Announcing the Second Annual Taste of Ann-Hua Day

A unique opportunity to taste delicious Chinese food is upon us, again: The second annual Taste of Ann-Hua day will be at Washtenaw Community College (WCC) on Saturday, November 12, 2016.

Like our first wildly successful event last November, the team at Ann-Hua Rainbow Project, together with Ann-Hua Chinese School, with support from the local Michigan Chapter of the American Chinese Culinary Federation (ACCF), will present a splendid dinner on the evening of the event, with dishes prepared by local ACCF member restaurants, as well as our wonderfully home-styled culinary experts from the Ann-Hua Gourmet Brigade — all volunteers form the local Chinese community. Expect to see well-prepared restaurant food, and some perhaps less common but nonetheless tasty side dishes and desserts.

Taste of Ann-Hua is a charity event, with the purpose of promoting and fund-raising for the Ann-Hua Rainbow Project which provides direct financial support, in the form of grants and awards, to impoverished students in China’s rural and far-flung corners. All the events’ revenue will be sent to approximately 140+ students in China. The generosity of every two participants at $30 each will help us support one student for a year, besides a uniquely enjoyable evening.

Last year’s event was attended by hundreds, braving through heavy snow storm and winter traffic. This year’s event is expected to be just as successful, if not more. So get in early!

Event summary:

Time: 6:30PM ~ 8:30PM on Saturday, November 12, 2016

Location: Room 101, Morris Lawrence Building, WCC

Address: 4800 E. Huron River Drive, Ann Arbor, MI 48105-4800

Greetings and announcement from Ann-Hua Rainbow Project

posted Sep 10, 2011, 10:11 PM by Wei Wang

Dear all at Ann-Hua, greetings!

A new school year has just started and 2011 Mid-Autumn festivity is fast approaching. On behalf of the Ann-Hua Rainbow Project I would like to express the entire team's welcome to every one.

With your generous support, the AHRP has had another successful year of supporting our children's counterparts in China. We have sent funds that many of Ann-Hua families have donated, $5410 in total to 148 students in a number of schools in 5 provinces and Chongqing Municipality. You can find all the details in AHRP's Students We Support page.

Thanks to the generosity of Ann-Hua families, hard work of the team AHRP and its Student Action Team and support from all AHCS volunteers, Rainbow Project successfully raised close to $3500 in the 2010-2011 school year, through donations, some corporate matching funds and various activities. That means that AHRP has nearly $2000 an annual deficit which has persisted through the last few years. Although AHRP currently has a positive balance on its account, this is definitely not a sustainable situation for the project.

Therefore, as we do every new school year, we would like to call on all Ann-Hua families to renew your support or join the effort. To those who have been supporting our students, we say thank you! Please help us spread the word. For those who are new to Ann-Hua, we say welcome! We need you and your students and we believe AHRP will benefit your students as well.

The AHRP team will be setting up a table on the next four Sundays (9/11, 9/18, 9/25, 10/2) at the Chinese School's Concordia campus as well as the Mid-Autumn Gala at Saline High School (evening of Saturday 9/17). We would love to see familiar faces and new faces on these occasions.

For those who wish to donate but only go to the UM campus at the Engineering School, please give your donation to an AHCS team member on-duty -- We thank the AHCS team for their gracious promise to help with our fund-raising effort.

For families with high-schoolers, the AHRP Student Action Team would love to have them joining this great cause and to have fun at the same time (Videos of our students visiting schools supported by the AHRP in China can be found on YouTube: 2010 Moxi Visit, and 2011 Acer and Family to Qinghai).

Together we will make a difference!

Sincerely,

Wei Wang, on behalf of the Ann-Hua Rainbow Project

Please support the 148 school children in rural China

Dear Ann-Hua families, students, teachers and friends,

As the season turns crisp and cool, Ann-Hua Rainbow Project volunteer team members would like to extend our warm greetings and thanks. Thank you to all of you who have supported and donated to the Rainbow Project to directly help one of the 148 disadvantaged students that Rainbow currently supports in the vast rural and remote places of China, from Jiangxi to Yunnan, to Sichuan and to Qinghai.

As we are relieved to send off our children to school in this season, or excited to go back to the classroom, let us remember that at this same moment, these 148 school children are relying on us to continue the privilege and pride of basic education. There is no better time than NOW to again open our heart, pull out our checkbook, so we could meet the hope and anxiety of these bright and beautiful children.

Rainbow Project volunteers will be at Ann Hua School from 9am to 6pm on the following four Sundays of September 12, 19, 26, and October 3, to chat with you and accept your donation. We’d like to urge you to take 5 minutes of your busy time to come in to school and see us. In case you are unable, we urge you to contact one of the following Rainbow volunteers in town at any time:

Letter from Rainbow Project to Ann Hua Community

posted Feb 26, 2010, 8:33 AM by Wei Wang

Dear Ann Hua Students, Families and Friends,

Happy New Year!

We are proud that the Ann Hua community is a deeply loving and caring family. Each year, we extend our care and love across the ocean to the vast land of our ancestors and cultural roots. Our students and families never forget to donate our savings, our lucky money from the red envelopes, or our hard-earned wages from working part-time outside of school, to Ann Hua Rainbow Project, to be delivered directly to more than 100 disadvantaged students in rural China, from Qing Hai, Jiang Xi, He Bei, to Si Chuan, to help with those children’s education. In the spirit of the New Year and on behalf of all the students we sponsored in China, Rainbow Project volunteers would like to express heart-felt thanks and warm wishes to all Ann Hua students, families and friends. Thank you so much for your continued support and generosity.            

In addition, as a continuation of Ann Hua’s May 2008 disaster relief support to 100 Sichuan Earthquake affected children in Xiaojin County, A Ba Yi and Tibetan Ethnic Autonomous Region of Sichuan, starting 2010, we will continuously support 10 out of those 100 Xiaojin children each year going forward, to help them complete their elementary and secondary education. 

We will also continue to utilize our summer vacations to China to visit our sponsored students.

Please email Rainbow Project at rainbow@annhua.org if you would like to make a donation, and if you have any questions and comments. Your kind attention and tireless support is greatly appreciated. May the New Year bring you and your family peace and joy.
