On February 3rd, the New Year Charity Auction “Tomorrow would be a better day” was successfully held in Lu Gu Auto Mall.
This event was organized by Changsha WES academy in collaboration with Wispring Education Development Foundation and Desenhome. Since the beginning, it has attracted many caring students, parents and teachers.
The Charity Auction started at 2 PM. The music studio Yintaoyue brought an exciting drum performance to warm up the audience. Then, Ms. Sabrina and Mr. David gave a brief introduction of the event, expressing our intention of helping create a better learning environment for children in need.
The auction items were divided into two parts, some sold by English auction and the others by sealed-bid auction. The audience raised their hand frequently. The art pieces were sold one after one to much applause and cheers. Some of the artworks from students are not as mature or valuable as those of famous artists, however, their sincerity is evident and love is priceless.
This event can’t succeed without efforts of our Art team – Ms. Jaffray, Mr. Mark and Ms. Bonnie. They’ve contributed a lot in organizing the auction and preparing the venue. Moreover, each of them offered an artwork as an auction item. Thank you!
In the end, we raised more than 20,000 RMB. 80% of the funds raised goes to Hunan Wispring Education Development Foundation to help create education opportunities for children in poor areas. 20% of the donations will be handled by the Art Department of school to help students accomplish more artworks. The Foundation will release later the flow and use of the funds.
At the auction, the WES Voice, a project provided by Changsha WES Academy collaborately with Hunan Discourse & Eloquence Association and Tryer, was launched. WESers and children that WEDF has been helping could benefit from the discourse sessions for free.
In the course of pursuing the True, the Good and the Beautiful, Changsha WES Academy wish to pass the message of love to the world together with every student, parent and teacher. Tomorrow would be a better day.
