Dear Friends,

It has been a wonderful 4 years since we started the GMV Foundation in 2008.  Time has gone by extremely fast.  We’ve experienced difficulties as well as much joy, and have grown a lot in the process.

We are extremely appreciative of all the help and support everyone has given us.  Your contributions have helped many children receive an education who otherwise would not have had this opportunity.  In 2008, the first year of the foundation, we supported 11 students and that number has grown every year since.  We are currently supporting a total of 42 students; 8 in elementary school, 24 in middle school, and 10 in high school.  In addition, in 2011 three students supported by the foundation graduated from high school and are now attending university.

I often receive short letters and messages from the students we support and I would like to share one such message that I found particularly touching.

“Dear Uncle Sun, I’m very grateful for the help you’ve given me.  I am passing all of my classes and getting good grades.  In the future if I have the opportunity I will also help others the way you’ve helped me.”

This message is from a high school senior supported by the foundation and it warmed my heart to see that we are not only helping these children receive the education they need, but that these students also want to give back to others, which is something very important for all of us to do.

I will be traveling to China over the winter to meet with children currently receiving foundation support and to look for opportunities to support additional students.

Thank you again for all the support you have given to the foundation.

Sincerely,

Da-Jin Sun, President
