For several many years, Jet Li has labored very tough to get in which he is now in his profession.

And clearly his tough operate and resolve have paid off for him and his household.

But there is also yet another facet to Jet Li these as his charitable actions, notably right after his in close proximity to-demise experience in 2004 in the Maldives in the course of a tsunami.
