A number of very generous and respectable tea companies, including Imperial Tea Court, Jaya Teas, Tea Classics/Hancha Tea, Rishi Tea, Eco-Prima Tea, The Meaning of Tea, Den’s Tea, and Teaism, have donated tea, tea-related products and other items to an auction and event to raise funds for the work that HandReach.org is doing with its Children’s Healing Initiative.
“Auction of the World’s Finest Teas” consists of a live auction, which will take place November 18th, from 7:00pm to 9:00pm at Teaism in Washington, DC and an eBay charity auction, which anyone can participate in by placing bids, up until the start of the live auction tomorrow evening. This is an opportunity to purchase some very special teas and also to provide aid to an organization involved in some valuable work.
The full description of the event from HandReach.org’s website:
“HandReach’s first annual tea auction benefits the Children’s Healing Initiative, an international medical project working to develop infrastructure supporting the treatment of young trauma survivors in tea-producing regions of the world.
The event will feature appearances by luminaries from the international tea community, fabulous live music, sampling of some of the world’s finest teas, cocktails and light refreshments, and a chance to network with extraordinary people from all over the world.
All proceeds from the event will support bringing expertise and resources to provide world-class acute, reconstructive, and psychosocial care for child survivors of debilitating trauma injuries for whom needed medical care is out of reach.”
I was alerted to this event by a post on Walker Tea Review.

Allow me to introduce you to your new favourite show to binge watch on Netflix. Kim’s Convenience is a CBC comedy about a Korean-Canadian family running a convenience store in downtown Toronto. The sitcom is based on Ins Choi’s award-winning play. The moment I began watching the show I instantly regretted not doing so sooner. I actually started watching Kim’s Convenience because of an interaction on this Instagram post that featured Janet, played by the hilarious Andrea Bang, chugging a mug of tea. Andrea Bang was born and raised in Burnaby, B.C and like her character, she grew up around tea. In fact, tea plays a huge role in her acting career today. At the tea table Andrea opened up about her childhood tea moments, her favourite steeps, which character from Kim’s Convenience she would share a cup of tea with and more.
THE SECRET SALCE BEHIND FUND SELECTION
Two Types of Major College scholarships
Just before we get in composition, let me define what i’m saying by a ‘major’ scholarship. You can find two major types We are focusing on. The foremost is the kind that promises more than just bucks. These free college funding also include unique mentoring, enrichment experiences, management development, study opportunities, embraced experiences by using a cohort connected with fellow historians, and/or entrance to an is in program. Any some of these activities might be marketed in addition to a whole (or close full) journey to college. Could possibly be anywhere from some to 52 scholarships to go around for each inbound class in various colleges in the United States (the Stamps President’s Scholarship from Georgia Tech falls straight into this category).
The second type scholarship is one of expensive or perhaps most exclusive scholarship within a particular university. It’s not unconventional to find some or 20 of these scholarships or grants sitting there with the students considered ‘the good the best’ in the newly arriving class. Requirements for line is often very scholastically focused, but is not exclusively. Bonuses beyond financing for the cost of attendance usually are hit or miss, typically miss (though sometimes these come with admission to an recognizes program).
