On 30 June, Chris Jones, one of JC Dragon’s Heart Europe’s UK partners, is bravely – or should that be rashly – undertaking a sparring challenge to raise money for charity. Chris is taking on 50 challengers. He says, ‘The more I get beaten up, the more money is raised!’.
Chris is raising money for JC Dragon’s Heart Europe; Save The Children and The British Heart Foundation. Chris knows that Jackie Chan has been told about this challenge – so, no pressure Chris!!!
We wish Chris all the very best and hope that as many of you as possible will support him. Good luck Chris from all the JC Dragon’s Heart Europe team!
On 13 April 2013, the Rotterdam Marathon Kids’ Run will be held.
Children from the age of 6 years are invited to take part in one of the following distances: 1 km or 2.5 km. If they run (or walk) for JC Dragon’s Heart Europe, 1 Euro of the 3.50 Euro entry fee will go directly to JC Dragon’s Heart Europe, all of which will be used to help fund the building of a school for the children at the Rwandan Orphans Project. (http://www.ropstories.org/?p=169) The other 2.50 Euros will go to the Marathon organisation.
Oh and by the way, there is a possibility that if 1,000 children take part, Jackie Chan himself may attend!
So why not join us and support JC Dragon’s Heart Europe and The Rwandan Orphans Project.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Thanks to everyone who helped make the ROP Christmas so wonderful – new shoes, underwear and sunglasses for each child; a new stereo for everyone to enjoy; great food; games; quizzes; dancing and cakes. We couldn’t have asked for a better Christmas and we couldn’t have done it without our wonderful donors and supporters! Thank you all!
Unfortunately owing to circumstances in Rwanda this year, The Rwandan Orphans Project (ROP) has struggled to find any local businesses and donors to sponsor the Christmas celebration for the 100 boys at the orphanage, allowing ROP to provide a special meal and a small paper sack with a few simple gifts like pens, notebooks for school, tennis ball, few sweets.
JC Dragon’s Heart Europe is pleased to contribute to the cost of giving the boys a special Christmas and would like to say a huge thank you to supporters, without whom they would not have been able to make this possible – thank you very much!
A big thank you to everyone who supported our charity gig in Leicester on 17 November – we can report it was a huge success! Many thanks also to The Platforms and Amy Lou for providing some great music!
Jackie recently held a meeting with some of the board members from the European branch of his Dragon’s Heart charity to discuss the charity’s work. He was particularly interested in the charity’s partnership with the Rwandan Orphan’s Project.
Our goals are:
As the European branch of Jackie Chan’s Dragon’s Heart Foundation, we are tasked with working in Europe and at Jackie’s specific request, also in Africa.
