Who are we?
The Giving Tree is a charity event managed by The Community Center Shanghai in co-operation with Shanghai Charity Foundation. Their aim is to provide as many gift bags full of seasonal supplies and clothes as they can to the children of migrant families from underdeveloped, rural areas of China.
