The retired official Yao Wen paid a special party membership fee of 10,000 yuan to express his sincere feelings for the people in the disaster area.
Party members Chen Changlin and Liu Xueyou had poor family conditions, but they still paid one hundred yuan without hesitation.
After learning the news, Feng Zhixiang, a party member who had already retired, resolutely took out two thousand yuan to send to the party branch as his "special party dues" despite his early retirement salary was only more than 1,000 yuan.
It is often said "one party member, one flag."
