In an entirely student-led initiative, Grace Xie, Chair of the student Charity Committee, liaised with the hospital and together with the committee decided upon what gifts to take with them. It was lovely to see faces light up when the children and families on the ward were greeted with gifts. The students absolutely loved the opportunity to see the hospital associated with Hopeful Hearts. The school would like to recognise and thank Grace, Michelle, Kitty, Amy, Haerin and Lynn for their continuous dedication and support with various charitable initiatives.
Here is what our students had to say:
"Being able to meet them was a good experience and meaningful, because we know that the money that we donate actually goes to help the children. Also it gives us as charity leaders motivation to work harder to gather more donations for the children." -Grace/Haerin
"I was happy that I am committed to both charity and Hopeful Hearts, and it was worth the time being at the hospital" - Amy
"I mean, who wouldn't like seeing a baby smile?" - Lynn
"I enjoyed the whole trip. I was really happy to see that the children were well cared for and that the parents all had smiles on their faces. The babies were soooooooo cute. It was good to visit the hospital I can feel that it is full of love and hope!" - Kitty
As a school we have currently raised 200,669 RMB a link to the 2016/17 Charity Report can be found below. Let’s continue to work together to help keep young hearts beating!
