Dear Shanghaiistas, we’d like to draw your attention to three charity events happening this week. There’s a 2nd hand product sale on Thursday, plus a book sale on Saturday. On Saturday evening, a big charity ball is held at the Cool Docks, with live music, live art performances and much more. Check out the details below:
Charity Sale APM @ Kingsville
On Thursday, November 1, A Pleines Mains will hold a 2nd hand products sale at Kingsville right in the heart of the former French Concession. They have good quality 2nd hand toys, children’s clothes, home decoration and even some new adult and children’s clothes on sale.
Money raised goes directly to support the work of NGO’s like Starfish Orphanage, Bethel and to help the socially disadvantaged. If you would like to volunteer or donate things you don’t need anymore, please get in touch with them here.
