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.
