NAAAP-SF & TAP-SF’s 2nd Annual Holiday Bash

Print Friendly
 
A Winter Charity Fundraiser

With the holidays fast approaching, NAAAP-SF & TAP-SF cordially invites you to their 2nd Annual Holiday Bash!
There are 800 underprivileged kids who will not have any Christmas presents. All of the event proceeds will be be donated to buy Christmas presents for those underprivileged children in the bay area. They will be giving toys to the children of Asian Women’s Shelter, Oakland Asian Student Educational Sevices (OASES), Chinatown Community Development Center (CCDC), APA Family Services, and Vietnamese Youth Development Center (VYDC).
Last year they were able to raise over $12,500 to help 450 kids realize their holiday wishes. Please check out the event pictures from last year’s sold out Holiday Bash!
Due to the tough economy, the number of kids that need our help has risen to 800.  Hence, they are hoping to raise over $20,000 in order to insure that none of these 800 kids will have to go without a Christmas present.
Here are a few words from some of the parents last year:
“My son always begs me for Christmas gift. I have no way to buy him a gift and pay for paper to wrap it. With these young people who volunteer and donate, my son’s wish came true and now I even believe in Santa.” – Yin Quin – mother of 7 year old boy
 

“My husband and I are always worrying that we don’t have money, we don’t have food, we don’t have diapers for my baby but today we forget our worries because my baby smiled. He received a gift of love and we are grateful.” – Esmerelda – mother of 2 year old Theo 
 
 On 4th grade Ryan’s wish list included power tools for dad, a frying pan for mom, toys for his sister and nothing for himself. He was just in awe that he got all the gifts that he casually asked for. When walking home with his mom after getting his gifts, Ryan said to her, ‘I now have something to give to Dad.’
