When it comes to charity, Hongkong action superstar Donnie Yen prefers to make it a family effort.
Not only did the 56-year-old donate HK$1mil (S$180,000) to the Wuhan Charity Federation, he and his two younger kids, Jasmine and James, also worked together on a painting to cheer on everyone who has been affected by COVID-19.
Donnie went on to share more about the individual elements of the painting, saying, “The fist in the painting represents strength, while the heart is a symbol of love. The Yellow Crane Tower represents Wuhan. Hand-in-hand, the citizens will gather together, [and] we will definitely overcome this epidemic.”
Donnie is no stranger to raising money for a good cause, having been part of numerous charity galas with his family over the years. He also established his own fashion brand, where a portion of its earnings goes to welfare institutions supporting less-privileged children in Hongkong.
In other related news, Donnie’s latest movie, Enter The Fat Dragon, will be released exclusively online in China after its theatrical release in Chinese cinemas over the Lunar New Year holidays was axed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
For local audiences, the movie is still showing in theatres islandwide.
