The Happy Monk Launches Talent Showcase in Guangzhou for Coronavirus Charity

Guangzhou’s The Happy Monk chain is known for many things: Slick England-inspired interior decor, an extensive and diverse menu and, perhaps most notably, regular community events. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing prevention and control measures aimed at combating the novel coronavirus, events in Guangzhou have largely ground to a halt and The Happy Monk’s popular celebrations are no exception.

But if you thought the restaurant chain’s creative staffers would let a deadly epidemic stop them from creating a sense of community in Guangzhou, you need to sit yourself down and think again.

The Happy Monk is officially hosting its first-ever online talent showcase, ‘Show Us Your Talent.’ The campaign encourages all Guangzhouers to submit a short video of themselves engaged in a talent of theirs, be it poetry, painting, cooking, singing, table tennis, or anything else.

Videos need to be 45 seconds in length or shorter to be considered by judges for the public voting portion of the campaign. Of course, offensive subject matter is not welcome.

For each video that is submitted, the fine folks at The Happy Monk will donate RMB10 to a charity involved in the fight against the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. Additionally, each participant will receive a free cocktail voucher for The Happy Monk.

“If the worst of the virus is over, let’s all support each other and spread some unity, love and care. There has been too much finger pointing and unpleasantness, and now is the time to come together and grow from this experience,” says Jeremy Sargent, founder and proprietor of The Happy Monk. “And of course, have fun while participating, knowing that we’ll be donating to charity in support of the brave medical professionals working on the frontlines of the coronavirus outbreak.”

To participate, email your video to The deadline for submissions is March 8, 2020.
