    Expect to watch a good game of Soccer too

    .
    Hahaha. Of course... our CCC volunteers are;
    1. expected to watch a free game of Soccer (less important), and
    2. expected to volunteer themselves to help to collect money for the victims (more important).

    Goods Donation

    Thanks Chris.:)

    China Sichuan Earthquake Relief – Goods Donation

    As most of you probably heard from Medias around the world, China just had one of the worst earthquakes in recent history, measuring 8 on the Richter scale. Although the epicenter was in Sichuan (south east of China), the earthquake was felt as far away as Beijing (1,500 km away), Shanghai (1,700 km away), even in nearby countries.

    The estimated death toll is as high as 50,000, with tens and thousands missing or buried and left about 48,000 people homeless as towns turned in rubble. In the wake of this tragedy, a group of volunteers are partnering with Australian Red Cross in organizing a series of charity events to raise funds to assist earthquake sufferers, to help them get through this disaster and move onto the rebuilding of their homeland. Other charity events include a friendship soccer games, donation/information sites around Melbourne city and some others in the planning.

    The charity sale will be held at the same time/venue as the friendship soccer game. We will setup goods drop-off points to receive donation goods before the event; anything with market value is highly regarded. Small items are preferred, e.g. accessories, memorabilia, handmade artwork, books, etc. All proceeds from the sale will go towards Chinese Red Cross’ China Earthquake Appeal; Red Cross Officer will be present for the event to monitor and to collect money raised.

    Donation Drop-off points

    Time: 27/May/2008 – 29/May/2008 5:30pm – 8:30pm
    Venue: Federation Square (opposite Flinders station)

    Charity Sale
    Time: June 1st, 2008 2pm
    Venue: Melbourne Albert Park Bob Jane Stadium


    The worst moments often bring out the best in people and every little effort counts towards making the BIG difference. Please show your love, sympathy, generosity and support to all the WenChuan Earthquake victims and their family.

    China Sichuan WenChuan Earthquake Relief – Goods Donation

    .
    Thank you for the info LilyG. :):):)

    Here is an email sent to me... And it mad me cry.

    ====== * ====== start email ====== * ======

    There were so many touching stories from the WenChuan earthquake. I cried so many times watching the news coverage in the past week. But this forward from a friend has to rank as one of the most touching. As a salut to this mom, I have translated the original into English, so my non-Chinese-speaking friends could read it, and pass it around, too. It's a story that should not stay only within the Chinese community.

    Violet


    抢救人员发现她的时候,她已经死了,是被垮塌下来的房子压死的,透过那一堆废墟的的间隙可以看到她死亡的姿势,

    When rescuers found her, she was already dead, crushed by the collapsed house. Through gaps in the rubbles, they could see her posture.

    双膝跪着,整个上身向前匍匐着,双手扶着地支撑着身体,有些象古人行跪拜礼,只是身体被压的变形了,看上去有些诡异。

    Kneeling on both knees, her entire upper body bent forward, held up by her two hands pressed against the ground, as if performing the ceremonial bow in an ancient ritual. Except, her body had been compressed out of shape and looked somewhat eerie.

    救援人员从废墟的空隙伸手进去确认了她已经死亡,又在冲着废墟喊了几声,用撬棍在在砖头上敲了几下,里面没有任何回应。

    A rescuer extended his hand through a gap and confirmed her death. He called out to her, and tapped on the bricks with his shaft, but received no response.

    当人群走到下一个建筑物的时候,救援队长忽然往回跑,边跑变喊"快过来"。他又来到她的尸体前,费力的把手伸进女人的身子底下摸索,

    As the team walked toward next building, the squad leader suddenly turned back, yelling as he ran, "Come quick!" He came to her remain, labored to maneuver his hand under her body, searching.

    他摸了几下高声的喊"有人,有个孩子,还活着"。

    He called out following some rummaging, "There's someone, a child, still alive."

    经过一番努力,人们小心的把挡着她的废墟清理开,在她的身体下面躺着她的孩子,包在一个红色带黄花的小被子里,大概有3、4个月大,

    With some effort, rescuers carefully removed the debris burying her, found her child lying beneath her, bundled in a little red blanket decorated with yellow flower prints. He was about 3-4 months old.

    因为母亲身体庇护着,他毫发未伤,抱出来的时候,他还安静的睡着,他熟睡的脸让所有在场的人感到很温暖。

    Shielded by his mother's body , he was totally unharmed, sleeping peacefully as he was brought out. His soundly asleep face warmed the hearts of all rescuers on the scene.

    随行的医生过来解开被子准备做些检查,发现有一部手机塞在被子里,医生下意识的看了下手机屏幕,发现屏幕上是一条已经写好的短信

    As the rescue team's doctor unbundled the blanket to examine the baby, he discovered a mobile phone tucked into the blanket. He subconsciously looked at the display, found there was a SMS message.

    "亲爱的宝贝,如果你能活着,一定要记住我爱你",看惯了生离死别的医生却在这一刻落泪了,手机传递着,每个看到短信的人都落泪了。

    "My Dear Baby, If you were to stay alive, you must remember that I love you." No stranger to the pain and sorrow brought by death, the doctor nonetheless wept at this moment. The cell phone was passed around, every person who read the message wept.

    Yes Pepsii... We cry with them. And perhaps, donate some charities from our hearts.

    No, I do not know who made this presentation. My cousin sent it to me. She probably got it from her many friends from Shanghai.

    Btw, I have pinned up the Charity Game poster at the Indoor Soccer Stadium at Albert Park.
