Yi Raises Money for Earthquake Victims Before Heading Back

Yi Jianlian spent Sunday and Monday raising money for earthquake victims in Sichuan Province, scene of a 2008 earthquake that killed 70,000. Yi traveled to his home city of Shenzen to accept a check from Proctor & Gamble at an NBA-sponsored event. Yi has taken Sichuan school children as his personal cause, often visiting the area. He returns to New Jersey this weekend.
