On August 5th, the “6th World Cup Youth Live Painting Competition” and “Global donation of one dollar per year for the world’s poor children” events were held at the Olympic Oval in Vancouver, Canada. In support of UNICEF Canada since 2012, the Youth World Cup Live Painting Competition is a global charity event  hosted by Canada Youth Arts Development Foundation. The event aims to raise not only awareness for vulnerable children, but also to provide a platform to help and give them a better future.

Since 2012, supporters of this event have made an incredible difference in the lives of vulnerable children through UNICEF’s School-in-a-box program. This program is extremely valuable as it ensures children in emergencies have the opportunity to continue learning through the provision of a kit containing supplies and materials for one teacher and up to 40 students.

Yun Jia Li, president of the Canadian Youth Funding Association (CYFA), assisted in the organization of the event as the Director of Marketing. She delivered a very inspirational speech thanking the organizer, the Canadian Youth Art Development Foundation, and the hard work of the Vancouver Superstar Stage Art Institute to make this worldwide event successful. In addition to her thanks, she also spoke about our responsibility to give back to the more vulnerable and less fortunate of the world. Yun Jia Li also organized a group of volunteers from the CYFA to participate in the event and also provide support where needed. The volunteer team demonstrated the spirit of CYFA with their enthusiasm and hard work! These volunteers were also promoting CYFA’s annual Business Proposal Competition in support of UNICEF’s School-In-a-Box. To date, CYFA has raised a total of $2500 for the cause.

This global event was highly supported by all three levels of the Canadian government. The three levels of government officials, including Prime Minister Trudeau, sent congratulatory letters in support of the event. Prime Minister Trudeau thanked all the attendees for supporting this valuable cause and congratulated all of the artists who participated in the competition.

8月5日,“第六届世界杯青少年现场绘画大赛”暨“全球每人每年为世界贫困儿童捐赠一元钱”大型公益活动在加拿大温哥华冬奥馆举行。这项活动是2012年发起的由联合国儿童基金会合作参与支持的“世界杯绘画大赛,帮助世界贫困儿童的全球活动”,旨在通过“大赛”的平台,让全世界来关注、帮助少年儿童的成长,用“每人每年为世界贫困儿童捐一元钱”的号召,来推动这一活动在全球的开展,使世界贫困儿童现状得以逐步地改善。

加拿大青少年基金会会长李蕴佳出席了活动。会上她在致辞中说到,感谢主办方加拿大青少年艺术发展基金会,承办方温哥华巨星舞台艺术学院所做的辛勤工作,使这项受联合国资助的全世界青少年活动取得成功。 她还说到:作为CYFA的主席,我想多说几句话。我们是一个致力于鼓励青年成为领导者并为他们提供发展自己的优势,商业意识和自信的平台的组织。在过去的几个月里,我通过2018年的CYFA商业竞赛,为联合国的School-in-a-Box项目做出了贡献。在我的一生中,我很幸运能够上学,而且我相信今天在座的很多人都可以。但是,在世界上许多地方并非如此,他们别说上学了,他们需要想,下一顿饭在哪里?他们能否货到明天?联合国儿童基金会的“School-in-a-Box”就是为不幸的地区的青少年提供了上学的机会。我们有责任尽我们所能去支持那些不幸的人。我很荣幸能够为发展中国家的青年提供这样一个令人惊叹的计划,我很高兴你们所有人今天都在这里支持它。在您的支持下,我们将共同帮助改善全世界青少年的生活。

本次大赛得到了加拿大三级政府的大力支持,包括特鲁多总理在内的三级政府要员纷纷为大赛发来贺信,特鲁多总理感谢所有出席的人支持这一有价值的事业,祝贺参赛的艺术家取得成功! 加拿大艺术发展基金会主席孟炜章、温哥华巨星舞台艺术学院创办人徐旭红、到场嘉宾还有省议员Linda Reid 代表Elsa Wong、列治文市议员、代市长区泽光、列治文学务委员何锦荣、列治文市议员候选人刘海、温哥华当地知名画家Donna Webber、视觉艺术家、设计师、艺术指导老师Maryam Hatami等等。他们在发言中盛赞大赛活动,为选手们加油。

在本次活动中,李蕴嘉会长还组织了加拿大青少年基金会参加商业大赛的同学组成义工小组,全程参与本次绘画大赛,为活动提供相关的服务。义工团队以高昂的热情与高效的工作展现了加拿大青少年基金会的精神面貌!  大家在活动中也极大地开阔了眼界,加强团队协作能力以及服务意识。支持联合国儿童基金会的“School-in-a-Box”活动而开展的商业大赛正在报名之中。(报名可在微信下方留下联系方式)。   本次绘画大赛吸引了来自于加拿大、美国、中国、法国等36个国家和地区数万名选手参加,受到社会各界的广泛关注。 大赛决赛现场根据选手年龄分为三组:儿童组(5-12岁),少年组(13-17岁),青年组(18-25岁),并围绕友谊、环保、梦想三大主题进行认真的绘画创作。 认真聆听 大赛颁奖典礼暨闭幕仪式将于8月11日下午1:30在加拿大温哥华冬奥馆举行。届时,大赛组委会将公布各组别获奖选手名单,并由联合国大使亲自颁奖。各国政要和代表也将出席该颁奖典礼。
