Jackie Chan, the general chatter like a preacher preaching to his philanthropic theory, he does not deny some people will think that he was putting on a show. After all-star charity has long been regarded as a means of propaganda, in fact, some stars did. One of the Northwest region last year, looking for water-related activities, invited a large number of stars, many of whom have collected appearance fees. In fact, free-Star appearance would have been willing to due diligence, the Hong Kong every year organization "Star Yao Bao-liang," fund-raising, appearances will be followed by two young singers back in hand basket, went before the audience, who are not embarrassed pays for.
Reporter: When did you start to do charity? Jackie Chan Charity Cup is said that you do the Tour because of Moxi shoot, when to stay at home is too boring?
Jackie Chan: In the past the government wanted me to do, saying that a child wants to see you. At that time I was idol when I say 30 years ago, I said: "No, I have nothing to see it?" Filming to make money the most important. But I forgot hours the Red Cross gave me a big raise. Called many times, and finally I went once, that the moved. They arranged that those children had taken me hold me, say one for each host I am very ashamed, he said: "Jackie Chan's uncle is very happy to see you!" I am not delighted? "Jackie Chan's uncle in order to see that you bought a lot of gifts." That's a gift someone else to buy 呀! Have been cheated, I have been so ashamed. "If you want do not want to know what Jackie Chan's uncle bought a gift to you?" "If you want!" Ah! I do not know what is inside. I opened a sub to them, they thank my queue. At that time, I put to utter shame, the original whole event I have a lie, a sham. To the back repeatedly said, "Jackie Chan's uncle next year you will see us?" I said: "Yes, the whole event is false, this can not be false." That year I went back there, which I really over. Ball-like snowballing, and I said fans should not donate anything to me, like donate money, and then set up a fund developed to Hawaii, the United States, Japan, Jackie Chan fund. I would also like to honor the Americans give money only to local Chinese, and I hope that the fund is no race, no boundaries, regardless of color, it's that slowly grew and grew.
Reporter: In addition to donations what else way?
Jackie Chan: a hospital. I have two hospitals in Canada, San Francisco has a center for the elderly, many Chinese immigrants to go over there, sons and daughters of big run away, the elderly nobody. Australia to my mom named Science Center, a gym, too much.
Reporter: Yang Lan said, the charity can not be the basis of personal passion, must be the introduction of commercial mechanisms, how do you think?
Jackie Chan: Be sure to have. How much of my personal power? Not much only use my friends, relations, and now buy my films, distribution of my films, first promised to do charity. My agent brands of clothes, how much money each year to bring it to do charity, because you sell clothes, I know how much you can lie to me, but you do not deceive yourself. I moved so many people had never lied to me. Last year, my "Dragon trip" project, built more than a dozen schools, returned to Hong Kong have dinner, I took a picture to the big business bosses friends, seeing, see their tears on the spot has donated more than 200 million HK dollars .
Reporter: What to do charitable activities, difficulties in the public do not know? Such as fund-raising is difficult?
Jackie Chan: Fund-raising is definitely more difficult. People to spend money on is always difficult, and I come and go and raising money are always a few great friends, I can not always ask them to donate, but the endless charity work, how can the community do it? I have to do a Shanghai 8 million people in concert, Lohan easy to please please Guanyin, Guanyin please Lohan hard to find, out of 18 individuals each one is 18. Walking in the street, people tell you that you donate 100 to the Jackie Chan funds, people would certainly say: if it is true? Jackie Chan also need to donate money Mody? If the concert, 100 tickets, some people will buy a 10. Become a habit for so many years past, they do not believe me, now I say what they believed. Because I went to mountains, money and efforts, they see it.
Reporter: Why do not they believe you?
Jackie Chan: They do not believe that a very young person to do such a thing might be doing propaganda bar. I have no past performance to you see, your heart first thought was he was doing publicity. Today, so you do not think that there is no such "Baby," I will do in next month I went to Harbin, Nanjing, charity concerts, mid-to Shaanxi for them to build a primary school, the Jackie Chan Charitable works have I positive industry. There is also a desire, I have too many fans around the world last month, has received contributions from 19 countries, 15 languages, more than 30 kinds of coins, I think it's to build a peace park, whether in Yunnan, or the big cities, which Apart from loving the world, the greatest need is peace.
Reporter: Now, some people will use other people's love for profit, and even the beggars have a professional, you have not received any cheat?
Jackie Chan: too much. I give people to take advantage to do charity work, too, keep track of. A kind of rice will raise a hundred people, such persons will not be easy, I hope he will change the future. Everyone has good-hearted, a momentary greed would go a crooked path in hopes that through different channels to correct them.
Reporter: But relying on a person's strength can affect the world people?
Jackie Chan: I think so, not influence it does not matter, I have influenced my own, I am better, I am taking each step forward and every word I will be very loud speakers all over the world including Hong Kong Chief Executive, Chief Executive of Macao call me soon as Jackie Chan's older brother, I can stand the name. This is what I go now, everyone believed that I speak, I am happy, I fall asleep to sleep before you have done bad things, all I can not sleep. I photographed bad movies, cheating the audience, every film released, I saw the movie's name is very afraid of. I have to learn from our mistakes corrected, I hope that through this visit, the impact of those deceptive people.
Reporter: I had an eye for girls funded activities to see you cry like this kind of thing much?
Jackie Chan: That was a small cry, I cry Xilihuala last year in Yanbian, too many things that moved me. Look at your little girl eyes and dare not, and my mother said, for fear her mother worried that such a small girl would have thought that Hong Kong will be with her mother to a child what kind of phone. I went to Yanbian, so many deaf children use sign language to sing "A Hero Never Dies" and I watched them that there are no tears from tears, I have been crying, this is moving.
Reporter: You will use this moment in the movie good?
Jackie Chan: casually will be used in the movie.
Reporter: a kind of argument is that the foreign charity can be tax-free, but China's contributions to tax-free has not really implemented, how do you see?
Jackie Chan: Taiwan does not have duty-free Mody? I am a person who does not count, I have never thought about tax-free, how to avoid law I do not know.
Reporter: I heard you are a very saving people.
Jackie Chan: What's been saving, I am saving and I like to clean the degree can be annoying. Shampoo signs of shape I have to straighten out, I would like to make people around me so that they are afraid of me. If my brothers line up five individuals to urinate can not urinate finished according to each one, to five people finished with the press. 5 times on a dozen gallons of water, they do not imagine that it was water to do.
Reporter: Do you have the way to teach his son do?
Jackie Chan: I have asked Fang Zuming (Jaycee Chan) urine using a grid paper, stool with two grid paper. He came back from the United States to buy a new computer, I object, he was not happy. South Asia floods, Performing Arts's union sent him to, he came back to donate 30 million and says that he bought, I asked why, he said: "I find that they need clean water is more important than I need a computer." Big city child think that there is an open tap water, reaching there phones, it is not, we are suffering them there. We would like to eat a vegetable tofu to master playing, sleeping on the floor Exalted urine, cat urine all, is what I came for. A new generation of young people is not without rules, but for me, they do not have rules. Their culture is so, for me, is that no culture, we respect your teacher, they are all "Yeah!" (So Jay-style gestures)
