A group of students from Shanghai American School (SAS) organized a fundraising activity and generously donated what they collected to Adoption Resources China (ARC).
The name of our club is GIFTS Club which stands for “Giving Individuals a Future To Succeed.” In order to raise money for donation, we sold books and lemonade in fall carnival which is a school event.
Then, we did Rose and Candy Grams which was selling roses and candies on Valentine’s day to earn more money. Moreover, we decided to sell books to both elementary and high school students not only to raise money for donation but also promote literacy in school.
Lastly, we visited an orphanage and spent time with the kids which allowed us to be more involved and engaged in helping others.” – Jenny Kwon
