Kung-fu star Jet Li held a star-studded charity night in Hong Kong this week for his beloved 'One Foundation'.

Celebrity's including Andy Lau, talk show host Chen Luyu, and Hong Kong director Johnnie To attended the event to raise money for the cause.

The "Expendables" star said that the event was a celebration of One Foundation's decade long hard work.

"Because it's been ten years, so we use this opportunity to commemorate this occasion. We also wanted to show our gratitude towards all those who participated and supported us from the beginning. Because without them, there wouldn't be a One Foundation in China."

Li started the One Foundation in 2005, after narrowly escaping death during a family vacation in 2004 when a tsunami struck the Maldives.

Since then, the foundation has provided relief funds to victims of other natural disasters such as the 2008 Sichuan, China earthquake, and the 2009 Taiwan flood.
