【來自Daniel:這張照片代表了我們所有行動】

這活動一開始這個孩子就讓我一整天心情都很好,當他看到我走上前跟民眾打招呼的時候,他尖叫跑上前想要近看一些,能夠參加活動讓他真的很雀躍。之後,當我們照團體照時,他也執意要跑到布條前面來。
他們一家參與了整場活動、盡了一己之力讓台灣更美好。在活動的最後,他問我是否可以一起照張相,也剛好有人發現了這隻被丟棄又受損的米妮老鼠,所以也加入了這張合照。
如果問說RE-THINK的宗旨是什麼,這張照片就表述了一切。RE-THINK並不單單只是要清理台灣美麗的海岸,我們了解這是個非短期能夠成功的抗戰。我們的目標有些不同,我們希望爸媽、爺爺奶奶們都能帶孩子來到淨灘活動,我們核心目的是要教育、啟發這些孩子,他們是我們的未來。
如果我們堅持決心並繼續維護環境、如果未來的世代都接受適當的教育和啟發,我們就達到目標了。這將會是好一番努力,但我們能夠合作一起做出改變。

New Taipei City Event:

From the beginning of the event this kid made my day. When he saw me walking up to greet the volunteers he squealed with excitement and ran over to get a closer look. He was truly excited to participate. Later when we took the group picture, he was determined to get up in front with our banner. His family participated in the entire event and did their part to make Taiwan a better place. At the end of the event, he asked if I'd take a picture with him. Thankfully, someone had discovered Minnie Mouse, discarded and abused. So she was able to join our picture.
When asked what RE-THINK is all about, this picture tells it all. It's not just about cleaning up Taiwan's beautiful coasts. We understand that is a huge battle that we clearly cannot win in the short term. Our vision is different, we want parents and grandparents to bring their children to the clean up events. We aim to educate and inspire these children. They are our future.
If we continue to be determined and continuously maintain the environment, and if future generations are provided with the proper education and inspiration, we can achieve our goals. It's hard work, but together we can make a difference.
