【看CP學英文】在台的美裔YouTuber小貝 (Logan Beck) 近期將超過400封台灣感謝美國捐贈疫苗的粉絲留言寄致美國國會以表達謝意。
YouTuber Logan Beck (小貝) has delivered over 400 messages from his followers to the United States Congress, which expressed their gratitude for the United States’ donation of 2.5 million vaccines to Taiwan recently.
The U.S. donation of 2.5 million doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to Taiwan arrived On June 20. Two days later, Beck started accumulating letters of gratitude to send to the U.S. Congress through Facebook.
“I was moved by the gratitude of the Taiwanese people to my own country,” Beck said.
“A huge thanks to the US government for your generous donation of vaccines to Taiwan in this very challenging time. The time is ripe for the US and Taiwan to deepen our ties,” a comment on Beck’s Facebook post said.
“I got over 400 comments and I personally typed them up… I sent that to over 50 different members of Congress, just telling them how appreciative and grateful the Taiwanese community was for America’s generous donation,” Beck said.
He revealed that he had sent the messages of gratitude through a 13-page letter to Washington D.C., along with emails to over 50 members of the U.S. Congress.
“I’ve heard that there are a few lobbyists on The Hill that have seen it [and] it’s been passed around to different people working in the White House,” Beck said.
U.S. Senator Mike Lee and Congressman John Curtis have received the messages of gratitude as well, Beck added.
They will be sending over U.S. flags that have been flown over the U.S. Capitol Building to Taiwan.
When they arrive, Beck hopes to donate the flags to public schools or museums in Taiwan.
“[I want] to let people see [the American flags] as a reminder of the camaraderie and just a token of the work that Taiwan and America have done together while facing the pandemic,” Beck said.
“My whole entire goal of being a YouTuber is to also become a bridge between America and Taiwan,” Beck said on Facebook.
Beck started his YouTube channel four years ago when he moved to Taiwan with his Taiwanese wife.
His YouTube channel focuses on Taiwanese culture, scenery, travel, and food.
He often challenges himself with trying out various foods; on July 10, he uploaded a video of himself partaking in a “turkey testicles pizza” challenge.
