On Sept. 21, 2010, Mr. Jet Li and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) formally announced that Jet Li has become a Goodwill Ambassador for the IFRC, marking the first time in history that the international humanitarian organization has granted such an appointment.
Mr. Li has always believed that humanity is one big family, and that we must all do our part to make this family better. In this spirit, he founded One Foundation in 2006. As a 21st century non-profit organization, One Foundation seeks to encourage social sector development and broad-based participation in philanthropy as a way of life. One Foundation has promoted a micro-philanthropy model, advocating “every 1 person + every 1 month + donates 1 dollar/yuan = 1 big family,” and has achieved meaningful recognition both in China and internationally.
Mr. Li also deeply respects the core principles and mission of the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement, especially its spirit of “Humanity, Universal Fraternity and Devotion.” In becoming a Goodwill Ambassador for the IFRC, Mr. Li builds upon his extensive relationship with the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement, having served as “Philanthropic Ambassador” for the Red Cross Society of China since 2006.
As Goodwill Ambassador, Mr. Li would like to share One Foundation’s experience and philanthropic model with the rest of the world. Each country’s Red Cross and Red Crescent societies are welcome to extract any useful lessons and adapt them to suit their particular culture, customs and needs. In sharing his ideas and experience, Mr. Li hopes to support the IFRC’s noble humanitarian goals, as well as strengthen international cooperation and caring as one global human family.
