Chinese action film star Jet Li on Thursday appealed for people to keep giving money for good causes despite the world economic crisis.
The "Lethal Weapon 4" star, who set up his own foundation after a brush with danger during the 2004 Asian tsunami, appeared at the Davos forum in Switzerland, to press his case for more action.
"I am not here to ask you for your money. I am here for your hearts. Even if the economy is down, you still have one yuan a month," he said at a meeting on philanthropy with former British prime minister Tony Blair and ex-US president Bill Clinton.
"Even if you have a million, you would still think it was not enough," added Li, whose One Foundation aims to help victims of natural disasters.
Li and his family were in a Maldives hotel which was flooded during the tsunami that swept across the Indian Ocean in December, 2004, killing about 220,000 people.Source: inquirer.net
