Vancouver's Anh and Chi community raises $6320 for local charities!

Since our first-ever reservation was taken in early October, guests choosing to forgo the walk-in waitlist by donating to a local charity of their choice, have raised a total of $6320 in two short months.

You have made an impact on three local charities (see below).

Our goal with Reservation-by-Donation is to provide some financial support to charities that are helping our community’s most marginalized folks to survive and thrive in a very difficult year.

As we look to 2021 and beyond, we want to enlist your help in building on the initial success of this initiative in the years to come! 


$2870 donated
Directions Youth Services
 Directions Youth Services helps nearly 1000 local Vancouver youth per year find safety from the streets, eat hot meals, receive medical care, find long-term housing, access detox services, and much, much more. Your donations directly empower Vancouver’s most vulnerable youth to take steps towards building the future they want for themselves. 

$1970 donated
David Suzuki Foundation
 The David Suzuki Foundation encourages everyday Canadians to take action in our local communities to resolve the environmental challenges we all collectively face. Your generous donations over the last two months have local, national, and global reach, currently including: the Green and Just Recovery, Sustainable Transportation, and the Youth Climate Lawsuit.

$1480 donated
Immigrant Services Society of BC
Immigrant Services Society of BC has been helping immigrants and refugees get settled, learn English, find work, and explore entrepreneurship upon arrival to Canada for nearly 50 years. Your donations contribute to the 20,000+ people a year that are helped for free by ISSBC’s dedicated staff, volunteers, and community partners. Thank you for creating an inclusive British Columbia.
Help us choose our next charities! 

As we consider you, an extension of our family, let us know which local charities you would like to support through Reservation-by-Donation.

We’ll leave the nominations up to you from now until 11:59 pm December 26th and then open up a vote for the three next charities to our followers on Instagram from December 27th -January 1st. Selected charities will be announced on January 4th, 2021.

Email with a charity that you hold dear and what impact they’ve had on your life or in your community. 

Happy Holidays from our family to yours!
