Last week, the action star shot a public welfare advertisement for Ya’an Meng Ding Mountain Tea Leaves, in support of the earthquake struck area of Ya’an. The Jackie Chan Charitable Foundation also donated RMB $3 million to assist with constructing new houses in Ya’an, and ordered materials especially designed to withstand earthquakes and other natural disasters that will be delivered to the area immediately.
“To the elderly people living in the Ya’an disaster area, I’d like you all to know that I specially ordered some modern style houses that is designed to withstand earthquakes and any other type of natural disaster,” said Chan. “The houses are leaving Beijing today and are on the way to being delivered to Ya’an! Within the next two months, the new houses will be ready for you to use. What surprised me the most was when I visited the factory in Beijing today, many new and old friends donated money and materials when the delivery trucks prepared to leave for Ya’an. Not only will we be constructing houses for the people in Ya’an, we will also be delivering essential daily items to the area on a regular basis. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the people who participated in the operation today. Thank you all!”
