Taiwan actress Ruby Lin celebrated her ten-year career anniversary on Tuesday by funding a new school for rural children.

At a party in Beijing, which was held partially to celebrate her 32nd birthday this Sunday, Lin handed over a 200,000-yuan (US$27,627) check to the Chinese Red Cross Foundation, through which the money will be used to build an elementary school. The Red Cross runs a project assisting Chinese children in rural areas in obtaining an education.

Ruby Lin said she plans to contribute to building a school every year.
