My childhood hero Jet Li 李连杰 has become a global warrior for humanity. He is now a full-time relief worker. Yes, many celebrities do charity work, mostly in between albums or films. But Jet Li has completely walked off the job and immersed himself in philanthropy.
He set up the "One Foundation", which has become so successful that Harvard is studying how it got so big in just a year. I think he's hit the nail on the head. A charity that's totally accountable - you can see where every cent goes. Other charities might do well to take a leaf from it too.
I LOVE this article from Time Magazine
Times UK also wrote about their efforts for the Szechuan earthquake. http://women.timesonline.co.uk/tol/life_and_style/women/fashion/article5274774.ece
I'm glad he's found his passion and his calling. The world needs more love!
