Last month, LookToTheStars.org brought you a story about action star Jackie Chan's song in honor of eight Chinese peacekeepers killed in Haiti. Chan has now blogged about the experience, and his personal donation to victims of the disaster.
“When I sang the song, tears almost came out of my eyes because I realized at that moment that these people sacrificed their lives for peace,” he wrote on his personal blog. "There are so many people around the world right now who are risking their lives for peace. I still don’t understand why so many countries are still fighting each other. Remember, we can choose our friends but we cannot choose our neighbors!
“Everyday, every year, there are so many natural disasters. I actually think that humans are the ones creating these disasters. Humans hurt the land, the sea, the forest, the river, the sky – everything! After I sang the song, I was unhappy for the whole night because so many things were running through my mind. After singing the song, I realized what I could do for Haiti! I immediately donated 5 million RMB (USD 732,351) to the families and the United Nations.”
Chan has also been nominated for three Green Globe Awards – Asian Cultural Ambassador of the Year, Asian Cultural Ambassador of the Decade, and 10 Outstanding Asians in Hollywood.
