Jackie's Chinese New Year Contest News
We have shipped the calendars for the Chinese New Year Contest - thanks to everyone who sent in a card. We will continue to post the cards until February 15th, so please send yours in! If yours appears after today, you won't receive a calendar, but Jackie will see your card when we show him the web page.
Congratulations to everyone who will receive a calendar and a special congratulations to those who receive one that is autographed. You have a one-in-ten chance of winning one of the autographed calendars. Please let us know if you are one of the winners. The autographed calendars were sent out randomly, so we don't even have a list of those of you who won them!
There are new cards at our Chinese New Year Card page, so click here to see them.

Updates to Kids Corner
Thanks to everyone who has sent in a card and thanks for following directions. It sure makes our job easier! Wow! Everyone has been providing names and addresses, so we'll have no trouble sending out calendars. Remember, one out of ten of the calendars will be autographed so cross your fingers and wish for good luck.
Note: Only one calendar will be sent to each person or address. If you have several members of your family entering the contest, we will only send one calendar. We think this is the fair thing to do.

Jackie's Happy Chinese New Year Contest
Jackie's contest is off to a great start! However, some fans are sending in their entries without sending their postal mailing addresses. We have alerted these fans, but in the future, we will not be able to. If you send in an entry without your full name and proper postal mailing address, you won't receive a calendar - even if you're eligible. Sorry! So please, if you enter the contest, send your name and address like this:
The idea is to make it easy and quick for us to copy and paste your address onto a mailing list. Thanks for helping! We will send calendars to the first 50 fans who send a reasonable entry for the contest. [Unfortunately, some people send some scribble on a paper just to get a calendar. That won't work for this contest.]
Build a School Total Jumps to US $12,600
Thanks to all the fans who sent money to Jackie for the Build a School project in honor of the Christmas holiday. A special thank you to the Korean Jackie Chan Fan Club (Unofficial) who sent another packet full of donation drawings (they send on a regular basis). You can read about some of the people who donate at the Dragon's Heart Helpers page. But don't forget, for every story you read, there are 10 or 100 more that you never hear about because we can't post everyone's letters. The webmaster reads them all, however, and tells Jackie what they say!
So thank you to everyone who has donated a dollar or a hundred dollars. To the German woman who donates every single month, to the little boy in the US who gave up his allowance for several months to donate it to the project, to the people who send money to our office anonymously, to all the kids and adults who create beautiful drawings to send along with their money - a big thank you!!
Here are the most recent donations. We sent these photos to Jackie in Los Angeles:
All of the drawings sent to the Build a School project are being preserved and will become part of a display in the future. (It was Jackie's idea!)

Guess the Prop Contest Winner
In one of Jackie's recent diaries, we asked fans to guess which prop Jackie was holding in this photo:
Hundreds of people responded with their guesses and about three quarters of them were correct. We took all the names, put them in a hat, and pulled out a winner. And the winner is.....Caroline Baker! Congratulations to Caroline and thanks to everyone who entered our contest. Here's what Caroline won - an autographed call sheet from Rush Hour 3:
Here are some photos of Jackie with the prize:
Caroline, please send email to the webmaster to claim your prize!
Build a School for a Dollar Donations
Thanks to everyone who sent in a donation in the last few weeks - our total is now over US$11,500. Here are the photos we sent to Jackie in Los Angeles so he can see the latest donations:
Along with the donations there were, of course, many beautiful drawings and letters. We will try to feature some of your stories in the future. Although donations have slowed down, we still encourage you to continue to support the project. Some fans donate each month and others send money when they have some extra. You can donate more than once! Jackie is so thrilled with the project and talks about it all the time. He thanks you from the bottom of his heart (that's what he said) for your caring.
During the holiday season Jackie gets lots of gifts from fans all over the world. He wants to thank each and every one of you for your gifts and cards, and especially for your holiday donations to his charities. Here's a photo we sent to Jackie showing some of the lovely cards and gifts which were delievered to the Kids Corner. (Don't worry if you don't see your gift or card - most of the mail doesn't come to the Kids Corner!) Jackie sends a big thank you to everyone!
[Note from Kath: Thank you to everyone who sent a card or gift to me for Christmas. I really appreciate your thoughtfulness!]
