众人拾柴火焰高 Zhòngrén shí chái huǒyàn gāo.

Literally “The more people collect firewood, the higher the flame will be.”

English equivalent: Many hands make light work.

Example:
北京和伦敦奥运都办得非常成功,除了其他很多原因外,还因为两个奥运会都有很多志愿者的参与。再一次体现了: “众人拾柴火焰高” 所说的道理。 Běijīng hé Lúndūn Aòyùn dōu bàn de fēicháng chénggōng, chú le qítā hěn duō yuányín wài, hái yīnwèi liǎng ge Aòyùnhuì dōu yǒu hěn duō zhìyuànzhě de cānyù. Zài yí cì tǐxiàn le: "Zhòngrén shí chái huǒyàn gāo” suǒ shuō de dàoli.

‘Both the Beijing and London Olympics were a great success, in addition to many other reasons, it was due to the participation of many volunteers in both. Once again this reflects the truth in the saying "Many hands make light work".’
