You know what is amazing about KAS? So much cool and awesome stuff happens on a regular basis! Take this Valentine’s Day, for example. The Invisible Children’s Club organized an amazing fundraising initiative: selling heart-shaped balloons!
The great work of the Invisible Children’s Club comes with their collaboration with World Vision. There are around 40 club members that rallied together and with all the passion in their hearts and minds, sold over 2,000 balloons. So not only did lovers around Kaohsiung get a lovely Valentine’s Day present, but they also helped contribute towards the greater good in this world. This year’s fundraising efforts in particular will go to children in Cambodia. Standard of living varies widely in Cambodia, meaning that particularly in rural areas, the lack of access to basic education leaves a lot of children without necessary basic and life skills. The funds raised from the KAS Invisible Children’s Club will greatly contribute to programs providing basic education for children in rural Cambodia.
World Vision Taiwan has a great track record in Taiwan, bringing together donations from all different kinds of civil society and student groups. As contributing members to the Kaohsiung community, we are so pleased to see the continued collaboration between our students and World Vision. At KAS, we strongly believe that by being aware of the world around us, of things we can and can’t see, we become more compassionate global citizens. It is through student-led initiatives like these that we see the importance of global citizenship, and the impact it can have not only on local community but community on an international scale as well.
To date, almost twenty articles have appeared online regarding the great work that the Invisible Children’s Club has done! It’s very exciting to see that such great work is being showcased in this way, we are so proud of you! We were asked to give a special mention to Prudence, the President of Invisible Children’s Club, for making this event become a reality! Well done Prudence!
