Maovember 2021 Recap!


Each Maovember is unique and the 2021 campaign, which raised 94,772 rmb or 947,720 mao, is no different. While we faced uncertainty due to the COVID crisis, this year saw the highest revenues per event since Maovember started. On top of that, Maovember stayed true to its philosophy of holding fun quirky events, including (click links for details and more photos):

Annual WE Brewery Corn Toss Tourney

Dog Pub Crawl at Peach, Great Leap, Jing-A & Pi Bar

Mystery Wine Party at CHEERS 32

Corn Toss, Flip Cup & Open Mic with Beijing International Ice Hockey

Maovember Photo Auction at O’Steak

Inaugural BufPong Tourney at Great Leap

Marselan Beer & Wine Party at Jing-A

As per tradition, Maovember donates every single mao it raises, with any admin costs covered by our volunteers. This year’s funds went to The Library Project. Of the money raised, rmb 89,522 was donated via our unique QR code with Library Project (donors can use the QR code in the poster here to see their submission) while rmb5200 was donated directly via The Library Project’s main account.

Many thanks to everyone who made Maovember 2021 possible and I encourage people to check out the event links to see just how much fun we had while raising money for a good cause!
