The “Red Cross Society of China Jet Li One Foundation Project”
(Jet Li One Foundation)
was founded by Red Cross ambassador Jet Li, under a strategic partnership
with the Red Cross Society of China. The Jet Li One Foundation Project
works independently to pursue its charitable mission and agenda.
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.
Embodying the Red Cross’ spirit of humanity and philanthropy, we
believe that in helping others we will also find our own happiness.
Starting in China, our goal is to build a sustainable, professional,
and trustworthy foundation platform to encourage social sector development
and bring out mass participation in philanthropic giving and volunteerism.
According to statistics, China is one of the countries that suffers from
a lot of disasters. On average, almost 200 million people are affected and nearly
60 million need help each year. The records of direct economic
losses in 1998 and 2005 were 3.007 billion and 2.042 billion.
Philanthropy Awards & Philanthropy
The foundation’s four pillars of focus are: education, health, environment,
and poverty (in no particular order). To promote the professional
development of social sector and social enterprise work in China,
we will launch an annual China Philanthropy Awards. The awards will
find the top foundations and charities in China and provide grants
for them to continue their work and scale their operations. We will
provide a transparent process so that grant seekers will know exactly
why an award was given.
In addition, each year, we will hold an annual conference to bring
together relevant individuals, non-profit organizations, corporations
and government leaders to discuss the issues that pertain to our
four pillars. The goal is to help provide a valuable platform for
key stakeholders to network,share best practices and exchange
One Foundation operates under international best practice standards
of accountability, transparency, and responsibility to ensure that
donations made will reach those in need. Global Big Four accounting
firm Deloitte is supporting the foundation by providing independent
audits of the
financial records. In addition,
we have received the long-term support of a global top-tier management
and strategic consulting firm. The foundation issues quarterly updates
and annual reports to the public.
There is only ONE Earth. Each of us has only ONE life. We share
the planet, and that makes us ONE global family. By helping others,
we are also helping ourselves. Together we can overcome any challenge
or difficulty. We encourage you to join us and help support the
