HEARTS WARM HEARTS – Shine a light and send it on

As promised, this is a full report on the HEARTS WARM HEARTS fundraising campaign happening on my blog from 20/10 to 31/10/2013.

You can access the report on expenses Here

I have prepared a video about the campaign from the start til the end as follow. Hope you enjoy it 🙂

It is never enough to say thanks to those who have supported the flood-affected people through “Hearts Warm Hearts”. I hope you can see the love and the happiness shining in the eyes of those people when they received your gifts.

In each of the 3 areas, I gave 20 gift packs, which comes to 60 families in total. Apart from that, I also came to visit especially severely affected families. You can see the pictures below to get to know more about their situations.

    Chúc mừng cậu.
    Tớ không đủ điều kiện để có thể giúp gì được trong chương trình này nhưng vẫn luôn dõi theo những gì cậu làm trong suốt những ngày vừa rồi.
    Vậy là tớ biết thêm được 1 trái tim yêu tình nguyện và giàu lòng nhân ái nữa.
    Hi vọng có cơ hội được gặp cậu một ngày nào đó. 😀
