As people continue to talk about the issue surrounding Yang Mi and her non-existent donation to the Chengdu School for the Blind, netizens recently found out that there is one celebrity who is worthy of being called a charity angel.
As reported on Epoch Times, several netizens recently found records of charity donations made by famous artistes, and realised that Taiwanese model-actress Lin Chi-ling has made more donations than other stars.
The record shows that Lin has made monthly donations to charities – and once even donated more than NTD 47 million.
One netizen commented, “Lin Chi-ling seemed to be the kind of person who would be donating money when she is bored.”
“The amount is amazing,” said another, adding, “There are so many rich people who are not willing to donate a lot, but she has done so much.”
Lin has always been enthusiastic about public welfare since she made her debut in 1998. In 2011, she established the Chi-ling Charity Foundation and would produce her own calendars every year. The profit received from the sales are then donated to children welfare agencies, as well as other establishments that help children in need.
In a 2016 interview, Lin revealed that she was inspired to do a lot of charity from the words of a cancer-stricken friend, who asked her, “How would you like to be remembered after you’re gone?”
Lin stated that after thinking about it, she realised that she should be doing something influential with her celebrity status, and decided to devote herself to charity.
