FIRST EVER SANTA’S GROTTO AT BSB THRIVES!

04 12월 2014

Year 12 CAS students shared how their BSB Santa's Grotto successfully raised funds for the
Little Adoption Shop & also made a special and magical Christmas for the kids.

       On Saturday, 22nd of November, we hosted BSB’s first ever Santa’s Grotto at the annual Christmas Fayre. All profits went to the Little Adoption Shop, a local dog shelter that does some great work for the dog community in Shunyi.

       There was a record breaking number of attendees at the Fayre this year; easily exceeding 2500. The Grotto was by far the most popular event, with families flocking to our stalls, compiling a queue extending from the theatre to Chatterbox Café. Before the Fayre had even officially started, a lady had approached us and immediately bought 60RMB worth of baked goods. After that, to quote John Green, we were on a “roller coaster that only goes up”.

          The Little Adoption Shop was the real star of the day, though, not us. Every time we visit, there’s another dog, debilitated by a broken leg, a blind eye, a chronic shaking, having been rescued by the founder Christopher Barden and his lone employer Paul Yu. More still are just puppies, balls of white cotton, like all the millions more freezing to death on the streets of Beijing.

          We, who helped gain the success of Santa’s Grotto, wanted to achieve two things. First, we wanted to make a difference for the Little Adoption Shop, since they have problems paying all the medical bills. But we also wanted to make a special and magical Christmas for the kids. Combining both ideas was the way we found to link both targets and make a great end of the year for the dogs and for the children.

          Making a big impact to every child that visited Santa touches us even more, because in our hearts we know we are making a big difference.  For this cause, Santa’s Grotto helped us raised a total of 7,130 RMB.  This money will be given to the Little Adoption Shop, which will help them to pay the medical bills, the amount of food needed weekly and perhaps the eye surgery of one of the dogs, Jing-Jing. Also, the dogs of the main shelter stay outside, so Chris is planning to use part of the money to buy blankets to protect the dogs from the cold days of the Beijing winter.

          Hosting Santa’s Grotto this year was an unbelievably enjoyable experience. We’d love to do it again next year; make sure you don’t miss it!
