For millennia, Chinese communities have celebrated the Mid-Autumn Festival as a way to give thanks for the harvest and gather with family. It is also a time to work toward a better tomorrow, whatever difficulties there may be today.
In honor of this ancient tradition, we would like to express our gratitude to our extended Save Cantonese family—to people all around the world who are working to Save Cantonese in their local communities.
To those of you who have dedicated your time, labor, and tears toward the cause of preserving Cantonese language and culture: THANK YOU. You sow the seeds so that future generations may benefit. Thank you for showing up, for speaking up, and for putting your passion toward our important cause. Your work will not be forgotten.
We know that this hard work can sometimes come at great personal cost. Though our circumstances may differ, you are not alone in your efforts. We see you, and we are with you in spirit. And we will do our best to carry this torch forward.
Thank you for being on Team Cantonese.
