LUSHAN, China, July 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- "Beautiful Lushan; Caring Lushan" – The inaugural "Lushan Impression" art and art sale for charity was recently held in Lushan. The event was designed to promote the scenic spot through many artistic renderings of the famed resort, allowing interested tourists worldwide to better know the exquisite area and the Chinese traditions that are part of its long history: "When disaster strikes, help comes from all sides".
Two days before the event, more than 3,000 tourists and art-lovers had already gathered at Lushan. On the last day of the event, over 600 art-lovers including students from colleges and universities as well as secondary and primary schools across China had made the trek. The secondary and primary school students included several children from orphanages as well as sons and daughters of laborers from Sichuan province working in Jiujiang city. They enthusiastically and cleverly created their own interpretations of the area's breathtaking scenery, then attended the charity sales event in concert with workers from the Red Cross Society of Jiujiang city. The proceeds were all donated to the people of Ya'an, the area that had recently suffered an earthquake, providing funds for the rebuilding of their homes. A large number of tourists also participated in the event.
Li Xianni, a fifth-grade student from Jiujiang Binxing Primary School, enthusiastically signed up for the event after learning about it through an announcement. Li's grandparents live in Sichuan while her parents work in Jiujiang. She said, "We should show our love to people who were harmed by the earthquake. I hope people there can keep healthy and live good lives with our limited help." On-site tourists vied with each other to buy the students' artistic endeavors and T-shirts adorned with hand-drawn pictures; some tourists even bought as many as six shirts. They said, "The scenery, people and the heartfelt emotion in Lushan are all so wonderful. Lushan is beautiful and so are the caring people who are here."
