The Zonta Club of Kaohsiung YuHsiuan in Taiwan, District 31, recently turned 25 years old, one-quarter of Zonta International’s 100 years.
In honor of the two anniversaries, the club hosted “Hundred for Hundreds for Centennial Zonta,” a fundraiser that called on 100 people to donate US$100 each. The goal was to raise US$10,000 and donate it to Zonta International Foundation’s Endowment Fund to support the Centennial Anniversary Endowment Campaign.
In the three weeks leading up to the fundraiser, club members worked around the clock using state-of-the-art telecommunication applications (e.g. Line) to introduce Zonta and pitch the Centennial Anniversary Endowment Campaign to their friends, families and associates.
Withstanding enervation and with great perseverance, donations came flooding in. In total, they raised US$26,000 from 182 participants (including 153 people each donating US$100 and two donations of US$11,000).
During the celebration, the club not only introduced their services and activities, but also promoted and publicized Zonta International’s 100-year history, the Zonta International Foundation, celebrities, international service, education programs and media publications to the greater Kaohsiung area!
The club’s “Hundred for Hundreds” activity album was filled with photos and gratitude cards, and marked an unforgettable memory in our hearts.
The Zonta Club of Kaohsiung YuHsiuan’s members believe that each act of kindness will reverberate to women and girls every corner of the world, pave the way for a brighter and more empathetic future, and leave a gleaming impression on the illustrious history of the club.
