Making of CRSS Calendar 2013

The CRSS calendar 2013 was completed and delivered to our Macau office in October. These calendars were made by the people affected by HIV, volunteers and sisters in our Loving Care Center in Hongjiang, Hunan.
The Calendar was made with more than 10 steps, these include: design the calendar, and handover to the printing shop to print the paper calendar; transport the bamboo to the center; hand-weave the Chinese knot; cut-off the skin from the bamboo and cut into small sections according to the knot of the bamboo; cut the rounded bamboo section into halves, soak into limewater to avoid bugs, wash and dry; polish the bamboo; imprint the words and edges; select the good paper calendar; spray, paint and dry the bamboo; cut hallow the Chinese character “信”(Faith); install the paper calendar with the bamboo; count the finished product; packaging; place the packages into boxes and perform quality inspection; seal the boxes, weight and mail out.
The 2013 calendars will be sent to our benefactors and friends in batches in early December with our newsletter “Encounter” and hopefully to be received in time before the year end.
