Using Celebrity Status to Good Use

Jet Li as Monkey King

I have always admired Jet Li in the movies as he skillfully whooshes through the air with his martial arts moves. Somehow his character on film is always admirable and his physical prowess are near super.

This is one of the reasons why I subscribed to his account in a popular social networking site ( I don't care much for celebrities online, truthfully.)

Recently he has been updating his account and I cannot help but admire him, this time in real life, as Jet Li shares his real life passion: Educating people about and supporting social causes. Though I subscribed to him to be updated in his work, now I am learning about the need for changing electricity consumption in China, Taiwan's worst flood in years with Morakot recently and Wuji - a health and fitness system.

Of course, there will always be a favorite organization or product or movie dropped here and there, but I don't care. What is important is one person cares about the improvement of the world, and that person can help inspire people to care too.
