The Red Cross Society of China, The Shanghai Charity Foundation and Unite in Global Appeal for Sichuan Quake Victims.

Shanghai, May 25, 2008 - (ACN Newswire) - The Red Cross Society of China, The Shanghai Charity Foundation and appeal together to international enterpise for help in relief for the victims of the Sichuan earthquake disaster.

The 2008 Sichuan earthquake, with a magnitude 7.9, occurred at 2:28 p.m. on May 12, 2008. Its destructive power has affected many regions throughout China. The day of May 12 was supposed to be a normal day, but this sudden disaster shattered the land and left thousands of countrymen homeless. Mountains moved, mud and stone flew, traffic stopped, lines of communication were broken, houses collapsed and even more heartbreaking, thousands of children were buried under the ruins. How lonely and desperate they must feel surrounded by complete darkness, with no light or sound.

"I need love." We can feel the grief coming from the bottom of those fragile souls, clearly and strongly.

The relationship between people and enterprises is interdependent, just like the relationship between lips and teeth.

40 million small and medium sized companies account for 99% of China's total enterprise and are the supporting force of the Chinese economic construction. The growth of small and medium sized enterprises goes hand in hand with the development of China's charities. Confronted with such a huge catastrophe, our responsible corporate parties should stand out and exert a collective power to help salvage and rebuild the disaster area. As the leading business portal website in China, has accumulated a large amount of company resources in its 10 years of growth. We have established a stable and cooperative relationship with local enterprises and unions, and enjoys generous public approval among those 40 million enterprises.

Thankfully, thousands of enterprises are now reaching out to help those affected by the recent earthquake. The Red Cross Society of China, The Shanghai Charity Foundation and global enterprise' common portal,, appeal together to the 40 million small and medium sized enterprises and to all those kind-hearted small and medium sized organizations with a sense of social responsibility to activelyy support the rebuilding of the disaster areas that were affected by the earthquake, to commit themselves to providing relief to the people affected by the disaster and to extend a helping hand to those who are in need of help.

Disaster can show how strong the Chinese people are. Over the past 5000 years, from the period of flood subjection by Dayu, the Chinese Nation has experienced numerous natural or social ordeals. However, we can still stand straight in the family of nations. The national spirit of being "united as one" or "standing in the same boat" is at the soul of China's ability to stand tall and remain resilient after so many difficulties.

Meanwhile, we are also padvancing this urgent request towards overseas enterprise through different media, and through the different languages of our eight global websites at We hope that companies worldwide will kindly and generously pay attention to the rescue and rebuilding efforts and help us to reach out to those in need.

Restricted by transportation, it is more efficient for companies to donate in cash. At the same time, the disaster area is currently in dire need of tents, blankets, food, drinking water, medical supplies, environmental sanitizing agents and purifying agents for drinking water. We are hopeful that enterprises which can provide and produce such products will respond positively and rapidly.

We embrace them, and hope they contribute to our efforts, no matter how small the contribution is. If there is more concern and more warmth, there will be greater chance for earlier arrival, and survival.

Please join us and together and we will meet this challenge.
