Launch The Secret Message Boats to the Mothers Around the World!

Launch The Secret Message Boats to the Mothers Around the World!

Hello, MBL volunteers and supporters,

MBL and the Essex Festival in the UK have teamed up and will launch an exciting event: The Secret Message Boats to the Mothers Around the World. It would be wonderful if your children, their friends, or classmates be part of it!

The Essex Festival will be held in March 2019. During the festival, 1,000 paper boats will be displayed. At the closing ceremony, these boats will be set sail in the sea. These paper boats are hand-folded by children from China and Britain, each carrying a  “whisper” or a secret message the child has written to his or her mother. (The message will be written on the back of the paper before the paper is folded into a boat.) MBL Volunteers in London will add MBL logo stickers to the boats.

How to fold a paper boat?

Please use a Chinese map to make a boat. Here is the instruction.

  • Paper boat size: Length between 10 – 30cm
  • Before folding, please write a message on the back of the map (either in Chinese or English).

Where to send the boats?

  • If you live in China, please send the paper boats (as many as possible, ideally more than 200 in each package) to the following address before January 3, 2019, so that our volunteer Pan Tong can bring them to London on January 6.
