Celebrities do charities all the time, however, most of them do it under the spotlight of the media– as part of their PR. You could say that that is hitting two birds with one stone, but often the sincerest of good deeds never go recognized. Of course, if you are truly good, then you do not need to tell anyone, like what actor Keanu Reeves does with his secret charities.
Well, now they are not secret anymore. Still, the people he worked with has recently revealed that he had been doing secret charities for years all along. While it is a well-known fact that Reeves has always been one of the most generous actors in Hollywood, him doing such a kind deed without any media recognition does take the cake.
In fact, Reeves has a private foundation which he funds in secret and he revealed this during an interview with Ladies Home Journal, “I have a private foundation that’s been running for five or six years, and it helps aid a couple of children’s hospitals and cancer research. I don’t like to attach my name to it, I just let the foundation do what it does.”
Other deeds include making sure that his “grunt” co-workers in his movies are all well-fed with free breakfasts and free lunches.
Suffice to say, when he is not saving the human race from machines via the Matrix, he is helping people in secret and not bragging about it. Truly, not all heroes wear capes, some of them are hitmen which go on a murderous spree after someone kills their dog… the final sequel to that one would be charity enough.
