致全体捐款人的一封信




亲爱的捐款人朋友们:

牛年即将来临,祝各位和家人在新的一年里幸福、安康!

2020年在每个人的记忆里都会是特别艰难的一年,但回首过往,它仍然有很多美好瞬间。风雨后,我们高兴地向大家汇报,OCEF的各项工作仍然交出了漂亮的成绩单。

过去的一年,OCEF资助了14个省的小学、初中和高中生共计5519人次,捐赠了16913册图书帮助乡村学校设立图书角和图书室,并为15所学校捐赠书桌椅以及改善学生宿舍条件等,总支出95万多美元。最让人高兴的是,288名接受资助的高中生顺利考上了大学,追求更好的生活。这些幸运儿占应届高中生的60%以上。疫情叫停了我们的暑期支教计划、延误了网络课堂项目,然而我们仍然有71位义工老师为乡村学校提供了480节网络课,涵盖英语、生物、美术、音乐、作文等科目,让1500名学生受益。特别值得一提的是,回信组的51位义工共给受助学生写信537封,让孩子们知道他们并不孤单,还有我们爱他们。

与此同时,OCEF 2020年的募捐工作表现出色,收入总计超过119万美元,创下了历史新高。在机构管理上,我们进一步完善各项规章制度和工作流程,让基金会工作更加制度化、透明化和专业化。

走过2020年实属不易,而这所有的成绩都离不开每一位捐款人的热情支持!因为有了大家的爱心和共同奉献,OCEF给祖国贫困学子的人生带来了一些改善、一些机会和一些希望。新的一年里,诚愿一切美好如期而至,更多良善不期而遇,我们一起在助学路上携手继续前行!

祝福每一位捐款人朋友,并真诚感谢各位!非常时期,请照顾好自己和家人。大家牛年大吉!

A Letter to All of Our Donors

Dear donors:

The Year of the Ox is upon us, and we wish you and your family a happy and healthy lunar New Year!

2020 had probably been a particularly challenging year in everyone’s memory. Looking back, however, it was still full of memorable moments. After all the turbulence, we are very happy to report that OCEF has turned it into another great year on all fronts.

In the past year, OCEF gave financial aid to 5,519 students in elementary, middle and high schools in 14 provinces, donated 16,913 books to help rural schools build libraries, and provided classroom equipment and dormitory improvements to 15 schools that amounted to more than $950,000. Moreover, 288 sponsored high schoolers got admitted to colleges and are on their way to a better life, which accounts for over 60% of the graduating class. We had to cancel summer camps and delayed Internet classroom projects due to the global pandemic; still, 71 volunteer teachers taught 480 classes over the Internet, covering a variety of subjects such as English, Biology, Arts, Music, and Composition and benefited more than 1,500 students. Particularly worth mentioning is that 51 volunteers in the Correspondence Group wrote 537 letters to the sponsored students, letting them know that they are not alone and there are people who care about them.

Meanwhile, OCEF fundraising achieved a new record in 2020 with a total revenue of more than $1.19 million. On organizational management, we have further improved internal regulations and processes, making our work more institutionalized, more transparent and more professional.

2020 was not an easy year to navigate, and what we have achieved would not have been possible without the enthusiasm and selfless support from each and every donor. Thanks to everyone’s love and dedication, OCEF was able to provide some improvement, some opportunities and some hope to the students in poverty. We hope that great things will keep coming in 2021, whether expected or unexpected, and that we will continue to march on hand in hand on this journey!

We truly appreciate your help! Please take care of yourself and your family during this extraordinary time, and best wishes to all of our donors for the Year of the Ox!

Sincerely
OCEF

从小学到中学,我一直接受着OCEF的资助,OCEF资助的每一笔钱我都用在了学业上,用这些钱我不断充实自己,让自己的成绩有大的进步。好在功夫不负有心人,我终于在今年考上了内蒙古医科大学的市场营销专业,我踏进了大学的门槛,我看到了乡村外的世界。

因为一直在接受着您的帮助很是感激,所以我一直再找一个机会也能像您一样去帮助别人,所以我步入大学后,第一件事就是加入到我校的红十字会,和我院的学生会,我尽我所能的去帮助别人,帮助身边的同学,让我所接受的大爱,也传递下去。

OCEF是一个很棒的基金会,让像我一样的孩子,可以继续进行学习,摆脱失学的问题,可以去看农村外的世界,所以我也十分希望可以成为其中一员,尽我所能,帮助别人,让我有一个机会可以回报您对我的帮助。让这份大爱继续延续下去!

正值圣诞节的来临,在这里祝你圣诞节快乐,愿您和您的家人身体健康,事业顺利。

“小东”同学,2020年12月18日:

您好。

我来自甘肃,是一个接受过您捐款的学生。我待人和善,喜欢交朋友,有感恩之心。

我是从初二下学期开始接触OCEF,也是初二下学期开始收到第一笔资金。到现在已经接受了九个学期的资助。接受的捐款主要用在买学习工具和资料书上了,没有半点浪费,也不敢有半点浪费。

我初二的时候收到过一次义工的来信,也回过四次信。感觉内心很是温暖。

现在就读于大连理工大学,材料科学与工程学院。目前受到学校的社会助学金资助,而且正在从事一份家教工作,争取自立自强。

捐款人叔叔,谢谢您,谢谢您这几年来对我的资助,您的捐款对我帮助很大,让我能够买一些必要的学习工具和资料书,让我不至于因为买不起资料书而落下学业,同时让我知道,原来社会上还有像您这样善良的人在关心着我,温暖了我的同时,你给了我努力学习的动力,希望以后可以像您一样帮助他人,做个有价值的人。


Letters of Appreciation from Sponsored Students to Donors

From Xiao Bao, December 21, 2020:

Hello!

I am a student under your sponsorship. How time flies—I have gone from elementary school to college seemingly in no time. With your sponsorship, I have completed my studies in high school and set my foot on a college campus. I really appreciated your help in making my college dream come true!

Throughout elementary, middle and high schools, I was always supported by OCEF. Every penny from OCEF was spent on my education to expand my vision and improve my academic performance. All my efforts finally paid off; I was admitted to Inner Mongolia Medical University as a marketing major, and now I get to see the world outside of my village.

Since I have always been appreciative of your help, I am always looking for ways to help others. The first thing I did after getting to college was to join the Red Cross organization on campus and the student union in my university, so that I can do my best to help others and pass on the love that was given to me.

OCEF is a wonderful foundation that enabled kids like me to continue with their studies, to avoid having to drop out of school and to see the outside world. I would really like to become part of it, help others and pay back your kindness to me.

Christmas is coming; I wish you a Merry Christmas and hope you and your family are doing well!

From Xiao Dong, December 18, 2020

Hello!

I came from Gansu Province and I am a student who benefitted from your donations. I am a friendly person, enjoy making friends and am very appreciative of what I have received.

I got to know about OCEF during the second half of 7th grade and received my first financial aid at that time, too. By now I have been supported by OCEF for nine semesters. Most of the funds I received were spent on books and tools for study; I have wasted nothing and dare not waste anything.

I received a letter from an OCEF volunteer in 7th grade and since then I have written back four letters. It warms my heart to do so.

Currently I am enrolled in the Material Science and Engineering School at Dalian University of Technology. I receive financial aid from the school now and hold a part-time tutoring job; I am trying to be self-sufficient.

Dear Mr. Benefactor, thank you for your sponsorship over the years! It helped me greatly in getting much needed school supplies and books, so that I would not fall behind for not being able to afford the books I needed. Moreover, it made me realize that there are good-hearted people in the society, like you, who care for me. Besides warming my heart, you gave me inspiration to study hard. I hope I will become someone like you—someone to help others and be a valuable member of the society.
