Flag selling Day 2018
The foundation has always been dedicated to helping the needy through various charitable activities. Recently, we recruited many enthusiastic volunteers to sell flags for fund raising on Saturday(August 19th), hoping to help those in need.
Starting from 7 in the morning, the volunteers sold flags all over the New Territories, including Tuen Mun, Yuen Long, Tin Shui Wai, Sheung Shui, Fanling, Tai Po , Sha Tin, Tai Wai, Tseun Wan, Kwai Chung and Tseung Kwan O. The volunteers were not only from our foundation. Some of them were sent by Tuen Mun Women’s Association and Chung Sing Benevolent Society Mrs. Aw Boon Haw Secondary School. Among the volunteers we can easily find some parents with their small children as the parents hoped the kids develop a spirit of helping others. All the volunteers were so enthusiastic that even the intense heat of summer could not keep them away. All these committed volunteers hoped that every penny collected could accumulate to a large amount which gives great care to the needy. Among them there were many special guests, including Dr. Joyce Tsang, the Chairperson of the foundation, Dr. Francis Lee, the Chief Executive Officer, Miss Cory Pang, the Vice-Chairperson, as well as Miss Mandy Chu MH, Miss Carmen Sin and Miss Tammi Ma, the Directors. We also want to give heartfelt thanks to Miss Ip Shun Hing, BBS,MH, JP, the Chairperson of Tuen Mun Women’s Association and Miss Chan Sau Wan, the Vice-Chairperson of the association. Their participation made the activity even more significant and was considered as a great encouragement by the other volunteers. Their enthusiasm moved quite a lot of citizens, who then gave generously. Some citizens even approached them before they asked, giving them a pleasant surprise.
When the activity came to an end at twelve thirty, all the volunteers had already enjoyed it. No matter how much they have collected, they had had a big haul for all of them found pleasure in this meaningful event. We would organize more charitable activities in the future so that more people could feel the pleasure of helping others and in turn let the others to feel the pleasure of being helped.
