Fundraising Efforts Underway for Young Chinese Burn Victim
By now, you've probably already heard of the tragic situation endured by Liang Jin, a young Chinese boy who has suffered burns in over 80% of his body.
Since May 9th, when he first met an expat from here in Shekou, Shenzhen, a small group of people have been working hard to organize and develop a system that can ensure the funds are raised to help cover the expenses of what will surely be years of treatment and rehabilitation. With the help of the doctors and nurses at the hospital in Bao'an, where Liang Jin is currently being treated, a plan has been outlined and the fundraising goal of 800,000 RMB has been set. As of today, 36,625.46 RMB of that goal has been raised from 585 contributors.
Aside from the hundreds of individual contributors, some noteworthy activities have taken place recently; including:
A Mother's Day Pig in the Box Roast on May 12th at George & Dragon where 100% of the profits were donated along with donations from other individuals there; totalling 10,700 RMB.
A Garage Sale and solicited donations on May 26th at The Snake Pit with all proceeds going to Liang Jin, totalling 7,000 RMB.
The Shekou Hash House Harriers raised 7,000 RMB during their Annual Red Dress Run on May 26th. Donations from their group continued over the weekend and reached 10,000 RMB by Sunday.
And Shenzhen City Channel featured the Liang Jin story during their news program at 11 p.m. on May 26 and again at 7 a.m. on May 27th.
