CNY Celebration for Volunteers & Members

Sheau Yuan reminded me to attend their CNY celebration organised by each branch of the charity foundation nearby our neighbourhood. Some vegetarian food, dessert & mandarin orange were prepared for us.

Some drama act from the volunteers were performed. Video & CNY speeches from the foundation founder was shown too. Then we were given this special coin. It was same size as NT$ 50 cents which had a special meaning to the history of the foundation. The founder actually spent her books copyright royalties to make these coins. We were required to randomly pick up a rolled paper - JingSi note. My note was "Always strive to learn & upgrade, do not drag our feet".

Finally we were given Bodhi leaves to write down our New Year resolution and dropped them into their basket before leaving:

Short story of the NT$ 50 cents:
In 1966, with the support of 30 housewives who donate NT$ 50 cents a day to establish a charity fund, the founder started this charity foundation in Taiwan. With that, it is now spread into five continents across the world.
