September 5 is China's Public Welfare Day, established in 2016. This year, almost 6,700 public welfare programs will participate in a social campaign initiated by Tencent Foundation and launched with the Social Good Fair in Beijing on September 3.

This year, Tencent Foundation and 300 partner enterprises - including Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, China Post and Amazon China - will donate more than 600 million yuan ($91.8 million) to programs implemented by 120 public charity foundations.

The campaign is deeply connected with the Internet, as Tencent is one of China's IT giants. "China is enhancing its cyberspace building. The 'Internet plus' initiative has provided massive opportunities for this field," said Zhang Xunhong, Director of the Internet Social Work Bureau, Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC), at the launch ceremony during the fair.

This is the third year that Tencent Foundation has promoted a social campaign, guided by the CAC. CAC started to promote donating to charity via Internet platforms in 2016 by coordinating public welfare resources and encouraging web media and platforms, NGOs, and the public to participate in charity, according to Zhang.
