DEALL graduate student raises $1,400 to help flood victims in Shanxi Province, China

March 30, 2013

Ziying YOU (person on the right in photo) took a quiet action when she learned about the disastrous flood that impacted many lives of villagers in Yangxie village, Hongtong County, in Shanxi Province. The two-hour silent auction that she organized with the help of other DEALL graduate students raised on March 29th $1,400 of relief fund. Items displayed for the auction included art and craft, ornaments, clothes, culinary treats, special books, and certificates for services. Participants enjoyed bidding for the findings. Thank you, Ziying, for organizing an event that everybody could participate, enjoy, and raise relief fund for this important cause! The Yangxie village was flooded when a dam collapsed in February.
