Thanks Lin Lin.

The titles tells you exactly what it is.

Dunno. This is GM worthy, but this isn’t? Consistency mods? Either put both in player forums or neither.

Exactly!

Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against the Chinese as such (Tibet aside) but if people here cannot see Na Li willingly or unwillingly is being used in Chinese political propaganda, I feel sorry for those and recommend they remove the blinders.

As for all these Na Li donates this and that stories in general. PLEASE. Her tennis education is bought and paid for by her government and they effectively owns her. As long she represents China, she'll 'donate' whatever they want her to donate. Such things need to be seen in this perspective - IMO.

Re: Li Na visits Yushu quake orphans,donating another ¥400000,learning Tibetan dance

The official and detailed report from wtatour.com:
http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/p...085948,00.html

XINING, China - On Tuesday, Li Na made a special visit to Xining, the capital city of Qinghai province in China. In April, an earthquake happened in Yushu in Qinghai province that devastated the lives of countless individuals and families. At the Huang Nan Zhou Children Orphanage in Xining, Li shared her personal story of success, providing hope and inspiration. Kids also had a chance to play tennis and receive tips from the world's No.10 player.

Yushu, the area most heavily hit, lost 2220 lives. The earthquake damaged the orphanage in the Yushu community beyond repair. The Huang Nan Zhou Children Orphanage in Xining has, so far, taken in 57 orphans from Yushu, and they expect the number to continue to grow. This Orphanage relies upon charitable donations to operate and care for the kids.

Li has so far donated 400,000RMB (about $59,000) to CFPA, the China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation, and has entrusted CFPA to use the donation to help Yushu orphans. With 300,000RMB of her donation, Li will provide living expenses for those children for three years. To help in developing kids' resilience needed to recover from the trauma of a disaster, the remainder of Li's donation, 100,000RMB, will pay for sports equipment and facilities to 10 schools serving 1,000 students in Yushu. In addition, her support will give teachers training on how to use sport to promote youths' development of basic life skills.

"I was in Germany when the Yushu earthquake happened. I was shocked by the news and also deeply moved by people there, seeing their courage facing this life tragedy," Li said. "I was thinking about what I could do to help people in Yushu to better recover from this catastrophe.



Further to her prize money from Madrid in May, Li has also pledged all her prize money from this September's China Open in Beijing to help the orphans.

"When I'm on court, people only see me playing tennis, when in fact all my success couldn't be achieved if there weren't so many people behind me and supporting me. That's why I feel I should do something in return to help those in need," Li added. "I want them to feel the support of our society and I hope they will continue to be strong in their construction of a new life."

David Shoemaker, President of the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour said, "We are very proud of what Li Na has done to help the children in the earthquake hit area. She's not only a star on court who has achieved so many milestones for tennis in China, but also an ambassador off the court who shows care and generosity towards people who need help. The Sony Ericsson WTA Tour is very proud to stand together with Li Na and support her in this initiative. This is exactly what tennis should bring to people - inspiration, love, and passion for life."

I did not think rice, but did need the units to put the amount in perspective. Knowing RMB is helpful.

The Uyghurs, Tibet, Tiananmen Square especially (most of you in here are to young to have seen that).......

I'll NEVER trust any information coming from Chinese government or related persons (including WTA as far as China is concerned) again.

I urge you all to do the same.

Maybe, just maybe, Na did this of her free will, because she wants to give help to people who need it? Do you also think that when Jie donated her Wimbledon prize money to the Sichuan earthauqke victims, she did it because she was somehow forced to? I think you are being very cynical here.
