Chace Crawford's reach truly is international.
The former Gossip Girl star was in China last week on a business trip, but he made sure to take some time to visit the Special Education Center of Children's Palace, a school for children with special needs in the city of Guangzhou.
Crawford spent an afternoon with the students in a choir class and arts classes.
"The kids were very excited to have him there and even prepared songs to sing for Chace," a source says. "They also presented him with a piece of artwork drawn by one of the students."
And as soon as word got out Crawford was at the school, several hundred fans rushed over to try to get a photo of the hottie and his autograph.
Crawford also was a guest at the anniversary celebration for the Happy Valley mall, also in Guangzhou.
Last month, Crawford was spotted in L.A. filming Undrafted, an indie film about a promising young baseball player costarring Teen Wolf hunk Tyler Hoechlin.
