“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.

I am with Timothy Sayson (left), the 2013 President of Key Club of Vancouver Westside, and Davis Zhu (right), the 2014 President of Key Club of Vancouver Westside.

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:

  1. More children’s lives could be saved with the night’s proceeds.
  2. More people were aware of the difficulties that some people in the world face, and more people decided to take action in giving hope to these families.
  3. More friends were made, as we all believed in the same cause, and worked for the same goals.

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!

Chinese version:

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儿童医院以及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!
