On September 17, the last day of the Mid-Autumn Festival holiday, the second "Love and Hope" themed children's art exhibition and auction for Kidnewer, sponsored by SSCLF and Jinshan District Women's Federation, and supported by Shanghai Wind Art Experience Museum, was held at the atrium of Wanda Plaza in Jinshan district, Shanghai. A total of 88,000 yuan was raised at the charity auction. Yang Mengxin, a girl with kidney disease from Jinshan district also attended the auction.
On September 10, the Children's Art Exhibition opened with one hundred pieces of paintings on display from Shanghai and Beijing children painters. They use their brushes to paint their "love and hope" for kidnewer. On the last day of the exhibition, the organizers held an auction for charity sales of 100 painting works, to raise money for the children with uremia and renal transplantation. Some kind-hearted people donated the paintings they just bought at the auction, hoping to raise more money for Yang Mengxin and other children with uremia at Shanghai Pediatric Hospital.
