55,170 in Donations Delivered to Promised Land Today
By now it seems everyone has heard of the cancellation of the Charity Music Concert organized by ShekouDaily and originally scheduled for Saturday February 27th, 2016 in Sea World, Shekou.
The concert was a fundraiser for a local charity organization called Promised Land Special Education, Ltd; which helps raise the special needs children of non-Shenzhen hukou holders.
After the cancellation of the concert, many of the ticket holders opted to not request a refund so that the funds could still go to Promised Land. Local businesses, including Backstube Les 5 Chefs, Hans Mix Sushi, Kabir's Indian Restaurant, McCawley's, The Terrace, The Stage Live Music, and X-TA-SEA Sports Bar & Restaurant also contributed last weekend by offering to accept tickets held by ticket holders as cash payment for purchases in their bars and restaurants.
In addition, many others showed their support by purchasing the t-shirts that were made for the event.The Stage Live Music topped the list of places where t-shirts were sold over the weekend, by selling a total of 19 t-shirts.100% of the money received went to the fundraising efforts.
On Thursday March 3rd, Gary and Kiko of ShekouDaily visited Promised Land Special Education Ltd in Shekou to deliver the ¥55,170 donated by the various members of the community in Shekou. It was an exciting and emotional moment that concluded what some are now referring to as the greatest concert that almost happened in Shekou.
About half of the funds raised were donated by local organizations including Living Essential Oils/No Excuse Moms, The Snake Pit Committee, The Terrace, X-TA-SEA Sports Bar & Restaurant, ABNET, Cognition, and Vista-SK Medical Center.
Although this event is now officially over, the work at Promised Land continues.
