Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts will launch a China-wide charity mooncake sale from the end of July to September 14, 2008.

The aim is to raise RMB1.5 million for its charity partner, Care for Children, an organization which helps rebuild children’s lives through foster care, including those in need in Sichuan Province.

From Huhhot to Beijing to Guangzhou, 24 Shangri-La and Traders hotels will join forces in this fundraising effort.  Care for Children will use the donated funds to train local workers to support foster parents and orphans.

Four mooncakes in two assorted flavors, in red and white lotus paste, are packaged in specially designed Shangri-La metal mooncake boxes in striking silver and red, priced at RMB138 each box. From every box of charity mooncakes sold, RMB40 will be donated to Care for Children.

Shangri-La’s 24 mainland China hotels are located in Beihai, Beijing, Baotou, Changchun, Changzhou, Chengdu, Dalian, Fuzhou, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Harbin, Huhhot Qingdao, Shanghai, Shenyang, Shenzhen, Suzhou, Wuhan, Xian and Zhongshan. Visit the website for specific location information!
