Chen Guangbiao

Chen Guangbiao from 1985 to 1990 he studied at Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine and received a bachelor's degree in medicine. After graduation he worked at the No. 2 Hospital affiliated with the university, Jiangsu Academy of Social Sciences, and then Hongguang Medicine Company in Nanjing. From 1997 to 2002 Chen was chairman of Nanjing Jinweili Electrical Medical Equipment Company. In 2003 he became chairman of Jiangsu Huangpu Renewable Resources Limited, an unlisted company that is in the business of recycling domestic waste and construction materials. Chen founded and owns the entire company, and Forbes estimates his wealth at US $800 million.
Now the reason I am blogging about Chen:
Chen Guangbiao gained fame in China for his contributions in the aftermath of the devastating 2008 Sichuan earthquake. He arrived in the disaster zone early, and personally rescued thirteen survivors and carried about 200 bodies out of the wreckage. He also arranged reconstruction machinery to the zone and distributed cash to victims. He donated US $25 million to charitable causes in 2008, more than half of which went to the earthquake relief efforts.
Yet people soon suspected that the widely-acclaimed philanthropist's generosity was a publicity
stunt. A highly circulated photograph of him posing behind his donation of a wall of thousands of 100-yuan banknotes in Nanjing drew heavy criticism. He thrust cash to the palm of the needy and took photos with them, but required the beneficiaries to raise the RMB he had given out. His charity was described as philanthropic violence. However, Chen seemed unfazed by the social pressure. He insisted on his "violent charity" and said his high-profile show was to attract other wealthy to emulate.
On June 25, 2014, Chen hosted an event in conjunction with the New York City Rescue Mission at a Central Park restaurant in New York City where he purchased lunch for 200 homeless people. Served by volunteer waiters who wore uniforms similar to those once worn by soldiers in China's People Liberation Army, attendees were made to sing a Chinese communist song and promised $300 cash that they later did not receive due to security concerns, although it was instead given in lump-sum to the New York City Rescue Mission. Further controversies arose when homeless communities members were denied access to the event and an anti-Chinese Communist Party group gathered outside the venue to protest the event.

Anyways at the end of the day I would still have to have lunch or dinner with him.
