Jointly launched by the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) and the China Women's Development Foundation (CWDF) in May 2012, the Postal Parcel for Mothers charity project features transparent and convenient participation. Donors can purchase parcels containing 100 or 200 yuan (US$ 15.89 or 31.78) worth of basic necessities, such as washing powder and towels, through several channels, including post offices, the CWDF website, Internet service portal Tencent's charity channel and the Alipay online payment platform, to help mothers in poverty-stricken areas.
