予人玫瑰，手留余香！感恩和慷慨是12月福州西湖國際學校的品格教育主題，因此，圣誕慈善活動也成了FLIS的傳統活動。我們很榮幸地宣布，2019年圣誕慈善活動的主題為Your Wishes，Our Wishes. 今年所有慈善活動籌集的資金都將全部捐贈給隱惠園。為此，FLIS的老師和孩子們一起，積極投入了巨大的熱忱，發揮自己的想象力和創造力，為我們呈現了形式多樣的藝術作品，包括繪畫，書法，陶藝，雕塑，花藝等等。在這個寒冷的冬季，他們希望盡微薄之力為隱惠園的孩子們送去來自社會的關懷和溫暖，幫助他們實現新年的“小小心愿”。
If we help others, we will also be blessed. Learning to be grateful and generous is the theme of FLIS character education in December. Christmas charity activities, therefore, have become a tradition in FLIS, also matching the theme of our 2019 Christmas activities: “Your wishes, our wishes”. This year all funds raised from the charity activities will be given to Hidden Treasures Home. Students and teachers of FLIS are working together, showing lots of enthusiasm and effort, as well as imagination and creativity, to present various artworks to us, including paintings, calligraphy, pottery, sculptures, and floriculture. In this bitter cold winter, they wish to do their best to give care and warmth to the children in Hidden Treasures Home, helping them to realize their simple wishes in the coming new year.
Founded in Minhou in 2005 by a kind and warm-hearted American couple, Michael and Deena, Hidden Treasures Home is dedicated to foster care service for special children. The couple believes that every child has the right to live with dignity, to be loved, and to find a family that takes good care of them. At present, there are 27 special needs children living in Hidden Treasures Home. Here, Michael and his wife have worked with a team of more than 70 Chinese employees and eight overseas volunteers to create a warm and loving home for these children.
Some of the peripheral products are now available for pre-sale! We selected some of the students' works of art (calligraphy, painting, sculpture, ceramics...) and arranged them into a beautiful desk calendar for 2020, and we’ve also used some as designs on creative canvas bags (also made by students) for you to choose from.
