Have you ever wanted to help someone less fortunate or give a life-saving gift, but you weren’t sure where to start? Lucky for us all, Roundabout makes changing lives an easy process to get into at any level — baby steps or giant leaps.
Meet Wang Xiao Yan, a 16-year-old girl from a village in Shanxi that has been on the mind and in the heart of those at Roundabout since last fall. Xiao Yan was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in the leg, the most common malignant tumor that develops in the bone. While she has already undergone surgery to remove the cancer, chemo treatment must continue to try to prevent the tumor from spreading.
To help cover the RMB 80,000 needed to cover chemotherapy and additional treatments, Roundabout is planning its biggest book fair ever, coming up on Saturday, March 16 at Beijing City International School (BCIS). From 10am-3pm, come browse amongst thousands of good quality books in many languages and genres, priced from as little as RMB 1 for children’s books to RMB 20 for quality hardcover selections.
The Roundabout book fairs are always a great deal for you and your family, but this particular one should also warm your heart knowing exactly where all the proceeds will go and specifically who they will help.
What are the ways you can help Xiao Yan, or others that Roundabout supports?
*Come to the book fair and buy, buy, buy!
*Share the goal about helping this young girl — not everyone is as connected as you are, so let them know about the book fair event!
*Consider offering your time to help at the book fair itself or at the Roundabout Charity Distribution Store, which always accepts volunteer assistance.
*Donate directly by contacting Leslie at Roundabout (137 1877 7761)
