Starting October 4th, the Rickshaw Dumpling Trucks will be running “Dumplings for Difference”. This will be a charitable competition amongst our customers for who can cash in the most gift cards at donorschoose.org during the month.

Donors Choose is an amazing organization that connects donors with classrooms in need.
Public school teachers from every corner of America post classroom project requests on DonorsChoose.org. Requests range from pencils for a poetry writing unit, to violins for a school recital, to microscope slides for a biology class.
Then, you can browse project requests and give any amount to the one that inspires you. Once a project reaches its funding goal, we deliver the materials to the school.
Below is a great video that goes in depth about DonorsChoose and you get to see Zac Efron!
This is a great way for everyone to get involved in making the future better and brighter for the younger generation. Not only that, but you get to stuff yourself with dumplings! What a combo – helping kids in the classroom and delicious dumplings!!
