Overview

JCI The Port hosted the “Let Love Sprout, Make Dreams Real Plan” event on the 7th of May. Through the bids of wish cards, we helped the hundred and twenty-six under-privileged children from the Southern Kaohsiung Branch of the Taiwan Fund for Children and Families (TFCF) fulfill their dreams.


Accomplishments

We want to thank all of our supporting The Port family members. We all did our parts brilliantly, and that’s what made the event a resounding success. Although the process was difficult and had avoidable differences in opinions, it was only because we cared. Because of this, JCI The Port has gained further validation from the citizens of Kaohsiung.


Recommendations

we held not only the donation ceremony with gifts ranging from wish card gifts and small bonsai plants to piggy banks, but also performance from well-known street performers and dance troupes. The square was filled with over 500 citizens participating in the festivities, validating our efforts in this event. The smiles from the children from having their dreams fulfilled and the excited participation from the public made us forget the hardships and became our greatest encouragement. Today, we all planted individual seeds of love, and we hope to see it sprout, grow, and thrive. Although the event has seemingly reached completion, it is not the end, but the beginnings to another dream!
