Christmas Cards for Jackie Contest Ends
Thank you to everyone who sent in a Christmas card for Jackie (and Jones, and the JC Group, and the Webmaster, etc.). All the cards were wonderful and of course all deserve to win a prize. However, only three prizes will be awarded in three age groups. Stay tuned to the Kids Corner for announcement of the winners.

The Real Santa Jackie!
Here at the Kids Corner we are used to seeing Jackie dressed as Santa - usually the work of some talented artist. But today, Jackie took a minute from his busy schedule to pose with the JC Group Christmas tree!
This pose first:
...and then Jackie's imitation of Santa:
Here's what Jackie said when he struck this pose: "Draw me!" He was, of course, referring to the Kids Corner Halloween Costume contest. If anyone would like to draw Jackie as Santa, the Kids Corner would love to post your picture!

Wow! New Buddy Bears
Kyle from New York has sent in two very creative Buddy Bears to add to our collection. Click on his "Dragon Buddy" to see all the wonderful designs. Why don't you send in a Buddy Bear design? Jackie loves to see them and they're great fun to make. Maybe a Christmas Buddy Bear would be nice for the collection!

Jones Visits the Office
Visit Jones' Photo Album to see three new photos of the dog. He's gotten very big and he listens well. Jackie demonstrated a "down" command and Jones obeyed. After having a piece of apple and slobbering all over the staff, Jones was on his way in a tornado of golden fur!

Jackie Wants to Share Something With You
Recently Jackie was in Xinjiang, China for the opening of the school which he built for the poor children of the area. It was a joyful day with a lot of celebrating; everyone was so happy about the school and about Jackie being there. After Jackie returned to Hong Kong, he received two beautiful thank you notes from students at the SOS Children's Village in Xinjiang, and he wants to share them with you:
"Dear Uncle Jackie, How are you? I love you so much. I want to see your new movie. We all miss you!"
This card was signed by 8 different students who all thanked Jackie for giving them a beautiful new school.

New Feature at Kids Corner!
Jones the Golden Retriever asked if he could have a small section of the website where he could visit with some of his friends and fans. How could we say no? So now he has his own spot and soon he will add more fun things to the Clubhouse. If you would like to make a drawing or painting of Jones, send it in and Jones will put it in his Art Gallery. Right now the Art Gallery is empty - it's your job to fill it! Soon Jones will post some drawings from Kids Corner cartoonist Holly to add to the fun. Enjoy!
New Drawing in Art Gallery!

CLICK THE BANNER TO VIEW CARDS
Thank you to everyone for being patient while the webmaster got all the new postcards scanned, resized, and posted. Hope you enjoy all the beautiful sights from around the world. If someone would like to send a postcard to Jackie's "Postcards From the 'Hoods" section, please address it to:
Jackie Chan Kids Corner
If you just send it to "Jackie Chan" or to "The JC Group" the mail handlers in the office won't know that it's meant for the Kids Corner and you will most likely never see it on the website!!
IMPORTANT: Please (PLEASE!!! PLEASE!!! PLEASE!!!) write down what COUNTRY your postcard is from. Many postcards are either in a language the webmaster can't read OR they just have the town or village name but not the country. It takes twice as long to get the cards on the web if people don't write down the name of the country because the webmaster has to look them all up. YOU may know what country your town is in, but many people might not! Also, please make sure YOUR NAME is somewhere on the postcard. All these things will make it easier to get the cards posted.
One Month Left!!
There is plenty of time to send in your Christmas Card for Jackie. Please check out this year's cards:
On The Road With Jackie Chan: Shanghai
Many of you might know that the webmaster here at the Kids Corner is also the webmaster over at www.jackiechan.com and also that she works in Hong Kong at the JC Group Offices. If you would like to read about her fun trip to Shanghai and see lots of cool photos, click the banner below:

A Voice From the Past
Today we received a letter from an old fan of Jackie's whose work was featured here several years ago. He's a sixth grader from Texas and he was one of the kids who took part in a project for this website to illustrate a Chinese Fairy Tale. He says that he's still a big fan and has even begun studying martial arts because of Jackie! Jackie loves to hear from his fans - thanks for writing, Tanner.

November 3, 2005
All entries for the contest have now been posted and the judging will begin. As you know, Jackie, Willie, and Solon have agreed to do the job and that means that it could take some extra time. Please be patient as all the designs are printed out and presented to the JC Group for judging. Check back here in a few days to see the progress of the judging. Thanks! And thanks to everyone who sent in a design. Jackie really loved them!
