Kids Corner Forum
So far the Kids Corner forum has been working pretty well, but there are still a few problems. Since it is a Registration Only message board, the Moderators have to approve new accounts. For some reason, the "Account Approved" emails that are generated sometimes give misinformation. For example, you might be told that "your account has been disabled by a staff member" or some other such message. Please be confident that this is not the case - often we never find out what the problem was. We have managed to get some members registered after trying many different things - deleting the account and trying over and over finally worked.
If you have a problem with your account, please send an email to Kath. That is the only way you will get any results. Any other problems with the forum, let us know!

Jackie Loves Kids
Well, it's not really a news headline - everyone who knows Jackie knows that he loves kids. We just wanted to share a few recent photos with you:
Tennis Star Serena Williams Loves Jackie
Her dog Jackie, that is. Of course those who know Serena know that she's also a big Jackie Chan fan. Could that be why she named her dog "Jackie?"

A Few Buddy Bears Have a Great Adventure!
There are some new Buddy Bears posted here at the Kids Corner and they have quite a story to tell! They were created by some little girls in Australia and their mom sent the bears to the Kids Corner in New York. They arrived there just before the Kids Corner webmaster moved to Hong Kong and they got lost in the shuffle of moving. Amazingly, they were discovered recently (they were hibernating on a bookshelf in Hong Kong!) and now they've made their way to the Kids Corner. Thanks to Katie, Sarah, Helen, and Megan for their patience.

Sharing Corner: Friends Across the Miles
Update to Kids Corner UNICEF Story
Click on the photo to read the update.
In Jackie's diary last month, he talked about a little girl who donated all her savings to help other children. When her friends saw what she'd done, they too donated money. Jackie said, "This is what I mean by leading the way, because if there wasn't someone leading the way, the children might not have done what they were doing." Well, when Jackie hears about what Alec has done (you have to read the story update to find out!) he will be overjoyed because this is exactly what he was hoping would happen. When one person starts something good going, others will follow. Congratulations to Alec for being a true Jackie's Kid! Click on his photo above to read the update!

Kids Corner Kids Make News in China
The two little kids up in the right hand corner of the Oriental Daily Newspaper are the two who were featured on the Kids Corner several weeks ago. When Jackie saw them, he was very touched and the story was picked up by the newspaper. Congratulations to Natalie and Ryan (and their caregiver, Lisa S. - a frequent Kids Corner contributor). We're all very proud of their efforts! Here's the translation:
Jackie is Pleased That the New Generation is Helping
Many people lost their homes and families in the Asian tsunami. People from the Hong Kong Entertainment Industry tried their best to help the survivors, especially Jackie, who donated more than $HK 1 million. A girl and boy in America were influenced by Jackie's good deeds, and they became "charity ambassadors" and are raising money for the victims.
The kids asked for help to gather photos of Jackie's visits to the disaster areas. They made a photo album [poster] and asked people to donate money for the victims.
Jackie was very happy to hear this news from UNICEF [this was a mistake - Jackie saw the featured children on the Jackie Chan Kids Corner website]. He said, "I feel very touched and happy. Actually I just try to help people who are in need; I don't expect the next generation will learn from me! It is really an encouragement to me and I feel more confidence to do more charity work in the future."

Rush Hour 3 Stocks Rise!
Over at the Hollywood Stock Exchange, stock in Rush Hour 3 is rising! Does that mean that some Hollywood insiders have hopes that the movie will be made? There has been a lot of talk about this movie, but nothing has been signed. But if we believe the stocks, then maybe we should keep our fingers crossed, right?
