Will you be in Shanghai this Friday (October 23) and do you like to drink good wines? If so, you should consider to join a Charity Wine Tasting event at Mesa-Manifesto. The event is organized by Tom Stader of The Library Project, and the proceeds will go toward a library for an elementary school in Anhui province. The event is from 7-9 PM and entry is RMB 250 per person. As usual there is also a lucky draw with among others stays in the Royal Meridien and Marriott Hongqiao, plus diners and brunches at several locations. More info see here. You can get in touch with Tom directly at (+86) 159-2955-6183 or send him an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
In case you don’t know The Library Project, this initiative donates books and libraries to under-financed schools and orphanages in China and Vietnam. The project is based on the belief that education is the key motivator to breaking the cycle of poverty that exists in the developing world. So far about 179 library donations have been made, with another 14 this week to rural elementary schools in Sichuan province. If you want to support the Library Project by making a donation you can do so here. You can also opt to sponsor a complete library (USD 750 for a small one, USD 1100 for a big one), for more information see here.
