A Thangka exhibition aimed at helping underprivileged children in remote Tibetan-inhabited areas was held at Tibet Edifice in Beijing on July 14, 2013. Hosted by Beijing Tsongkha Culture Communication Co. Ltd., the exhibition is centered on the theme of "Chinese dream and Thangka dream" in order to raise people's attention to the protection of Thangka, reported by China Tibet Online.

Rigzin Gyatso, board chairman of the Beijing Tsongkha Culture Communication Co., appealed to the audience to care for underprivileged children in remote Tibetan-inhabited areas. On behalf of his company, Rigzin donated a 3-meter-long Thangka titled "Avalokiteshvara with four arms" to Ngodrup Kunphel Welfare School against Illiteracy in Sichuan Province to help educate and cure over 200 underprivileged children.
