[2015-11-10] You are Invited to the "Passing the Torch" Annual Appreciation Gala

Dear Friends:

We cordially invite you to our "Passing the Torch" Annual Appreciation Gala at Cupertino's Quinlan Community Center from 1 to 4 pm on Dec 12.

Founded in 1997, Shin Shin Educational Foundation has been working to bridge the gap between urban and rural schools in China, as well as help impoverished Chinese elementary schools build infrastructure and fulfill their basic needs. We have raised tens of millions of US dollars to build or refurbish over 340 Shin Shin schools. These funds enabled us to implement various programs, including principal training, teacher training, computerized education, and book donations. As a result, the educational facilities and standards have steadily improved year over year.

None of these would’ve been possible without your support , devotion, and contribution. Our volunteers would love to share with you what we have accomplished in 2015, and our plans for the future. Please continue to support the hundreds of thousands of Shin Shin children – they need you!

(Please sign up at Eventbrite)
