Willimantic, Conn. - Eastern Connecticut State University will host GivingBackLife from 6-8 p.m. on Oct. 16 in the Student Center Theatre.
Giving Back Life is an organization that works with and assists the underprivileged and orphaned children of China. Founder of the organization, Daniel Lui, will share his experiences working with the children of China and talk about the history and mission of GivingBackLife. The event will culminate with an activity that captures the essence and difficulties of being an orphan in rural China.
"GivingBackLife may be young, but we are going to carry with us a fresh outlook on making a difference in the world in which we live," said Liu, when describing the mission statement of his organization. "We are ambitious, we are passionate, we care dearly about people, and we realize that big things cannot be accomplished alone; however, if we can collectively do small things with great love, as Mother Teresa once said, there is no reason why we can't change the world."
