OVER VND 100 MILLION RAISED BY EZ LAND TO HELP VULNERABLE CHILDREN GET BACK TO SCHOOL
After roughly a month of logging steps and raising funds, the EZ Land Team has officially claimed 2nd place in Saigon Children's Charity (SCC)’s “THE VIRTUAL STEPS CHALLENGE 2020” with a total of 8,657,038 steps. The Top 5 also includes ANZ Vietnam, HK Land Hanoi, Guardian Vietnam, and Pizza Hut VN.
Attracting almost 800 participants, the campaign has raised VND 391,084,460.68 as of June 2nd, 2020. All proceeds will go toward identifying risk factors in and assessing the needs of each child that SCC is helping out, thus providing the children with practical support so that they can resume their studies as soon as possible. Thanks to the awesome team spirit, EZ Land has raised over VND 100 million for the campaign, helping vulnerable children get back to school and bringing better educational opportunities to them. The donation also assists SCC in easing the financial burden for the kids’ families as the COVID-19 pandemic has left many of them struggling.
The Virtual Steps Challenge is known to be one of SCC’s annual fundraising events. Last year, the event aimed to raise people's awareness of autism and raise funds to help autistic children. The challenge attracted thousands of online participants and over 1000 people attending the event. It also logged around 200 million steps and raised over VND 700 million to train experts and offer the kids immediate help.
