Build a School for a Dollar Gets A Big Boost!
A combination of events has led the total funds raised for Round Two of Jackie's Build a School for a Dollar project to take a giant leap all the way up to US $44,346 !!
The first thing that happened was that Jackie was invited to participate in iGoogle's Celebrity Theme campaign. iGoogle is a new project from Google which allows people to customize a home page. Several celebrities were asked to submit their own themes and Jackie was one of them. iGoogle generously donated US $10,000 to the charity of Jackie's choice, and he chose the Build a School for a Dollar project!
The second thing that happened was that Jackie wrote about the project in his diary on September 3 and expressed his disappointment that donations had dropped off. He encouraged his fans to think of the project as an ongoing one and soon after, people began to respond. We received several hundred dollars in donations over the next several weeks and that means that since August 11th, fans have donated over US $1,500. Jackie matches those donations and when all this is added together, it's quite a lot of money.
We want to thank iGoogle for their generous donation. If you want to learn more about customizing your own homepage with iGoogle, you can click here and watch a short video. Then, you can visit Jackie's Celebrity iGoogle Theme page and begin using it! Here's a peek at Jackie's theme:
Build a School for a Dollar Project Brochures for Download
We have added a page to our Build a School section where you can download informational brochures about the Build a School project. Right now we have them in six languages, but hope to have more soon. The idea is that kids or adults can print out the brochure, then bring it with them to show people. It can also be copied and given out at events. We hope you like this idea. Click below to read more!
A big thank you to the special fans who helped with the translations!

A Touching Letter from a Young Fan
We Are Ready!
Beijing showed the world that they were indeed ready for the start of the 2008 Summer Games. The opening ceremony was fantastic! If you were in one of the many countries that cut the broadcast short and you missed Jackie, you can see him right on the main website in the Videos section.
The Kids Corner wants to say thank you to Raoni for his great drawing of Jackie, which we displayed on the front page last week for everyone to enjoy. Raoni was nice enough to send us a black and white version to color in:

Build a School Total Jumps to US $26,754!
Two months after the devastating earthquake in Sichuan, China, Jackie's fans are still very busy supporting the Dragon's Heart Foundation, which will be helping to rebuild schools in the devastated area. Most of the donations in the past few months have come in to our online donation page, but of course some wonderful things have also come to our office. We don't always know the stories behind the online donations, but they are just as appreciated as the donations that come along with beautiful letters or drawings. The smallest donation this month was US $2.00 and the largest was US $500.00. Jackie appreciates each and every one of these donations and encourages you to give what you can because every little bit helps!
Some of the fans have sent beautiful letters and drawings with their donations, and we want to thank everyone for their support. Here are a few stories behind some of the recent donations:
A couple of lines from the letters:
We have many stories from our "Build a School Helpers" and will post them as soon as possible on the Kids Corner. In the meantime, take a look at some new photos of Jackie with donations on our Build a School pages.
