[SCIE web news, March 6th, 2017] Last Thursday, on the second of March, the Charity Group of the SCIE Prefects successfully held the second annual Raise and Give Day in the school. Considering both donations as well as money made from the event, we raised over 20,000RMB for the Promised Land.
Here, both the school as well as the Prefect body would like to thank all of the stall managers, students and teachers who stopped by, and parents who made donations online!
Since last semester, regardless of the weather or pressure from academics, a group of people would sit in the Prefect Room every Wednesday afternoon thinking about how we could allow people to have fun while at the same time helping the kids at the Promised Land. Could we live up to the expectations set by the previous class?
After some publicity, we first collected a little more than 10 sign-ups from A2 students who were interested in setting up stalls. We then opened up registration to other year groups, which resulted in even more people expressing interest in helping out. This year’s vendors went all out, engaging in eye-catching advertisements across WeChat moments and setting up flashy stalls in the school courtyard. Needless to say, the event was met with unprecedented levels of energy and positivity.

Halfway through the event, we invited Sparkling to bring us a surprise performance.
Again, we’d like to give our sincere gratitude to everyone who contributed to this event! Regardless of whether it was underclassmen helping to advertise, a comment from an Oxford-bound genius saying how great it was to donate their first amount of money earned to the Promised Land, or the teachers who helped get the event going at the beginning by “spending,” it’s through these small moments that allowed us to see such a lively, yet caring SCIE.
Perhaps using our influence to recruit others in contributing to this path of charity is, I believe, the best side of effective altruism in this age.
