Thanks For a Great Party!

We’re very proud to tell you that the 11th Annual Shanghai Mamas Family Day Celebration held at YCIS on November 19th was a huge success! The event received rave reviews from families who came out by the hundreds to celebrate our vibrant community over music, food, activities and games. We hoped to be able to bring families together to celebrate our diversity in a fun, open and friendly environment, and with the help of our generous sponsors, we were able to achieve just that.

Shanghai Mamas could not continue it’s important work without the collective efforts of a caring community. We’d like to say a big thank you to all the families who attended our event despite the unforeseen last minute change in date. Thank you to all our amazing members who purchased raffle tickets, and bid on our fantastic Princess Cruise to Japan. We congratulate our winner Kimberly, pictured above, who will be enjoying an unforgettable Christmas with her family aboard the Majestic Princess. Thank you as well to Princess Cruises and Shanghai Travel International Ltd. for giving us this incredible cruise package valued at 16,000 RMB.

Shanghai Mamas wouldn’t be who we are without the unwavering support of our dedicated volunteers. Every year they give up their time and energy, before, during, and after the event to help make it a huge success. We celebrate their tireless energy and enthusiasm, they are truly the heart and soul of Shanghai Mamas. We couldn’t have done it without you!

On behalf of the entire Shanghai Mamas team, we would also like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to all our sponsors for their commitment to our organization. Without the support of our sponsors, we would be unable to raise the needed funds to host this and other events, or raise the necessary funds to cover our yearly operating costs. Due to the generosity of our sponsors, Shanghai Mamas has been able to raise enough money to cover our 2018 running costs that will keep our community sustained for another year. It is because of their continued support and ongoing generosity that we are also able to continue providing international families with a supportive online community that has become an invaluable resource over the past 11 years. A full list of our sponsors is below. Please remember that these organizations are keeping our community sustained, so if you do use their services or buy their products, please be sure to tell them that you are a Shanghai Mama and thank them for their support. And if you were lucky to win one of our fabulous raffle prizes, please claim your prize and spread the word about the services or products you’ve enjoyed – don’t let those vouchers and coupons languish in a corner! As we continue to grow and thrive as a community, our partnerships and relationships with our sponsors will remain a vital part of our success.

On Behalf of Shanghai Mamas we thank them for their ongoing commitment to international families in Shanghai. We’ve many, many sponsors to thank, so here goes:
