Hong Kong superstars Jackie Chan and Chow Yun-Fat have pledged money to charities helping victims of the tsunami that struck south-east Asia on Sunday (26DEC04) - and are encouraging others to do the same.

SHANGHAI NOON star Chan donated 500,000 Hong Kong dollars ($63,100/GBP33,200) and HARD BOILED star Fat gave 200,000 dollars ($25,250/GBP13,300) to UNITED NATIONS CHILDREN'S FUND (Unicef) coffers.

Chan, 50, says, "A token 500,000 is nothing for the disaster areas, but I want to have a spearheading effect.

"The accumulation of droplets becomes a river."
