For those of you who think that Jackie Chan is more of a fighter than a lover…well this story will prove you wrong!! In the past Ecorazzi told you all about Jackie’s participation in a series of green and humanitarian activities that really make us SMILE. Earlier this year Jackie spoke to the youth in Timor-Leste about using martial arts as a peaceful, unifying force. He also opened a segway dealership in Hong-Kong in an effort to bring more clean technology to China. Most recently Jackie worked with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to grant the wish of a 14-year-old boy from Australia who’s suffering from a brain tumor
About the Make-A-Wish Foundation Jackie says, “Over the past ten years, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has received amazing support from people of all walks of life, benefiting quite a few children and their families. Wishes made by these seriously ill children can be as small as a request for a little gift or as big as a trip overseas. Among the wishes, quite a few sick children hope for a chance to meet their favorite idol and there have been many famous people who’ve assisted and participated with the services offered by Make-A-Wish. I’m also involved in assisting the cause because I hope through the Make-A-Wish experience, the lives of seriously ill children can be filled with hope, willpower, and happiness. The thing that delights us the most is that there are many cases which have proven how a child becomes more optimistic and positive towards fighting their illness after having their wish come true.”
The Make-A-Wish Foundation was started in 1980 and for the past 28 years has granted otherwise impossible wishes to children and young people suffering from life-threatening illnesses. To learn more visit Wish.org!
