__Children of Promise: Little Sapling is a non-government organization that serves in the rehabilitation of children with disabilities. They see the these children as young seedlings that, although requiring extra good care, can grow into trees of wisdom. The following is a brief story of how one of Little Sapling's workers got involved in the organization.
In the Fujian Province, Hunag Sheng Xing works at the CP Little Sapling's Family Support Center, where he teaches autistic children. Years ago, an accident occurred in which Huang Sheng Xing became paralyzed from the waist down, forcing him to rely on family members to take care of his every need. He even considered committing suicide. Last year, his parents brought him to a center where other disabled children resided. Through interacting with others in his situation and receiving treatment, today, he not only can take care of himself, but also encourage other handicapped people to "stand up." Experts point out that creating such community of disabled people allows them to find self-worth and care for each other so that they no longer feel alone or hopeless.

On November 12, 2011, volunteers from Little Sapling zestfully prepared for Happy Gathering Day. Although only four children were coming due to the outpour of rain and dismal weather, the volunteers still decided to hold a party for the few who were attending.
The party began with a surprising but exciting introduction of the kids to the compere, who was dressed as the cartoon character Arale. With Momoko Dancers (other popular cartoons in China) and the volunteers, Arale performed entertaining dances, in which he invited two children to join him on stage. The two girls were smart and determined to work hard to learn the dance.
