“Warm Winter Action” is a public welfare activity carried out by natives in Litang, youth volunteers from other places, and charity organizations in mainland China, which has lasted for 10 years since its inception. Haijun Kong, as the initiator, has been paying attention to the study and life of Litang children. In her own words, "To warm a child is to warm a family". Ten years passed like a day, and practical actions were taken to fulfill the original intention of Warm Winter Action, which also drove Litang youth to give back to the society.
