Books do­nated to poor chil­dren

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - BUSINESS -

Ne­ti­zens read sto­ries and recorded them through an on­line plat­form, in an ini­tia­tive to buy books for chil­dren in poor ar­eas. In three weeks, more than 300,000 peo­ple up­loaded their au­dio files on, rais­ing funds to do­nate about 7,000 pic­ture books by the end of June. The event was or­ga­nized by Dol­phin Me­dia, the pub­lisher of chil­dren’s books. In the first batch of do­na­tions, the pub­lisher do­nated books worth 1 mil­lion yuan ($147,000) to about 200 pri­mary schools in five re­gions, in­clud­ing Liang­shan in South­west China’s Sichuan prov­ince and Qingyang in North­west China’s Gansu prov­ince.
