NWCS PTA Weekly Email 3/17/2011

PTA This week (PTA Blogs:

捐助日本地震海啸的灾民  ( Help the people in Japan in earthquake and tsunami disaster )

一周以来, 全世界都在关注着日本. 巨大自然灾害瞬间夺走了成千上万人的生命, 更多的人无家可归. 直到现在, 灾难仍在继续而且可能扩大. 这是一场全人类的灾难. 作为相对幸运的我们, 对那些受到严重伤害, 和那些仍顽强地拯救自己与他人的人们伸以援手, 是善行, 是责任, 也是帮助我们自己.  PTA代表学校向全校的家庭及朋友呼吁, 大家献出爱心, 给在日本的人们支援.

鉴于操作上(对款项流向的处理及监控) 以及对大家税务方面的考虑, 我们推荐以下慈善网站. 大家可以选择其中的某个机构向其捐款:

其中, 大家最熟悉的是US Red Cross. 为大家方便我们把link放在这里:

这些机构会提供tax deduction的凭证. 如果一些公司可以提供company match则更好.

另外, PTA也会在PTA table 处设立捐款箱, 方便大家小额捐献. 收集后总款项, 我们会通过 SeattleJapanRelief 捐给其中一个机构.

对于不介意tax deduction的捐项, 希望大家来PTA Table. 钱数不在多少, 在于提供爱心. 各位家长, 这也是对孩子的一种品德与爱的教育欢迎你们和孩子一起来, 参与到奉献的活动中来.

最后, 我们希望召集几个愿意volunteer的孩子, 帮我们在PTA table收集大家的捐献. 希望有意的同学给我们发email联系.

To help the people in the recent earthquake and tsunami tragedy in Japan, we recommend the following organizations for you to donate to:

We will also set up a donation box at PTA table when school’s open. If you don’t need to get tax deductions for your donation, you are welcome to donate there. The money we collect will be passed to  We also welcome a couple of volunteers to take care of the donation box. Please contact PTA if you would like to help.

MS Matching Fund Claims
We periodically receive Microsoft Matching Fund for cash donation or volunteer work from Microsoftees. Thank you Microsoft volunteers! The fund will go to PTA and class funds that the volunteers designate to. However sometimes we have difficulty finding the right volunteer for a certain matching fund. Please contact Xu Min at if you would like to check if your fund has arrived or has properly transferred to your class fund.
