Charity contains a broad heart in two words.
My elder regarded the charity as his own business after he graduated from university. I get to know his WeChat moments that he organizes the blind to listen to film today, held lectures on AIDS in the university yesterday and sent hot water for migrant workers at the railway station last year. His words express full passion of charity. He told me that he regarded charity as a part of his life. Once I said to him: I really wanted to work for charity, but I thought it should be considered by the rich. He said that’s because I don’t understand the connotation of the charity.
The first "charity day" activity was held in McCormick (Wuhan) Food co., Ltd on March 11, 2015 which is aimed at raising money to help some needed individuals and groups so as to serve the community. I felt honored as a volunteer to participate in the activities of the whole charity day, Charity day is divided into two parts: "delicacy charity bazaar" and "charity auction".
On that day, our cooking team started early to prepare six courses, fruit salad, red bean rice balls, stir-fry lotus root silk, dumplings, chicken wings with Thailand style and the spiced food. All food preparation was done by colleagues themselves,. About half past ten transfer team sent food to pantry. Until everything was in good order, our supply team cried out to attract the employees. Within an only few minutes, food was sold out.
The heated atmosphere continued to the charity auction in the afternoon. All the auction items were donated by Shanghai, Guangzhou and Wuhan colleagues. Our colleagues who were outside office can watch live broadcasting through video communication technology. Everyone bided for their favorite items thus charity day activities pushed to a new high.
In charity activities, we raised RMB 13,137.5 through food bazaar, and received 67 donated items from 85 employees and teams which finally sold RMB 66,750 through charity auction. So we totally raised RMB 79,887,5 from employee, by matching the same amount from company, the total amount of charity fund we raised in 2015 Wuhan Charity day is RMB 15,9775. So far, the activities have come to a perfect ending and it has been the first time that I felt how strong the enterprise’s charity heart is. Charity footprints have been covered with the every activity. I also look forward to the upcoming charity fund assistance program.
So I hope to participate in the following Charity day as volunteer again, to enjoy the satisfaction in dedication and the smile of kindness, because you will gain more with a hot heart and great courage to practice in charity.
