From China to Paris with Love: Paint and Send Wishes to Pandas

When I received an email with the subject of “panda,” I immediately became excited. FedEx will again be flying two giant pandas, our national treasure. The pandas, Huan Huan and Yuan Zi, will be the Chinese culture ambassadors to France. Fortunately, as FedEx employees, we can ask our children to send their best wishes to the pandas through drawings and paintings.
 
In order to engage more children in this meaningful activity, we went to Shanghai Pudong Foreign Language Primary School and conducted an activity called “Paint and Send Wishes to Pandas”. The activity took place in a classroom with 40 students. All the students finished their paintings in one hour and the teacher asked the students to share their wishes in either French or Chinese.
 
All the paintings from the students will be flown to France aboard the FedEx Panda Express. I believe the wishes of the kids will always be with Huan Huan and Yuan Zi.

Lorsque j’ai reçu un e-mail avec le terme « panda » en objet, j’ai tout de suite été enthousiaste. FedEx transportera à nouveau deux pandas géants : notre trésor national. Les pandas Huan Huan et Yuan Zi seront les ambassadeurs de la culture chinoise en France. En tant qu'employés de FedEx, nous avons la chance de pouvoir demander à nos enfants d’envoyer leurs meilleurs vœux aux pandas sous forme de dessins et de peintures.

Pour qu’un maximum d’enfants participent à cette activité, nous sommes allés à l’école primaire Shanghai Pudong Foreign Language et nous avons proposé une activité appelée « Peindre et envoyer ses vœux aux pandas ». L’activité a été organisée dans une classe de 40 élèves. Ils ont tous fini leur peinture en une heure, et l’instituteur leur a demandé d'écrire leurs vœux en Français ou en Chinois.

Toutes les peintures des élèves seront envoyées en France à bord du FedEx Panda Express. Je crois que les pensées des enfants seront toujours avec Huan Huan et Yuan Zi.
