Given his heavy workload, you'd think Aaron Kwok Fu-shing was saving up for another fancy supercar or diamond-studded watch. But the Canto-pop idol, who is working on four movies this year and plans a concert series at the end of the year, still finds time for a good cause.

'I've always liked kids,' Kwok said on Tuesday at the launch of a fund-raising programme for the United Nations' children's charity Unicef.

'I believe they [Unicef] recognised that I have the potential [to be a father] when they made me an ambassador.'

The charity programme, called 'Change for Children', involves an initiative endorsed by more than 30 members of the Hong Kong Hotels Association. Guests staying at the hotels can donate money at the reception desk to help children and women on the mainland and in other developing countries.

Kwok played happily with the child models at the event but has no plans to settle down before he's made enough money to support a family.

'I don't really know how much money I've made. I only know that it's not yet enough for me to [get married and have children]. Plus, I want to help as many children in need as possible.'
