HÀ NỘI — A group of high school students named Scribbles hosted a fashion show and musical performance to raise funds for orphans over the weekend.

“The event aims to spread a message about children through art in a unique and fresh way,” said Nguyễn Dương Lan Nhi, one of the organisers.

The proceeds from tickets are being used to help disadvantaged patients at the National Children’s Hospital.

Họa Tâm (Painting & Soul) features a catwalk show and musical performances by high school students.

Scribbles was launched in 2015 by students of Hanoi-Amsterdam high school, aiming to support the development of children. It has hosted various events on painting, history and traditional culture for kids from both cities and rural areas.

In 2016, the group cooperated with the National History Museum to organise a fair to relive the image of Hà Nội in 1945-1954. In 2017, it held a camp themed Scribbles’ Camp: The Return Ticket, giving more than 40 kids the chance to learn about Vietnamese traditional culture. In January 2018, it put on a musical event at two centres for autistic kids. In February, it organised a cultural fair to help participants learn about Vietnamese Lunar New Year. — VNS
