A Concert of Love, DIY Fundraising

Do you know what DIY means? Every day we DIY although we don’t use this acronym very often. It means “Do It Yourself”. A medium or large size DIY project is not a cup of tea for everyone. Consider building a house all by yourself. If the DIY project is a large scale musical project, organized by a few high school teenagers, it becomes extraordinary!

We are thrilled to announce a DIY charity fundraising concert for Rainbow Missions organized by a few high school teenagers. These teenagers heard about the poor conditions and difficulties of people with disabilities and orphans in China. They know the needs are huge. They are inspired by the work Rainbow Missions is doing in China and their hearts are deeply touched. They want to do something for the needs in China. So they came up with the idea of a fundraising concert to help. They want to touch the hearts of the guests with the musical talent that God has given them. They want to open up the hearts and pockets of the guests while they are enjoying the music. The target fundraising amount for this event is 7,500.00. With the funding, Rainbow Missions can provide appropriate treatments, education for children with cerebral palsy and arrange professionals to provide suitable training and advice to the teachers and workers in China.

With the help of their parents, the teenagers have confirmed the venue, programs, promotions, guest registration and so on. This is the very first DIY function initiated by the supporters of Rainbow Missions in Seattle.  These teenagers are strongly in need of help from volunteers. Rainbow Missions only plays a subordinate role of introducing the organization and services provided at the concert.

It is worth mentioning that these talented teenagers have won different musical international awards. Angela got first prize in an international music competition. Robert is the winner of the Seattle International Piano Competition. Arthur, the youngest of them, got first prize at the Classic Vienna Festival. Alex is the champion of the 2016 Northwest Chopin Festival. Jonathan is the 1st prize at the 2016 Performing Arts Festival of the Eastside. It is a great performance that you will not want to miss! They will also share why they organize this fundraising activity.

If you are interested, please RSVP below. The teenagers are preparing and practicing for the concert. Your contribution and support at the concert are highly appreciated.

It is hope that more and more volunteers and supporters will take part in running various kinds of DIY charity functions in the days to come.  These can be walkathon, runathon, hikathon, sports or cycling, garage sale, talent shows, iron chefs or any creative ideas you can think of. Creative ideas and activities for helping those less fortunate children and orphans are always welcomed.

 

 

愛的音樂會, DIY 籌款

你知道DIY是什麼意思嗎?每天我們都DIY事情,只是我們不常用這個縮寫字,它是 Do It Yourself 『自己動手做』的縮寫。一些中型或大型DIY項目不是人人能做得來的,我們未必能自己一個人蓋一座房子。若這DIY項目是由幾位高中學生年青人來策劃主辦的大型音樂會,更絕不簡單。

我們隆重宣佈,將有一場由幾位高中學生年青人為彩虹工程而舉辦的DIY慈善籌款音樂會。這幾位高中生年青人聽聞中國國內殘障人士和孤兒的情況十分困難,他們知道需要很龐大,對彩虹工程在中國大陸所做的工作受到很大的啟發,他們的心深受感動,要為中國的需要做一些事。他們提出了以籌款音樂會的型式來幫助有需要的人。他們要用神給他們的音樂天賦和造藝來感動來賓的心,使來賓在欣賞音樂的同時打開他們的心和錢包,大解慳囊,共襄善舉。這次的籌款目標為7,500元,所收取的奉獻將用在腦癱孩童的治療、教育和讓彩虹工程安排專業人員前往中國,向當地教師和服務人員提供適當的培訓和建議。

這些年青人也得到他們父母的協助,安排了表演場地、節目、推廣、來賓登記和其他大小事務。這是彩虹工程在西雅圖第一次由支持者主動主辦的DIY項目,他們需要更多義工幫忙,彩虹工程只是協辦的角色,在音樂會中介紹我們的機構和服務。

值得一提的是這些有天賦的年青人曾取得很多國際音樂節的獎項。Angela拿取了國際音樂比賽的第一獎,Robert是西雅圖國際鋼琴比賽冠軍,最年青的一位Arthur得了古典維也納節的第一獎,Alex是2016年西北區蕭邦節的冠軍,Jonathan 拿取了2016年東區表演藝術節的第一獎。 我們怎能錯過這些精彩的表演呢!他們還會在音樂會會中分享他們為何要辦這籌款活動。

若你對本次音樂會感到興趣,請在我們的網站 登記留位 。這些年青人正在為這音樂會積極練習和籌備,我們感謝你們的支持和奉獻。

我們盼望將來有更多支持者和義工,願意舉辦不同類型的DIY慈善項目,它們可以是步行、跑步或行山籌款,球類或單車,車庫大賣場,天才表演,鐵廚師、或你能想像到任何有創意的活動,我們歡迎有創意的活動,來幫助中國的殘障孩童和孤兒。
