Weibo proves effective at promoting charity

Jia Yue, who suffers from aplastic anemia, being treated by a doctor at a hospital in Beijing. Jia, a middle school student in Taiyuan, in North China's Shanxi province, was sent to the Beijing's hospital this summer with the help of netizens who shared information through Weibo with each other. The netizens donated more than 440,000 yuan ($68,750) for Jia's treatment at the hospital because the boy and his family are too poor to afford the hospital costs. Wang Yixuan / for China Daily
