Have You Met?

The pain of losing a child knows no words. When Jimmy and Linda Yip lost their only child, Nathan at age 19 in an automobile accident, they could have withdrawn from life and felt forsaken, but they didn’t. In their grief, they found some solace and comfort in 2002 by creating the Nathan Yip Foundation in their son’s memory. Everyone involved is a volunteer, so 100% of the proceeds raised go directly to the mission of building schools to educate underprivileged youth, buying food and supplies, buses and providing support to these precious kids in poor Chinese, Mexican, and African remote villages…look the Web

Linda Yip

Some people tell me that I am too positive. I always look for the best in everyone. If someone needs my help, I am there. I am not sure if I’ve always been this way, but I do know that since coming to Colorado from Taiwan in 1975, it has been my mantra.

In 1975, I came to Colorado to help a friend who just opened a Chinese restaurant. I was part of the wait staff. Even though I held a political science degree from a University in Taiwan, I began my life in Denver waiting tables…read more
