Meet this year's TFISH interns! We had our first meet up at the home office. They all had awesome ideas on how to make their communities and the world a better place and we are so excited to help them reach their goals. We left the meeting full of inspiration (and boba tea!) and ended the day of course, with a mini-photo shoot.
It was tons of fun, but don't be fooled - our interns are some of the most passionate and hard-working young people you will ever meet. We are so lucky to have them aboard the TFISH team!
June 8th 2014, LOS ALTOS, CA -- New Heart Benefit Concert was held last week at the Foothill Covenant Church to raise money for congenital heart surgeries in rural China. TFISH intern Lauren Kam and her family spent weeks preparing for this event. Lauren went out to local businesses for sponsorships. Her sisters Beth and Emily created handmade gifts for donors. Her mother and father spent the day decorating and setting up the auditorium. Young volunteers dedicated their time and energy to play for the concert. From the program pamphlets to the desserts at reception, every detail was created with care.
The benefit was a heart-warming success. In such a short amount of time, Lauren was able to raise $4,445. However, she is still hoping to reach the $6,000 mark to fund 3 surgeries. All proceeds are going towards the non-profit Little Red Scarf, a medical program of Transparent Fish Fund. Donations will go directly to recipient surgery and health care fees. Lauren will be personally making a trip to Gansu this summer to visit the patients in the Little Red Scarf hospital.
