Friends of Blessing Hands will be selling jewelry, baked goods, and cakes for the benefit of the Wei Senbao's medical fund and other Blessing Hands projects at this festival. 

Last year a special friend of Blessing Hands won the moon cake contest and gave the prize money to Wei Senbao.
She was able to meet him this summer when her family traveled to China. This
year she is taking orders for moon cakes and has already raised $600 for Wei. It is very time consuming to make moon cakes so that might be her limit. 

You can give to Blessing Hands right on your computer at this link. 

Look forward to seeing everyone and enjoying the moon. Come by our table and pick up some of our new brochures and newsletters to share with your friends.
