Lift Shenzhen and Lazy Laowai are teaming up again to bring you a Spirit of Christmas dinner December 24 at Mix’d Café Bar in Shekou. This time they have partnered with a wonderful organization called Treasure of Hope out of Dongguan to do something extra special – an angel tree. Angel trees are a way to give the gift of Christmas to others through the kindness of sponsors like you and I.
For the last 10 years, Treasures of Hope has been actively raising awareness about the needs of the Chinese community and gathering necessary funds needed to support orphans, youth from poverty backgrounds, those affected by leprosy, educational needs and medical situations. During Christmas they organize ‘angel’ trees for other organizations such as HANDA, Hope of Love, Sunshine Academy and others to spread Christmas cheer to those less fortunate.
Proceeds from the Turkey Trot are being used to make the entrance fee only be RMB60 for a delicious, western style dinner, but guests must also bring a Christmas gift which will be given to the young adult orphans (“angels”) at Hope of Love in Guangxi. It is quite cold there and most of the residents are bed-ridden. Gift options are warm and colorful throw blankets, burly scarves, and/or thick gloves. Also, feel free to include packaged snacks in the gift. The more, the merrier.
If you don’t wish to eat the set dinner, the full menu will also be available. We strongly encourage those doing so to still bring a gift for a sponsored ‘angel’ so we can help as many of people as possible this holiday season.
Please join us for an intimate dinner with two great communities as we celebrate what Christmas is all about: love.
