PRLog - Aug. 10, 2009 - BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – Young people from around the world will gather in Chinquapin Park on Saturday, August 15th, from 10:00 am -2:30pm to help the Baltimore City Parks and Recreation Department with invasive plant growth removal in the spirit of serving humanity with a culture of kindness, and living for the sake of others.

The Youth Federation for World Peace U.S.A., the Education Association for China’s Tomorrow, Baltimore Rising and the China Society with other local organizations will work with the Department of Recreation and Parks of the City of Baltimore in a local service project at the Chinquapin Park 1100 E. Northern Parkway  in Baltimore City August 15, 2009 10:00am – 2:30pm.

200 young people, including a delegation of Chinese, Africa, Taiwan, and American youth participants, will be removing invasive vegetation and picking up trash in a beautification effort. The hope for this service project is to not only serve the local community, but to also give the participants an opportunity to engage is inter-cultural interaction that highlights the common human spirit of living for others.

This opportunity to bring together the differing groups, of the visiting Chinese young people and the local group of volunteers happens to be during the year of the 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations between US- China. This project provides an opportunity to exemplify the common culture of service in the two nations of China and America.

This project was initiated by Matthew Redmond, 19 years old, of Baltimore City, who was deeply moved by the vision of youth changing the spirit of a nation by getting out and doing something to help others.  His enthusiasm attracted the help of various organizations, a college and then--because he asked-- various persons—pastors, youth camp directors, heads of non-profit groups, and other individuals to start helping too. Students can receive credit hours for community service by participating.  Doing the hot work will be made more enjoyable by the presence of Traditional Chinese Lion Dance from the Wong People Dance group who have performed for Inaugural Celebration parade for President Barack Obama, and free food and water to volunteers who help that morning.
