We woke up early on a Saturday morning and took a break from the Stanford campus. We went to AAH and helped clean up while playing with the animals, including goats, chicken, ducks, rabbits, bunnies, and guinea pigs! Thank you all to those who participated!
We hope to see you all in our future events! ❤️ ❤️

Wow, what an event~ We made so much dumplings and talked about vegetarianism and the meat industry, a conversation elicited by the movie Okja. We learned a lot tonight as well as ate a lot of yummy food. We ended up staying over an hour than planned!
Special thanks to Jasmine who brought extra vegetarian food!
Thanks to everyone who made it to our general body meeting of Winter Quarter! We had a lot of great (vegetarian) food, heard inspiring stories of everyone’s volunteering experience, and made some cool new friends. Hope to see you again at our next event!
This weekend, we had our first on-campus service event! Our volunteers helped out at the Stanford Educational Farm by cleaning, drying, and storing previously harvested pumpkins, arranging flowers bouquets for Christmas wreaths, and planting beans alongside existing crops to enrich the soil. A few of us got showered in the rain halfway through, but the sun came out shortly afterward, shining us all with warmth. Thanks to all who came and volunteered with us!
The weekend before Thanksgiving, a group of us drove to Chico, CA to volunteer at the Disaster Relief Center with Tzu Chi Foundation, which provided aid and care to individuals and families impacted by the Camp Fire, the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California’s history. Our volunteers helped impacted parties register for emergency cash aid and provided blankets to displaced persons in need of warm shelter.
Thanks to everyone who made it to our first flower arrangement workshop, taught by our beloved Tzuchi advisor, Munya Su! In this workshop, we learned about the history of flower arrangement and the ways we can practice mindfulness while making our bouquets, which we then gifted to members of the Stanford janitorial staff. As a group, we then discussed ways to practice mindfulness and embrace our cultural heritage in the diverse and fast-paced world we live in today.
