專案簡介/Our project

我們是五位分別從愛爾蘭、法國、美國/日本、土耳其/德國和澳洲/蘇克蘭來到台大學習的交換生。

來台灣交換的期間,我們感受到台灣人的熱情款待,讓遙遠離鄉的我們備受溫暖。

因此,我們想要與台灣在地慈善團體「安得烈食物銀行」合作,在歲末年間以「寒冬送暖」的方式給台北地區的弱勢兒童聖誕小禮、食物箱與新年祝福,讓這份溫暖傳遞給社會中更多的人。

We are five international exchange students at NTU who feel we have been welcomed to Taiwan with open arms. In the spirit of the generosity and warmth of the Taiwanese people, we would like to give back by partnering with Andrew Charity Association to provide children in the Taipei area with Christmas gifts in addition to their monthly food boxes delivered by Andrew Charity Association.

幫助誰呢?Who we want to help

本次專案主要幫助安得烈慈善協會在新店地區所援助的弱勢家庭孩子 ,儘管是在熱鬧的新店區,卻是在這城市的邊緣 ,大多家庭經濟狀況不佳。家中的照顧者為了生活需要外出工作,通常孩子們下課後就會到課輔班讀書寫作業,等到晚上家長再來接回去。因著看見他們的需要,課輔班老師幫忙向安得烈慈善協會申請食物箱的幫助,攜手關懷這些孩子的生活需要和課業照顧。

安得烈的食物箱是孩子們每個月最期待收到的禮物,聖誕節即將到來,在這個溫馨的節日,我們希望能夠幫助這群孩子的食物箱需用費用之外,同時另外預備適合孩子的聖誕禮物,如文具、保溫瓶等,一份額外的小驚喜,讓他們感受到愛和關懷,也是為他們打氣加油,鼓勵他們在困境中不灰心,帶著希望和勇氣迎接2020年。

This crowdfunding project aims to help children in New Taipei’s Xindian district that receive services from Andrew Food Bank. The families that receive assistance from Andrew Food Bank live on the outskirts of a vibrant Xindian District, yet their economic situations are dire. The guardians of these children work until late, so the children often go to an after-school daycare to finish their homework and wait for their guardians to pick them up. Their teacher at the daycare saw that these children needed assistance and sent an application to Andrew Charity Association to help provide support together.

The food boxes from Andrew Food Bank are what these children look forward to the most every month. With the Christmas holidays coming up very soon, we hope to give them another reason to smile in addition to their boxes of food…something small but enough to surprise them and let them know that someone out there cares about them.

「聖誕送暖」的理念 / Why "A Smile for Christmas"

歲末年間,是一年中豐收的時節。在西方社會裡,也是一個家人團聚,向親朋好友表達感恩與祝福的時節。

即使在台灣社會,並非所有人會慶祝聖誕節,但我們希望通過「寒冬送禮」的方式給予這些需要幫助的孩子溫暖的祝福,讓他們知道社會上還是有一群人關心著他們、心繫著他們的溫飽與生活。因此,您的一小份心意,都將幫助他們免於承受寒冬中的飢餓,讓這份愛與祝福傳遞至社會的各個角落。

The holidays are a wonderful, joyous time of the year, and through the act of giving, we show that we care for our friends, family and loved ones. This holidays, however, can also be a tough time of the year for those with lesser means. That's why this Christmas, we want to let a child in need know that we are thinking of them, even if they cannot see us. A gift is a great symbol of love and hope. Our hope is that your gift will let them know that there is a community that cares about them, and help bring joy and happiness. We are aware that not all celebrate Christmas in Taiwan, but even with our different cultural backgrounds, we may share the idea that the winter holidays is a time for giving and sharing with our family and community. And so we hope that in the giving of presents it will help the children enjoy the end of the year and share in this experience too.

我們的目標 / What we hope to achieve

安得烈慈善協會/食物銀行靠著每個月的樂捐對全台五千多名需要幫助的孩童伸出援手。我們希望能幫助他們提高獲得的樂捐金額,來資助在12月時,台北地區內需要食物箱的孩童,並且送給他們聖誕禮物

Andrew Charity Association relies on monthly donations to serve over 5000 children in need across Taiwan. We hope to help raise funds for children in need in the Taipei area for their December food boxes and a small Christmas gift for them.

提案人自介/ Who We Are

我們是來自台灣大學的五名交換學生。分別來自法國、愛爾蘭、日本/美國、德國/土耳其和澳洲/蘇克蘭,幾乎涵蓋了五大洲!在非營利組織管理的課程中,我們必須思考和尋找我們認為需要支持的cause。回憶起我們待在台灣時所接收到的各種慷慨和溫暖,我們希望能讓台灣的孩子們也得到和我們相同的感受。歸根究底我們都知道未來的生活可能很艱難或令人失望,我們僅僅是希望笑容能夠浮現在孩童的臉上,別且讓他們知道有許多人在乎著他們。

We are five international exchange students at NTU. Hailing from France, Ireland, Japan/US, Germany/Turkey, and Australia – we almost have every continent covered! Meeting in a nonprofit management class, we were given the project of finding a cause we believed needed support. And so in reflecting on our time in Taiwan so far, we realized that we wanted to give back after all the warmth and generosity we had experienced here. Having fond memories of our childhood holidays, we thought it would be nice to somehow give Taiwanese children in need an experience we have been fortunate to grow up with. At the end of the day, we know life can be difficult and disappointing, and so we just hope to make the children smile – to give them a nice experience, and let them know we care.
