Hong Kong veteran actor Chow Yun-fat (Curse of the Golden Flower) is planning to donate his fortune to charity after he passes away. Chow said recently that he and his wife have no plans to have a child after their baby girl was tragically miscarried. As for his roughly 1-billion-yuan property, the 52-year-old says that they plan to donate all their money to charity.

He says that since the fortune was given by society, it was natural to use it for the good of society. However, the couple has not decided how to use the money for charity. Chow had revealed that his wife wanted to set up a foundation to help the needy and she was talking with their lawyer about the specific measures.

Hong Kong superstar Jackie Chan also announced last year that he would donate half of his property to charity on his death.
