We got our 501(c)(3) federal tax exempt status approval letter in the mail today!
Now that the holidays are over, schools have resumed, and FUSS has received its IRS 501(c)(3) status, FUSS is back in action!
Not only will FUSS continue to develop products made of students’ works, FUSS will also be hosting events in partnership with individuals and organizations in our school community as well as supporting worthwhile activities held by other local non-profit and charitable organizations.
For our next event – “Education in Fashion” Show which will be held on March 2, 2013, Saturday, we are truly delighted to have the support of Mr. Eddie Cotillon – a creative director / casting / model scout / image maker, and Ms. Charlene Jones – Mrs. Northern California 2013.

Mine is to be more PATIENT
with myself and with others.
Not to rush into any plans, or
be anxious about results.
Like a tree that endures the winter snow,
I will stand firm to greet the golden sun.
Like a lake that is covered by the heavy mist,
I will wait for its clearance to face the blue sky.
Since FUSS started in April 2012, efforts have been made to generate revenue to help FUSD schools while providing a platform for students to share their talents as well as to develop their potential, entrepreneurial skills and leadership quality.
As we are starting Year 2013, we pray and wish that through the collaborative efforts with our community, better learning environment and opportunities can be offered to our students; and stronger and more sustainable support can be provided to our schools.
We are shocked as a nation, as people all over the world. We try to make sense of it. We want to find ways to keep it from ever happening again. We grieve the pain and loss with the families of the victims. We remember the principal, teachers, behavioral therapist and school psychologist who gave up their lives to protect the little children. We follow the story on news, media and internet. We share our thoughts and pour our hearts out with one another. We wish it was just a nightmare……., but…..
Dear ones, where are you now?
Can you hear our prayers for you?
Can you see our tears for you?
Can you feel how much you are missed
by your families, friends, teachers, classmates and pets?
Maybe, like little caterpillars you have transformed.
Maybe, you have finished the course of your natural life,
and become beautiful butterflies that carry seeds of love,
from flower, to flower, to flower, so that
Senseless and heartless killings will be no more.
Dear ones, we pray and hope that
The blood you shed was not in vain.
The gunshots that took your lives were a wake-up call.
No longer will we take peace, safety and security for granted.
No longer will we be apathetic to the mental and moral sickness of our societies.
