“Character First” is a monthly workshop which we share about one good character, this is always a night full of fun but still with meaningful content.
After a fun icebreaker, the team revealed the topic with us:“Determination”. This topic is useful for everybody.
As a determined person, setting a “right” goal for ourselves is a basic foundation. But a goal is just a beginning, to reach it we need to learn to ignore all distractions, turn others’ discouragement into motivation and face with all problems head on.
To share with us useful advices about the above things, the team added into their short and sharp speech with touching video clips, amazing skits and cool game. At the end, the team taught us “Determination” song with dancing – “…Keep on moving, keep on moving, keep on moving till the work is done....”.
We hope everybody joining was inspired and could get something to practice the character of Determination more in daily life.
We hope to see you at this workshop again on March 2015!
A Saturday night on 17th Jan, our friends from Thailand brought to us a great “Cultural night” with many different activities. We had a chance to get an overview about Thai, Lao, Brazilian and American cultures. We played so hard with funny games prepared by the team. We enjoyed the traditional dances performed by our friendly and talented friends. They also prepared a traditional food from Thailand for us. It’s called “Pat Thai”. It was such a great night.
Thanks so much for the careful preparation, Team!
Sozo sells handmade Jewelry and uses the income for charity work to help the needy.
We meet volunteers and students and make them together every 2 weeks on Wednesday. Last month, we met together with the Thailand Team. Sitting around tables, we made more new products: many bracelets in different colors, earrings with different styles and many magnets.
People that never made jewelry before learned really fast how to make it. Well done!
While putting beads on string or cluing pictures on magnets, we talked and got to know each other better. After two hours of chit chatting and working hard, we finished with new products.
What a great time together! Thank you to those coming and helping us! We hope to see you at our next jewelry making (the coming one will be tomorrow 04Feb15, 4-6pm at Sozo top floor)
