PROJECT GUIZHOU 2011 – EXPENDITURE LIST

Below are total expenses for the entire trip and balance will be carried forward for our annual project this year. And as usual, all travel expenses are forked out by our members themselves without touching on the raised funds and that all expenses were discussed with all participating members before coming to those decisions for expenditure.

GUIZHOU, HERE WE COME!

Project Guizhou team arrived in Shanghai after a 5+ hours flight from Singapore yesterday. After checking in hotel, we went straight to Metro megamart to buy goodies for the kids. We decided to up the budget a little more so that the kids have more to go around in their goodie bags.

After shopping, we head on to have our late dinner almost 10pm. We had a fabulous BBQ dinner by the roadside in the cold winter weather. Everyone loved the food!

Departing for Guizhou this morning… more updates soon. 🙂

Announcement Made!

Hey y’all,

Some news from one of our members about a lady using the name 爱心团 for fund raising in the name of charity in China. I found out personally as well many people are using that name as well. Hence I hereby announce that Care Givers Group will be known as 新加坡爱心团 with immediate effect, without causing any confusion or friction in our cause of charity works in the near future. 🙂

I’ve just remitted RMB$5000 yesterday to the principal of our beneficiary primary school for Project Guizhou, Project Toilet 2011, so that he will use that money to pay for the deposit for the builders for the toilet to start chopping down wood to dry and ultimately use them for the toilet. When he first told me about chopping trees down, I was like “WHAO… I hope you guys are planting back more trees for every tree you chop!” He reassured me that those guys are in the business of selling and exporting wood… their livelihood depends on it… hence planting back of trees is a MUST!

The principal also made an announcement recently to the students that CGG will be donating and building a new toilet for them and that we will be visiting them at the end of Dec. They were all so happy and excited they started moving the rocks and gravels to lay part of the foundation for the toilet’s waste bins below… things that they can help within their means. I was so touched by their actions and glad to know they are so excited about our whole visit as well! (see slideshow below)

All our participants from Singapore are also very excited about this trip, although only 7 of us vs 142 students, we hope we have more members who can commit their precious 5 annual leave days for these kids next year. While friends and relatives who cannot join us, please continue pray for our safety, pray for the kids, pray for the great teachers and principals who are so committed to their work and lastly, pray for the words that come out from our mouths which may inspire/encourage/touch those people whom we encounter with before, during and after the trip.

Thanks y’all and God bless. 🙂

Care always,

Big Roy
