THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT. We have raised enough with matching gifts to support 3 orphans' medical needs.

via Crowdrise 2 years ago

THE STORY:

In August 2009, I spent one of the best time off of work by volunteering 2 weeks at a Chinese Social Welfare Institute (aka orphanage) to help abandoned and orphaned children.  China's one child policy and preference for boys means that hundrerds of thousands of children are abandoned every year.

That trip changed my life forever.  I would like to share with you a Chinese parable:

One day an elephant saw a hummingbird lying on its back with its tiny feet up in the air. "What are you doing?" asked the elephant. The hummingbird replied, "I heard that the sky might fall today, and so I am ready to help hold it up, should it fall." The elephant laughed cruelly. "Do you really think," he said, "that those tiny feet could help hold up the sky?" The hummingbird kept his feet up in the air, intent on his purpose, as he replied, "Not alone. But each must do what he can. And this is what I can do."

So whether you can donate a little or a lot, in some way you are making a difference in the life of someone else.   I am doing what I can to improve the lives of others.

1 Child Sponsorship for a year - $600
1 Month Nanny Care - $100
Shelf of Books - $25

My bowling efforts are to raise funds for the orphans in China under the care of Half The Sky Foundation. Specifically to raise $3600 which is medical sponsorships for 3 sick orphans in the China Care center in Beijing which handles all the worst medical cases from all the centers.

The prize drawing (done by my daughter Jacqueline Kwan) are as follows:
1. Bobby & Grace Liu - Signed autograph photo of Victor Cruz (#80 NY Giants) catching recent Superbowl touchdown.

2. Chris & Jen Giacoppo - bottle of wine

3. I actually have 3 "Mei Mei" photo books and decided to award not just 1 but all 3 of these books:
     Tom Eng & Cait Crawford
     Jim Smith
     Thomas Poon

Remember the Company Matching Programs to double your giving.
