To Our China Care Bruins Family: As we enter our last quarter of this year at UCLA, we are also entering into our last quarter of China Care Bruins! BUT it’s not really the end! (whew) This quarter, look forward to a big fundraising event we’re reviving – the Garage Sale! -, some new and exciting mentorship events planned and organized by incoming Mentorship directors; a Parent Mentorship Outreach event tailored to give you an opportunity for networking; and last but not least, our 2nd Annual Awareness Event complete with live performances and some interesting information about China’s adoption issues. We hope that this quarter brings you all closer to CCB – we will even have fun social events planned so we look forward to seeing everyone there! CCB Love, LiAnn & Brian Co-Presidents 2009-2010

Outreach & education

What are you going to do with your major? This is probably one of the most common questions people ask college students like us. Whether you are a Neuroscience or English major, most of us aren't sure and that's perfectly fine. However, such a question brings up an important part of college - yes, beyond the midterms and frat parties and Spring Sing - that we will have to face sometime, the part of college that requires us to explore career options and compete in the real world. This Thursday, Jeri, the former President of FCC, will be presenting a workshop to help all the Big Buddies with all the necessities of preparing for a career: learning interview and resume tips, exploring career options and resources offered by the FCC parents. This is exclusively for you Big Buddies so take advantage of it! We will also be having a presentation by Big Buddies who have gotten internships through their connection with CCB and FCC. This is a learning and networking experience you can't miss! - Eric Ku, Outreach Director

Our China Care Youth and Little Programs came together for fun-filled buddy event on April 11th. The buddies enjoyed creating scrumptious snacks at our many fantabulous food stations, such as mini pizzas, apples and dip, and ants on a log. The little, youth, and big buddies wowed us with their culinary creations and enjoyed having a picnic with all of their gourmet snacks. In addition to the food fun, the buddies enjoyed playing at our giant bubble station, rubbing on temporary tattoos, tossing Frisbees, and participating in the water balloon toss. The prize for winning the balloon toss? Getting a free shot to throw a water balloon at the Little Program Coordinator of their choice! Jon was the chosen one, and many little buddies used the extra water balloons in the same fashion, accompanied by screams of laughter and excitement.

or anything else that you can donate will be greatly appreciated. As for the sale... Our May 2nd buddy event will be led by next year's program When: Saturday May 8 Where: The house of coordinators, and we can't wait to see what they come up with.
