Tzu Chi volunteers selflessly contribute through a mindset of gratitude, expressing their sincerest care and support to each and every individual in need.
The shared goal of Tzu Chi volunteers is to cultivate sincerity, integrity, faith, and honesty within while exercising kindness, compassion, joy, and selflessness to humanity through concrete actions. Transcending the bounds of race, nationality, language, and religion, they serve the world under the notion that “when others are hurting, we feel their pain; when others suffer, we feel their sorrow”. Not only do the volunteers endeavor to promote the universal value of “Great Love,” they also fully employ the humanitarian spirit of Chinese culture to its utmost.
Tzu Chi Foundation’s “Four Major Missions” consist of Charity, Medicine, Education, and Humanity. Adding the efforts in Bone Marrow Donation, Environmental Protection, Community Volunteerism, and International Relief, the undertakings are now collectively known as “Tzu Chi’s Eight Footprints”.
In 1991, founder of Taiwan-based Tzu Chi Foundation, Master Cheng Yen received The Magsaysay Community Leadership Award from the Philippine Ramon Magsaysay Award Foundation. This is the equivalent of the Nobel Prize in Asia. Along with the award came a prize money of US $30,000 (worth approximately Php825,000 then) which the Master distributed to two beneficiaries - the victims of the China flooding and of the Mt. Pinatubo eruption. The award paved way to the exposure of the Master’s compassion to the Chinese community in the Philippines.

If everyone exercises the love in their heart, then goodness and blessings will accumulate, creating a cycle of kindness.
There is a kind heart in each of us. If inspired, the love in us will be kindled.
Encouraging good deeds is a means to awakening our pure and genuine loving heart.
Caring for others is caring for oneself. Helping others is helping oneself.
Competing for wealth or fame brings affliction. Doing good deeds brings happiness.
Charity is like a well that never runs dry, but one has to first dig the well.
Wholeheartedly perform good deeds and one will be naturally blessed.
There is a fine line between fortunate and unfortunate. Being able to give is fortunate; wishing to receive is unfortunate.
Whether the road is smooth or rough, always be grateful to the people who paved the way for us.
Acts of generosity are perceived as helping others when we ourselves are the true beneficiaries.
The healthy should look after the sick; the untroubled should look after the suffering.
Doing good deeds is one's duty. By giving without expecting reciprocation, one's spirit will be at ease.
Love and gratitude form a cycle of kindness.
Wholeheartedly gather the power of love and create a circle of love.
The more good deeds we do, the more worries we let go of.
One who has a loving heart also has faith in doing good deeds.
Each act of goodness translates to a blessing and reduces suffering in the world.
Tender loving care is found in all corners of the world. Everyone can be a Bodhisattva to help those in need.
Acts of generosity enrich the heart.
Good fortune is to have a kind heart and create blessings.
Get inspired, be mindful, and bring out in everyone. Share resources, make efforts, and gather strength from everyone.
There is great strength when everyone does good deeds. There is good fortune when everyone creates blessings.
Only with a loving heart can there be blessings in life. Only with acts of generosity can there be gains in life.
A kind thought creates a good karmic connection; a kind word brings a sense of joy.
Only when we have discovered our basic goodness can we hope to harness its latent power.
One who gives with expectations of repayment will be miserable if the expectations are not met; even if one receives what one wishes for the happiness gained will be short-lived.
Doing good deeds requires self-confidence in order to dispel all doubts and fear.
Start with good intentions and one will head in the right direction. Make good vows and one will have the strength to contribute.
Poverty is temporary; only by having a loving heart can one experience eternal wealth.
To have love in one's heart is to lead a rich life. To accumulate blessings is to create a kind and beautiful world.
When there are many good people, the power of blessings and kindness is great.
Collectively, Kind thoughts and good deeds from everyone will generate enough merit to triumph over calamities.
Acts of kindness from each one of us are like the nectar of love that can enrich the hearts of many.
People who share a common mission in life need to constantly encourage and inspire one another to maintain their kind thoughts.
Tzu Chi was built on funds collected in a bamboo coin bank. The foundation’s humble beginnings is a reminder that no contribution is too small to create a great impact. Every peso you donate will make a difference. Just the amount you spend on a cup of coffee will go a long way.
