In Changzhou city, Jiangsu province, with the principles of “serve the society, dedicate love, help others and delight ourselves, Changzhou Volunteers Association actively promotes volunteerism around the city.
Dear Mr. & Mrs. Chao, and Transparent Fish Fund,
The Changzhou Volunteer Association would like to thank you all for providing us with funding and support! We are a non-profit organization that provides volunteer services, organizes community service activities, advocates for dedication, friendship, and social awareness. We seek to improve the living quality of the people, improve the social climate and promote a love and passion for social service as well as the spirit of helping others. Thank you for helping us fulfill our goals.
In August, many students entered our school, but because of the financial situations of families that live in Jintan Mao Shan Xue Peng Shan village, there are many children that have difficult family situations. Changzhou Student Volunteer Association president Jing Hua and bureau director Li Peng represented the volunteer association, worked together with the Cultural Exchange Center, and went to the Punta mountain village to participate in activities that promoted education and kindness. Wonderful people donated many books to them, and they supported ten children by donating a total of 10,000 books. We believe that the children are the flowers of the motherland; they are tomorrow's sunrise. Poverty should never prevent them from reaching their dreams and aspirations. To us, a scholarship may only be able to buy us a meal for the day, but for them it can make a big difference and help them reach their dreams. We wish them all a bright future!
Story 2: Respecting and caring for the elderly has always been a cherished value of our country; it is a spirit that has been fostered from generation to generation. On this day of the Moon Festival, the workers and volunteers from the city of Changzhou Volunteer Association came to this nursing home and celebrated the festival with the elders. The volunteers played the flute and Guzheng for them, and performed traditional Chinese musical pieces. They even brought them boxes of various flavored moon cake along with their blessings. We believe that the elderly are society's treasure and wealth. Let us be thankful towards their contributions and help create a better living atmosphere for them!
Story 3: In 2013, the Changzhou Volunteer Association helped may people step up to a new platform and reach a new potential. We have kept our pledge towards transparency, keeping detailed records of all our donations on our website. Furthermore, each and every donation sum will appear on the website in account for the donors. Thanks to you, Changzhou Volunteer Association has built a bridge between the donors and the recipients of the donations; these children now know that people care about them and wish them well, and they will be encouraged to help others who are in need. We hope that we can continue to work with Transparent Fish Fund to write another chapter of our stories and not only help those in need but also motivate the rest of society to take action.
We thank you again for providing us with financial support and encouragement, and for enhancing our philosophy of public service! Best of luck for future work!
Changzhou Volunteer Association
