    Jackie Chan raises $3.3 million dollars for Japanese relief efforts



    Jackie Chan organized a fundraising event in Hong Kong to support Japan after the tsunami disaster. The event made around $3.3 million dollars in just 3 hours, and included Andy Lau and Donnie Yen, as well as Korean and Japanese musicians, and a satellite performance from Jackie's long term friend, Lionel Richie.



    Jackie is known to be a philanthropist, and in his own estimation has donated somewhere between 10 and 100 million US dollars. Jackie payed for the plane tickets and accommodations for the performers and contributed around HK $5 million (US $643,000)

    Proceeds are to go to the Salvation Army, which will be used to prepare and distribute relief packs containing two weeks worth of food and water, hygiene items and blankets.

    Good luck to the people of Japan. Go Jackie!

    It's the least he could do since the Japanese occupation created such a rich source of cinematic themes.

    But good for him.

    glad to hear he's raising money for a good cause.

    ...i'm still not totally over the whole "chinese people can't handle democracy" thing, though.

    I think it's good to see the Chinese helping the Japanese- there's a lot of older people that still have animosity towards the Japanese because of the occupation, but the young people don't feel that way. When I was younger, the old Asian guy who worked at the local market would go on anti-Japanese rants, and would sometimes pull up his shirt to show that his back was covered in scars from being sprayed with machine gun fire.

    Yeah, much like older Japanese Americans would and should have animosity for the internment camps, Older Chinese would and should have personal animosity for mistreatment.

    It seems you accidentally put a link in there to Rumble in the Bronx, rather than the correct link to Police story:

    Jackie's from Hong Kong and from all accounts is a stand up guy.

    Kind of like the Chuck Norris of China.

    Anyone his age still doing his own stunts is some kind of awesome.

    .....disclaimer.....

    I's a Jackie and Chuck nutrider.
