Today, May 12, 2010, we had a food sale. The money we raised will be donated to the SEAPC Touching Hearts charity. This month, they are sending a team of US doctors to treat around 130 children who need heart operations. Since Tibet is located in such a high altitude, heart problems are common among the local people. Being lack of resources and money, many patients need financial support for their operations.
We sold chicken chow mein, Italian soda, root beer, lemon soda, jellies, Yan-Yan, Hello Panda, M&M's, chocolate cupcakes, popsicles, nuts, and cream puffs. Chicken chow mein and Yan-Yan are the two most popular food items. In the end of the sale, we raised over $250.
We are also having a clothes drive for Sun Village, an orphanage in China, from now to the end of the semester. Peggy and Caitlin are going to bring donated clothes to the orphanage this summer.
