Charity cares for students
Unite the Force for Good, a national charity program under the China Poverty Alleviation Foundation, announced it had raised 45.82 million yuan ($6.64 million) over the past five years at its fifth anniversary. The program’s name in Chinese literally means “100 good deeds”. It promotes caring for students from less developed areas, by calling for 100 hours of volunteer work from each college student. It also calls for 100 hours of charity promotions in department stores and markets and for individuals to donate 100 yuan every year. In 2016 alone, more than 50,000 college students from more than 150 universities registered on the program.
