China Earthquake Donation Protected by Spell

go to hell
Hong Kong based inmediahk.net's Facebook page shared an image circulated widely on Chinese social media which shows spells written on money, that says, “This is a donation for a Ya'an earthquake victim, those who dare to misuse this money will go to hell.”

Last week Hong Kong's legislature denied a donation call for China's earthquake victims due to the overwhelming opposition by Hong Kong citizens, who feared the money would end up feeding corrupt Chinese government officials instead of going to people in need.
