Learn more about the legend of the Tiger.

2022 is a year of the Tiger, starting from Feb. 1st, 2022 and ending on Jan. 21st, 2023. It is a Water Tiger Year. The Tiger is known as the king of all beasts in China. The zodiac sign Tiger is a symbol of strength, exorcising evils, and braveness. Many Chinese kids wear hats or shoes with a tiger image for good luck (source).

"The Little Year": Donate your Winter Cleaning items | WED. JANUARY 26

JACK'S CORNER - FROM 11 AM TO 1 PM

The Little Year (小年 / xiǎo nián) marks the beginning of the preparation for the Lunar New Year. From this day, people begin to prepare goods, clean house, pray to the stove god, etc. People carry out a ‘winter-cleaning’ of their houses to "sweep away the dust", and represents a wish to put away old things, bid farewell to the old year, and welcome in the New Year. 

Start off the year with your very own winter cleaning and come join the Center for Global Engagement to drop off any items (e.g., clothing, shoes, backpacks, etc.) that are in good condition but  you would like to give away.

If you cannot drop off on Wednesday, you can stop by CGE to donate your items through February 15, Mon-Fri between 8am-5pm. Contact global@callutheran.edu with any questions. 

Embrace a new year and new you! Donations will be redistributed to a local charity association.
