    The Volunteer Corps of the Hanyang University Alumni(VCHUA) held its charity bazaar titled “Santa Market in Early Summer,” at Hanyang University(HYU) on May 15, 2013. This special occasion was held to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the creation of VCHUA, the organization established for the “practicing of love” by the alumni of HYU. VCHUA collected a donation from Hanyangians from April 1 to May 9. Moreover, all the profits from this bazaar will be donated to children in Sihanoukvile, Cambodia, as well as to low-income families in the Seongdong-gu area. 
    Choi Jung-ju who is in charge of this event said, “We wanted to plan something meaningful to celebrate the first anniversary of VCHUA. Thus, we decided to hold a charity bazaar on the 74th anniversary of HYU.” She added, “The name of this bazaar has a special meaning; children love Santa Claus because he gives them special presents. So we thought that this year everyone can be Santa Claus by making a donation, which will eventually go to the children. For this reason, we named this event ‘Santa Market in Early Summer.”’
    This bazaar also included a variety programs such as magic shows, a Nanta performence, and face painting. Choi Su-ha, a Freshman majoring in Clothing & Textiles, said, “There are lots of programs being offered and it’s a great thing because people are encouraged to stay much longer. I didn’t even know this bazaar exists before and never thought about dropping by. However, I couldn’t help but coming here when I saw many exciting programs going on.”
     The bazaar is being planned to take place every year on the school’s anniversary. Choi Jung-ju said, “Most people consider voluntary service as a big task that they can’t be done easily. However, even the smallest work can be beneficial to someone in need. For example, worn clothes that people easily throw away can be recycled into warm clothes for needy children in Cambodia.”
