Lots of News at the Kids Corner!
Wow! Jackie's fans have been so busy lately and there's a lot to read about here at the Latest Kids Corner News.
As you probably know, Jackie has been filming his latest movie project in China. While we were in China, Jackie got a chance to spend time looking through his websites and he is thrilled with all the involvement from his fans, both kids and adults. What are his favorite things from fans? Stories of raising money for the Dragon's Heart Charity, Buddy Bear designs, drawings in the Art Gallery, and stories from the Sharing Corner. Jackie wants to thank all his fans for contributing to the website and of course he encourages you to continue.
Check back soon because we will have a new drawing project from Petra!
Build a School Project Gets a Big Boost:
New Total = $26,530 !!
Although donations for Jackie's Build a School for a Dollar project have slowed down a bit, there are still some dedicated fans who continue to support this good cause. Several fans donate regularly through our online donation page, others send money to our office, while still others send us news of events they've organized for the benefit of Jackie's charity.
A group from Germany recently held a Day of Calligraphy to benefit Dragon's Heart. You can read all about it here:
Also in Germany, a group of fans got together and held a fan party. They sent us photos, a video, and a generous donation to the Dragon's Heart Foundation.
After reading our Scrapbook articles about the Dragon's Heart Charity trips, a young woman in New Zealand asked customers at the restaurant where she worked to help out. She ended up with US$100 from the customers' donations plus the tips she earned for the day.
Several teachers sent donations that their students made.
The list goes on and on. Children sending in a dollar from their allowance. People donating anonymously or in the name of someone they love.
There were so many creative and wonderful ways that people helped! When Jackie saw the latest donations, he was very moved and said that if he could, he would thank each and every person individually who has helped the Dragon's Heart Foundation.
Here's a photo of our recent donations:
More Buddy Bear Thank Yous
We love hearing from people who have won prizes in our contests. Thank you all for taking the time to send greetings and photos. Jackie saw all of the email from fans who won our recent Buddy Bear contest and he was delighted (he really was!). Here are a few more thank you greetings from fans:
From Zhao Ai, China:

From Autumn, USA:
According to a note from Autumn's parents, Jason and Brandi, the second she received her Buddy Bear, she ran to her room and drew Jackie a picture:
From Khalie, USA
Khalie's Grandma writes: I asked Khalie how she felt about getting her darling little bear in the mail and she said she loves Jackie and wants to go to China and meet him to say thank you in person. Between her and her brother Tyler who sent his only dime to Jackie for the poor children, I have a feeling we will meet him face to face one of these wonderful days. She also said "Jackie, please do not get hurt anymore in your movies, because it makes my Grandma cover her eyes and scream!"
From Petra, Germany:
Thank you so much for choosing my Hair-Bear among the winners. Once the statue is colored I will send a photo. Dankeschön!
From Raoni Chomel, France:
I want to thank Jackie and the team at JC Kids which sent this prize. For me, this small bear is great (big) because when I think that Jackie chose my drawing personally, I feel so happy because you see with your own eyes my works. Thank you very much, 謝謝.

Build a School For a Dollar: Almost One-Third There!
In less than a year, Jackie's friends and fans have helped raise almost US $25,000 for the Build a School For A Dollar Project. Wow! We're just about one-third of the way to actually building a school for poor children in remote China. Dollar by dollar we are getting closer to our goal.
Jackie was very happy to hear about the latest total. He wants to thank each of you for helping and encourages you to keep on helping with whatever you can donate. If you think that your donation is not big enough, you are wrong! Don't forget that when all the money is put together, it really adds up. Most of the donations for this project were one dollar and look at what has happened!
Reminder: Buddy Bear Contest Ends in Two Days!

New on the Sharing Corner
Read a great story about friends who found each other through a common interest - Jackie! You may wonder why we feature a story of adult friendship on our Kids Corner. Well, we're all kids at heart and we also know that many kids have made friends in much the same way that Annie and Dagmar have. We hope that featuring their story here at the Kids Corner will inspire kids of all ages to share their Jackie Friendship Stories!
