Moon Festival Book - Ten Blazing Suns

Finding a well told Moon Festival story is difficult, especially one designed to capture the attention of everyone from toddlers to adults.

                          A team of Hope4China volunteers decided to change that.

With the help of two language experts and 12 illustrators we have created material for a truly unique bilingual book. The team has crossed age and race barriers. Our Illustrators are aged between 13 and 83. They come from families who have adopted from China, Chinese community in the UK and Hope4China friends here in the UK and in China.

                   Have a peep at the work; they are a magnificent bunch of very skilled people.

But Hou Yi’s wife, Chang E, was curious, and found the pill by following a beam of light. She swallowed the pill, and, to her surprise, floated into the air!


There is also some more wonderful art work from Mo Wuming, who created our Wang Wang

To raise funds for Hope4China we need sales, many sales before we know it is viable to print our effort. ‘Ten Blazing Suns’ is priced at £5.99/ $9, which is a bargain for a bilingual book.

Thanks to Sarah for her Marathon Efforts for China's Children

A wee note from Sarah's Just Giving Page from last month.......

"I'm running the Edinburgh 10K for the second time (last time 4 years ago) and hoping to run it a little bit faster this time!
A good friend of mine, Linda, set up a charity a few years ago called Hope4China. She and her husband (+ 3 teenage children) have adopted 2 little girls from China and now raise money to support children in China in foster care and those whose families cannot afford to pay for their education.
Of their 2 Chinese daughters, Eilidh Fu Yi is at school with Olivia and they are great friends, and Siona Rui Rui is her lovely little sister! Coincidentally, this year Linda also started teaching at Buckhaven High School!

Had a great time today in the run-up to the race and got off to a good start going uphill round Arthur's Seat. At about 4K I started to feel quite weak and realised a small bowl of cereal had obviously not been enough this morning! The thought of not finishing within the hour kept me going and I crossed the line with a final push at 59 min 57 sec (beating my last time of 66 mins)!

Please take some time to have a look at the Hope4China website  and please donate what you can to this very worthwhile charity.

Thank you so much
