In the Spirit of the Red Envelope

Every Chinese New Year, we eagerly wait for our monthly foster care reports to come in. Of course we really look forward to adorable photos of children holding new toys, wearing new clothes, or beaming at the lucky red envelope in their hand.

Our hearts are moved by stories of children in our foster care program celebrating as part of a family. We read about children working alongside their foster granny as she prepares traditional Chinese food and snacks for the festival and imagine the child soaking up the aroma and sneaking little tastes in the kitchen.

Chinese New Year 2013 Red Envelope Campaign

In China on New Year’s Day (February 10th this year), children in families receive money in red paper envelopes, and celebrate with large feasts, festivals and lots of time with relatives. However, there are many children in China without families to celebrate with them. There are many children who will not feast, and in fact, many who are hungry every day. This year, to honor those children and make a difference in their lives, Love Without Boundaries (LWB) is doing a Red Envelope campaign to provide a New Year’s gift to an orphan. Read more.

The Red Envelope Campaign

Chinese New Year, which begins on January 23rd this year, is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays. Families clean their homes to sweep away bad luck, decorate windows and doors with red colored couplets, feast with family members on the eve of Chinese New Year, and end the night with firecrackers. Early on New Year’s Day children like Ben and Lance will don new outfits and receive money in red paper envelopes. But there are many children in China without families to celebrate with them. This year, to honor those children, Love Without Boundaries is running a special Red Envelope Campaign for the children in our Believe in Me Huainan School. Won’t you join us in giving a New Year’s gift to an orphan? Read more.
