Overseas Chinese Students Compete in Donations

World Journal, Posted: Oct 31, 2009

NEW YORK Overseas Chinese students are very active in online charitable donations because two nonprofit organizations founded by overseas Chinese students are competing to be the winner of a $50,000 award. Since October 7, Causes.com has started a donation competition, Americas Giving Challenge, on Facebook. The competition is not about the amount of donations but the number of times people donate to a particular nonprofit. Overseas Chinese Children Fund (OSCCF) and Overseas Chinese Education Fund are running first among the 7,147 competitors. Zhong Tuoxiu, spokeperson of OSCCF, said her organization entered the competition on the 17th but their individual donations have grown from 100 to over 3,000 within the second week. The organization with the highest number of donations by 2:59 p.m. on November 7 will be the winner.
