Mourning for Mr.Tao Shing Pee

Translated by George Wang  

Dear Mildred,

I was saddened by the news of Mr. Tao's demise. It stirs up many profound memories I had with him. In 2006, I visited him in Los Angeles. He was standing by the door already, waiting for me. At ninety years old, he was energetic and high-spirited. I had an inspiring conversation with him.

Mr. Tao recounted his life encounters in his autobiography "The Life Stories of Tao Shing Pee". With great foresights and determination, he grew his business to a legendary success. I admire the insights and wisdom he presented through those anecdotes.

He emphasized the important role of business in promoting education. He believed that education and entrepreneurship are the drivers for socio-economic development in rural China. Thus, he founded "Tao Shing Pee Education Foundation". The Foundation has sent many rural students to colleges and changed their lives forever.

Since 2007, 320 Peach students have benefitted from the "Peeli Scholarship Program". The Peach-Peeli student is granted a scholarship of RMB5,000 each year, for the four years of college. Furthermore, Mr.Tao sponsored another two hundred Peach students under his own personal account. Out of the 520 Peach-Peeli students, 449 have graduated and established themselves in various fields. Adding the expanded family members of these scholarship recipients, we can safely say that Mr. Tao has lifted the lives of over 10,000 rural people.

Mr. Tao was a legendary businessman, an exemplary giant in the field of philanthropy. His impacts are immense and everlasting. People will always remember him for his generosity and kindness.

My staff and I would like to extend our deepest regards and gratitude to you. His passing leaves a gap in all of our lives.
