Idy Chan and several friends led the charity mission to Sichuan and spent over 2 months helping the children in many areas affected by the earthquake like Beichuan, Dujiang and Mianyang. Earlier Idy said “We went to many poor places that in need a lot of help, and it’s really fate that we were able to raise money to buy books for the children to study, if there’s a child gifted in acting, I really can help him to enter the showbiz”
Idy expressed concerns that many of the earthquake victims still haven’t yet received the aide with the amount of 250 CNY [~36 USD] per person as promised by the government.
Chow Yun-Fat recently has released a book of photographs for sales and the proceeds will be donated directly to help the victims of the Sichuan earthquake, “If he invites me [to the photo exhibition], I would go, I believe everyone has their own ways to help, doesn’t matter if giving money if one can afford, or sharing the work if can do.” (Appreciating his work?) “I’ve always appreciated him, he’s good person and nice to everyone. I remember back in the TV days, he’d treat colleagues to meals.”
And to elaborate on the earlier report: Muddy roads and rainy conditions didn’t stop Idy go to Lueyang to check in with the children and the plans to help them. Idy and friends have planned out to sponsor about 8 children from the age of 8-18 years old with their joint contributions. Idy even had to introduce herself to the children “Do you know who I am?” “Yes, you’re Little Dragon Girl auntie”, the children answered in unison.

Idy Chan as one of the special guests on good friend Carol “Dodo” Cheng’s new show “Outsmart” which focuses on financial advices and stock investment. Idy expressed that she doesn’t really invest by buying stock, but instead of savings “If I have 10 bucks, it’s still 10 bucks in my savings, by investing I’d make 100, but possible that it’d also be dried out too” (Dodo has lost of some money?) “She’s smart, she’ll gain back very soon”
