We won't be having a contest this year for Jackie's birthday, but we hope that you will send him a card anyway. Last year Jackie was so touched and happy when fans not only sent in beautiful, creative cards, but also donations to his charity. If you want to send Jackie a birthday card, you still have plenty of time. Jackie's birthday is April 7th. Here are some of the cards and generous donations sent in last year:
Here's the address to send Jackie a card:

Build a School for a Dollar Update
Total Has Reached US $53,596
Despite the worldwide economic crisis, Jackie's fans have continued to support his Dragon's Heart Build a School for a Dollar project. He was very touched to see all the newest drawings and donations that arrived at our office in Hong Kong and also at our online donation site. Although there has been a serious reduction in the amount of money being donated, fans are obviously doing their best to help out. Here are a few photos of Jackie with some of the drawings from the past several months (these are not just the ones from the past two months):
We have had donations from some groups of children in America and Germany, plus we've had several people who have used unique ways to raise money. We will update the Dragon's Heart Helpers section as soon as possible. Thank you to everyone who has sent in a donation! Every dollar helps.
While filming The Spy Next Door in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Jackie's young co-stars also made donation drawings for the project:

Chinese New Year Contest Winners
Jackie has chosen the three winners in the Happy Chinese New Year contest featured here at the Kids Corner last month. We printed out the entries and Jackie carefully - and with much difficulty - chose his favorites. The winners are Sabrina (USA), Marjukka (Finland), and Michela (Italy). Jackie said that he loved all the designs and that even though he had to choose only three, he thought they were all winners!
The three winners will receive an autographed Forbidden Kingdom poster.

Valentine's Day Coloring Project
Many people celebrate Valentine's Day on February 14th and just for fun we are giving you a cute coloring project for this special day. Jackie always says that every day is Valentine's Day, so it doesn't matter if you color it now or later! Thanks to our Kids Corner cartoonist, Petra, for another adorable drawing.

Jackie's Annual Happy Chinese New Year Contest Ends
Thank you to all the fans who sent in Chinese New Year drawings for Jackie. The contest has ended, so please don't send any more drawings to the Kids Corner. This year we have over a hundred drawings, so it will take Jackie a while to pick out his favorites. Please be patient and we'll let you know the winners as soon as possible!

Update: Jackie's Annual Happy Chinese New Year Contest
Wow! Many fans sent in their Happy New Year contest entries very quickly this year. If you're counting the entries at the Happy New Year page, don't forget that the first 50 people who send in a design get a prize - - but only one prize per address. Therefore, if someone sends in more than one design or if more than one person from the same address sends in a design, they will only receive one prize. What does this mean to you? Well, it means that you still have time to be one of the first 50 designs we receive! So hurry up and send in your Happy Chinese New Year design for Jackie.
Thanks to all of you for following directions for naming files. One request - please only email your design once. It takes a few days to update the website, and some people are sending their same designs over and over again (sometimes up to 6 times). This will cause confusion and it's a waste of time. Thanks.

Build a School for a Dollar
Since our last update, Jackie's fans have been very busy raising money for the Dragon's Heart charity and we've received dozens of donations from fans all over the world. Since September 29th, the Build a School for a Dollar project has received US $3,631 in donations. Since Jackie matches each donation, that means US $7,262 will be added to what we've already received in our second round of fundraising. The new total?
This is an amazing achievement and a heartwarming display of the dedication and generosity of Jackie's fans. As soon as Jackie is avaliable, we will tell him about the new donations and maybe take a few photos!
A big thank you to everyone who sent a donation. There are some wonderful stories to tell, and we will add them soon to our Dragon's Heart Helpers page here at the Kids Corner. Here are a few pictures of the latest donations:
These are just the donations that came to our office in Hong Kong. Many people donate online, and although we can't actually see their donations, they are just as meaningful and just as appreciated as those that we can photograph. Thank you so much to all of Jackie's wonderful fans!

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.
