Halloween Contest is Over
We will not be accepting any more designs for the Halloween contest unless you have emailed us a design already and it hasn't shown up on the website. If you have sent in a design and do not see it on the website, please forward us your original email. You must send the email as a forward so we can determine that you have already tried once to send it in.
Thanks to everyone who entered. We received more designs this year than any other year; an amazing 149 entries!!
As you know, Jackie usually judges these contests. However, his schedule is much more hectic than it has been in quite a while, so it is possible that it could take a long time to get the results. Please be patient.
Great News for Dragon's Heart
Two days ago, Jackie attended the ribbon cutting ceremony for a new store which sells luxury watches. The store's owners are known for being charitable and they were certainly very generous to Jackie's Dragon's Heart Foundation. Here's a photo of the Roger Dubuis Manufacturer donating US $540,000.
Sadly, the news sites did not report on this amazing donation. Instead, they commented on Crystal's dress and her weight. We were very sorry to see that the kind of gossip Jackie dislikes so much continues on some news sites.
In order to show you what kind of things they wrote about, we posted the quoted text on the Main site, but someone thought we were posting the gossip as news! The misunderstanding of English is something that occasionally happens, however, since Jackie has so many fans for whom English is a second language. We apologize to anyone who thought we were posting gossip on the main site.

Halloween Designs, Photoshop Jackie, and More!
Jackie's fans have been very busy this week (and so has Jackie - - just look at the latest news at the main site).
Thanks to everyone for the Halloween designs. Incredibly, fans keep coming up with new ideas! Every year when we start this contest we worry that maybe people will run out of clever ideas, but that has not happened. This just shows that Jackie's fans are some of the most creative people on the planet!
Thanks also for the latest submissions to the Photoshop Jackie page. Take a look; they're really amazing. Click here to visit our "Photoshop Jackie" page.
Lastly, there's another caricature of Jackie at our special Jackie Caricatures page. Thanks to Thomas for his great drawing. Click below to see them all.

Click here to visit our "Photoshop Jackie" page and see two really clever Photoshop projects! If you want to make your own project, you are welcome to do so.
Decorate Jackie Story
Recently we received an email from Iris in Germany and she sent along a Decorate Jackie project she made a few years ago. She never sent it to the contest that year because she missed the deadline and now that we have changed the rules a little, it is not eligible for the contest anymore. She knew this, but wanted to share her design with us anyway. Thanks Iris!
September 11, 2009
The Halloween designs are coming in so fast, we can hardly keep up! We should say thanks and congratulations to Liam and Angie from the USA. You seem to have inspired a whole lot of people by making a Dr. Seuss costume for Jackie. We've gotten three more Dr. Seuss designs since you sent yours in. Thanks!
Wow! The Halloween Contest is On Fire!
The Decorate Jackie for Halloween Contest has 65 entries already, and it's not even halfway through September. This is by far the most enthusiastic response we've ever gotten. It seems that by the time the contest is ended, Jackie will have his work cut out for him to choose a winner.
Halloween has become increasingly popular all over the world (yes, even in China), and it shows in the tremendous response we've gotten to the Decorate Jackie Contest. It's Jackie's all-time favorite contest to judge. He always laughs while looking through the entries and expresses his amazement over the creativity of his fans.
One note about the entries: In the rules we've stated that we don't want submissions with elaborate backgrounds. We don't want to turn this into a drawing contest; we want it to be easy for everyone to take part. Therefore, if you submit a design with an elaborate background, we'll post it, but it won't be eligible for a prize. We don't want anyone to feel bad, but we need to have some rules for the contest.
One more thing.....we welcome multiple entries, but we've put the limit at 6 for each person. Of course we know that there are endless ideas for costumes, but we don't want to make it impossible for Jackie to pick the winners!
Click our little friend to see all the incredible costumes!

Jackie's Build a School for a Dollar Total Approaches
In the past month, Jackie's fans have donated US $946 and with Jackie matching that amount, the total for the month is $1,892. We are only about $6,000 away from having enough money to build a second school for the Dragon's Heart Foundation. And what that means is that fans only have to raise another $3,000 because Jackie matches donations dollar for dollar. This is very exciting news! Jackie is thrilled with the ongoing generosity of his fans and of course there are a lot of very happy children in remote areas of China who can go to school all because of you.
As a reminder about where your money goes, here's a photo of Jackie in Guizhou, China, giving out school supplies to the children in July, 2006. The money that you donate buys these supplies, pays school fees, and goes toward the construction of schools:
And here's another photo from Guizhou which shows a very happy Jackie talking to the children:
We have added some donation drawings to the Build a School pages and we want to send out a big thank you to all of the fans who donate anonymously (well, we know who you are) by credit card at the main website. This month we had donations online in amounts ranging from $1 to $500 !!! Thank you to everyone!
To see the new donation drawings, click here.
Buddy Bear Contest Thanks
Today we received a thank you from Lena and her grandmother Maria. Here's what they had to say:
It's great to hear from the fans when they win prizes. The smiles on their faces make everyone happy. Thanks for writing!

Wow! Look at This!
One of the winners of a blank Buddy Bear from our latest contest has sent us photos of what she did with her bear. Take a look at how beautiful it is! Although she says it's not quite finished yet (she has more ideas for adding to it), we think it's just spectacular.
Thanks to the contest winner (who prefers to remain anonymous) for sending us these terrific photos:
In the past we have given out blank Buddy Bears and have asked to see photos of what fans have painted on them. Do you know that all of the winners of these blank bears don't paint on them because they're afraid to ruin them? We're sorry this happens, and we encourage people to go ahead and try. That's what Jackie would want them to do. You can always paint it white and try again!
Lots of Updates!
Incredibly, we have received 25 new designs this past week for the Decorate Jackie for Halloween Contest. Thanks to everyone who has sent a design. They're really beautiful and of course we are amazed by the imaginations of the fans who continue to think up clever new ideas. If you want to join in the fun, click on the little fellow below:
The contest entries page is updated to September 8th. If you have sent your design before September 8th and don't see it on the site, please resend. Thanks!
Here's a nice Halloween picture from our old friend Pamela:
A Couple of Nice Thank You Notes from Winners of the Buddy Bear Contest:

Decorate Jackie for Halloween Contest
This year's Halloween contest is turning out to be a busy one. We usually don't get this many entries until later in the contest, but it seems everyone is getting a jump on things and sending them in early. Thanks!
The contest runs until October 31st and will be judged by Jackie, so get busy thinking up great ideas.
Today we received a nice Halloween drawing from Sandy. She made it especially for the enjoyment of visitors to the Kids Corner! Thanks, Sandy.

Dear Jackie ,
We also received a thank you note from Guna. She wrote a little poem to show her appreciation!

New Fun Stuff Section:
We've gotten such a great response to the Photoshopped images of Jackie that we featured here in our news a few weeks ago (see below), we've decided to open up a new section for the Kids Corner to show off the creative talents of Jackie's fans.
We've created a separate page where images of Jackie that have been manipulated in programs like Photoshop will be displayed. Here are some ideas for you:
The possibilities are as endless as your imagination. So give it a try!

Fan Customizes His Auto With Jackie's Portrait
Jackie Chan's face has shown up on t-shirts, coffee cups, posters, magnets, and dozens of other items. But we've never seen anything like this. Gleb from Osessa in the Ukraine sent us photos of his car. Take a look:
Thanks, Gleb! We're sure Jackie will get a kick out of seeing himself painted on your car!

It's That Time Again.....
Since 2005 we have had a Decorate Jackie for Halloween contest here at the Kids Corner. This contest is Jackie's absolute favorite and he is always happy to be the judge.
Each year there are an equal number of entries from adults and kids and we receive designs from every corner of the globe. This contest is for everyone to enjoy and we encourage you to enter, no matter how old or young you are!
We are starting this contest a week earlier than we did last year to give everyone plenty of time to submit an entry. We know that people are busy this time of year getting kids ready for school and preparing for the winter (or summer), so we want to make sure everyone has a chance to color a design.
There are lots of great prizes again this year and they're all autographed by Jackie himself! Click below to begin.

Photoshopped Pictures of Jackie
Recently we stumbled upon a website that ran a contest in honor of Jackie's 55th birthday. Entrants were instructed to submit Photoshopped photos of Jackie. This kind of thing is similar to our own Jackie Chan Movies That Weren't pictures here at the Kids Corner.
Here are two samples of the kind of posters that were entered into the contest:
You can view all of the entries at the original website by clicking here.
We'd love to have your "Movies That Weren't" posters to publish here in the Kids Corner. Just email them to the webmaster!

A Few Panoramic Photos from Fibe
Fibe Ma (her name is pronounced like "Phoebe") is the person who writes Jackie's diaries after he dictates them to her. She was also a scriptwriter for films such as Rumble in the Bronx, Mr. Nice Guy, and Supercop.
Recently Fibe was in Beijing for the Jackie Chan Fans Friendship Tour '09 and she took several photos of the Bird's Nest Stadium before Jackie's concert to share with the fans. Hope you enjoy them! (Click to enlarge.)

Jackie Announces Winners of Buddy Bear Contest!
Although Jackie's quite busy filming in Beijing, he took time out to choose the winners of our recent Buddy Bear contest. Here are the six winners:
Jackie takes judging of the contests at his website very seriously. The entries are printed out and through a process of elimination, he chooses his favorites. Here are photos of Jackie picking the winners:
And here are the 12 runners-up:
The six winners of this contest will receive either a blank Buddy Bear or one that has been painted by an artist. (Click here to see information about prizes.) The runners-up will each receive a Buddy Bear miniature.
Thank you once again to Eva Herlitz of the United Buddy Bears for providing us with the wonderful prizes!
*Note: Buddy Bear designs that had been entered into previous contests were eliminated from this competition, although they were displayed on the website. They were not given to Jackie for judging. For example, if you sent a design for the 2008 Buddy Bear Design Contest and then sent the same design for the 2009 contest, you would not qualify to win this year.*

Build a School Helpers: A Very Special Teen Talks About His Charity Work
We invite you to read a beautiful written story about how one 14 year-old from the Netherlands became involved in charity work.
New Build a School Total
The total amount of money raised for Round 2 of the Build a School for a Dollar project is now up to US $67,056! Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the charity. Many fans donate money online and others send in their drawings. Some donate a dollar; others donate hundreds. We can't stress enough that each and every donation, no matter how big or how small, is meaningful. Jackie continues to match donations dollar for dollar, so if you donate one dollar, you've generated two dollars for the charity. We encourage you to continue to support the project and we thank you so much!
We haven't been getting many drawings from fans anymore, but we did get a few this month:
You can send a Build a School drawing by following the instructions here.

Jackie's Build a School for a Dollar Project
The Build a School for a Dollar project is an ongoing charity fundraiser supported by Jackie's fans. Over the past several years Jackie's fans have donated over US $65,000. Some people donate a dollar or two; others donate more. Jackie truly appreciates every single penny that is donated and he matches all donations. Throughout the entire project Jackie has been very involved. He has photos taken of himself with many of the donation drawings and he talks about the project at news conferences and when he travels for the Dragon's Heart charity.
Although times are tough throughout the world, Jackie's fans have continued to support this project. Jackie encourages you to donate whatever you can to the Build a School project and he thanks you from the bottom of his heart for your support. He really does!
Jackie invites all of you to take a look at our Dragon's Heart Helpers page. There you will find wonderful stories of creative ways fans have found to raise money for the project. Our newest story features a group from Germany who have raised almost US $5,000 for the Build a School project over the past several years.

Build a School for a Dollar
This month Jackie's fans contributed US $1,057 bringing the total up to $65,950 !! That's only $9,050 away from our goal for a second school. This is very exciting news for everyone, especially for all the people who have given money to the project.
Whenever Jackie hears about the new totals for the Build a School for a Dollar project, he is quite happy and always passes along his thanks to the fans. Just think how excited he's going to be when he hears this newest total!
We want to thank everyone for the contributions, no matter how big or small. As you know, small amounts add up to large ones when they're combined.

Recently we received two messages with news concerning Jackie's website. Since we are proud of the work we do at JackieChan.com and JackieChanKids.com, we'd like to share the news with everyone.
The first bit of news was that someone went through thousands of websites and posted a list of the "Top 32 Gorgeous Celebrity Websites" and we're happy to say that JackieChan.com was on that list. You can see the results here.
The second thing that was brought to our attention was a list of the "World's Best Logos and Brands" which included the old logo that we used for the Jackie Chan Fan Club for Kids. Although the fan club is no longer in existence, we still have pictures of the old logo. Here it is:

Big News for Build a School for a Dollar
The new total for Jackie's Build a School for a Dollar project is US $63,836 ! This was an incredible month for donations; fans gave $3,760 and with Jackie's matching donation, that adds up to an amazing US $7,520.
Donations ranged from less than a dollar up to US $1,000. Many fans donated money at the Friendship Tour party in Beijing and others worked on individual projects to raise money. There was a very large donation sent to our online charity donation page and all this adds up to a terrific month for the charity.
Jackie always says that the amount you donate is not as important as the fact that you do donate. For some people, one dollar is a considerable sacrifice. We appreciate all donations and remember that when you put all the dollars together, they add up very quickly! The Build a School for a Dollar project is once again close to having enough money to build a second school. Originally Jackie had hoped that a particular school could be named for the fans who have been so generous, but so far it hasn't been possible to arrange that. However, remember that all of your donations go to the Dragon's Heart Charity and they are used for buildings and supplies. Not one dollar is wasted.
We've added some new photos to our Dragon's Heart at Work page because Jackie wants you to see exactly where your donation money goes.
Once again, thank you to everyone for continuing to support this project. If you read Jackie's diaries you know that the Build a School for a Dollar program is very special to him.
Click on the photo below to see the new pictures we've added to the Dragon's Heart at Work page:
There are also more photos of donation drawings posted in the Build a School Donation Drawings page here.
More Buddy Bears
There are several new Buddy Bear designs at our Buddy Bear Contest page. Don't forget to send in your design! Jackie loves the Buddy Bear contests and he will pick the winner (time allowing). The contest ends July 31st.
