We’ve been slingin’ juicy burgers into hungry faces in Vietnam for a while now and feel like it’s time to give something back…
So we’re really happy to announce that Chops will donate 10,000VND to Newborns Vietnam every time you enjoy our flagship burger ‘The Chop’.
But don’t stop with eating!
Newborns’ target is to raise $500,000 a year for training and to fund ambulances to bring sick babies safely to Hanoi – they need all the help they can get.
Here’s the other ways you can support the NGO in their mission to end preventable deaths among babies in Vietnam.
1. Become Ironman 70.3
No excuses: you’ve got plenty of time to turn your patties into six packs for this super-athlete challenge.
Set a fundraising target, raise the Newborns flag, do a few (hundred) laps around West Lake and turn up. You got this – we believe in you.
2. Cycle a Difference
We highly recommend keeping an eye out for future Cycle a Difference races.
It’s 419 km over three days of cycling through the tough but spectacular and incredibly rewarding Central Highlands terrain.
You can join as a company or personal team of two to four riders, and you’re asked to raise $6,000 per team.
3. Run with UPRACE
Utilising the wonders of modern tech, runners use the UPRACE app to track their distance and donate dong for every kilometre. Businesses can also be asked to match the amount raised by their runners or donate an amount per team.
Last year this added up to some pretty serious cheddar. It raised a total of 4 billion VND!
4. Bag yourself some merch
Newborns Vietnam teamed up with Regna, who donates 10% on their clothes.
Nab yourself fully customised team or individual sportswear to show the world you care.
5. Spend cash for the kids
The Give as you live scheme gives couch dwellers a chance to get involved too.
You can raise free funds when shopping online with retailers such as Amazon.
6. Do it yourself
Good at organising a big ol’ booze up, flogging cakes or testing people’s general knowledge?
Why not put on your own fundraising event. You could do a quiz night, coffee morning, sell sweet treats at your office, or something far more imaginative.
7. Run the streets
There’s still time to get involved in the Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City runs in December. If you want to run as a team, you’ll need to raise at least $2,000 for Newborns, but hey, the little ones can’t do it themselves, so get your running shoes on!
8. Destroy the Vietnam Mountain Marathon
It’s almost too late for this year’s scenic mega-run through Vietnam’s picturesque countryside. But keep it on your radar for the future. Supported by Topas Travel and Newborn’s partnership with the Lao Cai Provincial Health Department, this run lets you choose your distance – but remember, there are a few hills involved!
