Celebrate the Year of the Tiger and Support Asian Health Research Education!
Happy Year of the Tiger! The Omicron surge unfortunately prevents us from bringing back the popular Palo Alto Chinese New Year Fair this year. Therefore, WizChinese (wizchinese.org) is reinventing this year’s Chinese New Year celebration by fundraising for Stanford Center for Asian Health Research and Education (https://med.stanford.edu/care.html). The Asian community in Santa Clara makes up more than one third of the total population, yet very little attention has been paid to Asian health research. As a thank you gift to participants of the fundraising, WizChinese will be giving away some very tasty Chinese New Year treats:
Donors of >$100 will each receive a box of exquisite Yunnan style dim sum valued at $29;
Donors of $50 to $99 will each receive a bottle of delicious sauce valued at $12;
Donors of >$20 will be entered into a raffle. Each winner will get a Stanford CARE Mug or the gift certificate ($10) of Dumpling City.
100% of your donation will go to the Stanford Center for Asian American Health Research and Education (Stanford CARE). To make your donation, please PayPal email@example.com. If you would like a tax-deductable letter, please include your address in the note section during your PayPal transaction. We will contact you via email on how to receive your gift.
This campaign ends on Feb. 20, 2022.
Thank You and Have A Prosperous 2022!

Serving Palo Alto Chinese Community
WizChinese is an organization serving Chinese families who live in Palo Alto. Our mission is to facilitate the integration of Chinese immigrants with local communities through organizing community building events, partnering with local non-profit organizations, and sharing information and experiences.
Palo Alto Chinese Parents’ Club (PACPC), operating under WizChinese since 2014, provides a platform for the Chinese parents to form strong connections through its social and educational events, school involvement, and resource sharing.
Through its flagship program of the annual Palo Alto Chinese New Year Fair, first inaugurated in 2016, WizChinese promotes cultural exchange and friendship among residents of different backgrounds and contributes to the vibrancy and health of our diverse community.
WizChinese is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and was founded in February 2014 by Palo Alto residents Debra Cen and Amy Yang. Since its inception, WizChinese has been an active contributor and partner in the community.
You can communicate with WizChinese with the email address, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fighting Against Coronavirus
To fight the Coronavirus pandemic, WizChinese started a fundraising campaign in February initially for supporting Wuhan doctors and nurses. With the fast recovery of Wuhan from the pandemic and the urgent need of masks in our community, WizChinese repurposed the fund to purchase masks from China to donate to our community. In addition, WizChinese also encouraged the Chinese community to donate masks directly to their neighbors or through WizChinese for distributing to our community.
We have raised $5800, and spent $3800 to purchase 6000 surgical masks and donated $2000 in check to PTAC’s COVID-19 Relief Fund. We also received 11900 surgical masks and 820 KN95. That generates a total of 18,720 masks for donation.
So far, WizChinese has distributed the masks to the following organizations or public health facilities:
Ravenwood Family Health Center in East Palo Alto,
Palo Alto Medical Foundation,
Palo Alto University Rotary Club,
EPA Police Department,
Sequoias Living Senior Center
Mark Zuckerberg Hospital

The annual Palo Alto CNY Fair celebrates Chinese culture, promotes friendship among residents of different backgrounds and contributes to the vibrancy and health of our diverse community.
Initiated by our creative and dedicated community members, these special projects are created to better serve the community.
