This Friday, February 5, will not be a regular work day for those of us at WildChina.
At the end of this week, we will be involved in our company annual off-site day. However, while in past years we have had company-wide meetings and events, we have changed our plan for this year.
Our new associates Derek, Cameron, Echo and Haiying have organized a day of community service for WildChina at Bethel, “a not-for-profit organization that provides foster care, education and professional training for Chinese orphans who are blind or visually impaired.”
On Friday, we will be working at the foundation, located just outside of Beijing, to aid the orphans in constructing a greenhouse.
We are really looking forward to helping such a great organization that combines care and education for orphans with the ideas of sustainable community and environmental protection.
Stay tuned for a blog post on how our day of service went!
