Heifer "Shake to Feed" 2013-14
Shake to Feed Dance Competition


Heifer Hong Kong is wholeheartedly committed to encouraging local students to help others rely on themselves. This year, for the first time, a "Move to Help, Shake to Feed" Dance Competition will be held. Using dance, students can not only raise money to help farmers break out of poverty but are also encouraged to do more exercise and to strengthen their bodies while learning to care for and aid others.

To inspire more youth to enter the "Move to Help, Shake to Feed" Dance Competition, opportunities will also be given to dance lovers to perform at the event. It is through the theme of "Health and Love", that Heifer Hong Kong is holding this competition. The details are as follows:
