Chapter 809: Establishing a Charity Fund in the Name of Xinya
Old Mr. Wen calmed the crowd down and said, “The focus of our products is feeding the skin with fruits, and natural fruit essence is the core of our products. Our research concept is allowing the skin to enjoy natural and unpolluted warmth and moisture so that it can absorb the nutrients of the fruits and become healthier.”
Lots of data and numbers were displayed on the large screen behind Old Mr. Wen. Although most people didn’t know what they meant, the reporters would do their best to help everyone understand the numbers.
Old Mr. Wen continued, “The Wen Corporation is able to attain success in research and Ai Shang’s products can be presented to the public in a perfect manner, all thanks to the thousands of employees in the Wen Corporation. You guys were the ones who continuously tried to pursue innovation. It was your hard work and efforts that created Ai Shang. You made a huge contribution to the Wen Corporation. I hereby thank you sincerely.”
Even Wen Xinya began applauding agitatedly.
Remaining calm and composed, Old Mr. Wen continued, “Of course, I also have to thank everyone for having so much hope and excitement for Ai Shang’s products. It is your faith in us, that compels us to be stricter with ourselves. Because of the attention that you pay to us, we continuously encourage ourselves and push ourselves to strive for the best. That’s how we managed to gain the confidence to face everyone.”
Old Mr. Wen’s words were short and concise, yet all-encompassing. He managed to win the favor of everyone present.
Wen Xinya could not help but realize that there was still plenty for her to learn about business management.
At this moment, Old Mr. Wen looked more benevolent and he said, “I believe that everyone is very curious about why I have decided to attend the product launch cocktail party personally. After all… it’s been a long time since I’ve attended or hosted any events for the Wen Corporation.”
The reporters immediately began snapping photos in a frenzy. Even the guests were extremely curious.
Of course, Wen Xinya was rather curious as well. She was certain that Old Mr. Wen had other reasons for showing up since a simple product launch did not warrant his attendance.
Old Mr. Wen said, “Recently, the Wen Family has been plagued with woes, and it seems we keep getting into trouble. First, it was Ning Shuqian’s fake pregnancy, followed by Xinya’s abduction and my son’s adulterous affair. All of these scandalous news have embarrassed my family and disgraced us in front of the media and public. They have also ruined the reputation that we have been maintaining for decades.”
Everyone could not help but recall everything that happened to the Wen Family lately. They discovered… that none of the wealthy families of the upper-class society had ever experienced so much chaos over the years.
Appearing stern and austere, Old Mr. Wen said, “Since so much has happened, I, the old fogy, must make an appearance and clarify things. I’d like to say now, that the Wen Family’s authority is not to be challenged. Otherwise, the Wen Family is going to deal with whoever tries to incur our wrath.”
His menacing and daunting words caused a terrifying tension to fill the air in the silent hall. At the same time, it also proved that someone was the mastermind behind everything that happened to the Wen Family lately.
After nearly twenty years, everyone finally witnessed the ruthless and deadly side of Old Mr. Wen again. He instantly shocked everyone.
Even Wen Xinya had tensed up.
Old Mr. Wen continued, “I also have something to announce. It is the main reason why I’ve decided to host the product launch.”
Everyone broke into commotion again.
Could the announcement have something to do with Miss Wen!?!
After all, Old Mr. Wen had gifted Wen Xinya with some of his shares during the homecoming party as a form of compensation.
During her coming-of-age ceremony, he again gifted her with more shares, claiming that he was just returning her the shares that belonged to her mother.
What did that mean?
Everyone held their breaths and looked forward to it.
While others were filled with excitement, Wen Haowen was incredibly displeased as he stood by the right side of the podium.
Initially, he was still affected by the negativity of his controversial adulterous affair. He needed this chance to show his face and clear his name so as to improve his reputation. However, the fact that he could not host the product launch took this chance away from him.
Yet, Old Mr. Wen came up with such an arrangement at the last minute. What Wen Haowen dreaded most had finally happened. He felt like he was not being respected as the CEO at all.
Due to the fact that he was in public, he tried his best to suppress his emotions. However, he glanced at Wen Xinya coldly.
It better not be like what he was thinking.
Old Mr. Wen said calmly, “I plan to organize a charity association in the name of my granddaughter, Wen Xinya. 1% of Ai Shang’s profits will be deposited to the charity funds every season. The money will be used to sponsor orphans in the nation. I’ll also be making the operations of the charity association transparent to everyone.”
When Wen Xinya was kidnapped, the Wen Family almost lost their only heiress, and ever since then, Old Mr. Wen had begun reflecting on his past sins and mistakes. He felt that it was time to atone for them, lest he ends up implicating his descendants because of the retribution.
His words caught everyone by surprise.
Numerous enterprises of the upper-class society would establish and found charity organizations in order to improve their image. However, it was rare for anyone to announce it during a product launch as Old Mr. Wen did. Besides… 1% of Ai Shang’s profits may sound like a small portion, but no one doubted that it would amount to a massive sum in the future.
Old Mr. Wen’s motivation and drive were extremely impressive!
Of course… the most shocking bit was that it would be established in Wen Xinya’s name!
As expected, it had something to do with Wen Xinya again.
Once the charity fund was established, Wen Xinya would attain more fame and she would again be in the limelight of the upper-class society.
The glory and clout were much more valuable than shares of the corporation.
Who would be more glorious than her?
Everyone began pointing their cameras at Wen Xinya.
Even Wen Xinya was caught off guard. Of course… the reporters managed to snap photos of the look of astonishment on her face.
Wen Haowen’s face grew sullen!
He totally did not expect that Old Mr. Wen would be so ridiculous. What he dreaded most really happened.
The money contributed to the fund would be from the Wen Corporation even though it was established in Wen Xinya’s name. Old Mr. Wen was clearly trying to create more clout for Wen Xinya and indirectly tell everyone that she would be the real owner of the Wen Corporation in the future.
What about me?
What is that old man going to do to me?
That old man has gone overboard.
