“Canuck Place encourages each child to ‘embrace life’ and believes in enhancing the quality of whatever time a child may have left by empowering them to live fully and joyfully.” – Canuck Place Children’s Hospice
I had the amazing opportunity to perform and to make an appearance at “Harmonies for Hope” – Key Club Of Vancouver Westside Benefit Concert for BC Children’s Hospital and Canuck Place Children’s Hospice on Sat. May 31, 2014 at Unitarian Church, Vancouver. Key Club raised over $20000, and all proceeds went to provide care for children with life-threatening illnesses.
The night was filled with performances presented and organized by youths, including instrument playing, speech-arts, bands, and dance pieces. To be able to motivate the audience to help children in becoming healthy once again was my objective for the night, and I was glad when more people donated and made a difference.
Overall, the night made me feel accomplished for three main reasons:
I would like to give a big thank you to Key Club of Vancouver Westside and next year’s president, Davis Zhu, for having me there to support our Vancouver youth in changing lives of other youth. I am extremely happy that everyone had a good time, enjoying life to the fullest and flourishing in their talents. With that I have to thank our parents for their tremendous love and care. I would also like to thank Canuck Place Children’s Hospice and BC Children’s Hospital for providing countless life-saving, medical and financial support to families. I encourage you all to donate your time or money, as a little goes a long way in creating a better future for children and also our friends. Thank you for all your wonderful support once again!
首先，非常感谢Key Club of Vancouver Westside和新任主席Davis Zhu给我这个机会，让我和我的朋友们在今天给大家带来欢乐！第二，感谢所有父母，没有你们的大力支持，我们就不会有这么美好的今天！另外，感谢BC儿童医院以Canuck Place儿童疗养院，是你们帮助了无数个孩子和家庭度过难关！最后，再次感谢大家的支持，请大家多多捐款，帮助那些需要帮助的孩子们！
