On October 24, 2015, the Chinese Americans organized by Chinese American Association of Minnesota (CAAM), Minhua Chorus, Minghua Chinese School and China
Tribune and supported by over thirty other groups in the Twin Cities are hosting Voice of Peace, an all-day special event in St. Paul, Minnesota. We are
writing today to request your support to help us produce this event.
The Voice of Peace event will commemorate the 70th anniversary of the ending of World War II and the Chinese people’s war of resistance against Japanese
aggression. There will be a series of festivities including historical photographs and do*****ents on display, a public lecture by WWII veteran, as well as
music and dance performances with the main theme of War, Peace and Progress.
We are organizing this large scale community event to amplify the voice of worldwide anti-war and anti-terrorism causes and to help remind all kind-hearted
people of our aspiration and pursuit for peace, encourage them to work together to prevent a repetition of the historical tragedy suffered by the Chinese
people and safeguard the outcomes of World War II. We also wish to further promote and strengthen the joint effort made between China and the United States
in maintaining world peace.
In order to enhance the financial transparency of the donations, the event organizing committee has set up a special account dedicated solely for the
purpose of this event. Upon the consent of the donors, we will publish a rolling list of contributors in the China Tribune.
From this point forward, the event organizing committee is ready to receive individual and group donations. The deadline for donations is Wednesday,
November 11, 2015 at 12:00 midnight.
We have two main goals:
1. Raise $35,000 for various programs related to the Voice of Peace event
2. Encourage involvement with the Voice of Peace event – promotion, participation and attendance
Where will the money go?
Proceeds will directly support the Voice of Peace event operations and multiple activities including: rental of the venues, literature production, artist
stipends, inviting guest performer(s), video production, food and beverages, traveling expenses, exhibition transportation, theme T shirt printing and other outreach initiatives.
