Yesterday, our family was activated for Comchest Fudai 2019. Kids were kept 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.
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 🙂
Our previous Fudai experiences captured here.
Families might be keen to contribute more to charity with kids. I have list some of our (old and new) volunteering experiences below.
