Dear Friends, Following the earthquake in Sichuan, every Chinese person felt shock, pain, and sadness. We weep for what this tragedy has brought to our motherland, even if we are in a foreign land far away from the earthquake. The earthquake left us sleepless. We are saddened. We are in disbelief. We mourn for the loss of life.  We are glad to see so many Chinese people in Minnesota lend their loving hands by making donations. What we have given to our motherland goes beyond the monetary value—we give our hearts and our love as her children away from home. Facing the tragedy, all Chinese lives are relevant. Nobody remains a distant on-looker. We all participate in the relief effort, one way or another.  Merely a month after the quake, more than 40 Chinese organizations and 400+ families, as well as many American friends in Minnesota have contributed more than $90,908.20 (as of June 15) to CAAM/China Earthquake Relief Fund that dedicates for the school reconstruction, with more on the way.  We applaud this cooperation and thank you for your participation! We also hope that we will all cherish friendship and solidarity, and work together toward a better future for the Chinese community here.  Below is a partial list of the organizations, families and individuals who have made donations. Since collecting donations is an on-going process, we will update you soon with a more comprehensive list.  If any donor’s name is missing in the list or any donor who does not want his/her name to be published, please contact Vincent Mar: 952-953-6026, e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots.
