Inspired by Jackie
People often say that Jackie is a good role model for kids and adults. Jackie's good works inspire others to take a step in the same direction. Well, here's another example of Jackie's good example giving someone else an idea to help others:
Jackie Producing Animated Film
Jackie is the producer of an animated film (due out in 2007) called "The Wind." The making of this film is being led by acclaimed Taiwanese film director Edward Yang. According to an article in the Taipei Times, the movie will feature a young man with extraordinary kung fu abilities. His face will be designed to resemble Jackie.
Edward Yang has been making movies for a long time and is very well respected. One of his most wonderful films was "Yi Yi" which you can read about here. If you have a chance to see Yi Yi, see it! It's extraordinary.

Several months ago the Kids Corner webmaster received an email from our friend Victoria in England. "Have you received my Buddy Bears in the mail yet?"

They took TWO MONTHS to get across the Atlantic! We're happy to present Victoria's latest collection of Buddy Bears. Thanks Victoria!

Jackie the Fireman!
Yesterday, Jackie got all dressed up as a firefighter to lend his support to the next World Firefighter Games in Hong Kong (February, 2006). "A lot of people call me a hero," said Jackie. "Well, (firefighters) are real heroes; they are nameless heroes."
Jackie said he hopes to make a movie about firefighters. "I have had the script for 20 years," he said. "It is a dream of mine to make this film; if I do not make it, I will regret it."
