YOU'RE SUCH A DIRECTSH!!!!!!!!!T !!! :twisted: :x :evil:

WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM??? :roll: :roll: :roll:


Yao Ming had been spending alot of his time, effort and $$$$$$ in his philanthropic/humanitarian work for the past 10 years, trying to help the poor; through his Yao Foundation, he had built 14 Project Hope primary schools in the poor-stricken or earthquake-stricken cities in those backward Southwest provinces of Sichuan, Guizhou, Yunnan and Gansu. More schools will be built as he continues to partner with big multi-national corporation (such as the recently concluded partnership with Marriott International).

He is also spearheading initiatives of bringing sports (through basketball first) back to the school children through his Yao Foundation Hope Primary School Basketball Season.


Are you COLD-BLOODED or do you have ANY SENSE OF SYMPATHY OR SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY for those poor and needy that need help ??? :roll: :roll: :roll:
