Many businesses, foundations and people from all walks of life gave donations to the rescue effort. As of 8 am on Wednesday, enterprises under the central government had donated more than 1.1 billion yuan ($158 million), authorities said.

Many Chinese know of Luding because they learned of the Luding Bridge at a young age. During the Long March 87 years ago, the bridge was crucial to the survival of the Central Red Army led by the Communist Party of China.
