Why Go to China in November?
I got to visit our high school students in Qinzhou 钦州, Du'an 都安, Lingchuan 灵川, Yangshuo 阳朔, and Chibi 赤壁 during my November China trip. We opened two new high schools.
We are asking donors to give online to our @GoodGiving Challenge before December 31st. This will help us add 35 new high school students. You can give securely online at this link if you are not in China.
It was great to meet all the 160 Qinzhou 钦州 students in person. Click to see more pictures.

"It brings me joy. It's my pleasure. I'm just so grateful that Blessing Hands is a charity I can really advocate sincerely. I've been burned and disappointed many times in China. Just keep doing your good work, and we'll help as best we can."
"Students took pledges for the number of laps they could run in 30 minutes. They raised over $11,700. Kids love to run and it's as simple as signing up donors. Most donors gave 1 kwai (15 cents) per lap. It added up quickly." The quote is from Judy Frohnaple, the faculty adviser to the charity prefects raising money for us at Shanghai United International School. Help us match their gift!

Volunteers enjoyed giving out candy and seeing the computers being used by the children. They need computer tables and desks in classrooms.
Originally, I was planing to use this money to buy a bag for myself since I have been wanting a bag for a while. But today I saw Luo Jia's post, and thought this money can be better used if it goes to the less fortunate people.
I am a mother and housewife that loves China and children. The two interests
have come together in serving the children of China who need help with
educational needs. I started as a teacher in an English summer camp and got to
know the teachers first. When I toured their schools and met their precious
students, I could see many needs and decided to try to help. I first started a
fund to assist children with tuition, but it has expanded into a 501(c)(3)public
charity granting money for textbooks and school supplies for primary school and
lower middle school students and tuition for older students.
