sunrise-charity-bazaarOn June 2nd, Sunrise Montessori International Preschool and Kindergarten hosted their first Charity Bazaar on campus, in cooperation with A Pleines, a non-profit organization managed by the French community. The aim is to help raise funds to aid former leper villages, orphans, blind children and disabled adults and families in China .

Some of the families have donated items to sell, others came to volunteer and a lot came to buy. All of which helped a lot in making this event possible.

Representatives from Ohana, one of the famous department stores in Shanghai, and Food Pedia, an organic farm supplier of different organic products in and around Shanghai, also contributed to making this event a success. They have donated part of their profits to APM’s projects. With everyone giving his or her part, APM was able to raise RMB 15,200! These funds shall be able to cover 6 months’ salaries for Braille teachers in Bethel Orphanage for Blind Children or other charitable works which will benefit other organizations that APM sponsors.

It feels good to help! Sunrise plans to make it a part of the school tradition.
