Earlier this year world No.10 Li Na donated all her prize money from the Mutua Madrilena Madrid Open (she reached the quarterfinals and earned $57,500) to the China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation, helping with earthquake relief efforts in Yushu County in northwest China.
The highest-ranked Chinese player is still helping those in need and she went to Xining, the capital of Qinghai province in China, hit by the April earthquake which caused a lot of damage and loss of life. Li visited the Huang Nan Zhou Orphanage in Xining, the current home of children from the Yushu community whose orphanage was destroyed by the earthquake.
Li has now donated another ￥400,000, which is approximately $59,000, and said she would fight harder in this year’s China Open and would donate all her China Open prize money to Yushu quake relief. (sources: Tennis Forum, Women Who Serve)
