IF - Forgotten -Tribute to Children Survived in the Earthquake

Thousands of schools collapsed during the May 12th 2008 Earthquake in China and by some estimates more than 6,000 students died. We watched the Artisters 512 Fund-Raising Campaign, heard many moving incidents, tears after tears..... This Massive Disaster may not be Forgotten by the Children who survived from this terrible incident. Please Give to heal and re-build their soul, their homeland.. Thank you!
Tribute to Children in China -
Stand Strong! Children!


今天看了一大段演藝界512關愛行動,是由演藝界台前幕後人員齊心發動,除善款以外,主要目的是為災民作出一個不離不棄承諾,希望各界同胞善長人翁以關愛的心,給予四川災民持續性的鼓勵、與及心靈上的關愛。段中聽了很多感人肺腑、心痛的故事,令我和家人流淚水沾濕了整个臉孔。
痛心的心情畫...

孩子們!別怕!振作起來!好好活着!

Absolutely heartbreaking. No, they will never be forgotten. I couldn't watch anymore because of my tears. I feel rather helpless and hope that donations are enough to heal their souls and their hearts.

A very moving picture, so very beautiful. It's beyond terrible what's happened and I cry every time I see it on the news, it's just unbelievable.

It's so sad to imagine only one child suffering all that. The magnitude of the disaster multiplies this horror.
Neither survivors nor lost ones can be forgotten. All these people will need lots of love and efforts to re-build their lives. This post is a nice tribute to them Kim.

Powerful video to accompany your art which is beautiful! We hear things on the news and it seems a world away from us, but watching the video and the anguish of parents, rescuers, the sleeping and exhausted doctors...it really makes an impact. School should be a place of safety for little ones. It is so horrible that children were the majority of those affected while attending school. Thank you for sharing.
