Crystal Liu Yifei - permanent volunteer of "The One Foundation" disaster-relief Charity fund, participated in the "Promise" song

Yowza, more emails from "YKT" brimming with scoops & pics from "Wan Mei" and pics from "lyf4ever" as well!

First, FK = Forbidden Kingdom, and FK2 = Forbidden Kingdom part 2.
"Wan Mei" wrote: "There wouldn't another FK2, at least for this year because in the aftermath of the quake Jet Li announced he will not do any acting this year but focus on the One Foundation Fund.

The One Foundation is disaster-relief Charity fund co-founded by Jet Li and the Red Cross Society of China in 2007.

BTW, Liu Yifei is a permanent volunteer of the One Foundation. Jet Li is her recruiter (during filming of FK).

Edit by Wanmei: The official English name is 'Individual Long-Term Volunteer' but in Chinese it is 'Permanent Volunteer'

The entire list of permanent volunteers of the One Foundation can be found at: www.onefoundation.cn/html/en/volunteers.htm

Liu Yifei's name is the third one in the first line for those who can't recognize Crystal's name in Chinese."
Further to my post about Liu Yifei donating RMB 1,000,000 to children affected by earthquake below, "Wan Mei" adds a touching story of an anonymous taxi driver:
“Even giving 200 Yuan would not have been a small amount for this gentleman,” exclaimed a visibly moved Liu Yifei, as she held the bundle of RMB10 and RMB20 notes in her hands.

Apparently Yifei’s female assistant and another staff took a taxi to meet up with her during the donation event. In the course of conversation, the taxi driver learnt that Liu Yifei is giving away one million Yuan to children affected by earthquake.

Upon hearing this, not only did he refuse to charge taxi fare, he took out his collection of the day and handed 200 Yuan to Yifei’s assistant. He insisted that he wanted to donate the money and drove away without leaving his name or contact details
. Yifei’s assistant only managed to jot down his license plate number"
More touching reports follows: Crystal Liu Yi Fei participated in a music project called the "Promise" song to raise funds. Herewith, more details on this and the translation by "Wan Mei,"

"Some further information about this song:

Original Title: Boundless Oceans, Vast Skies
Music composed by Wong Ka Kui (1961-1993)
New Lyrics by Andy Lau Tak-Wah
Translation:
How many…How many joy taken away?
How many lives buried in a wink… [Jackie Chan]
Transformed into silence
Tears twinkle on the eyes
Dust and dirt on desolate faces (I rather it’s me)

Needless say… Behind you there is me…
Through rugged future I’ll stay with you [LYF and FBB]
There’s One of you…There’s One of me
Burden’s not a sign of weakness
Walk forward, for surely lies ahead - broaden is the path [Li Bingbing]
(You’ve still got me) [Quartet]
Partial translation by: Wan Mei
I have highlighted the part sang by Yifei (it is at times obscured by co-singer Fan Bingbing’s voice). I will leave the translation of the rest of the song to Andy Lau’s fans.
You can now download the song 'The Promise' by benbu.net
I believe the download link is provided by LYF's Thai fans.
However, be warned that Yifei’s segment is very short, she appeared at 00:50 seconds to 00:54 only in the MV.

(Hint for newbies for the pic above: Crystal Liu Yi Fei is not the lady with earrings. Crystal Liu Yi Fei is the one with darker hair)
