Remember feeling moved by the prospect of inspiring kids and teens adopted from China? Remember wishing for a "Little Sib" to love and mentor for a day of bonding and fun? Remember the prestige and glory of glittery crafts and rainbow face-paints? Remember the Chinese Adopted Siblings Program for Youth (CASPY)?

Of course you do! With our Saturday, April 18th CASPY Day approaching, we'd like to request the gift of your interest in these children again. Come to WLH for an afternoon of free lunch + t-shirt, Chinese culture, and games 'n prizes! Many Chinese adoptees grow up with little or no exposure to Chinese culture and the Asian-American community, so early, positive exposure can be very formative. You can make a real impact on the Chinese adoptee community by being an amazing role model to our kids and teens!

Mark your calendars! Keep an eye peeled for our "Big Sib" and "volunteer" sign-up forms. Drown your spring stress with kids' laughter and the noble calling of community service. Combat productivity with us on CASPY Day and lift a few moods.

We hope to meet every one of you!

CASPY Love,

Aretha and Charlotte CASPY Co-Coordinators 2015

CASPY Board 2015 is looking for people who are interested in working with and for children on generating fun and warmth in the form of crafts, games, and bonding with Yalies!

Each year, our Kids Program Committee plans the activities for 100+ adopted Chinese children from all around the Tri-State area to engage them with their Chinese background, which encompasses a vibrant and rich culture that they might not be exposed to otherwise.

If you love playing with adorable Chinese children and sharing your passion for Chinese culture, join the Kids Program Committee to make their visit to Yale a truly memorable experience! This includes planning and implementing 10 rooms of activities, plus outdoor activities. Indoor activities usually include face painting, chalk drawing, calligraphy, photo booth, a zodiac related craft, and a Chinese play for the coordinators to perform.

Please contact Chelsea Guo at qiaozhi.guo@yale.edu if you are interested in joining.
