All raised money will be contributed to organize the Middle Autumn Fistival  for over two hundred disadvantaged kids from the six orphanages which this Charity Project sponsors for.  

At the end of the project, at the Mid-Autumn festival, RMIT Viet Nam Business Club and the New Day team from Foreign Trade University will hold a Mid Autumn Celebration for two hundred disadvantaged kids from six orphanages on October 6.
