China Red Cross Calling For Donations For Sichuan Earthquake With Sina.com

May 13, 2008 | Print | Email Email | Comments | Category: Giving




The Red Cross Society of China is cooperating with Chinese web portal Sina.com to call for donations for victims of the Sichuan earthquake.

As the transportation in the disaster hitting area is not smooth, CRCC is mainly collecting monetary donations right now. It has opened a special account and hotline for those interested in contributing cash. The detailed account information is under the account name "Red Cross Society of China".

For those who want to donate in Renminbi, send money to the RMB account 0200001009014413252 at Beijing Dongsinan Branch, the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China.

For those who want to donate in foreign currency, send money to the foreign currency account 7112111482600000209 at Jiuxianqiao Branch of the CITIC Bank.

In addition, donations can be made by sending to No. 8, Beixinqiao, Dongcheng District, Beijing, Postcode: 100007, or donating online at redcross.org.cn or via short messages — by writing 1 or 2 and sending to 1069999301, users will donate RMB1 or RMB2 to the disaster relief.

After the 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Wenchuan County, Sichuan Province on May 12, CRCC has sent 557 tents and 2,500 quilts valued at RMB788,000 to people affected and the Red Cross Society of Hong Kong has also donated RMB500,000 to the victims via CRCC.

    Please give me the exact procedure of how to donate foreign $ to this Sichuan earthquake. Is the above a bank wire? What is CITIC bank?

    I thought it could be much easier for people donate their money if you can make a direct link to the website of red cross in this web page. And it could be a lot more easier for people to donate money through their credit card if you have set up the system like most online shopping.

    Try the following link.

    The donation will go through HongKong red cross and reach Sichuan. HK$1000 = USD140

    It will be helpful for people around the world to recognize the standard spelling of the China Red Cross. For example, is it "Red Cross Society of China" or "China Red Cross"?

    Then, too many acronyms or abbreviations throughout your site, e.g., CRCC, CITIC, CSR, and SIFE. They can easily make first time visitors feel confused. If you really like to use acronyms, you may ensure their standard spelling.

    Seriously, I really hope China Red Cross could improve their services on website by offering online donation by credit cards. It just makes thing much much easier for people in overseas who try to help and make some contribution. I'm sure there are a lots of people who want to make donations for the earthquake, however, couldn't figure out a way to do so. I tried the red cross website, and they don't offer online donation by credit cards. The current ways are very out of date, and take long time. I had to do it thru Australian red cross for its China Disaster Preparedness Project, which only took me 1 min. If China Red Cross can provide online services. It will make a big difference and raise more donations overseas.

    Dear Folks,

    It would be nice for us here in USA to be able to send help.

    In the USA we only use checks, not boxes of cash.

    Should we send checks to American Red Cross or to the Merch Corps ?

    Thank you,

    Sincerely,

    YaoHui LIU & Rich.

    I really feel bad for Chinese people but I also know that corruption in China is very bad.

    How can I be very sure that if I donate money to China that it goes to the correct people?

    You should also warn your users that there are scammers and cheats all around so always be 100% sure about which organization you donate your money to!

    I tried hours to make donation online to china red cross without success.
    Then I made donation to china earthquake though US red cross in five minutes.

    Could you Chinese folks make things better?

  15. By Pauline CMay 18th, 2008 at 12:06 pm

    FYI, you can make donations to several organizations to this earthquake tragedy through networkforgood.org. The direct link is here.

    The Red Cross link on this site directs funds directly to the Red Cross Society of China. My donation went through on Wednesday.

    I think most charity organisations are making things complicated. Why don't they just make an option by quoting their bank account, so that we can bank straight into it by going to the bank. Instead they ask for our e-mail address and our home address and name etc and also say the money will be for the China earthquake and maybe other charity works. I am making my donation to the China earthquake victims and no other causes. If I were to make donations to other causes, I would do so in separate gos.
