Super Virtuous Bai Fang Li..Power of Giving


A touching story from CCTV …

Bai Fang Li, died 93 years old, lived in poverty. Yet, he donated an aggregate sum of RMB 350,000 to universities and schools in Tianjin to help 300 poor children in need.

For almost twenty years, he paddled his tricycle earning Yuan by Yuan to save up for his donations. His lunch was two buns and plain water. Luxury to him was the sauce he put into the water. Dinner was a piece of meat or an egg. What he wore was what he picked from the dump. Any extra piece was luxury.

He paddled 365 days a year every year, in the snow and in the soaring heat of 50 degrees C. He started at 6 in the morning and finished at 7 or 8 at night.

“It’s alright I suffer,” he said, “But let the poor kids go to school.”

90 years old, he arranged his last saving of RMB500 neatly in a box and handed to Yao Hua School, saying, “I cannot paddle any more. I am not able to donate any more. This shall be my last …”

All teachers in the School wept …

The last image people had of him was his photo inscribed, “A special Love for
a special you.” (last photo shown)

Pictures showing the students from Yao Hua School paying tributes to their benefactor.



I too cried while reading his story. This is really the Power Of Giving.

Selfless act... Wish our government officials here in the philippines learned from him, while they sit on their soft couch and spending peoples money on their nonsense luxuries (sometimes mistresses) they should be like him. He is true indeed an angel in disguise.

This is the best story I've read in my lifetime.. this is the true meaning of self-sacrifice, putting himself through such hardship day after day after day so he can help others. The way he disregarded his own welfare to help those children is without a doubt the greatest act of generosity and love I've ever seen. An angel on earth... I have no doubt he's with God in a place he won't ever have to suffer again.
