Between the 7th and 12th July 2017, a tour was organised by Spanish Jackie Chan fan, Antonio Ramírez Santandreu (Jackie Chan Spain) to visit locations in and around Madrid and Barcelona that were used in the films Wheels on Meals and Armour of God II: Operation Condor, along with other places of cultural interest.
The tour was a great success and was attended by fans from the following countries – Chile, England, Estonia, Germany, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Spain and Uzbekistan.
During the tour, one of the many fun events that took place was a charity auction which was hosted by Silke. Items for the auction were donated by the fans and The JC Group. These included collectors magazines, JC socks, action figure dolls, posters and other rare items. Over 700 Euros was raised from the auction and more has also been donated.
We at Jackie Chan’s Dragon’s Heart Europe would like to thank Antonio for organising this tour, and all the fans who attended and contributed to making this a great event.
Finally, we would also like to thank the sponsors: Zafiro Hotels, Norma Comics, Glups and SelectaVisión.
The fans were delighted to find this building …
Two years ago, a dedicated Jackie Chan fan, Antonio Ramírez Santandreu, had a vision that Jackie Chan fans from around the world could visit some of the most iconic locations in Spain where the movies, Operation Condor (1991) and Wheels on Meals (1984), were filmed.
Well, this week Toni’s vision has become a reality as fans from 8 different countries will be doing just that!
After much organising during those two years, over 20 fans will visit these memorable locations in Madrid, Segovia and Barcelona. Buses have been booked to get the group around together with a venue for dinner in the evening should the fans wish to take part.
We are delighted to hear that Toni has also agreed to a Charity Auction with any profits going to Jackie’s Dragon’s Heart Europe charity; we would like to thank Toni for agreeing to this.
We are sure everyone will have a great time, and we can’t wait to see some of the photos. Stay tuned …
We would like to thank everyone who bought one of our unique Jackie Chan Dragon’s Heart Europe 2017 calendars. We are very grateful for your support as this will enable us to continue paying the salary for a teacher at the Rwandan Orphans Project.
As is our tradition, all photos have been taken by Jackie’s fans as they travel the world!
Thank you very much for your help!
We recently mentioned our 2016 Calendar Sale on Facebook stating that we would soon have some news about it. Well, the sale starts now!
We are delighted to say that the Wall Calendar has a new design for next year and all the photos are of worldwide places where Jackie has filmed. The Desk Calendar contains photos of Jackie Chan’s hometown – Hong Kong.
Once again, all photos are taken by fans, and although the text is in German, it is still worthwhile buying one as you will have some beautiful photos to look at throughout the year!
All proceeds of the sale will go to JC Dragon’s Heart Europe, and will help us to continue supporting a very worthwhile cause – The Rwandan Orphans Project in Kigali, Rwanda.
They urgently need our help because the Orphanage is facing eviction!
The prices for the calendars are now 17.50 Euro for the Wall Calendar, and 12.50 Euro for the Desk Calendar. Both prices include the worldwide shipping.
Payment is possible by (international) bank transfer and Paypal.
If you are interested in these calendars, please contact email@example.com with your order and/or for more details.
Our sincere thanks go to Chris Jones and his Martial Arts Centre for the recent donation following the “Tough Mudder” challenge and collection – £465!
Thank you very much for this wonderful donation – you guys have come through for us again and we really appreciate it!
In August, UK Board members Jane, Gail and Ben visited with Alex of Yin Yang Martial Arts School in Fleet, Hampshire, UK.
Alex is keen to fundraise for JC Dragon’s Heart Europe and came up with some exciting and innovative ideas.
We are grateful to Alex for his support and look forward to working with him and his team in the future.
We were delighted to hear that on 1st August 2015, several students from Chris Jones Martial Arts are taking part in a mentally and physically challenging obstacle course called Tough Mudder to raise money for JC Dragon’s Heart Europe.
If you are able to spare a little to help and encourage them, please visit this link to support their efforts http://www.gofundme.com/CJMAATOUGHMUDDERS
We would like to thank all of them for their great initiative, and wish them lots of luck!
UK board member and organiser Jane has come up with a novel way of raising funds for the charity. She has become an independent distributor for the Organo Gold range of healthy drinks and has pledged to donate all profits to the charity.
Please visit her website www.red-dragon88.myorganogold.com where you can buy your healthy coffee (and tea and chocolate!), knowing that you are not only helping your health but also helping support our charity projects.
Chris Jones of Chris Jones Martial Arts, Knaresborough in the UK, organised a fundraising event amongst his students and their friends/family during Comic Relief earlier this year.
A fantastic amount of £221 was donated to the charity which we are delighted with!
Many thanks to everyone who supported JC Dragon’s Heart Europe in this initiative, and especially Chris for organising it.
We have received a lot of support from people for the recycling program in the Netherlands.
One of them is Tino Anraad from Rotterdam. He donates the paper and clothes he receives through his foundation, Opnieuw, to our charity. We pick it up and deliver it to be recycled. The money we receive goes to JC Dragon’s Heart Europe.
The Opnieuw Foundation is engaged in the recycling of used goods through their store, Dopey’s Place.
Tino is no stranger to us. He has already supported the Charity evening which we held in Rotterdam last year with his band, Eydie & Company.
Koos and his foundation ‘Cirkeltje Rond’ donate paper and clothes, and is also engaged in the recycling of used goods through his second hand shop at Hudsonstraat 75-89 in Rotterdam.
JC Dragon’s Heart Europe would like to thank Tino and Koos very much for their contribution and support.
