The Chi Fan for Charity Shanghai 2013 beneficiary vote finally came to a close at 6pm on June 20th, and we are proud to say that thousands of votes were cast! This was an extremely pleasant surprise, and on behalf of the Austen Morris Associates organisers of Chi Fan for Charity, we deeply appreciate your enthusiasm and participation. After tallying up the votes, we have conclusively determined the organizations that will become this year’s charity beneficiaries! On June 21st we were pleased to announce that The Renewal Center, Home Sweet Home and Heart to Heart Shanghai will be receiving the funds raised from the 2013 Shanghai Chi Fan for Charity event on November 9th!
Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 5.18.46 PMThe Renewal Center started in 2008 and works to create sustainable pathways out of homelessness in Shanghai by offering bespoke services according to individual need and aim to move our program participants towards meaningful lives off the streets. At Home Sweet Home, the homeless and disabled are given an opportunity to change their lives, with the aim of self acceptance, equipping to fulfill their full potential, independent living and employment. Heart to Heart Shanghai is a Shanghai based non-profit community outreach organization. We are composed entirely of volunteers who donate time and support to children from extremely poor families who are undergoing heart surgery and who give financial assistance to rural Chineseschools who require libraries and other essentials.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the other organizations that had applied. There was an amazing mix of candidates, all of which had unique approaches to their charitable missions. Again, there were thousands of votes cast, and the competition for the top three spots proved to be very tight, so rest assured that there is ample supply of support here in Shanghai for all charity organizations. We look forward to, and welcome all applicants to stay in touch and get involved again next year! The work you all do is truly invaluable to our community.
As we continue gearing up for this year’s event, there are still many other ways to get involved. We have already received a lot of feedback from those eager to contribute – the more the merrier! Chi Fan for Charity has nearly doubled in size every year since it began in Beijing in 2009, and we are ambitious to have a similar impact this year, so do not hesitate to contact us!
