     ziyi Zhang : Celebrities Involved in “fake donations”, Including Chopard’s Caroline Gruosi-Scheufele
        
        China Artist Zhang Ziyi, who is well-known as the main actress in <Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon> and <Memoirs of a Geisha>, caught Earthquake Donation Scandal recently, as Zhang allegedly holding donations collected for Szechuan earthquake victims during the 2008 Cannes Film Festival. To redeem her honor, Zhang made a terse statement on 28 Janurary, says "as most of the donations were did by oral promises from foreign donators... and you know it is quite hard for me to chase those money, but I will continue making effort to get all donations back".
        
        By citing the related news, we found that many celebrities from Europe and the U.S. appeared in Zhang’s fund raising ceremony, such as Caroline Gruosi-Scheufele, Co-President of Chopard. If if the truth as stated by Zhang, it is undoubtedly surprising, and they will face the double blow on their reputations and brand images.

    found this

    Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi is suspected of delaying the release of donation funds she had garnered for victims of the 2008 Szechuan earthquake during her fundraising activities at the Cannes Film Festival that same year.
                  
      Zhang’s fiance, multi-millionaire Vivi Nevo, had reportedly set up the Zhang Ziyi Foundation on her behalf in the United States to conduct fundraising activities for the earthquake victims.
                  
      Citing information from Nevo’s close friend in Hong Kong, Chinese media reports alleged that the Foundation’s donation funds, earmarked for the Chinese Red Cross Foundation of at least$2 million, were channelled into Zhang’s personal overseas account and remained there for almost 18 months after her fundraising efforts at the film festival.
      
      Now Chinese civilians are trying every possible way to find out where the money had gone ,especially on the internet ,many websids were built up to discuss this event that why the Foundation refuse to public where the money had been used.But less progress they have made because none of them were the doners on Zhang Ziyi's fundraising activitie for the 2008 Szechuan earthquake in Cannes on May 21th ,2008. They aim to find out these doners in France or America so that Zhang Ziyi have to tell where the money had been because Zhang Ziyi's Foundation have to answer to it's doners.

To redeem her reputation, Zhang made a terse statement on 28 Janurary, 2010, saying that "as most of the donations were just verbally committed by donators, (and you know) it is very difficult for me to chase those money. I, however, will continue to make effort complete the collection of all donations".
        
        Based on the related news, we found that Ms.Ziyi Zhang and Ms.Caroline Gruosi-Scheufele co-hosted the fundraising event for Friends of China Earthquake Disaster Relief Fund in International Cannes Film Festival with many celebrities shown up, such as Roberta Armani,Tamara Mellon,Eric Mika,Christian Jeune,Thierry Fremaux,etc.
