The attention grabber is the first part of the speech itself, which arouses the interest of audience through the description of an interesting incident. The main points are that Feng Shui originated in China over 4000 years ago, that it is a method of maximizing energy flow by manipulating our environment, that its aim is to improve our 'chi' (the energy flow that connects all things) and that it could be practiced anywhere by certain arrangements of objects. The speaker makes use of information from Simon Brown's book Practical Feng Shui, Sarah Rossbach's book Feng Shui: The Chinese Art of Placement, Nancilee Wydra's book Feng Shui: 150 Simple Solutions for Health and Happiness in Your Home or Office, Winifred Gallagher's book The Power of Place and Lurraue Lupone's book Feng Shui: Therapy for the New Millennium. The speaker concludes with a positive note - mentioning how the presence of a wind chime at the dorm room could in fact generate good chi, thereby persuading the audience, who are supposedly his/her fellow students, to practice Feng Shui.
2. The general purpose of the speech entitled "To Save a Child" is to explain the relevance and functioning of the organization named Compassion International.
