Give to the Max Day and Prize Incentives Update 


Thank you for your continued support of Bei Dou Xing’s largest fundraiser, Give to the Max Day, on November 17th. Through generous contributions from parents and the community, and in honor of XinXing’s 10th anniversary, we raised just over $22,000, including a $1,000 prize for GiveMN.org’s small leader board contest.  Proceeds from Give to the Max Day support Bei Dou Xing’s Cultural, Laoshi (Teacher) and General Funds.  Missed Give to the Max Day and still want to contribute?  Go to givemn.org/organization/bei-dou-xing and make a tax-deductible contribution any time.  Thank you!
