Chinese billionaire Chen Guangbiao, who considers himself China's top philanthropist, is offering to buy lunch for 1,000 homeless people in New York City. Some say the offer is a noble gesture, while others consider it a gimmick from the Chinese tycoon who once made news by offering to buy the New York Times newspaper. Fang Bing of VOA's Mandarin service has this report, narrated by Colin Lovett.
