Vancouver realtor Crystal Hung has been honoured with the Realtors Care Award by the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) for her extensive fundraising, philanthropic and community work across Metro Vancouver.
The award recognizes Metro Vancouver realtors who demonstrate a sustained commitment to charitable, fundraising or volunteer activities that strengthen communities and support people in need.
Hung co-founded Pixel Moments, a successful micro-donation platform that has inspired a younger generation to raise more than $400,000 since 2021.
According to REBGV, she personally donated $1 million to the UBC Sauder Powerhouse Expansion Project. In addition, Hung sits on fundraising and leadership committees of several organizations.
Apart from her technological innovations, Hung believes in traditional, grassroots community work. You can often find her making sandwiches for the homeless on Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.
Jennifer Quart, REBGV Chair, praised Crystal for her inspiring and relentless community advocacy and her ability to engage different groups and generations of people in our communities to give back and help those in need.
Quart adds, “She is a selfless, community-minded professional that we’re proud to have within our (realtor) membership.”
