On Saturday October 22nd our Asian colleagues will hold their second Omnicom Cares Charity soccer tournament in Shanghai. Eight teams will be participating from Omnicom agencies as well as some clients. It looks like a fun and worthwhile afternoon of sports and collaboration.
Whilst you may not be able to attend in person please consider a donation to the cause – Braille Without Borders – a charitable organization that has done inspiring work helping establish a rehabilitation and training centre for blind people in Tibet as well as The International Institute for Social Entrepreneurs (IISE) in Kerala, India, a ‘dream factory’ where disadvantaged individuals from all over the world are trained to create social change back in their home countries. The team is looking to raise a minimum of 60,000RMB (US$10,000) to fund a scholarship to send an individual from China to the IISE.
Any donation however small will be very welcome. You can donate via PayPal via this link http://www.braillewithoutborders.org/ENGLISH/support.html
