Chen guangbiao,a chinese businessmen who is well-kown for his exaggerated philanthropic patterns.Recently,he advertised in New York Times that he would host a charity luncheon at New York Central Park's Loeb Boathouse on June 25 for 1,000 "poor and destitute Americans". Each participant would also receive $300.However,only 5 participants received the donation,the other were asked to go to Rescue Mission for money.The officials of the organiazation said the donated $90 thousand was intended to provide food,rather than cash,for the 500 poor people.
It is clear that they did not reached concensus on charity.Chen said he aims to boost the profile of chinese tycoon and soothe China-US relations,while  Rescue Mission helds the view he just seek to gain fame and honour.
here is the namecard he made for himself,which is astonishing!

In the charity lunch,the chairman of China Foundation for Global Partnership(GFGP),Patrick Donohue, awarded him the honorable title of "the top philanthropist" and a certificate.  A volunteer of GFGP told him he should first donate anonther $60 thousand to the body and to erase his doubtness,the volunteer claimed  GFGP is affiliated to the United Nations.Chen was really convinced of what she said,but he only agreed to donate $30,000,and he was not aware of  that what printed in the certificate was"United nation",not "United Nations".Actually,GFGP was founded by a chinese, does not have any direct connection with"the United Nations".

"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime".I think that is the esseceof charity.As the official of RescueMisson said to Chen:"You could never figure out what they will do with the money they receive without any pay".that is also the diffculties many welfare country faces,people relied more on government tan their own hands,it does no good to the country or the persuit of self-value.
True philanthropists foucus more on how to help the disadvantaged group live on themselves after he did a once service or provide a temporary relief.they do not choose places where media's light is the most shinning,they do not build their satisfaction upon others' sufferings.
