“We tried to find the do­na­tor for three years but failed. Then we re­al­ized that he or she might not want to be found. We re­spect our do­na­tor’s in­ten­tion. We’ll def­i­nitely use the money to help more peo­ple in need.”

So said Chen Haiy­ing, the deputy di­rec­tor of Ningbo Char­ity Fed­er­a­tion, which is a non­profit pub­lic wel­fare so­cial or­ga­ni­za­tion based in Ningbo, east­ern China’s Zhe­jiang Prov­ince. Since 1999, ev­ery year in Novem­ber or De­cem­ber, the or­ga­ni­za­tion would re­ceive a do­na­tion from a pseu­do­nym “shunqi zi­ran.” This year on Novem­ber 23 and 28, they re­ceived 500,000 yuan ($72,307) and 490,000 yuan re­spec­tively from the same anony­mous do­na­tor. Un­til now, “shunqi zi­ran” has do­nated a to­tal of 10.54 mil­lion yuan. All of the do­na­tions have been used to help eco­nom­i­cally dis­ad­van­taged stu­dents and other peo­ple in need.
