What is The BIG DAY?
The BIG DAY, to be held on 5th May, is the largest volunteer event organized by Ching Wan Society. We will be visiting 9 different charity organizations and serving over 200 people in need. These include individuals who are elderlies, children in need and disabled. Ching Wan Volunteers will be providing balloon twisting, creative crafts and group games to these individuals. Meanwhile, the BIG DAY will be a platform where we aim to inspire these individuals to share love and care within the community by creating crafts and giving other small gifts to one another.
Colorful Balloon Twisting
Our volunteers are trained with balloon twisting skills and techniques. During the BIG DAY, the volunteers and individuals in need will be divided into groups and creating their own balloon creatures. Throughout the activity, the disabled and elderlies have a chance to demonstrate their talents and artistic skills in balloon twisting. We hope that the creative end-products could give them great satisfactions and color their life.
Crafts are particularly fun for children, disabled and elderlies when disabilities keep them away from outdoor activities. In fact, art provides an alternative outlet for those who have difficulty in expressing themselves verbally. We have a collection of craft ideas suitable for different individuals in need to explore and exert their creativity.
