KC Forum Member Matty Wins "Easter Egg" Contest

Although most contests take place right here on the Kids Corner, the webmaster decided to have a little fun and run a quick contest at the KC Forum. The object was to find the hidden "Easter Egg" (a hidden personal message) in the Latest Jackie News. Matty, age 14, tried and tried and finally succeeded! The hidden message was from the April 19th news headline. The headline reads:

Reason Number 4,754 Why We Love Jackie:

Jackie With Kids Corner Birthday Cards!

The hidden message (the "Easter Egg") was Jackie's birthday buried in the headline. Jackie was born in the 4th month on the 7th day in 1954! Congratulations to Matty! He wins an autographed photo of Jackie for his good work.

Jackie Working Hard to Change People's Opinions


In an azure shirt and blue jeans, Jackie Chan looked younger and more energetic than his 51 years when he appeared on April 24 at Phap Van pagoda in the suburbs of Hanoi, where 100 mostly young people living with HIV/AIDS and their families come to receive spiritual counseling, information and food. Contrary to many people's imaginations, the kung fu superstar was surprisingly open and friendly, and took part actively in activities with monks and group members.

Although UNICEF Vietnam had said Chan would arrive at Phap Van pagoda at 10 a.m., reporters flocked there very early in the morning.

Thirty minutes late because of a long journey back from Quang Ninh province, northeast of Hanoi, which has some of the highest HIV infection rates in the country, Chan joined Ven. Thich Thanh Huan and members of the community center Lotus Club in meditation. Afterward Chan and the group discussed HIV/AIDS and the discrimination people with it face.

In his first words to the crowd, the charismatic actor said, "I may be a movie hero, but the real heroes are the people I've met in Vietnam, among them, grandparents, mothers and wives, and many young people and children, who are showing real courage in dealing with people living with HIV/AIDS and who must be supported much more."

With much emotion, Chan told monks, nuns and group members about his difficult childhood and how his view toward charity works had changed.

Jackie sings the refrain of the Vietnamese song "This World Is Ours."

"Before I didn't like charity. I just wanted to be famous and to earn more money," said Chan. "My friends taught me and now I like to do charity. Even when I am sleeping, I think how I can help other people. Every human being has to learn how to do charity."

He also joked: "(Being) a goodwill ambassador is more difficult than an actor. As an actor, if I do something wrong, I will do it again. Being an ambassador, I cannot do something wrong. Everything is new to me."

He then played a game with patients and volunteers in the pagoda courtyard. Though a world-famous movie star, Chan appeared normal and sympathetic, hardly what was most likely imagined by those at Phap Van beforehand.

"Real heroes are people who do extraordinary work," Chan said.

"Two days is not enough," the action-film star said of his April 22-25 mission to Vietnam. "It's not a one-day job. This work must continue. My mission is to stop discrimination. We have to say no to discrimination."

According to statistics from UNICEF Vietnam, there are an estimated 215,000 people already infected with HIV/AIDS in the country. With a national prevalence rate of 0.4 percent, between 40 to 120 people, the majority under the age of 29, are infected every day.

"Doctor Jackie"

Jackie visited a Vietnamese communal health center and a support group session where people who have family members with HIV/AIDS can get counseling. While there, he played with the children, "listening" to their hearts through his toy stethescope. After Jackie left, children on bikes chased after him, calling out his name in Vietnamese and greeting him with "Chao Bac!" or "Hello Uncle!" Jackie repeatedly urged them, "Wear a helmet. You have to keep safe."

"Doctor" Jackie carefully examines a patient while wearing his special Doctor glasses.

Goodwill Visits Spark Interest, Donations


Hi Kids (and "Big Kids"),

As you have seen from the news in recent days, Jackie is on a mission. What is this mission? To bring the world's attention to the continued difficulties that people are suffering because of natural disasters such as the tsunami and man-made disasters such as landmines.

When the tsunami hit several months ago, you could not look at a news report without seeing photos and videos of the terrible destruction and loss of life. Slowly over the last months, those photos and videos have moved into the background. It was Jackie's idea to remind people that these victims STILL need our help. He was very lucky to be joined by Miss World and Miss Indonesia. Their celebrity helped drum up attention where it belongs - on the victims. Jackie has said that the work that has been done so far to help these people is just the "tip of the iceberg." The victims are so fortunate to have people like Jackie and the other celebrities bringing the attention back where it belongs.

If you look at the faces of the people who come to see Jackie and the women, you will see happiness, excitement, and joy. Amidst the sorrow and destruction, Jackie, Miss World, Miss Indonesia, and the others are a shining light. For a few moments, when they look at the smiling face of their beloved Jackie or the sparkling crowns of the beauty queens, they can think of something other than their own grief. This in itself is a gift to them. The hundreds of journalists and photographers following them around is a gift which will pay off in the long term. Photos, videos, and stories bring about awareness. And awareness causes ACTION.

I have heard from several website visitors who have told me that just looking at the photos from Indonesia has prompted them to donate more money. Yes, they donated money when the disaster happened, but these stories and photos have made them realize that the money is still needed. And they have come through.

Thank you Jackie. Thank you Miss World. Thanks to all the celebrities who spend their spare time helping other people rather than taking $20,000/day vacations and going on million dollar shopping sprees. The world needs more people like you.



Jackie Visits Cambodia

Jackie continues his goodwill tour of nations which are plagued by landmines. Landmines are bombs which are buried right beneath the surface of the ground. Thousands of people every year step on these bombs and are injured or killed. Many of the victims are children.

Jackie Visits Tsunami Victims in Indonesia

Jackie is on another goodwill mission, this time to Indonesia. He is being joined by friend Eric Tsang, Miss World Maria Julia Mantilla Garcia (Peru), and other celebrities. Jackie has visited a Children's Center which is run by UNICEF and has stopped by refugee camps to lend support. According to, Jackie is trying to raise awareness of the continuing needs of the tsunami victims. He is set to meet with Indonesian dignitaries as he continues his tour of the tsunami-torn area.

Jackie arrives at the airport in Jakarta to the delight of many fans. Jackie told that he packed only t-shirts and jeans for the trip. Miss World wasn't so lucky - she is expected to wear much finer clothes (and her crown!) for her visit.

Jackie's visit sparked tremendous interest by the press worldwide. This is just what Jackie intended - to bring attention to the area. Although the tsunami hit many months ago, the people still need a lot of help. To them (and to us), Jackie is a hero.

Jackie Making News Around the World

The Associated Press article about Jackie's new business ventures is making news all over the world. Newspapers in cities across the globe have picked up the article and published it in print and online formats. This is very exciting news for Jackie as he starts up new businesses.

From The New York Times:

Action Star Chan Branches Out Into Fashion

HONG KONG -- His fans own copies of "Rush Hour" and "Shanghai Noon," but now kung fu movie star Jackie Chan wants them to wear his T-shirts, sleep on a bed he designed and shop at his supermarket.

One of the world's most famous Chinese celebrities hopes to parlay movie superstardom into a merchandising and retail empire that encompasses everything from clothing to cookies.

The action star's expanding business portfolio includes a clothing label, "Jackie's Kitchen" restaurants, a sushi eatery chain, "Jackie Chan signature club" gyms and most recently, a line of chocolates and nutritional oatcakes.

Chan made his first foray into business 20 years ago, but failed because he wasn't savvy enough.

"I thought since I could make movies, I tried business on my own. I didn't know how to calculate, how much things I bought cost, how much a month's rent cost ... I lost several million, then millions again," he told reporters at a celebration of the third anniversary of his clothing line.

Now, Chan said he's hired professional businessmen to do the nitty-gritty work. That executive, Bon Bg, says the actor's goal is "total lifestyle branding" and hopes to expand into furniture and kitchen ware.

But for now, Chan says he still earns more money making movies and that remains his top priority, adding he donates his business profits to charities because it's icing on the cake.

"I feel guilty about that money ... But the money I make from jumping from the second floor, this hard-earned, blood-and-sweat money ... I'll save for myself," he said.

The Many Talents of Jackie Chan

Associated Press:

Kung fu superstar Jackie Chan says movie-making is still his biggest priority despite an expanding business empire that includes a clothing label, fitness clubs, restaurants, and a line of cookies.

"For me the greatest source of income is still movies. Nothing - stocks, financial speculation, real estate speculation or businesses - makes more money for me than making movies," Chan told a news conference celebrating the third anniversary of his clothing line.

Chan said he donates the earnings from his businesses to charities, but didn't give any details.

"The money I make from jumping from the second floor, this hard-earned money ... I'll save for myself," he said.

Outside of fashion, Chan also operates restaurants under his name and recently teamed up with the California Fitness gym chain for "Jackie Chan signature clubs".

He recently announced that he was delving into the snack industry with a line of cookies and chocolates for the health conscious.

Chan said previous business ventures had failed because he didn't have the know-how, but he's now working with professional businessmen.

Chan also said the popularity of his businesses points to his own growing fame.

"This proves I succeeded in Hollywood," said Chan, the star of the Rush Hour movie series.

Jackie in Xinjiang

During his recent visit to Xinjiang, Jackie carried out many chartitable activities and auctions. He raised 3.3 million Yuan (about US$360,000) to help the needy.

Jackie Relocating to Guangzhou Province?!?!

No - don't worry. It's not the REAL Jackie Chan, it's just his wax figure. Here's the news from China Daily:

Striking a kung fu pose and taking a photo with Jackie Chan, the Hong Kong action king, will no longer be just a dream for Chan's fans in Guangzhou.

A waxwork of Jackie Chan, the most popular and expensive exhibit in Madame-tussauds Hong Kong, will make a visit to the city in Guangdong Province from April 5th to 10th.

Visitors to the waxwork will get the chance to take a photo with the model without having to pay. Among over 100 figures in Madame-tussauds Hong Kong, the waxwork of Chan is the only one visitors are charged extra to take pictures with.

A photo alongside a wax Jackie usually sets visitors back HK$70 (US$9), the Information Times reports.

Jackie Chan Cookies!

From the Associated Press:

Jackie Chan planning a new line of oatcakes, cookies and chocolates
Kung fu superstar Jackie Chan is staking out opposite ends of the health spectrum _ becoming a partner in a fitness center chain while launching a new line of cookies and chocolates.

Chan recently announced that his JC Flavor brand will start selling snacks _ including cheese oatcakes _ during the second half of this year. The launch will begin in Hong Kong and mainland China before rolling out to the rest of the world, a news release said.

Chan's high-fiber oatcakes would be produced by Walkers Shortbread Ltd, founded in 1898 by the Scottish baker Joseph Walker, the news release said. He'll also offer cocktail and organic versions of his oatcakes, the statement said.

"JC Flavor believes that its oatcake series will soon become a favorite snack for the weight-conscious office ladies," the statement said.

Chan also was teaming up with Italian chocolate maker Venchi, the statement said.

Last month, Chan announced a partnership with the California Fitness chain, which has health clubs in Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan. The team planned to open California Fitness Jackie Chan signature clubs in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and mainland China, the chain said in a news release.

Jackie to Visit Indonesia

Crossing Borders Concert Earned US$4.8 million!


HONG KONG (AP) - Jackie Chan said Monday he will visit tsunami-hit areas in Indonesia this month, as he announced that a star-studded charity show he helped organize raised $4.8 million US for the aid effort.

Chan and his entourage hoped to tour hard-hit Aceh province on April 18-20, but details of his itinerary weren't available, said actor Eric Tsang, who planned to travel with Chan. A separate celebrity group planned to visit Sri Lanka at an unspecified date.

The Jan. 7 charity concert featured Hollywood action star Jet Li, Hong Kong singers Jacky Cheung and Andy Lau and Taiwanese pop diva Chang Hui-mei.

Donations poured in for more than two months after the show, organizers said in a statement.

Chan said he was impressed with the result and proposed making the show a permanent annual event to start up an emergency fund for other disasters.

"I'm very happy and proud that small Hong Kong captured the attention of the world this way," he said. "Some Hong Kongers didn't just donate once, they donated more than three times."

Tsang said the donations would be evenly split between five charities: the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, the United Nations Children's Fund, Oxfam and World Vision.

The money will fund projects including reconstruction, helping fishermen and orphans, as well as psychological counselling for people who lost loved ones, Tsang said.

Chan vowed to closely monitor how the funds are being used. "We will follow up ... We won't just call it a day after donating the money. This is a 10-year project," he said.

The Dec. 26 tsunami, the result of a massive quake off Indonesia's coast, killed more than 126,000 in Indonesia and at least 48,000 others in 10 other countries on the Indian Ocean rim. Here are some photos:
