TAS took part in the spirit of generosity this past Monday during their annual Flea Market. During this market we saw students coming together in order to sell their products they have and made as a class in order to help others. The flea market does not only teach students business skills but generosity as well because all of the money raised will be donated to charity. Students at TAS recognize that their hard work and efforts were vital in raising money to help others.
Our middle school students voted on which charity the funds would be donated to and they have decided to give to The Shanghai Healing Home (SHH). SHH is a non-profit foster home assisting local Chinese Children’s Welfare Institutes by providing pre and post-surgical care to abandoned Chinese orphan babies born with surgically correctable deformities. SHH provides a home-like environment for the babies in order to meet their physical, emotional, and developmental needs. This year our students were able to raise 70,000 RMB for SHH. We are so proud of our students’ hard work which will changes babies lives forever!
