A Brand New Goal - An Introduction to Lilysilk's Charity Program
Lilysilk was originally founded two goals in mind: the goal to bring silky comfort to the world at affordable prices, and the goal to improve the standard of living for silk farmer and workers. In the 4 years since our founding, we have come a long way in realizing these two goals. However, we feel that, as we have become more prosperous, there is a heavier social responsibility that we, as a successful (albeit still small) business organization should shoulder. This is why we have designed our charity program in order to better give back to the society that fed and nourished us.
As we have just started our charity program, there are a lot of details to be ironed out. Currently we have decided to focus our efforts on the less fortunate children in China's poorer areas by donating to organizations that specialize in providing better child care to remote rural areas that includes better schooling, better health care, and better living and transportation conditions for children.
Our Promise - Small Charity Great Love
We have schedules to donate much more in the near future. For every purchase made, Lilysilk will donate $1 USD into fund pool. Lilysilk will donate the money to the professional charity organizations that dedicate to resolving youth welfare.
If you have any ideas or suggestions regarding our charity program, please feel free to contact us at [email protected]. Any advice/suggestion is welcome.

China Song Ching Ling Foundation- "Loving Dictionary" Donation Project
In China, primary school students from second grade above are required by state teaching curriculum to have their own dictionary. However, some students from rural areas, especially those in Guangxi province, experience great difficulties in studying since they are unable to acquire quality dictionaries due to personal financial issues and rampant piracy problems. Media reports on this situation have garnered the attention of various groups of people and prompted selfless donations from across the country.
In order to provide a better channel for those who wish to donate towards this cause, China Song Ching Ling Foundation has created the Primary Students Dictionary Fund. All donations made to this fund shall be used solely for the purpose of purchasing Xinhua dictionaries and the subsequent distribution to primary schools that are in need of such assistance.
