The Good Causes
As always, 100% of proceeds from Chengdu Holiday Bazaar will go to carefully chosen local projects that apply and are vetted for the funds. This year, all of the Holiday Bazaar’s proceeds will support:
Pad for Hope
Pad for Hope helps to connect rural children with the wider world through technology-based learning that helps give a broader view of the possibilities for the future.
Hopeful Hearts is a Nanjing and Chengdu based organization that sponsors life-saving cardiac surgery for underprivileged children suffering from heart defects. Since its inception in 2003, Hopeful Hearts has helped more than 300 orphans and children from very poor families by funding some of the costs of surgery that families could not otherwise afford.
Hope Station provides care and support services to orphanages in and around Chengdu, aiming to enhance and enrich the lives of disadvantaged children. They partner with local organizations and people to provide real and lasting solutions for vulnerable children through caregiver training, support for childcare centers, adoption advocacy and support, and raising community awareness.
Chengdu Animal Rescue
CAR is a not for profit animal welfare organization providing emergency care and adoption programs for animals in Chengdu. Since its inception just over two years ago, Chengdu Animal Rescue has rescued approximately 350 animals.
Save the date and bring along your friends and family to enjoy this great day in the Chengdu calendar. All ticket proceeds will go to the wonderful charities, but if you would like to be more involved, there are many ways to help!
