Operation Smile’s GKF Team raises funds in Beijing

Grab your calendars and mark in red: Nordic Ways’ charity partner Operation Smile is organising a Sunset BBQ event in collaboration with JW Marriott Hotel Group on the 12th of May in Chaoyang District of Beijing. The objective is to raise funds for creating new smiles via cleft lip and cleft palate surgery in Chinese lesser-priviliged communities, but will also put our Grassland Marathon in Xiwuqi into the spotlight.

The BBQ event will take place at The Lawn of JW Marriot Beijing as of 16:00, and will feature music performances and a lucky draw with great prizes. Entry at the door costs 300 RMB, of which 100 RMB goes to Operation Smile. More details on the poster below.

A large Operation Smile team will travel to Inner Mongolia to participate in the Genghis Khan Festival this year, and in so doing also raise funds for its cause. The organisation has just set up a special webpage with an online donation box, where people can contribute to bringing new smiles to children with facial deformities in China. Of course, it is also possible to donate directly via the Genghis Khan Festival’s online event registration form, and via the donation box stationed at Xiwuqi Hotel.
