    Seems like there's been an abundance in the news about the strength of parental love/parental negligence.
    What parents would do for their children ~ here's another example:

    A mother in China is selling hugs to strangers for £1 in order to raise money for medical treatment for her 4 year old daughter who has leukemia.

    South China Morning Post reported that Chen Dejuan, 28 was photographed standing outside one of the subway stations in Chongqing with her daughter Nana on Friday and Saturday, holding a sign which read "Selling hugs for 10 yuan each".

    She reportedly showed her identity card and her daughter's medical records to commuters to prove she was telling the truth about her situation.

    Heartbreaking photos from local media shows Nana sitting on the floor with her respiratory mask with her mum.

    Dejuan and her husband is said to have spent 70,000 yuan (£7,000) on medical treatment already, which included all their savings and borrowed from friends and relatives.

    The mother managed to earn more than 600 yuan (£60) in just an hour on her first day from selling hugs to strangers whereas additional donations has been made by people who have heard about the family's situation online.

    If it's for a good cause and it's legit, well worth it, but there are a lot fakes and cons.

    Sympathy begging isn't new. What is new is the social media behind it. Years ago, I remember seeing beggar children in Guangzhou by the train stations, usually kidnapped from elsewhere and then purposely maimed so that their appearance garners public sympathy. Like a prostitute, they must then return daily with at least so much money to their handler or they don't eat, or worse, get beat. It was at that time I vowed to never give out of sympathy to any children being used as an emotional prop.
