We Are One

"For the past 46 years, I have been searching for the meaning of life. But now, I know that I can do my best to help our global family, our ONE family. Thank you for being with me here, and let's join hands to build a better future."

Just yesterday I was watching the news on CCTV and heard about Jet Li's One Foundation and that tomorrow, May 12th, will be the anniversary of the devastating 2008 Sichuan Earthquake. This is a week of remembrance for many as so those persons have lost a lot of things precious to them in the earthquake last year: families & homes.

Jet Li's One Foundation is partnered with the Red Cross Society of China and was founded by, of course, Jet Li, a Red Cross ambassador.

The foundation believes that: 
“1 person + 1 dollar/yuan + 1 month = 1 big family”. 
If each person donates at least one dollar/yuan each month, our individual donations can be transformed into a much greater fund. When we combine our charitable strength, we can make sure that the most vulnerable members of our global family will receive the help they need.

Many are still working hard to rebuild their lives. Others still suffer and have difficulty moving on from the past. But whoever it may be, for those who lost in the Sichuan Earthquake, I send my prayers out to them.
