Jackie Chan has been busy with charity work over the last few weeks.

He recently took time out to visit a Po Leung Kuk (Society for the Protection of Women and Children) center in Hong Kong, where he visited with mentally disabled children, playing and talking with them. You can find photos of the visit here.

This week, Jackie attended a ceremony to kick off a special donation drive at the Po Leung Kuk in Hong Kong, where he encouraged people to donate to help raise funds and awareness for children with disabilities.

The drive, called " Every Little Bit Creates A Future" will raise funds to provide early training, equipment, and rehabilitation to create a better tomorrow for children in need.

On October 30, Jackie donated replicas of 12 Zodiac Heads to replace those that were lost from the Yuanmingyuan (Summer Palace) in Haidian District of Beijing. The statues will be on permanent display at Yuanmingyuan. Jackie expressed his happiness at finally having the zodiac heads returned to the garden, which has been his dream since he first heard the story of the missing statues. View photos here.

On November 3, Jackie was awarded the Social Philanthropist of the Year award by Harper’s Bazaar Men’s Style magazine in China. Speaking at the awards ceremony, Jackie told the audience that his many years of charity work have been fulfilling and have taught him to be a better person.
