You are going to experience our DREAM. A dream want to contribute to end poverty and poverty.
How to achieve your dream• Do you have a dream?• Which step of dreams you are now?• How many your dreams have been come true?
Step One: Discover• Make a choice Members of Academy choose their own Millennium Development Goal at the fall every year. I chose the first goal, ending poverty and hunger at the same time last year.
Why do I choose ending poverty and hunger?Poverty and hunger are abasic and criticalproblem in China andchildren, who are thefuture of the country, arethe most at-risk segmentof the population.
Poverty & Hunger• The kitchen inthe primary schoolTong Shu Zhuangin Lunshan, Henanprovince.• Bricks on theground.• Even no facilityto cook.
Step Two: Describe• Have a voiceI announced I support the goal ofending poverty and hunger almostevery class in the WAFW, hope toappeal more and more members tofight for this together.
Step Three: Develop• Take action• Time flies, it was time for Academy members to do a real project without notice.• We started to present our thoughts on the paper as an abstract.
Writing an abstract is a startI am thankful for therewere many professionalpersons guide me towrite down my ideas as aformal abstract always,like our facilitatorBridget and guest Judith.
Writing an abstract is a start• Who• Where• Why• What• When• How
Original Plan• I planed to raise money on the Honoring Women Awards Show during the Women Symposium in May.• The team members would give a short speech to call on the audiences to make donations. The minimum donation we would ask ￥3.00 per audience and try to raise a total of 7000 yuan.• 3 is one poor childrens charge for one lunch meal. The Opera House holds 1195 seats, if the theatre is full, it means we could collect 3585yuan, and Shawn Chen had promised he would match donation, add another 3585, its 7170 at least. It means we could offer the whole years lunches for 35 students.
Step Four: Decide• Build a TEAM.• Once you get a team, you can promote your project faster.• Because there are people help you!
Preparation• the PowerPoint on the breakout forum• 15 donation boxes• videos• HR details• and so on.NOTICE: Regular meeting is necessary
On the day to play full out• In the daytime, we had a breakout forum to reportwhat we were doing.• In the evening, we were going to implement thedonate.• However, bad news can show up anywhere andanytime, which you cannot predict.
On the day to play full out• Board office told me they canceled our donation without one reason unfortunately.• Its like a tragedy for everyone, isnt it?• We never thought of holding back, but we didnt get the chance to show up at last.
Step Five: Play Full Out• Though we lost thechance to show that onthe ceremony, we stilldo that on the breakoutforum.• We got money.• Students donated theirmoney to support thisproject and us, totally227.2RMB.
Time to Play Full Out• Are you disappointed?• Are you tired?• Is it enough when you get 227.2yuan?• Is there any idea or chance you get to seize?• Have you ever think about giving up?
Sparks of thought fly• I heard we would holda party on Sunday whichmost of you attended.• I knew we could do theproject on party!
All roads lead to Roma!• I gave a performance of kung fu to call on my friends on party to donate.• We got 524RMB that night.
Moving stories• Strangers stories• Love from America across the Pacific Ocean• Support from the Internet• ……
How much we donate• We got 1800yuan by the end of August and donated all the money to the NGO "Free Lunch for Children".• It means we offered 600 meals to the poor children who have no lunch in Henan province.
