This week we bring you the tale of a less fortunate ending. Monty was a cute and lively dog that led a hard and difficult life. Recently Hong Kong Dog Rescue saved him from his abuse. But even with all the love and care he received from them his days were short lived. Sally Andersen, of Hong Kong Dog Rescue, reminds of us that we may not be able to save every troubled animal, but we should find it in our hearts to try. http://www.so-u.tv/playVideo.php?contestid=&id=1146

B-ball for the China earthquake victims was played steet style and raised over 80,000 HKD last week in an all out exhibition match between AND1 U.S.A and local celebrities team which included Jaycee Chan. Jaycee made major cash by catching nothing but air 8 times in a row in a free throw contest. 24 Herbs, SIR JBS MC’d the game and the whole band kept the fans out of their seats during halftime. The final score didn’t matter because everyone won on this night. Look for the next Streetball event — it should not be missed.
