Saturday, Oct 12, 2019 – As the dust settles on our 11th Annual Captivating Charity Auction, we are left with nothing but gratitude and praise for the amazing community we are lucky to be surrounded by. Shenzhen, you were amazing.
Thank you SO MUCH for your support of our 10th year in China. Saturday night, 13th October, will be remembered for a long time as a night of grace, emotion, laughter, excitement, astonishment and exceeding generosity. Together, you raised RMB1.4million, helping Captivating in partnership with the Shenzhen Charity Federation, Shamtse Charity and LOVEQTRA, to seal the deal on impacting the lives of close to 1,000 girls this calendar year. SHENZHEN, YOU DID IT.
Having set an aggressive aim of raising RMB1.5 millions, we only dreamed we could get this close. In the process, over the coming 12 months (some starting within a matter of weeks):
100 single moms will start with own pig business
100 families will own their own greenhouse
400 children will be more secure in their schooling
427 women will attend health training
46 girls will start vocational schooling
80 girls will continue to be supported at the Seng Girls Home.
