The Canadian International School of Hefei would like to invite you to an information session regarding our important fundraising initiative, “Building Libraries through Literacy Challenge.”
This far-reaching fundraiser is designed to encourage a love of reading, as well as challenge our students to take action towards helping others. Through reading, students will raise funds that will be used to purchase books for children in need in our local community, as well as for children living in the Chausy Orphanage of Belarus.
Last year we teamed up with Canadian Aid for Chernobyl, a Canadian-based non-for-profit organization, who helped us deliver books we purchased from the fundraiser to children in Belarus. On September 30th, the Director of Canadian Aid for Chernobyl, Mr. Dave Shaw will be presenting at our school. He would like to take this opportunity to thank us for our efforts last year and to help us kick-start the fundraiser this year!
Together, we can provide hope for children less fortunate than our own. Also, we can develop a reading culture in our school community. CISH would like your support to make this Fundraiser another great success!
The information session will begin at 2:00 pm in the CISH auditorium on Friday, September 30th. It will be a great opportunity for you to receive more information about this event and for everyone to learn about how our combined efforts can make a difference in young lives.
