Beijing 2008 Volunteers Keep Smiling
Posted 8:22 am ET (GamesBids.com)

More than five thousand volunteers including workers, college students, school children, farmers, teachers, public servants, artists, foreign students, seniors, and staff from foreign companies in China, gathered at the Juyongguan section of the Great Wall of China Sunday and flashed smiles to display there readiness to volunteer at the Beijing 2008 Summer Olympic Games.

The Great Wall was decorated in the colours of the Olympic Ring and the volunteers wore colourful dancing belts. Two hundred college students formed a heart-shaped pattern, which later turned into a formation of a smiling face.

Each volunteer wore a “gelatinous” hand ring inscribed with the slogan “the smile of the volunteers is the best name card of Beijing”, and the symbol of the Beijing Olympic Games.

The event was organized by the Beijing youth league, the city’s volunteer association and Beijing 2008.

The Beijing 2008 Games need 70,000 volunteers for the Olympic Games and 30,000 Paralympic Games volunteers.
