Whenever there is an opportunity to endorse or to influence the public for a charitable cause, Han Geng would be one of the firsts to response to the cry for help..
Just a day ago, he was appealing to the public at large to help support the basic needs of school children by attending the program “I Love School”. His weibo entry is a proof of his sincerity and his unashamed support for the program…
Hope everyone can save a shirt, a pair of shoes, a meal, to do something for the children. The smile they give back to us will be our greatest happiness! Lets move 1200!
The appeal of his is that if one person can save a shirt or a pair of shoes or even a meal to help contribute to these school needs of the children will go a long way. All we can get in return is to see the joy on the faces of these children..!! He knows what he is talking about because he has been there and had experienced it first-hand. He is not asking for huge donations but small things that can light up the faces of the children who can avail of a school bag or a pair of school shoes which are a necessity in going to school. Just imagine, a child going to school without a proper school bag, where would the books be kept..and no proper shoes..? Many of these things are taken for granted by us who do not realise that to others a school bag is a luxury item that they can ill afford or a proper pair of school shoes.
What Han Geng is doing as of now is.. sowing for the future as these young ones are being nurtured and taken care of ; they will in turn grow up to be better future citizens and hopefully leaders in their respective fields..When one sow kindness, one will reap kindness in return many times over…!! Has anyone heard of the proverb…One Good Turn Deserves Another..?
Han Geng is not just only a celebrity star or an idol, but he is also a visionary..he is preparing well into the future for the welfare of mankind…! He won’t get anything in return except the sweet smiles of these children…!! I remembered a song by one of my country’s singers ( Sudirman)….the title of the song is
One Thousand Million Smiles
That can’t be bought or sold
A ray of sunshine across the waters
That comes straight from the soul
Let us join our hands together
To bind the colours of our skin
A rainbow under God’s great heaven
A sign that love will always win
One thousand million smiles
I bring to you across the miles
In my land of sunshine
Or in your land of snow
Makes no difference where you are
If you let your feelings show
One thousand million ways
To love each other every day
For the poet and the old man
For the mother and the child
These One thousand million smiles
If the world is full of sorrows
Then what’s the meaning of life
If war is the master of the house
And hunger is his wife too…
But a shining bridge of lovin’ smiles
And tender helping hands
Will bind all men on earth together
And will forever stand
So here! Stand with heart in hand
I bring this gift from my homeland
So take these smiles and sweets hellos
Keep then in your heart where ever you may go
Postscript from the event..
“On the afternoon of September 15, the launching press conference for the “I’ll Participate, I’ll Support” event under the large-scale themed charity event for “2010 Music Radio Voice of Music ‘I Want to Go to School’ 1200 Student Aid Event” banner was held at Beijing’s The One Club. Han Geng, Zhang Jie, Li Xiao Yun, Sun Nan and her daughter made their appearance at the venue to show their love and support as the ambassadors for the event. Yu•Quan even sang their theme song 《Big Hand Small Hand》 live, which was specially composed for the activity. They called out to the community to pay more attention to the children’s development, and build the great wall of love together.
Voice of Music Sounded the Signal to Gather for Charity, Han Geng Voiced Up to Initiate Event
In 2010, Voices of Music, in conjunction with the China Children and Youth Foundation, started the “2010 Music Radio Voice of Music ‘I Want to Go to School’ 1200 Student Aid Event” together. They have identified the children in impoverished areas, and by using their media-attracting selves, they have called out to the society and social enterprises, and would be using the “one-to-one-helping” model in order to donate RMB1200 to each of the impoverished children as part of their three-year living aid. While showing their love, the donors can also communicate with the children that they are helping out through letters or visits. The care, support, and encouragement that would last for three years, would be accompanying the children so that they could have a happy and healthy childhood.
On the day of the press conference, Han Geng, as the ambassador for the event this year, called out to all the kind-hearted people and mass media that were present: “In China, there are still many children who are trapped in a life of impoverishment because of their family background. Let us all join hands and participate in the ‘Voices of Music – ‘I Want to Go to School’ 1200 Schooling Aid Event’!”
