...here is Jackie with all the beautiful cards that everyone sent in this Christmas. You made him very happy!
Jackie gives the designs a "thumbs up."
"Thank you from the bottom of my heart!"
We decided that one card deserved a special mention. It was created by a family in Hamburg, Germany and it was not only clever and well-made, it really demonstrated the spirit of the season. Congratulations to Sophia, age 10 ("Cut"), Constantin, age 13 ("Production Designer"), Alexander, age 16 ("Logistic Director"), and Iris, Mom and "Executive Producer."
Thank you to everyone who sent in a design. They were really special and Jackie loved them all! The three winners MUST send an email with their mailing address in order to claim the prize. Click here to see what the prizes are.

A Star for a Star
If you look up into the night sky and find Polaris, the North Star, you will see a constellation nearby called Dragon (Draco). And if you look very carefully you will see one star shining quite brightly in the Dragon constellation. That star is called Beta Draconis. It is 360 light years away and what makes it special is that it is dedicated to Jackie Chan.
Heidi, a fan from Munich, Germany, had the star dedicated to Jackie and a beautiful certificate with a star map were recently sent to the office in Hong Kong. Jackie was very pleased to see what was written on the certificate:
Jackie wanted to share it with all of you who visit the website, so here he is with his star map and star certificate!
