People were counting the fund.
On April 12, 2015, the first “Guangzhou Community Cultural Festival and Spring-Grass Help Education Activity” which was hosted by the Information Times and the Shadong Street, was held at Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou. This activity aimed to raise money for five poor high-school students’ three-year tuition fee. The pedestrians, hospitalized patients and guests performers were generous to donate money and showed their kindness.
There were various performances at stage, dancing, singing, martial art, magic show, Guzheng playing, etc. Every show gave audiences strong audio and visual enjoyment. At donation area, there were five tents, where daily necessities, books, notebooks, herbal tea and paintings were selling. Volunteers held the signs of charity bazaar and patiently explained the purpose of this sale to the passing citizens again and again. Both the performing guests at stage and the volunteers under stage hope to render their effort so that they can help the five children, who were on the verge of out of school, raise tuition fee to complete unfinished school.
