'A Fragile Planet’ silent auction raises over $118,000 for charity

On March 8, Jacada Travel hosted a silent auction at The Haven Hong Kong to auction off ‘A Fragile Planet’ photographs, all of which were captured by award-winning National Geographic photographer, Keith Ladzinski.

With a shared vision on sustainability, Jacada and Ladzinski, who have collaborated for almost two years, brought this event to life in the hopes of raising awareness on the issue of climate change amongst Hong Kong audiences.

“I hope that any picture that I shoot within the climate change world will cause just even one person to commit to making a difference, no matter how small,” explains Ladzinski.

Collectively, over (HKD) $118,000 was raised. All proceeds will be divided 50/50 and will be going towards Eco Drive Hong Kong and Sea Legacy.
