It is our privilege to make booklets to highlight altruistic beauty, compassion and enthusiasm of youth from the United States of America, China, Hong Kong and Taiwan who serve their communities to help people in need. It is hopeful that through the bilingual booklets, they will share, learn and encourage each other so that the virtue of good deeds will continue to flourish and make this world a better place.

Win-Win Community 雙贏社區
BPAF encourages young people to use their spare time to serve as a bridge in their communities. Through participation in the following activities youth could experience growth and create a Win-Win situation for themselves and the entire community.
Supporting Farmers 支持農民
Food is a basic need for livelihood of human beings. Farmers are the biggest contributors to the production of food.
Youth could participate in service-learning programs designed by local farms, learning hands-on farm skills, understanding the vital role that farmers play in our society, and ultimately forming an appreciation for the daily food at the dining table. Youth could donate their produce or purchase products from farmers and distribute to those in need.
Expressing Gratitude to Community Heroes 向社區英雄致謝
Safety of living is to guarantee the lives and property of all people. When there are fires and explosions, most people flee and run in the opposite direction. Firefighters, however, run towards them.
Police officers put themselves on the front line of dangerous and traumatic events. A simple "Thank you" to these heroes could lessen the emotional burden and brighten them up. In addition, there are volunteers who join the neighborhood watch program, share the workload at busy police stations, and serve as a second pair of eyes and ears to help the police.
Young people could give thank-you notes or small gifts to these heroes to express gratitude and appreciation for their services.
Helping People in Need 幫助弱勢群體
People who live in a caring community watch out for each other and help those in need, which makes the community harmonious. Youth could launch activities such as visit a nursing home to give the elderly a hand, or donate blankets to a homeless shelter, volunteer at a soup kitchen, tutor children during or after school, or anything else to make their community a better place.
