Since the devastating earthquake occurred on May 12, we have received many donations from schools and individuals. We have sent the money to SIFA (
Sichuan Provincial People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries ) and will continue to monitor and make sure the funds will be used for the most urgent and important needs.
We would like to thank Scott Bader Commonwealth Limited of London and Tradewins of WA for their generosity. We would like to thank especially for the students who collected money for Chinese students. Below is an e-mail from the teacher at Dr. Phillip Coakley Middle School in Norwood, MA .
I am so excited to tell you that our students (a total of 90 kids) collectively raised $1200.00 for the Sichuan people, victims of the tragic earthquake. You have made a lasting impression on our children and because of that, I believe that they really worked hard to raise this money. It is by far one of the most successful fundraisers our school has had. We hope and pray that our contribution helps as many victims as possible.

How can you help?
Tax deductible donation can be sent to Cultural Exchange International, with a notation for Sichuan Earthquake Relief . Cultural Exchange International will wire the donation to SIFA for two usages:
a) Pass to China Red Cross for purchasing and distributing tents, water and food;
b) To rebuild the schools which were destroyed in the quakes.
The money will be used for these two areas exclusively and be recorded for audit.
