During the weekend of September 27th and September 28th, a group of children from Great Neck, Long island organized a yard sale to raise funds for the Little Fir Foundation. They created posters for the yard sale. They also brought and donated their spare clothes, books and other items.
In addition, they took turns in sales. The yard sale raised close to $800 for the Little Fir Foundation. All proceeds will be used to sponsor scholarships for selected high school and college students in rural areas in China.
About the Little Fir Foundation
Little Fir Foundation wants to give talented children from China, who otherwise wouldn't have access to higher education, a chance to not only to receive more opportunities, but also to succeed in life. We provide tuition assistance to selected underprivileged children, we fund schools, and other institutions that house programs that aim to enhance the quality of education in rural China. We select students from elementary school and provide financial support all the way through college. What's more important, we work on developing a community that provides one-on-one mentoring to all grant recipients so individual can serve as guides who are available to accompany them on their journey.
