Yesterday, our family was busy packing and delivering Comchest Fudai 福袋 (公益金 Community Chest). Mobilised once a year, Fudai campaign hopes to bring warmth and necessities to Comchest beneficiaries.
The tagline “送一个福袋, 献一份爱心” is both meaningful and practical. While we are helping others, our kids pickup empathy and charity spirit too.
For the first session, volunteers were activated to pack the goodies into Fudai (festive packs). This took up to 2 hours in the morning.
Half of our family was mobilised, and the other half joined us for the delivery segment.
Packing can be tiring for the little ones, but we try to enjoy the process. Kids would be heartened to know that their efforts will bring warmth and smile to someone else.
Family effort, every bit helps. It is always more meaningful to volunteer together as a family.
Some of the goodies found in the bag.
There are instructions to help us pack in order, this ensure that all items are accounted for and in sequence.
But I guess some folks are too enthusiastic and “anyhow” packed :p
Family effort, every bit helps. 有钱出钱,有力出力.
Thank you Community Chest for the invite. Always proud to see the kids contribute to a good cause 🙂

It was me and the boys last year but 2017 (link) is whole family affair 🙂
Comchest Fudai packing is a meaningful project. Besides charity and giving back to community, Fudai(福袋) packing activity offers a good bonding opportunity for families 🙂
Kids understand the importance of teamwork, as everyone need to chip in to get the work done. (Video Link)
At expo, volunteers gathered, we got thousands of bags to pack and deliver.
Everone man a different section, be it wrapping, conveyor belt (packing) and even garang-guni (flattening the cardboards :p ).
I did not count the number of bags, but I know we work FAST!
The bags are about 8 kg each, kudos to the little ones for dragging the bags into our car.
Final mile, delivering Fudai 福袋 to the less fortunate. We hope each bag will bring some smiles and warmth to families 🙂
I hope these positive actions will also let kids pick up empathy.
Good work kids! Proud of you guys 🙂
