Yixing’s largest Chinese fansite XingPark has set up a charity fund in Yixing’s name under the V-Fund charity, just in time for his birthday on October 7th! Mango V-Fund is a charity run by the Hunan Broadcasting System (aka the people that brought us Happy Camp) and focuses primarily on health and education of children and youths. Dubbed “Mango V-Fund – Zhang Yixing Fans Charitable Fund”, this new project has been approved for a period of 5 years (= ONGOING!!).
XingPark has already made a first donation of ¥100,000 Chinese Yuan (~$16,300 USD) to the project. A portion ( ¥20,000) came from collections from fans to celebrate Yixing’s birthday, while the rest came from sale of fansite goods.
After this project was unveiled today, Yixing tweeted “Proud!!! Touched!!” on weibo:
