Pupils make a collage of Lei Fung (or Lei Feng) with red scarves in Zhuji City, east Chinas Zhejiang province, 5 March 2013. In early March each year, Chinese citizens may well get help from warmhearted people as various do-good-deeds activities are launched at this time in memory of a Communist Party selfless model person - Lei Fung (or Lei Feng). Lei Fung, a native of central Hunan Province, joined the PLA at 20 and spent all his spare time and money helping the needy. He died on 15 August 1962 at 22 after being hit on the head by a wooden pole that was accidentally knocked over by a fellow soldier. On March 5, 1963, late Chairman Mao Zedong called on the nation to follow his example by writing Learn from Comrade Lei Fung.
