of registering the 721 Foundation in Delaware and daily operating costs and so on.
We have recently opened a bank account in the US. Should you want to support us and our work, please donate us:
