    I read in 'The Star' that lcw is going to donate some of his 'bonus' to the Sichuan earthquake victims. What a great human being. Here is the article:

    KUALA LUMPUR: Lee Chong Wei's parents hope the Malaysian public will not be annoyed with his son's performance in the Olympic men's singles final in Beijing last night.
    The father, Ah Chai, said: “He was off form and made so many mistakes. I think my son could not handle the pressure.
    “It was just not his day. I feel bad that my son failed to deliver the first gold medal for Malaysia in the Olympics. But I am pleased that he managed to achieve the target of reaching the final.
    “He is the first Malaysian to qualify for the Olympic men's singles final. I think that he should continue playing and go for the gold in the 2012 Olympics in London.”
    A group of 30 reporters and photographers were at Chong Wei's parents' house in Bukit Hatamas in Cheras to watch the final match on television last night.
    Ah Chai and the wife Kor Kim Choi were clearly disappointed after the tame loss. Also at the house to watch the match were Chong Wei's sister Ming Ching and her husband K.S. Tung.
    The 55-year-old Ah Chai added that Chong Wei called yesterday to inform him that he would donate some of the money from the RM300,000 reward to the Sichuan earthquake victims.
    “He told me that if he wins the gold, he will give more money to the earthquake victims. I am proud of his caring nature,” said Ah Chai.

    Are you sure? The story said "if he wins the gold" and "some of the money". Is it to early to say he donates "all" the winning. Do you have a better source?

    How about donating some of the money to local charities - like the ophanages ? As they say, charity starts at home.

    The choice of charity is an individual decision. There are many deserving charities. There are also other benefactors.

    Questioning on choice of charity is not really important. He didn't need to donate anything to anybody.

    i don't think we should be comparing how much one person donates compared to how much that person makes. we should all just be grateful for any donation that anyone makes, after all, it's a gesture of goodwill not an obligation.
