Miracle Kids Celebrate Chinese New Year with Panda Express

The celebration of Chinese New Year, or Spring Festival, is all about togetherness and is a time when family and friends gather together to feast and welcome the new year. A variety of lucky foods are traditionally eaten for their symbolic meaning surrounding either their Chinese pronunciation or physical appearance—with individual dishes representing specific aspects of good fortune to come in the new year. For example,

  • Egg rolls symbolize wealth
  • Chow mein noodles symbolize long life
  • Shrimp symbolize happiness

February 16, 2018 marked the beginning of the Year of the Dog in the Chinese zodiac. Take a look at how some of our miracle kids and their families celebrated Chinese New Year this year with corporate partner Panda Express!

In 2017, Panda Express employees and customers donated more than $15 million to CMN Hospitals and raises money for 127 children’s hospitals across the United States.
