Li Chenxi (27) is trying to avoid the disparaging title of "sheng nu," or "leftover woman," so she rented a boyfriend to bring home to her family for Chinese New Year.

Every Chinese New Year is basically one large family reunion and Li Chenxi is trying to avoid the inevitable questions of why she'll be alone forever. There's a major stigma in China, a culture that often attaches unflattering labels to the unmarried, so the pressure is on.

Watch how Li Chenxi picks out a boyfriend named Sean (24) and then tries to convince her family that the two are in love.

*Renting a BF is $150, with an extra charge for a kiss and a cuddle.

Here's the full video from Al Jazeera:

Tristan, a third-grader in Missouri, was selling cups of lemonade for a dollar outside of the Davis’ family yard sale to help raise money for adoption fees. Over the last four years, Donnie and Jimmy Davis have had legal guardianship of Tristan Jacobson but have been unable to come up with enough money to afford the fees.

In the end, the total from the lemonade and yard sale surpassed their initial $5,000 goal, as the family together raised $7,100 to pay for Tristan's adoption. A crowdfunding campaign was also set up that gained $6,900. The additional money will go towards Triston's college education.
