The Fundraising dinner is only 11 days away, our ticket sales are far below our goal.
The glory of
rural areas. Someone have to take the lead to help those who are still not under the Sunshine.
Fund Raising becomes harder as the need gets deeper.
September 20, 2009
Hurrah!! We have just won a $30,000 award from this world renowned Graphic Processor Technology leader, after a keenly competitive process among dozens of Charity organizations competing for the 5 equally-amounted grants the Company dishes out annually.
On May 27th, 2009, the SOAR fund raising team received an email from our beloved Chairman Ben, informing us that there is a Request for Application package arrived at SOAR from NVIDIA. The deadline for responding to the RFA is June 1, 2009.
It all started with the kind heart of Mr. Kai Chen, a NVIDIA employee, who just happened to have watched a KTSF-San Francisco TV interview of Siu Chang and Davy Kao promoting the SOAR Annual Fund-Raising Dinner in late May of 2009. Mr. Chen spent a lot of efforts locating SOAR, and sent us the RFA via email.
SOAR volunteer team members receiving this RFA are to be commended for dispatching the package timely to the right persons, to still give us 5 days to work on it. The fund raising team became very busy immediately, and with the help of SOAR-wide cooperation, primarily from Suey-ju, in providing the needed legal and financial documentations, we were able to complete the seemingly “mission impossible” in time.
We answered all the 10 questionnaires in the RFA as a first try, forwarded them to Mr. Chen, and got in touch with him over phone for all later iterations of modifications. Our telephone conversations with Mr. Chen seemed never end from there on, until the final submission of the application on June 1, 2009.
In these telephone conversations, Mr. Chen told us that there can be as many as over 50 applicants this year for the grant. The first run of a NVIDIA Company-wide all-employee tally of vote would eliminate all but 10 candidates, to finally screen out another 50% of the finalists to leave only 5 organizations to be awarded with the $30,000. In a year like this year, when all purses got tightened up like clams, 30-grand turns a lot of heads of charity organizations. Thus the competition can be even tougher.
As a nominator of SOAR to compete for the resources, Mr. Chen has been holding our hands all the way in coming up with the best possible answers and documentations as SOAR responses. We are deeply in debt for his tireless cooperation and carefulness to details that “forced” us to work equally hard and prudently, to perfecting our package to eventually win the award.
By mid-July, Davy received an email from Mr. Chen and the NVIDIA steering committee for the grant, advising us that SOAR has passed the first cycle of elimination to become one of the 10 finalists. That added severity to Davy’s heart condition to make it beats even faster, until the $30,000 check arrived at Suey-ju’s desk just a few days ago.
NVIDIA is the world leader in research, development, manufacture and distribution of Graphic Chips, which is believed to be the future of the computer industry. With $5 Billion revenue and at 20% net income, the Company is well positioned for the next Graphic Presentation revolution that is soon to arrive. We wish them all the best in their venture for the best in the near future. “It will be GPU in the place of CPU.” (The Company’s information can be view in more details via : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nvidia).
We thank the Company for their philanthropic generosity and spirits. We thank their Company-wide employees for their share of charity-minded kind deeds to participate and become instrumental in the selection process. Of course, our sincere thanks goes to Kai Chen for his initiation and leadership to finally make SOAR one of the honored recipients.
The only regret left is that until now, nobody in SOAR has ever had the opportunity meeting Mr. Chen in person yet. We are sure Mr. Chen will quickly remedy this regret of ours by responding to our invitation to meet with him soon.

树华的Office Manager- Kathy Cheng 黄秀文, 一肩担下重任, 从计划, 安排, 联络, 执行…….井井有条, 带领大家顺畅愉快的把家搬了过来.
事前, 值班的同仁都整理好自己的办公用具, 并且把树华的文件逐渐装箱, 杨湘韻, Roger, 冯先生….更是把学生资料都再重新排列一遍, 11-26 大致就绪. 大家都回家过感恩节.
29日, 星期六一早Kathy和辛先生树华就等在办公室, 8:15 四位墨西哥年轻朋友到达, 立刻按照李自洁标示好的次序, 逐件搬动起来. 重的文件柜, 装箱的文件…用堆高机运送; 怕碎的物件如复印机等等则用人力小心的推过去. 黄秀文, 李自洁, 柴淑芳等几位在新址招呼两位墨西哥年轻朋友摆妥各物件; 辛先生树华和翟孟斌在旧址忙着编排运送; 宋曼玲和左钟秀来回搬些特别重要的文件, 周庆华则把所有的电脑和电话通通由他自己小心的搬, 更是累得满头大汗. 大家就这麽顺当忙碌的过了一上午.等到要喘一口气的时候,已由Kathy和柴淑芳买来盒饭供大家享用, 饱餐後, 继续搬清所有该搬的物件, 下午1时半打扫干净. 四位墨西哥年轻朋友和堆高机驾驶员也都拿到适当的报酬, 心满意足的陆续离去. 环顾空荡荡的办公室, 颇有感慨: 康泰公司和树华几年来共处一室的和睦伙伴, 就要到新天地去继续快乐的工作了.
周一, 周庆华在新址装妥了所有的电脑和电话; 又会同电话公司的人接妥网络, 周二以后逐步归整, 树华在新址又轻松愉快的工作起来.

其实, 新和旧址是同一个主人—余定文女士, 她也是树华的长久赞助人. 看到新搬来的树华同仁在忙碌的整理文件, 颇为感动. 谈到以后的租赁合同, 她大方的说: 租金从优, 所有的手纸茶杯…等等杂费全免! 在树华财务捉衿见肘的今天, 实在叫我们大大的松了一口气.让我们替树华的学子们谢谢这位善心人, 祝她健康愉快, 幸福长寿!
