The Shanghai office of worldwide vacation exchange provider DAE hosted the “Relay of Love, Youth Carry On” charity sale late last year at the Hui Da Business Park in Shanghai.
During the event, hundreds of people volunteered to give out their belongings to be auctioned, following the theme, “exchange things with love.”
The charity sale raised a total amount of 25,430 RMB (US$4,200), which was donated to the Pearl Retrieving Project, an organization helping impoverished high school students to continue their school learning. Since beginning in 2004, the foundation has changed the lives of more than 40,000 students.
Head of DAE China, Yang Chen, said the event was an opportunity for DAE China to support a local cause with a positive outcome that could be seen and felt within the community.
“When business is expanding, social responsibility also grows,” said Mr Chen. “DAE is a company that not only measures success by the number of members we have, but how we can make a difference to those members’ lives and the lives of others.
“DAE China strives to give back whenever possible, and we call upon more enterprises and individuals to do the same. We’d like to see more positive energy dedicated to building a better community as a whole.”
