    Charity sale of kids' paintings

2005-12-16 08:40

After a successful public charity donation called "Holding a loving heart while decorating the tree with benevolence" last year, Days Hotel & Suites Beijing and Regal Palace together with the Beijing Children's Hospital and the Beijing Health Foundation For Needy Children, plan to intensify support with a "Charity Sale of Children's Paintings." All paintings are awarded works from the Cross-Straits Children's Painting Competition together with three children's hospitals from Chinese mainland and Taiwan, including the Beijing Children's Hospital.

During the event, a "Heart-to-Heart" tree, with heart-shaped cards, will be placed in the hotel lobby. Each card is marked with a bed number of a sick child and the disease he or she is suffering from. If you want to encourage the child, you can choose a card and write down your wishes. A "love messenger" from the hotel will deliver them to children in the Beijing Children's Hospital.

In addition, a special counter has been set up in a kiosk to sell festival presents. The funds raised will be given to the Beijing Health Foundation For Needy Children.

A start-up event for the sale will be held in the lobby of Days Hotel & Suites Beijing at 10 am, December 15, 2005. And the whole event will last until January 16, 2006.

For more information on how to help call: 6773-1234 ext 3521 (Qu Li at Days Hotel & Suites Beijing) or 6805-7691 (Chen Kun at Beijing Health Foundation For Needy Children) or 6802-0376 (Wu Yuhong at Beijing Children's Hospital).
