We believe the "greatest communist party".
The "Party" will take care of us, we only need to believe the "Greatest party", didn’t u see by the Party founded festival, all the signs on the street and public place?
Everything will be fine, why do we need charity.

The socialist mentality places social justice squarely on the shoulders of Government.

I have to say it's not the truth. Most chinese believe in charity.Since the Guomeimei scandal happened, people have lost faith in the chinese biggest charity organization(Chinese Red Cross).And they tend to believe in non governmental charity organization.

They do have charity. They had a ton before Qing, but then they became the charity cases. Now that they are starting to make money again, it's a good excuse for the very rich Chinese to socialize and have banquets, something they can never get enough of.

And don't pretend the west is any different. In Canada, most charity fundraising happens on Calgary golf courses.

There have been scandals lately about where charity money goes, and that's not just the Red Cross. I also heard about relief funds for the earthquake being misused, officials taking the money and pocketing it. I mean, if I lived in a country where I had no idea if my money actually helped anyone or not, I wouldn't donate. There are people in this world who will scam anyone they can, even their own mother.

Chinese donate to charity all the time. They may not give to street people, but I don't either. Too many are fakers or part of gangs.

  Charity begins in the home, so don't worry, give China a few more years to build it's economy and you'll start seeing teenagers in yellow bibs wandering around asking you to give one yuan a month to the starving children of Africa or to help some charity hospital or other, I guarantee it.

Scandals involving people taking the money and spending it by themselves. If I give money as a donation, I would like to know it has been used in a proper way. I want to donate clothes and shoes for the migrant workers, I hope no one will sell them and make a personal profit.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
