錢,要給需要的人才有用!!

堪稱台灣之光的賣菜英雄 - 陳樹菊阿嬤,因為50年來靠著賣菜所得,不斷捐款,前前後後卻捐出了台幣近1000萬元,幫助孩童基金會、協助母校興建圖書館,還贊助她領養3個小孩的台東一間育幼院!

而這些事蹟,不但感動了全台灣人、感動了美國人,更感動了全世界的人!!

61歲的陳樹菊阿嬤,也因為這些偉大的善行,被獲選為美國TIME時代雜誌的百大英雄獎! 

色戒導演李安,還特地在美國TIME時代雜誌上撰文,以表讚揚!

我最感動的地方在於,

八年前,陳樹菊阿嬤曾答應要捐款100萬給收容孤兒的「阿尼色弗兒童之家」,但即使後來被倒會,伋堅持說話算話的精神,以自己有限的收入加上向朋友借貸,三年前終於實現捐款100萬諾言,且直到去年才連本帶利還清借款!!

阿嬤說過:「錢,要給需要的人才有用!」(Money serves its purpose only when it is used for those who need it.) 

我想,陳阿嬤真的很有愛心及善心,我們台灣有妳這樣的的阿嬤,真好!

(中央社台北2日電)台東縣菜販時代雜誌(TIME)百大英雄獎即將赴美接受時代雜誌(TIME)百大英雄獎表揚,時代雜誌依照慣例,情商國際知名人士替每位受獎同胞撰寫簡介,而替陳女士執筆的,正是台灣大導演李安。

李安首先在時代雜誌上介紹了61歲的陳女士是台東縣菜販,儘管收入小康,前前後後卻捐出了台幣近1000萬元,幫助孩童基金會、協助母校興建圖書館,還贊助她領養3個小孩的台東一間育幼院。

李安表示,陳女士最令人津津樂道的,不在於她的卓越非凡,而是她的樸實和樂善好施。李安特別引述陳女士對記者的談話:「錢,要給需要的人才有用,」讓全球都了解陳女士的價值觀。

對於一夕成名,李安說陳女士並未陶醉在名氣之中,反而揮揮手,似乎不願多談,或許這讓她的生活帶來困擾,「這沒什麼好說的,因為我又不是在參加什麼比賽,我沒有真的捐很多啦。」

李安說,陳女士打算拿出資金,在教育、生計和醫藥費上協助窮人。李安文末盛讚陳女士的善行「了不起」,而在她餽贈的東西中,她所樹立的典範最為寶貴。990502

美國time時代雜誌原文:

Chen Shu-chu is a seller of vegetables in a stall in Taitung County's central market, in southern Taiwan. Out of her modest living, Chen, 59, has managed to donate nearly NT$10 million (that's $320,000) to various causes, including $32,000 for a children's fund, $144,000 to help build a library at a school she attended and another $32,000 for the local orphanage, where she also gives financial support to three children.

What's so wonderful about Chen's achievement is not its extraordinariness but that it is so simple and matter of fact in its generosity. "Money serves its purpose only when it is used for those who need it," she told a newspaper.

And rather than bask in her celebrity, Chen seems to dismiss the whole thing with a wave of her hand, perhaps even with a hint of irritation. "There isn't much to talk about, because I did not enter any competition," she says. "I haven't really made any huge donations."

She's planning to establish a fund to help the poor with education, food and health care. Amazing, but of all she has given away, her greatest gift is her example.

<i>Lee is the Taiwanese-born director of</i> Brokeback Mountain
