In his previous visit to Taiwan, Chinese recycling magnate Chen Guangbiao made a splash handing out traditional red envelopes of cash to random people. Focus Taiwan is reporting the philanthropist plans to soon return with more structured giving plans:

The foundation would set up scholarships to help poor students and also be used to promote cross-strait cultural exchanges to enhance communications and understanding between students across the Taiwan Strait.
