Two weeks into its 2014 campaign, maovember has pushed past the 33,000-yuan mark. On Wednesday night, 28,623.1 yuan was handed to Orbis (see receipt below) and the team has more than 4,500 yuan in additional cash on hand that will soon be delivered. I’ll provide an exact total on Sunday night.
That puts this year’s campaign 13,000 yuan ahead of its original goal of 20,000 yuan, with plenty of stuff to come. Next on the itinerary: Funk Fever at Migas tonight (see here) and mulled wine at CHEERS in Sanlitun on Saturday and Sunday this weekend and next (see here).
Maovember teams restaurants, bars, vendors and customers for good causes. Our 2019 partner is Library Project, which has furnished more than 2000 libraries in rural schools. Learn more about Maovember here. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
