On April 14th, 2010, a 7.1-magnitude earthquake happened in Yushu, Qinghai province. Just after that, GBI got in touch with the friends of “Wild Yak Ecological Association” and launched the “All for love— GBI’s material assistance to the disaster areas in Yushu”. Until July, GBI got 5,000 yuan donation in total (with a bonus), but still many friends hope to donate clothing. Because of that, we carried out a united event. The director of the contribution raised points in upper city collected all the clothing to our office and packed them together with other materials received on that day and then sent all of them to the disaster areas in Yushu.

After initial on-line requisition, 11 volunteers joined in the whole event. Other 8 people left after bought the clothing. The number of participants should be 19 in total. We also received 300 yuan donation on that day.

After 9 o’clock, I met a dozen of people at the subway station and went back my home together. At the beginning, the clothing were too many to begin with, however, after divided the work, the volunteers got into the role very soon. Joy, Dora and Xiaoxin counted the new donated clothing and classified them according to teacher Jin’s method. Mana was responsible for registering the counted clothing based on the information of the donors. Jisubingdian, Duolong, Mumu, Mrs. Li and other people were in charge of unpacking the upper city-clothing which have been registered, and piling them up by category.

After registration, we began to pack the clothing by category. The packaging materials are still from the rest of “Get through the cold together” event in 2008, left by Zhangjiakou volunteers. Xiaoxin and Mrs. Li were in charge of sticking plastic bags, while Dora and I were responsible for sewing some packaging bags and others began to pack the clothing with plastic bags. After wrapped, we packed them in the packaging bags and then marked number and figured out package list. We also cleaned up the room after done the job. We were very surprised on the statistics. According to Landehuan, there are more than 170 items from upper city donation and I have 60 items here, so the total should be about 300. However, we got 461 items finally and packed them into 11 parcels. It is really appreciated to all donors.

It was almost noon. Landehuan kept busy in the kitchen the whole morning for preparing lunch for us. Until now, volunteers just introduced themselves to each other and shared the food they brought along. During the lunch, we talked a lot about environmental protection, public welfare, charity and other topics of interest. The founder of GBI gave us a couple of movie tickets this morning when he sent the clothes, so we added lottery draw temporarily, using the tickets as the gifts, picking out four lucky numbers by four beautiful ladies. In the end, Mumu, Xiaoxin, Dora became today’s lucky. We also presented the volunteers participated in this event with a set of bookmarks as souvenirs.

Mumu and Bingdian provided transportation support. After lunch, we put 8 parcels into the cars of Mumu and Bingdian. Mana and I went to the post office with the cars firstly and then they picked up Laosong, Duolong, Landehuan, Joy and Dora and took the rest parcels. We sewed up the bags and filled out mail documents separately. We weighted the bags finally and they were 148, 571 grams, more than 148 kilograms, and the total postage was 732,25 yuan.

In the end, this event was successful. The weather was very hot and our room was poor and without air conditioning, but we all completed the work earnestly and efficiently. I would like to thank all of the volunteers here. What a hard work they did!

Since many friends still want to donate clothing, we will decide whether to organize this kind of event again according to the situation. Welcome your continuous attention and support!
