Global Giving, the club dedicated to raising money with the Renewal Foundation for rebuilding schools in China, according to Annie Tang, club president and junior, has nearly achieved its total fundraising target.

“The members are just going to continue to raise money,” said club sponsor Ryan Ringenberg.

The members are continuing to receive online donations and plan to set a booth at Houndstock.

“We’ll sell baked goods and maybe have some type of game to raise money,” said Tang.

In addition to online donations and a booth, the members plan to hold a bake sale at the local Chinese school along with a presentation to raise awareness. Also, they are planning to perform a dragon dance for the ICCI and are trying to get volunteers.

According to Ringenberg, the group will take a trip to Chinatown in Chicago on May 16 to celebrate their success.

“We have the date set. We just need to know the number of people that will be able to go and getting a bus,” said Tang.

For the next school year, Global Giving will continue its mission to fundraise money for some type of educational development, according to Ringenberg.

“We might continue with the Chinese schools or look at other areas depending on how well we do. We’ll probably decide that later on,” said Tang.

Not only is the group planning its goals for next year, but it has already begun to reach out in an attempt to attract more members by having booths at events like Frosh Rock.
