Novel Destinations Travels to China

Presenting “The Chinese Kids Project,” a slideshow by Ron Deady, a retired military and commercial pilot. He started a Foundation in China in 2006 called The Chinese Kids Project in Yunnan Province, in the town of Xundian. He travels to China each year, selects recipients for a “scholarship,” and awards 20 children with a red envelope to assist them financially. Another effort buys books to build a library for grade-schoolers. The story and photos relate how the projects started and progress is an interesting one, full of Chinese intrigue, humor, and hope for better detente.
