Bright Side 2019 Jia-Xin Winter Necessities Update

Thank you so much for your support!
2019 is the tail end of an amazing decade that has seen the rise of Bright Side Projects and our continued work in the community. We are building a comprehensive support system for our youth and young adults and this can only happen if everyone takes part. Our “Winter Necessities & Meals for Taiwanese Children” although we did fall short of our goal via GG, we were still able to impact youth and families on the ground with help of local Taiwanese donors and supporters and sponsors.
Each family may have 1-5 children / 3 of the families in Taitung were targeting senior citizens, some are in a vegetative state in which we provided diapers as requested). All items proved were plant-based; organic and supporting local farmers whenever possible, purchasing high quality items. We used no extra packaging or upcycled shipment paper with no-tape no-plastic zero waste for gifting when required.
* 12 families in ChingChuan (Indigenous Atayal) * 8 families in Taitung (Indigenous Amis) * Amount of organic rice delivered: 1146 lbs (approximately 175lbs per family) * Value of plant-based food staples and necessities per family: approximately $265 USD
As this is a seasonal campaign targeting year end activities, it will currently come to a close until our Winter 2020 campaign, but there are ongoing programs that provide plant-based food staples and creative education to our kids all year round since we know that a long term investment is what is needed for the future.
