Half a million volunteers on duty

Beijing Olympic Games help promote volunteering spirit in China.





We, as spectators, cannot imagine what it is like to be on the backstage of this great event, The Olympic Games.

Well, even the committees need a little help, and as we are talking about China, where little is much, the event is going to count on 500,000 volunteers during the two weeks when the games happen up to Paralympics, in September.


They will be on hand to ensure everything runs smoothly in Beijing and other Olympic venue cities. That is the most important idea, but by this action, Beijing also wants to send a message about the power of volunteerism, not only to sport, but also to the well-being of whole society worldwide.
