Action Star Jackie Chan Travels To Mongolia For Charity Work
The action star, who has been featured on Ecorazzi numerous times for working with environmental and animal organizations, recently visited Mongolia where he and his organization The Jackie Chan Charitable Foundation have vowed to get involved.
“Mongolia has some of the worst air pollution in the world and even before I landed, I could see the smog,” writes Chan on his blog. “The new government wanted to do promotion for clean air and asked me to help out. I didn’t just want to come to Mongolia to do one thing, so I asked if I could do charity as well.”
Jackie goes on to offer a pictorial of his journey in Mongolia and shares some of the experiences he encountered while abroad.
Chan writes: “A lot of people said to me, ‘Jackie, thank you for coming to Mongolia.’ I said, ‘Why not? The planet belongs to us. I am the citizen of the world.’ If every person thought that they belonged to the planet, they would treat every country as if it were their own country. They would treat people as their own people, no matter if they were white, black, red or yellow. Also if we belonged to the planet, we would treat the environment better too.”
