Bricks Are Stacking Up, Shaping VEYM's Future
In order to help parents and donors to understand more about VEYM's goals and needs, the "One Brick for VEYM" campaign has been publicizing through various Vietnamese Catholic media outlets (TV, radio, internet, and newspaper) throughout the country. With the spirit of giving, the VEYM-USA invites all members, from các em Ấu Nhi to các Cha Tuyên Úy, and all families of VEYM, to contribute one brick – $25 – to support the education of the youth, expansion of our Movement, and build the Church and society.
MANY THANKS to everyone who helped with the distribution of the phase II "Brick Campaign" flyers. A SPECIAL THANK YOU to those who donated BRICKS online, checks or cash. Also, THANK YOU to those who contributed through volunteerism, Pro Bono Service, Matching Gifts, and Philanthropic Leverage. PT/TNTT/VN/HK is indebted to your generosity. THANK YOU!

THANK YOU FOR SHARING CHRIST!!!
While apostolic works are a part of our everyday lives, the VEYM National Day of Apostolic Works (NDAW) brings us together to celebrate our call to be apostles. Our first NDAW did just that as hundreds of members across the country got out into their communities, bringing Christ's love to those in need. Participation in the kick-off day definitely exceeded expectations.
The National Executive Committee would like to express our heartfelt thanks to all participants from 8 regions in the first NDAW kick-off day, and we look forward to seeing more participants in coming weeks!!! Please share your event photos and videos to the PT Tntt VN HK Facebook page so that we can pray and celebrate with you and your members as you get out to volunteer!
You can continue to keep up the NDAW spirit by ordering a t-shirt and casting your vote! Thank you to those of you who have already bought NDAW t-shirts! As of today, $587 ($1 from each t-shirt sold) is in the TNTT charity fund that will go to a non-profit organization that is sharing Christ in special ways through its work. Voting for the 3 non-profit organizations has been open. Follow the link http://tinyurl.com/ndo4yy4 to read more about them and voice your choice. The organization with the most votes at the end of the voting period will receive the donation from our NDAW charity fund.
Plenty of t-shirts are still available if you want to do your part to grow the charity fund! Put your order in now – just $6 for a great shirt that supports a great cause! Please contact TNTT Store ASAP to get yours. We still have the ongoing promotion: FREE shipping on orders of 10+. In Stock: XL: 32, L:79, M:138, S:20, Youth L: 53, Youth M: 34.
If you haven’t planned your NDAW activity yet, no worries! December 6 was the kick-off day, but we encourage you to plan a volunteer day for your members on any other day that’s more convenient for your members. Just be sure to register your event with us at http://tinyurl.com/tnttngaylamviectongdo, so that we can celebrate with your members when they do get out and volunteer.

Family Convention 2015
It's only 286 days away from this world wide event. The last gathering was June 2012, held in Milan, Italy. The stats were 7,000 people at the conference, 350,000 people at the Festival of Families, and a total of about one million people at the Papal Mass the Sunday following the event.
This time, with the theme of "Love Is Our Mission: Family Fully Alive," it will be in Philadelphia, PA - in the USA, our backyard! There will not be any better opportunity to travel to this important event! With little cost and it helps reaffirm the core values of family and brought forth new teachings on the importance of family in society. This event is open for all families: Trợ Tá, Huynh Trưởng, even single ones (Why not, right?) Visit www.worldmeeting2015.org for more info. A package for Vietnamese families is also available through Chương Trình Thăng Tiến Hôn Nhân Gia Đình Hải Ngoại. Click to read it Việt.
