We are so excited to be able to officially join the GlobalGiving platform and provide our first update to our generous sponsors! Pleaser download our PDF for the newsletter and breakdown of some of our key events since December. Thanks to your support, since your donation we've hosted 13 creative education + plantbased meal workshops throughout all of Taiwan from Orchid Island with indigenous youth to a Miaoli Shelter providing resources to those with disabilities. We are now working with SUIIS platform, Taiwan's largest vegetarian online shopping platform, to provide food staples to families in need and more plant-based meals for our youth.
2019 FW Friendship Meter While we may spend 60-95 hours for each workshop regardless if it’s half day or full day and could easily execute a 300-500 person event during the same amount of planning, we limit each of our workshop attendance to approximately 15 members in the community and 15 Big Friends. This increases enhance the quality of interaction and depth of engagement, making everyone a memorable individual instead of simply a “volunteer.”
