People around China mark Lei Feng Day

Xinhua)  17:35, March 05, 2013  

A citizen donates blood in Taiyuan, capital of north China's Shanxi Province, March 5, 2013, as an effort to learn from Lei Feng, a young Chinese soldier in the 1960s, who is known for devoting almost all of his spare time and money to selflessly helping the needy. Lei died after being hit by a falling pole while helping a fellow soldier direct a truck on Aug. 15, 1962. A year later, late Chinese leader Chairman Mao Zedong called on the nation to follow Lei's example, and March 5 of every year is designated as "Lei Feng Day." (Xinhua/Fan Minda)
