Big News for the "Build-A-School" Project:


When the Build-a-School for a Dollar project began, we had no idea how popular it would be. In the last few weeks we have received donations from all over the world and Jackie has been thrilled with the generosity of his fans. Some fans have written in to say that they love the idea of the Build-a-School project and that they wanted to know if an actual school was going to be built with their donations or if they would be put into a common fund. (It costs the Dragon's Heart Foundation US$75,000 to build a school; the China government puts up the rest of the money for construction.) We talked to Jackie about the fans' wishes to see their donations put to one project, and he was very excited by the idea. And as many of you know, Jackie will always put his money where his mouth is, so he vowed to match your donation dollar for dollar. This means that the fans have to generate US$37,500 to build a school in China....


...Jackie said that he would name the school after you; he's already begun thinking of names! That shows what kind of faith Jackie has in your ability to meet the goal! We will keep track of donations here on the Official website.

WOW!! Jackie's Build a School for a Dollar Campaign is a Big Hit!

Click on Autumn's donation drawing to see them all!


Today's mail brought over a dozen donations from all corners of the world for Jackie's Build a School For a Dollar campaign. Jackie was absolutely, positively, incredibly thrilled when he saw all the donation drawings arrive at the office today! He took all the drawings into the conference room, put them on the magnetic board, and had his photo taken with them. He then recorded a little video to tell you how he feels about his generous and loving fans. You can view the video by clicking below. [Note: The file is very large - 20MB - so you should RIGHT click on the link, choose "Save Target As" and download it to your computer before you try to view it.]

Jackie wants to thank everyone for their generosity and he said that he knows this is just the beginning. So keep the donation drawings coming. You are helping in a big way!

RIGHT CLICK your mouse on Jackie, choose SAVE TARGET AS and save the file to your computer. Then, go eat dinner, take a walk, or bathe the dog. This is a big file and will take time to download. When you return, just watch the video from your computer's hard drive!

Many people have written in to tell us that they love the idea of the Build a School For a Dollar campaign. There is now a special section of the Kids Corner website where you can read a little more about this program and where you can view the donation drawings as they arrive. So far we have only the first three sent in by Lisa S. from the USA. We hope that lots more will come soon. Remember - you can use money from any country and in any amount. That means that you don't only have to use a US one dollar bill. You can use a $5 bill from the States or a 20 Euro bill - whatever you want to donate!

We hope that you have read about Jackie's recent trip to China to help poor children in remote areas. If you haven't, you can read about it here. Many kids were writing to Jackie asking how they could help and so we have come up with an idea here at the Kids Corner so that you can do something to make a difference.

Did you know that it only costs about US$9 a year for a poor child to go to school in China? Did you know that the money that Jackie collects for his Dragon's Heart Foundation goes to help build schools where there are no schools? Well, it's true! And you can help.

Here's the idea: Take a dollar bill (or any paper money - that means paper money from any country) and tape it to the center of a piece of paper (don't use glue). Pretend that the bill is the main building of a new school. Now get your crayons and add a roof, a play yard, some grass - whatever you would like! Guess what you've just done? You've built a school for a dollar!

Now if you take your drawing and send it to Jackie at the Kids Corner, he will put all the dollars together and will be able to build an actual building somewhere in a poor area. So you see, that is how you can help build a real school for just a dollar!

Kids Corner friend Lisa S., who runs a family daycare in the United States, asked her kids to make some samples of Building a School for a Dollar (see below). When Jackie saw them he was very happy and excited and of course wanted to show you his thanks.

Thumbs up from Jackie for good work.

Jackie knows that even a dollar can make a difference.


Jackie sends a big kiss to Evan, Ryan, Anna, and Lisa!


Seven-year-old Evan has added a roof, some flowers, and even some corn!

Five-year-old Anna added a roof, some grass, and a happy student.


Ryan's school is very colorful.

A big thanks to Lisa S. and all of her kids at the Peanut Gallery Family Daycare in Wisconsin, USA.

Typhoon Prapiroon and Jackie's Poor Papaya Tree

Maybe you read in the Latest News about Jackie's wild airplane ride during Typhoon Prapirron yesterday; he said it was a very bumpy ride! When he came back to Hong Kong he discovered that the storm had knocked down one of the beautiful papaya trees in the yard of the house he owns next to the office. He wanted to show you what happened!

Jackie surveys the damage.


He collected the papayas, but they were too damaged to save.


"What's going on with the weather?!"

Hong Kong Boy Wins United Nations Painting Competition

As many of you know, Jackie is an Ambassador for UNICEF (United Nations Children's Fund) and he's also very concerned about the environment. So even though the following story really isn't about Jackie, it is related because the competition 9 year-old Lau Tsun Ming won was sponsored by the United Nations. The painting below was the 2006 Global Winner of the UNEP International Children’s Painting Competition on the Environment.

Winner Lau Tsun Ming (age 9) from China, said: "My picture shows two contrasting scenes of Earth. One is desertified and the other can keep its natural beauty. If people continue to ruin the environment, our surroundings will become dull and nasty."

Here is Lau Tsun Ming in the newspaper:

Jackie was very impressed by the painting and was happy to see that young people are concerned with protecting the environment.

Thank you Jackie Chan

This drawing was sent to the Kids Corner from 19 year-old Korinna in Germany. Below you can read the note that came with the drawing. Thank you Korinna!



I drew a picture in order to thank Jackie for all that he has done for children all over the world. It is amazing work and Ireally appreciate that he cares about so many children who are needing in this world. This picture is supposed to be a symbol of gratitude from all the kids that he has helped so far.

I'm a 19 year old girl from Germany and unfortunately Idont have enough money to donate anything that would help but once I do I promise I will support this charity because I love children.

Thank you so much, Jackie, for doing all of that!

I hope you like the picture and put it on this page. I will definitely keep drawing an if you like it I can send more pictures with Jackie Chan on them anytime!

Thank you and keep up the good work:)

Tyler's Generosity Makes News

A few months ago, a letter arrived at the JC Group offices. It was from a woman in America who wanted to tell Jackie about her little grandson's generous nature. Contained in the letter was a 10 cent coin which Tyler wanted to give to Jackie to help other people. When Jackie saw this, he was very moved and immediately sent Tyler a Big Kiss and an autographed photo:

In the following months, Jackie spoke often about Tyler's generosity and about how important it was to teach youngsters about charity and get them in the habit of giving.

Recently we heard from Tyler's grandma again, this time to tell us that Tyler's generosity had made news in their local paper.

Dearest Jackie,

Thank you so much for the happiness you have brought to Tyler. He was sure you would want a photo of him. His 6 year-old sister Khalie held his hand guiding his spelling. He drew the thing in the bottom corner. It was supposed to be a heart. He didn't like the way it turned out, but I assured him you would know it was a heart!

God Bless you and keep you safe,
Much love,

Here's Jackie's autographed photo of Tyler:

And here's Tyler in the paper:

When Jackie saw all the new cards, he scooped them up, ran into the conference room, and arranged them all for a photo. Here is Jackie with the latest group of birthday cards:

Petra's New Buddy Bear

It's Baba Buddy! As you may know, Jackie's father is called "Baba" by many who know and love him. He used to be a chef and so Petra has drawn him creating noodles in the traditional way. Thanks to Petra for another amazing Buddy Bear! Click here to see all the Buddy Bears.

On the set of Rob-B-Hood, Jackie poses with some of the hundreds of birthday cards sent by his devoted fans. Jackie wants to say "thank you" to everyone for their wonderful birthday wishes.

We brought the cards to the set because Jackie is so busy filming the last few scenes of Rob-B-Hood. Jackie was amazed by all the beautiful cards and insisted on looking through all of them and then arranging them for the photos. Can you see your card?
