The new academic year is about to start, and things are getting busy at Stepping Stones! We need volunteers to help with a number of different one day events. Please contact us if you would like to get involved!
1） Tencent Charity Day
Time: 7th -9th September
From September 7th to 9th, Tencent is launching a huge public fundraising campaign, and inviting outstanding charitable projects from all over China to participate. What’s more, they are donating between 99 million and 990 thousand RMB of their own to add to public donations at a ratio of 1 to X. (X will depend on the number of public fundraisers and the amount of money raised.)
For example, if 10 people donate 1 RMB each, Tencent are likely to donate 10 RMB or more!
We are looking for brave and confident people to set themselves a personal fundraising target and raise funds in their own way during the three days to support Stepping Stones’ projects. We will also be launching an online Crowdfunding campaign. Funds raised will help us to send more volunteers to teach English to children and teachers in more remote parts of China.
Give yourself a challenge to raise funds in restaurants, bars, your school campus event or your own online moments, etc.
2) Expat Show
Time: 9th -11th September
Location: Shanghai Exhibition Center
The Expat Show presents a great opportunity each year to present Stepping Stones to newly arrived expats as well as to catch up with old friends. Running for three days from 9th to 11th September, we depend on a rota of volunteers to help us to man the stall and answer questions about Stepping Stones. Come along and join the fun from 9.30am – 1.30pm or from 1.30pm to 5 or 6pm on any of these days!
3） Fields & Shanghai Center Welcome Back Event
Time: 3 September
Location: 1376, Nanjing Road West
We would also love to have your help at the Welcome Back Event held by Fields in association with the Shanghai Centre on Saturday 3rd September, from 9am to 6pm. Choose between the morning shift from 9am to 1.30pm, or the afternoon shift from 1.30pm to 6pm.
If you are available and interested in helping out any of the events, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 3209-0516 for more information.
