The Heart of a Young Entrepreneur

Riley Burgess is a 9 year old who not only goes to school by day, plays the guitar by night and builds carpentry projects on weekends, but he is also an emerging young entrepreneur.

His mom Jennifer Burgess told us that Riley wanted to make paper snowflakes because he was “looking for a way to make money for himself.”  However, as soon as Riley heard about the Children of Vietnam Benevolent Foundation, Riley immediately increased the asking price for each snowflake (from 3cents each) and has donated all the money earned to help the children in Vietnam.

We are so touched by his compassion.  This young entrepreneur is already making a difference in the world! Thank you Riley!

Thank you!
We are so grateful for your support at our 4th Annual Fundraising Gala on Sept 24th. Together, we raised over $45,000 for the Children of Vietnam Benevolent Foundation! It brings us great joy to know that we can continue helping more children go to school, grant more scholarships, buy more beds, deliver more playground equipment, supply more books/pencils, bicycles, wheelchairs, hearing aids, possibly help build another school and so much more! It was not a small feat this year as we staged the first ever full capacity banquet dedicated to authentic Vietnamese Cuisine, something that is rarely if ever done anywhere in Canada. It took a powerhouse team of talented chefs, dedicated volunteers, generous businesses, and beautiful guests to make the night an incredible success. We thank you!
