At the festival, TFish focused on four main causes: poverty relief/education, volunteerism, community development, and medical care. Each cause was presented through the following NGOs: Sahaya International, O'Keefe Family Center, Bayshore Christian Ministries (BCM), and Little Red Scarf.
Joined by representatives of the NGOs and East Villagers, TFish also unveiled its ongoing "Color a Fish" campaign where festival attendees were invited to color a paper fish. For every fish colored, the Chao Foundation donated $1 to sponsored partners of TFish. 363 fishes were colored during the two days, raising a total of $363. The Chao Foundation donated $121 to Sahaya International, $121 to BCM, and $121 to O'Keefe Family Center.
In addition to the "Color a Fish" project, TFish showcased artwork done by past and current interns that portrayed human trafficking in East Asia as well as two pieces done by Dr. Chung Truong of Sahaya Vietnam.
TFish will continue its "Color a Fish" campaign at the Nihonmachi Street Fair in San Francisco on August 3 and 4 from 11am to 6pm.
