Orange County Shorinji Kempo Branch held their Charity Bazar from March 15-19th, 2018. Prior to the Bazar starting a 1 hour Shorinji Kempo practice session was held. All of the parents/students were very eager to finish practice so they could start buying their items. Many students brought in items ranging from $0.25 cents to $20. Robots, watches, remote control toys, skateboards, and more were sold at the bazar, and one of the tables had many Shorinji Kempo goods from Ozaki Corporation which were also a big hit!!!
Watching the students/parents smiling and laughing when buying their items was a pivotal point knowing that the money will be going to help others in need. $1,158 was raised for a local charity. Giving back to the community in which we live in is at the heart of Shorinji Kempo studies. “Half for one's own happiness, and half for the happiness of others”.
